Ian Holm recently released his thoughts on Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings films upon his return from New Zealand. Here's what The Irish Times said:
Holm, who recently returned from New Zealand after five weeks filming his role in The Lord of the Rings, is oozing with enthusiasm about Peter Jackson's big-budget film trilogy based on the Tolkien novels. "I'm not allowed to say much about it but it's going to make Star Wars look like a weekend in the lavatory," Holm says. "There are 130 special effects people and it's brilliant, absolutely brilliant."
