I just finished watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Awesome movies, but one thing annoyed me. Gandalf. Why? Almost no magic during all three movies.
Every time a large battle happened or a situation got desperate I was waiting for him to just... fucking... UNLEASH hell. He didn't. Ever. Not once.
Why not? I'm not really sure. for a while I thought he was just very careful with his magic. Only using it when absolutely necessary. Which is to be admired in a wizard I would imagine but... it just didn't happen at all. Very disappointing.
