Minor flaws aside, LOTR proves itself one of the most successful trilogies in modern film
In Return of the King - which follows the book (that I have not read, though heard what is in it that is not in the film) as close if not closer than the past two - co-writer/co-producer/director Peter Jackson brings Tolkien's grand tale of the quest to destroy the ring to an end. The story strands follow along the similar linear paths of the others, and it is done so with an equal worth in entertainment. Frodo, Sam and Gollum's path to Mordor unfolds as almost something of a love triangle for the ring; Merry and Pippen follow their own tales towards the great battle; Gandalf, Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, and all the dwellers of middle earth prepare for the swarm of the terrors of Sauron.

There is much praise that should be given to Jackson and his crew/cast on not just the worth of Return of the King, but to what is now the entire saga of the Lord of the Rings as a whole. Though the film does carry quite a load to it (at three hours and twenty-one minutes it's the longest of the three in theatrical form, and it definitely does go on at least ten to fifteen minutes longer than it should), and expands and deflates on the details of some characters (i.e. Saruman is nowhere in sight in this version, while Arwen gets more than what is from the original work), there are plenty of rousing scenes and sequences, terrific battles, and a grasp on the visual effects as a whole that don't let up. In all, ROTK is on the level with Fellowship and Two Towers, making the parts as good as the whole. This is something that only several other filmmakers can make a claim to, that one film does not bring on a let down from the expectations that preceded it. It's the kind of film I'll want to see again, however it would be very difficult to sit through it in one place. Grade: A (both as a picture in and of itself, and overall on the three epics combined)
The Greatest Movie Ever Made.
Without a single doubt, 'The Lord Of The Rings' is the best film trilogy ever, and 'The Return Of The King' is the best of the best, and in my opinion there is nowthing better than this film. It's dramatic, tense, climactic, exciting and just sinply wonderful, which is everything you want in a film. Peter Jackson has earned the name of my favourite film director ever.
Peter Jackson's odyssey comes to a welcomed conclusion
The ring is destroyed! Middle Earth is saved! Hobbits and Elves rejoice!

Peter Jackson's masterful odyssey that began 11 years ago is complete with the release of the third installment of the Lord of the Rings, Return of the King (ROTK).

Peter Jackson's love affair with the J.R.R. Tolkien story is complete with the third film installment, Lord of the Rings: Return of the King (ROTK). Audiences have waited through three years of release dates, countless DVD editions and marketing tie-ins to view what is essentially one long 11+ hour movie. And at the end of it all, I too found myself rejoicing - rejoicing that the third movie finally ended!

Lord of the Rings: ROTK is both good and bad with the good being exceptional, but the bad, being prominent enough not to be overlooked. First the good. Ian McKellan as the wise wizard Gandalf is the best he has been in ROTK. Gandalf transformed from being a new generation's Obi Wan Kenobi - as all wise and more powerful after death - to being a vulnerable participant in a future unknown. A scene shared with Viggo Mortensen's Aragon shows Gandalf to be scared for Frodo (Elijah Wood) and Aragon must reassure him to follow his heart. This is Ian McKellan at his best and if he was good enough to garnish an Oscar nomination for the first Lord of the Rings, then he should be assured one with ROTK.

Also showing more acting range that was expected of him is Sean Astin in the role as Sam, the Hobbit that accompanies Frodo on his journey to Mount Doom. Sean shows courage, heart and conflict and we believe in the conviction that the young actor put into his role.

Also on the plus side are the fight scenes in ROTK. The great battles in the Pelennor Fields, Minas Tirith and the Black Gates are speckled with special effects mastery never before seen on the big screen. Kudos also to Mr. Jackson for the amount of humor that was absent from the previous two installments. Seeing Gandalf react to an overeager Pippin (played by Billy Boyd) put the audience into an outburst of laughter - a response not yet heard in the first 9 hours of storytelling.

And finally, and most importantly, the story receives note for being the strongest of the three. With many balls in the air to juggle, Peter Jackson weaves the story through Frodo's trek to Mount Doom with the ever-schizophrenic Gollum, Aragon's journey to regain the throne and Rohan's King Theoden search for an army to wrestle the evil Orcs just to name a few. All stories are equally interesting and Jackson is able to stay true to the novel in bringing the story to the masses.

But not all is good with ROTK. The special effects in the final film are average, that being, not on scale with what was presented in 2001 and 2002. Some effects actually look terrible. The scene where Legolas (Orlando Bloom) is able to get atop a giant elephant looked cheap and unrealistic, and his subsequent dismount which was suppose to appeal to the skateboarders in the audience looked like the promo for some average Sony Playstation game. And Aragon's confrontation with the ghosts of a disgraced army looked like it was cut and paste from Jackson's previous film, The Frighteners.

Also notable was the amount of blue screen images used in the finale. Aragon in front of the army at the Black Gates or Frodo's gaze into the fires of Mount Doom looked terrible when compared to some of the film's other effect achievements.

Then there is the ending. All of them! In a DVD world where extended versions are widely accepted as superior to the original cut, I would have enjoyed ROTK more had the last 30 minutes be struck from the record. After sitting through 3 hours, I had run out of popcorn and was restlessly waiting to use the restroom, but Peter Jackson marched each of his characters out for a curtain call of hugging, bowing, kissing and crying that I thought was completely unnecessary (Do we really need to see Sam get married?).

However, for all its faults, ROTK is intended as one long film adventure and at that, it is exceptional. Peter Jackson had an incredible undertaking in front of him, and unlike the Star Wars or Matrix franchises, The Lord of the Rings was able to maintain a constant tone and feel through its multiple components. For that alone, I take my hat off and salute you.

So it is finally time to take a breath. Or is it? Next year there will be the DVD release of Return of the King followed by the theatrical extended version, then the DVD extended version, then the DVD box set, then the DVD box set with all the extended features. Maybe if we are lucky, someone will rifle through the old house of J.R.R. Tolkien and find the unpublished works of Sam the Hobbit:Journey to Neverland Ranch.
This is The Movie
What can I say? I've read a lot of what other people said about this movie. Some positive reviews but other not so appreciative. This is why I've decided to write a review myself, even after so many years since this movie was released... I felt I owe to it at least that...

I did not grew up with Celtic tales as I'm not from that part of the world. However, as a kid, I've read a lot of tales, from my own folklore but also from other regions as well: European, Far East, Middle East, American, South American, you name it. The Lord of the Rings was not one of them and I didn't knew anything about it until I saw The Fellowship of the Ring. From that moment on, I just couldn't wait for the next release each Christmas. When finally I found the book translated, I bought it and read it. All three movies were already seen by then but I've still read it.

For all of J.R.R Tolkien fans, yes, the movie doesn't respect the tale in every aspect. Yes, Bombadil is missing. Yes, the swords of the hobbits are not carried by Aragorn and we could keep on this way for hours BUT... what would be the point for that? I'm speaking about the movie, not the book.

LOTR (the whole trilogy) is The Movie. Even after I read the book, I cannot think of a better way to put this huge story on screen. For all those who are upset because the movie does not respect 100% the book: guys, we are speaking about 9 hours of film to put the whole story in a coherent form! Something had to be cut, something had to be "adapted" to make this movie enjoyable and not boring. My opinion is Peter Jackson and his entire crew did the best job it could have been done.

The cast is almost perfect, starting from Frodo and Gandalf and ending to the last elf, orc or hobbit. Very good acting using an excellent script, giving to the movie a touch of Shakespeare drama. Breathtaking landscapes and cinematography, superb costumes and design, a music that surely will be subject of study by film music composers for many years! Great CGI, I have to say it because I've seen a lot of movies where CGI ruined everything! Here is not the case! Each of the three part made me to be there, in the middle of the story. I was Frodo, Gandalf, Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, even Saruman or Gollum. I felt like I could ride Shadowfax, shake hand with Elrond or take a tour of Minas Tirith on foot. I've lived every single battle, slaying orcs aside Theoden or Faramir. After three hours, the only thing I wished for was to continue the adventure for another three hours.

11 Oscars? I guess this tells us everything about the movie...

Maybe it's not the perfect movie. For me, however, it's the best I've ever seen so far! Thanks to all the LOTR crew for this precious gift!
A legitimately great movie
An adventure movie to match the great ones of the past, and the one to beat for the future. The culmination of this ambitious trilogy is more than fitting; it surpasses the first two films by quite a distance. Almost nothing disappointed or bothered me. All parts of the story were equally interesting. It was sweeping, it was involving, it was beautiful. One of the few thing I would complain about is the villain. Sauron is boring and more or less unseen. He does not feel very threatening. And his army of orcs has been dull since the first film. They're just not very interesting creatures. Fortunately, The Return of the King really makes up for these monsters with a gallery of better ones. Some of them have been present in the other two films, trolls and those flying dragons that the ring wraiths ride on. They're more present here, however. Even better, though, those gigantic elephants, ten times the size of a normal one. Oh, man, those are cool. Star Wars fans might grumble that they were too much like the AT-AT walkers from Empire, and they are. One scene where Legolas, the elf, triumphs over one of them feels like a sped up version of Luke Skywalker's attack. But the very best thing is a giant spider. Everyone knows that there was originally a giant spider on skull island in King Kong, cut from the film because it really disturbed a test audience. Seeing the spider in Return of the King is like having that famous piece of lost footage restored. When all three films are finally out on their special edition DVDs, I'm going to spend a month combing through them to see whether or not the entire series of films isn't just as good as this one, or perhaps as good as many of my younger friends have sworn they were.
Quite Simply The Best Film of All Time
Many were aware of the inaccuracies that would be produced and the story that would fade away slightly from the books, even Peter Jackson new this, when bringing to life the complexity, symbolism and brilliance that is Tolkien's world - of Middle-earth, Valinor and the once great realm of Numenor. Tolkien forged histories and wrought countries and continents geographically and to the utmost accuracy, devising languages and alphabets for each of these countries' inhabitants: Elves, Men, Dwarfs, Hobbits... etc. I am a Tolkien Scholar and it is very rare that I ever come across another, of my extent of knowledge and love of his work, that actually do not resent the film adaptions in the slightest! I went to the cinema in 2001 expecting an action-packed misuse of CGI but... You know the rest: the movies (Fellowship and Two Towers) remained as loyal to the novels as any Director/Screenwriter would be willing to be, without trying to open the immense story - of friendship, love, sacrifice and darkness - to a wider audience - which I took into account as I sat on the front row, about to witness a masterwork in movie history.

2003 came and the final installment was about to open. Again I say on the front row and awaited The Return of the King - they DID save best for last!!! WHAT A MOVIE!!!!! And, if I may say so, Peter Jackson's additions - including Pippin's Song and the Eye of Sauron - are improvements to the film. It expresses the deep emotion that lies beneath all the torment of the War of the Ring so well that it is undoubtedly one of the greatest war movies ever (even though it is a fantasy) standing, side by side, with Saving Private Ryan and Paths of Glory.

The Return of the King is the best LOTR movie (no matter what any critic will say about its extreme run time - I only watch the 4 hour extended edition, when I watch it at home) and The Lord of the Rings, as a whole, is - for me - quite simply the best movie of all time, based on the best book of all time.
The perfect ending for a great trilogy!
Wow, what a movie! It's not only the best of "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, it also is one of the best movies of the past couple of years.

"The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" is a totally spectacular movie. It has some of the most amazing battle scene's in movie history. The word spectacular isn't good enough to describe it, it's breathtaking, epic and emotional involving. Who didn't wanted to pick up a sword and shield and charge with Aragorn towards a large number of Orcs for honor and glory?

Even though the special effects are far from the best ever, Peter Jackson is a master in mixing the special effect with real life action. The use of it never feels overdone and the result is spectacular as well as believable.

I think lot's of people were worried after "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" after seeing the battle of Helm's Deep. How was Peter Jackson ever going to top that great battle? Well, with "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" he topped it alright! The battle for Middle Earth is something you've never seen before. Greatest moment was when the riders of Rohan charged, it was really a moment in which you felt the true meaning of fighting and dying with honor. Also great moment during the immensely large battle were the fights against the oliphaunts, just when you thought the battle was over, those large creatures appeared! Really great moment.

The characters are possibly at their best in this movie. No characters need introductions anymore and we get to see the deepest of their emotions in this movie, even Gollum's!

Still the movie is not really deserving to be third in the top 250 here on It's also not really deserving all those Oscar's it won. Like all The Lord of the Rings movies, it's great, spectacular and absolutely breathtaking at times but not classic masterpieces in my book.

Also the movie is far from flawless. Once again the editing is just poor at times and what was with the ending? Couldn't they just think of one ending? I expected the end credits to start rolling multiple times during the ending but it just went on and on.

Despite some of those flaws it still is an excellent movie with some unforgettable battle's sequence's. Truly a wonderful ending for one of the greatest movie trilogies in history.

More than ready
Usually I don't want to see a movie more than once in a theater let alone a movie this long. But I just want to see it again, as well I can't wait for the extended version to come out on DVD. However i know that it will be a while with how good and popular it is.
Beautifully realized, but it has eight separate endings
***Spoilers herein***

That's right, this film could have ended eight separate times, but it chose to keep going. It's one of those movies where you think it's going to end, but then suddenly there's another scene. I would rather have had fewer and shorter Hobbit close-ups and Family Ties-style hugging, and more Saruman and Treebeard. The film skips Saruman's downfall, and he's relegated to a single sentence by Gandalf. After all the crap that Saruman pulled, I really wanted to see how broken he was after Isengard's destruction by the Ents. Speaking of Ents, Treebeard is in the film for about a minute. It would have been nice to see he and Gandalf gloating over Saruman's downfall. I guess there was only so much they could fit into three hours.

The three films are a tremendous effort. There are breathtaking vistas, panoramas, and sweeping pans whisking you up and down Minas Tirith and Mordor, and the battle scenes are nothing short of remarkable. In one scene, Legolas swings up the side of an oliphant and quickly kills everyone riding it, then fells the huge beast with a single arrow, all while the view is rapidly rotating around and around the maddened oliphant. It is a stunning special effect.

One problem I had with these films is the realism. In both Minas Tirith and Rohan, there are absolutely no farms, livestock, fields, wagons, crops, markets, trees, or any of the other things that a city requires in order to provide for its people. Watch the movie carefully. See a crop of corn anywhere, or even one single sheep? Where did they get the material for those clothes?

There are two scenes with Shelob that are breathtaking in their simple horror: there is a full view of Shelob, launching herself onto the little Hobbit with the tenacity of a rabid dog. In the theater, everyone gasped at that scene, because it drove home the size of Shelob against the size of Sam. The second one is where Frodo is by himself, on the path, and Shelob looms soundlessly over him. It is creepy to watch.

I'm disappointed by the truncated friendly rivalry between Legolas and Gimli. In the book there was a rich humor in their odd-couple friendship, but it isn't really explored in the films. Then again, there are so many characters that the film couldn't possibly explore them all. Eowyn's story seems particularly abrupt; the tender moment with her dying father is pretty much the last we see of her. I don't remember seeing her at the wedding. The moment she slays the Nazgul reminded me of St. George and the dragon. Also, Faramir's story ends abruptly too. And what about the white tree and the restorative quality of kingsfoil? It was those missing details that could have added more humanity to the film.

There could not have been a better Gandalf than Ian McKellen. He has just the right kind of wise, sprightly, smart-ass attitude that the character has in the book. He's fantastic during battle scenes, whirling around, running back and forth, telling people not to give up, conking mad steward Denethor on the head with his staff. I understand that Peter Jackson wants to make the Hobbit as well, and if so, it will be nice to see Ian McKellen introducing the dwarves one-by-one to Bilbo Baggins at Bag End.

Frodo and Sam's trek through Mordor moves too quickly. One moment they are in the orc's tower, and the next they are at Mount Doom. How did they get there so fast? Gollum's descent into the volcano was perfect. In a final demonstration of just how precious the ring really was to him, he keeps it out of the flame until the last possible moment as he slowly sinks into the lava, deliriously happy at having the ring again as he ignores the lava that eats him alive.

This film isn't perfect, but it's so faithful to the book and so carefully crafted that it's easy to overlook the faults and enjoy the breathtaking scenery.
Honestly if you haven't seen this movie yet why are you wasting your time reading reviews go watch it immediately. Granted it's been at least a year since I last watched the LOTR trilogy but I can still say without a doubt this is the best one of the three. In my opinion is was much more satisfying than the hobbit trilogy as well. Also you don't have to be a fan of fantasy or anything (which is unlikely in the age of GoT) to enjoy this movie, I guarantee anyone would enjoy this movie as long as they pay attention.
