Great story, awesome special effects, top of the line acting, excellent musical score, wonderful themes of friendship, honor, courage, and love; how can this not be just about the greatest movie of all time.
This movie ends the trilogy with such a dramatic climax. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. I left the theater speechless. I was in such awe of just how well the movie was made. I cheered, I shouted (inside anyhow since I was in a theater), and I sobbed. The movie makes you feel a sense of connection with the characters, so you end up with a feeling that you know them personally. You morn the death of Theoden, yet you also feel joy in knowing he no longer felt shame. You share Merry's sense of duty and loyalty to your friends as he expresses his need to do something to help those he loves.
If you haven't seen it, watch it.....please. You won't regret it. I recommend the extended version as you get a little more of the story and learn a few things you don't get from the theatrical version.
