The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King Reviews
This trilogy is just too good for me to review. It transcends my ranking. There are no words for me to describe how much I love these films.
Once a year at Christmas time, my family and I anxiously dedicate twelve full hours of our lives to watch all three of the action packed Blu ray extended edition films of Peter Jacksons, The Lord of the Rings. We watch the first two films of the series, which tells the story of a band of heroes, who set off to destroy the ultimate evil threatening there very lives. Through a series of unfortunate events, they become separated and pulled into their own destinies. Building up to the third and final installment, The Return of the King, which comes forward with the most emotion, heroism and special effects in the trilogy. This final finale, bringing the first two films together, comes forth ultimately finishing the mission from the very beginning of destroying the unspeakable evil engulfing their world.
The heir, to the throne of the kingdom of men, standing at the head an army of ghost mercenaries, who go on to destroy an entire army and save countless lives. An elf prince is seen with amazing skill, taking down a creature the size of a ten story building single handedly. A terrifying eight-legged nightmare, nearly killing the one who in the end ultimately saves the entire world. And finally that same hero, after all that he has been through is seen dangling above a chasm of fire, ready to give up all hope. But is saved by the love of his best friend. These are only a few of the breathtaking scenes viewed in this epic finale. From the battle of multiple armies to the final destruction of the ultimate evil forever, this film is a must see and brings an emotional but satisfying end to this unexpected journey.
Ultimately, Peter Jackson does what he had aimed to do, that is to bring the trilogy of The Lord of the Rings to life in a beautiful way, taking the bestselling series into one of highest box office series of all time. The final movie of these classic legends comes to an awesome visual end, making audiences of all ages sit back in their seats and say, "Job well done".
