5 Stars

Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King is by far the most awe-inspiring of the three films in the trilogy. Peter Jackson did an amazing job of blending the epic battle scenes with Frodo’s quest to destroy the ring masterfully. And although this is the longest running of the three films, at 3 hours and 20 minutes, the film does not lose the audience’s grasp–it grabs on to you and doesn’t let go.

Minas Tirith, and the battle there, is visually stunning. It has to be seen to be believed. Alas, I don’t know what I can say about this film that hasn’t already been said before, or that I didn’t already say in my review of The Two Towers. All I can say is run, don’t walk, to go see this film. Just be sure to empty your bladder and not get a drink unless you want to suffer during the last hour of the film. It’s very long, but worth every minute. A masterpiece from beginning to end.

Here is another great review of the film by fellow Blogcritic, Kevin Holtsberry.
