THE BEST OF ALL THE LOTR MOVIES... sets new standards for cinematic excellence. The cast is good and Peter Jackson has his audience completely captivated.
Quite a lot of battles but you feel that this one was quite grim as it's to be expected. The final of the trilogy and you walk away quite satisfied.
This one would get the silver out of the three. A lot of battles in this one, and all the different groups trying to save middle earth finally meet again to bear arms and defend their right to live!... Read more Peter Jackson really made another world within these movies! A must see!
It was great!! loved it i would rate it 10 out of 10!!!!! and if you havent seen it i would tell you, you got to see this its the best 1 of them all!!
Great Scenery and Awesome effects make me proud to be a New Zealander. This movie has the best of both worlds - Love/Romance, Action/Adventure and an all round great story. May be slightly long for... Read more those that can't sit still and slow in places but over all this movie is fantastic. The third in a truly epic trilogy it is unparralled and ties the story up nicely.
The movie is about man's will to defeat his oppressors and fulfil his destiny as the rulers of middle earth.
I liked the movie because of it's strong message of good triumphing over evil. I also... Read more found the cinematography to be precedent setting in the approach. Peter Jackson kept extremely true to the original story, and, once again, excelled in his editing. For lovers of the written word, keep an eye out for the extended version. PJ fluidly added all the bits you would have been disappointed to miss in this theatrical release.
Noisy and it drags on forever - the special effects and the make up are fine but you need a bit more to keep your attention.
Too long. Too many endings. Too much hype. Too much going on at once.
I almost don't believe that the last film in the trilogy was filmed simultaneously with the first two. It feels as if Peter Jackson simply got bored after two movies and decided to pack the last three... Read more hour instalment with every Hollywood cliche he could think of to liven it up. There are still moments of storytelling genius, but they feel few and far between, taking a back seat to CGI battles, giant spiders, and Arwen and Aragorn's overly extended love story. Now, having also seen King Kong and The Lovely Bones, it appears Jackson's directing style has changed to simply throwing money at a film and waiting for the Academy Awards.
The best of the three movies. All out action and some great quality acting, Peter Jackson is a brilliant director
