not as good as all the hype
When a movie has you begging for it to end not even half way through it's pure crap. We've all seen this movie and this characters millions of times, nothing new in it. Don't waste your time.
The movie turns out to be a little better than the average. Starting from a romantic formula often seen in the cinema, it ends in the most predictable (and somewhat bland) way.
By the time the dramatic fireworks start popping off, each one feels earned.
Loved the trilogy. Only reasons I didn't give it a 10 was that 1. there were too many "he's dead" but NOT dead episodes in the trilogy and 2. They should have cast somebody other than Viggo for Aragorn and Hugo for Elrond. Viggo too new agish for Aragorn. Elrond much stronger and noble.
Best casting for make this movie best directing in 12 hour movie best editing of all time best soundtrack of movies i think it deserve oscar awards best scenes and sets of all time
'The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King (2003)' is the best of the three mainly because it is, for the most part, so pacy and persistently forward-moving. It's constantly engaging and does a good job of wrapping up its story in a suitably epic and entertaining way. It does suffer from multiple endings, though. These could each have done the job (except for the one that's particularly silly) but none of them wrap up the picture especially well in conjunction with one another. There's also an occasional feeling that there's less plot this time around, with more emphasis placed upon phenomenally epic battles - some of the largest in scale I've ever seen. However, this one is more of an ensemble piece than the others and it intercuts between its main stories just often enough that you always care about each of its never-more-interesting dangling threads. Although the emphasis of this picture does seem slightly less on our protagonist's journey to rid Middle Earth of the one ring than you'd perhaps expect, it strikes a balance between all of its characters - especially those who were sidelined before - and makes sure that they all have something important to do and that you care about them while they are doing it. Because of this, it's the most character-focused in the trilogy, even if some of the 'main' players are given slightly less to do. Thankfully, it also means that Sam, who is clearly the most heroic of the hobbits, finally has his day as a hero (even if most other characters don't acknowledge it) and it is incredibly satisfying. 8/10
Take your time to read this; I think you will find it useful.I watched ROTK while on a day-per-movie marathon of the LOTR trilogy. The only time I had come upon it before was having watched the fellowship at the age of 9; but MY GOD, was it worth going through.My favourite film before seeing this was The Shawshank Redemption. While I'm not a very critical person, Shawshank was a film in which I could see where it's cinematic excellence comes from. On the other hand, The Godfather was the film I most couldn't understand the love for; it seriously has not aged well, and I think my stance on it is the same as those of the critics who say this film has some serious critical issues. However, I still don't understand those people who like the first two but dislike this one; there is no doubt that it is the strongest one, even from a critical viewpoint; not a lot really happens in the first one; it follows linearly danger after danger, Balrog after the weird creature in the lake, and yet some people are saying that is the best. ROTK, however, has some epic fight sequences, amazing character development, and the most incredible climax scene I have ever watched. Those who are wondering about the title of this review: I noticed that most of the negative reviews were about the film being disloyal to the source material. Yes, I understand those peoples' motives and ideas, but I feel it is better to focus on what it is than what you believe it is meant to be. In my opinion the loyalty to the books doesn't affect the quality greatly if at all, and sometimes the changes are for the better, something I can apply to How to Train Your Dragon. However, a few book-to-film changes DOES NOT MEAN YOU SHOULD DEMAIN YOUR RATING DOWN TO A ONE. This is what I have seen many reviews doing, and I just don't see the rationale behind it.All I can say to to summarise the likability is that it seems split from a critical viewpoint, sometimes good, sometimes bad; but for a simple moviegoer who is not too bothered about book-to-film changes, this is the cinematic masterpiece it deserves to be called.
