Return of the King

“Absolutely brilliant”

“It was much better than the other two”

“It lived up to all the hype”

“The truth of the matter is, it’s a terrific film”

“[one of] The American Film’s Institute’s (AFI) top 10 films of the year”

“It was fantastic,”

“It was definitely the best of the three”

“It’s the best film of the year.”

“And so it ends, the greatest film trilogy ever mounted, with some of the most amazing action sequences committed to celluloid. The Return of the King is everything a Ring fan could possibly wish for, and much more.”

“The Lord of the Rings is undeniably a landmark in cinema history, a creation of demented, kamikaze passion that all logic suggested should never work and yet somehow did.”

“I left exhilarated and saddened. What will Christmas next year be like without a fresh instalment of the Ring to look forward to?”

“The Return of the King is the great coming together of Tolkien’s myth, where journeys end in vast battles, and where incident is piled upon incident, climax upon climax. And director Peter Jackson has more than done justice to his material.”

“Will Jackson at last win an Oscar for this towering achievement? No ifs. No buts. The answer is unequivocally yes. And about time too.”
