Review One could be forgiven for initially approaching The Return of the King with a little trepidation. As good as the first two films, The Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers, are...movie history is littered with occasions when trilogy conclusions have crashed and burned. Return of the Jedi. Godfather III. The Matrix Revolutions. And so on... Yet, with The Return of the King, Jackson has done more than just bucked the trend. Not only is this motion picture an entirely worthy conclusion to the landmark trilogy, but it's better than its predecessors. Somehow, Jackson has managed to synthesize what worked in The Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers, while siphoning off the less successful elements. The result is amazing. Taken as a whole, there is nothing out there today that can come close to comparing to The Lord of the Rings...The Lord of the Rings will go down in cinematic lore as a milestone. It has legitimatized fantasy like no other production and has shown that it is possible for studio executives to realize huge gains when taking huge risks...History will show the importance of The Lord of the Rings. The present illustrates its broad appeal and undeniable critical and commercial success.

Review It's official: director Peter Jackson has pulled off the cinematic equivalent of a miracle with The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, the last and indisputably best film in his epic adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic fantasy trilogy. This sweeping and marvelously entertaining adventure is the work of a prodigiously gifted filmmaker operating at the very top of his creative powers. There are moments of truly jaw-dropping spectacle in LOTR: The Return of the King, but the film's astonishing visuals never overwhelm the characters or the densely plotted narrative. A beautifully sustained model of escapist filmmaking with nary a dull patch in sight, LOTR: The Return of the King towers over the other Yuletide releases vying for Oscar consideration...Although LOTR: The Return of the King is a technical marvel, it is the film's literate screenplay and finely developed characters that elevate LOTR: The Return of the King above other fantasy films...As the voice of the tortured Gollum, Andy Serkis (24 Hour Party People) nearly steals the movie. Astin (Rudy) makes for a brave and steadfast sidekick to Wood, and Mortensen cuts a properly heroic figure as the man who would be king.

Michael Sragow, Baltimore Sun It rises, all on its own, to the realm of masterwork.
