Pros: Captures The Imagination, Emotionally Engaging, Engaging Characters, Excellent Acting, Great Cinematography
Excerpt: At last the full arc is visible, and the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy comes into final focus. "The Return of the King" dispatches its characters to their destinies with a grand and eloquent confidence. This is the best of the three, and certifies the "Ring" trilogy as a work of bold ambition at a time of cinematic timidity. The final battle is kind of magnificent.
Excerpt: Spoilers The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King is considered the best of the trilogy, and for good reason. It has all the good stuff of the last two movies blended together in this conclusion. It has the great characters again, the better developed journey, a better filled runtime and was one of the greatest endings to a trilogy ever. Plus, this time bigger is better. But with a lot of greats also come some problems.
Excerpt: I have to say. I was kinda worried about this film. The first film was a 90% for me and I expected the second to be at least a 95-98%.

Summary: As a concluding chapter, Return of the King is as epic and awesome as it should be. The climactic trek to Mordor is the film's heart and the movie succeeds most when it stays small - focusing on the battle of wits between Gollum and Sam and Frodo. Some of the action sequences are a little over the top and special effects heavy and the film suffers from multiple false endings, but, all in all, it's a satisfying and soaring conclusion to a very faithful trilogy.
