The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King Review

Synopsis:

Gandalf and Aragorn lead the World of Men against Sauron's army to draw his gaze from Frodo and Sam as they approach Mount Doom with the One Ring.

After two great films in a row, I knew this one had to be good. I had the highest expectations for this movie once again. The white wizard Saruman has been stripped of his power by Tree Beard and his Fellow Ents and Rohan has been saved by the return of Gandalf. Frodo and Sam are being led by Smeagol into Mordor so that they may destroy the ring. Everything seems like its going according to plan, but the worst is yet to come. Gondor has been without its king for years, and Suaron has sent all of his minions to destroy them. This ensues the battle of Minis Tirith which was very long, but I enjoyed every minute of it. Everything that was in Two Towers was there, but now they all got into the action. Within all the craziness the ring bearer falls into the ring’s temptation and is led to a trap by Smeagol.

This movie was without words everything was once again surpassed from my expectation. There will never be a movie of its kind ever again. Every emotion, every pulse pounding moment had me at the edge of my seat. I never even realized that this move was over three hours long because I was so excited. This was an extreme privilege to see. If you are reading this to know if it’s a good movie then stop now and go buy the DVD, you don’t know what you’re missing. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I loved it.
