The Lord Of The Rings: (The Return Of The King) User Review
Story: 4/5. What a conclusion. I’m so used to the third film in a trilogy fumbling that I was unprepared for how good this would be. Following on the incredible setups from the Two Towers, there was so much story that needed settling and being done meaningfully.
The fact that all of the major plot points could be so equally compelling while taking up such huge chunks of screen time is commendable.
The main battle sequence managed to be even bigger and graver than the last, while giving fruitful development to many of the characters established in the Two Towers. The tension with Gollum was rife and pivotal to the deep companionship between Sam and Frodo.
The moments of being saved right before tragedy were mostly plausible and setup well, with just the eagles being a minor thing. Very minor, though. All that runtime and none of it ultimately feels wasted because every action is given purpose.
Visuals: 5/5. The CGI problems I had with the Two Towers are pretty much mostly fixed and gone by this point. Despite more creatures and a bigger battle to deal with, it never felt too big for the production team.
The worlds are vast and the sets massive, and it all feels real and within reasonable scope. The battles were communicated well and shot in a way which never made them jarring or difficult to follow. The makeup and costumes were great, as always.
Sound: 4/5. Once again, a great score, hitting all of the right beats as and when it needed to. Down to the closing piece, again. The music felt more thematic this time around, returning as needed with particular motifs. The sound design was a major part of the battles having the impact they needed to, along with the eventual climb and sequences at Mordor.
13/15: An impeccable conclusion to this massive trilogy. Well-written characters and masterful set-pieces make this a memorable experience.
