After going on opening day to see ROTK, it didn't take long for me to form an opinion about the film. 30 seconds into it to be exact.
New Line Pictures and Peter Jackson took a gamble that fans would come to their peculiar and strange phenomenon of viewing all three Lord of the Rings movies made to date, all in a single day, with only about an hour in between the three movies, and live to talk about it.
"Well, I'm back."
Most of the drama and emotion in the crucial scenes was left out in the film.
What a way to end the series. Saying that Return of the King is a masterpiece of film-making is a simple truism. At the same time, however, let me make something very clear. It isn't perfect. But it's *** close. What an experience.
It has got to be the best movie of the century.
The Return of The King Rocked!
The best of the three, raked in $8 million by midnight on first day.
"So when I walked into the theater Tuesday night I knew that I was in for a moving experience. I grew to love the first film of the series, but never quite felt as good about the second. I could tell that the departures from the story were growing and I could tell that a greater emphasis was being placed on special effects and action sequences. Still, I wanted Peter Jackson to end it well and to leave me satisfied..."
Its a review. With spoilers.
Well ladies and gents, the final install of Peter Jackson's vision of LOTR was fantastic!
