The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
has it all—spectacular visuals, beyond imagination storyline, ‘blow it over the top’ special effects, extreme scene creativity, non-stop action—and it requires constant mental involvement to follow. It’s the film of the century, a classic work from its beginning to its end, and earns an investment of dollars and time as well as a place in the home entertainment library. Great work for Director Peter Jackson.
