  • This is a film in which ideas resonate as well as action. Gandalf’s words to Pippin about death have a muscular poetry. show more

  • Though an estimable success overall, The Return of the King has several scenes too many and too great a concentration on battles. show more

  • As good as each individual movie is, the third film vaults the work into the stratosphere of classic movies. Key characters are enhanced, new civilizations visited and battles fought more intensely, while feelings and motivations are plumbed more deeply and movingly. show more
