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

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King Movie Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

Orlando Bloom, Elijah Wood, Viggo Mortensen and more star in The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King movie as Legolas the elf, Aragorn and Frodo the hobbit. Kidzworld reviews the last movie in the Lord of the Rings trilogy - Return of the King.

The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy has been the biggest thing to hit theaters ever. The Fellowship of the Ring introduced Gandalf, Legolas, Aragorn, Gimli, Frodo and the rest of the heroic hobbits as they began their quest to destroy the One Ring. In The Two Towers it was time for a royal rumble as Saruman and a billion orcs tried to wipe out the heroes. The Return of the King wraps up the epic story with a final three and a half hours of bladder-bursting goodness.

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

The Return of the King is all about the final battle between good and evil and it delivers the eye candy. There are more orcs than you've ever seen, a horde of warriors, huge elephant beasts, trolls, knights in shining armor and more giant monsters than a Godzilla movie. It mixes them all into an epic movie that rocks from the start and doesn't quit until the last orc falls.

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

Get this - The Return of the King has more than just tons of action. It's a well-acted tearjerker as well. The story of Sam, Frodo and Gollum struggling to get to Mount Doom is awesome. Also, Pippin has one of the coolest moments in the movie when he's in Gondor and sings a song for Faramir. The Return of the King hits all the right notes and never comes across as cheesy.

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

There are a few weaknesses with The Return of the King but not many. The biggest is that, unless you're a Lord of the Rings fan, the slow beginning may bore you. There are also some weird moments in Mordor - it takes the heroes forever to get there, but once they're inside it's about a five-minute walk from one end to the other.

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King Final Word

Huge action, Legolas kicking butt, an awesome story full of cool acting and detail so amazing it'll knock your socks off. The only thing this movie needs is a jumbo sized snack-pack, or some elven lembas bread.

Rating: 5

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

"It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

“Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.' But I like the inconveniences.' We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.' But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.' In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence. I claim them all,' said the Savage at last. Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”
