The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

In this final chapter, Aragorn is revealed as the heir to the ancient kings as he, Gandalf and the other members of the broken fellowship struggle to save Gondor from Sauron's forces. Meanwhile, Frodo and Sam bring the ring to the heart of Mordor.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

This film (this trilogy really) may be the best cinematic definition of “too much of a good thing” there ever was. Our eyes are too exhausted by the end to appreciate fully the majesty of these hundreds of breathtaking visions, and our hearts too wrenched to be truly moved any further. Besides, the abundance of epilogues doesn’t help. But it’s easy to acknowledge the artistry of the craft here, and even easier to recognize the colossal scale of the accomplishment: This is, simply put, one of the biggest movies of all time, a stupendous achievement in filmmaking, and terrific entertainment.
