Includes Special Features
With The Return of the King, the greatest fantasy epic in film
history draws to a grand and glorious conclusion. Director Peter Jackson's
awe-inspiring adaptation of the Tolkien classic The Lord of the Rings could never
fully satisfy those who remain exclusively loyal to Tolkien's expansive
literature, but as a showcase for physical and technical craftsmanship it is
unsurpassed in pure scale and ambition, setting milestone after cinematic
milestone as the brave yet charmingly innocent Hobbit Frodo (Elijah Wood)
continues his mission to Mordor, where he is destined to destroy the
soul-corrupting One Ring of Power in the molten lava of Mount Doom. While the
heir to the kingdom of Men, Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen), endures the massive
battle at Minas Tirith with the allegiance of the elf Legolas (Orlando Bloom),
dwarf Gimli (John Rhys-Davies) and the great wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen),
Frodo and stalwart companion Samwise Gamgee (Sean Astin) must survive the
schizoid deceptions of Gollum, who remains utterly convincing as a hybrid of
performance (by Andy Serkis) and subtly nuanced computer animation.
Jackson and cowriters Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens have much
ground to cover; that they do so with intense pacing and epic sweep is
impressive enough, but by investing greater depth and consequence in the
actions of fellow Hobbits Merry (Dominic Monaghan) and Pippin (Billy Boyd),
they ensure that Return of the King maintains the trilogy's emphasis on
intimate fellowship. While several major characters appear only briefly, and
one (Christopher Lee's evil wizard, Saruman) relegated entirely to the extended
version on DVD, Jackson is to be commended for his editorial acumen; like
Legolas the archer, his aim as a filmmaker is consistently true, and he remains
faithful to Tolkien's overall vision. If Return suffers from too many endings,
as some critic suggested, it's only because the epic's conclusion is so loyally
inclusive of the actors--most notably Astin--who gave it such strength to begin
with. By ending the LOTR trilogy with noble integrity and faith in the power of
imaginative storytelling, The Return of the King, like its predecessors, will
stand as an adventure for the ages.
