4 The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the KingThe Lord of the Ring: The Return of the King is truly an EPIC movie. It has all the elements of great storytelling (thanks to the brilliant novel by J.R.R. Tolkien). There is nothing that you cannot find in this movie. There is action, friendship, struggle, love, corruption, power, morality, courage, fear, destruction, environmentalism, tyranny, leadership, and hope. It is hard to believe that all of this is encompassed in one film but it is and this film truly is just that good. The cinematography, music, and costumes transport you to Middle Earth: the amazing world created by Tolkien.
I loved this film so much that I have to confess that I watched it in theaters several times (which I never do). If alive, I hope that Tolkien would find that the films do justice to his vision. I’d like to think they did.
