    I would have to say that the theatrical edit of "The Return of the King" would recieve either a 7.5 or an 8, depending on my mood. This is the best of the three "Lord of the Rings" pictures, though, and to some degree it redeems the endless meandering of the first two films. A very poor, miscalculated denouement which undermines the dramatic and emotional impact of the film prevents me from awarding this a higher score. Very good, but not great, and certainly does not hold a place on the list of the greatest films ever made, as many others would argue.

    As a fan of both the books and the movies - 10 all the way!!!

    I give it a 1 since zero wasn't an option...

    I'm really sorry to make anyone mad, but I personally thought it was horrible.

    10!

    However, paradoxically, with hindsight, I believe that The Two Towers is a greater 10! :)

    While I loved most of it, I thought there were parts where it just dragged on. I realize that the ending, for instance, did need to shown. But seeing it in theaters, I was sitting there and wondering just when would it end. Then again, I had the same problem with the books as well...

    LotR: The Return of the King is a fantastic movie that I enjoyed watching. I gave it a 10, even though it isn't the greatest movie and has some flaws.

    I?d give it 10 if it wasn?t for the fact that I slightly prefer The Two Towers. Nevertheless, RoTK is an outstanding example of passionate filmmaking, and in my view exists as the finest example of a trilogy?s third installment living up to the quality of its predecessors.

    edit: I suppose I should say I rated it a 9.

    Can surely NEVER forgive them Sam *SHAMEONYOU!!!!*[face_talk_hand]
    Why did he listen to the place where Tolkien said Eowyn was blonde? (Well he left out the hair-mingling-scene anyway)
    Where has the book gone? :_|
    I know I'm a critic. (But I loved part 1....)
