"One ring to rule them all. One ring to find them. One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them." -- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings -- In the conclusion of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, as armies mass for a final battle that will decide the fate of the world -- and powerful, ancient forces of Light and Dark compete to determine the outcome -- one member of the Fellowship of the Ring is revealed as the noble heir to the throne of the Kings of Men. Yet, the sole hope for triumph over evil lies with a brave hobbit, Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood - "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," "Everything is Illuminated"), who, accompanied only by his loyal friend Sam and the hiddeous, wretched Gollum, ventures deep into the very dark heart of Mordor on his seemingly impossible quest to destroy the Ring of Power. Also starring Academy Award-nominee Viggo Mortensen ("A History of Violence," "Eastern Promises"), Academy Award-nominee and Golden Globe-winner Ian McKellan ("X-Men," TV's "Rasputin"), Orlando Bloom ("Troy," "The Pirates of the Caribbean” trilogy), Liv Tyler ("The Strangers" "The Incredible Hulk") and Academy Award and Golden Globe-winner Cate Blanchett ("Elizabeth," "The Aviator"). Winner of 11 Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director!




  • Almost as good as the book

    By Rakfamily
    I say almost coz the book provides a few chapters in the end not seen in the movie. Yet with the nature and special effects and imagination present, the story is very much alive. Good job all.
  • Amazing!

    By I like Dino's
    The best of the three films. The story was written very well, the screenwriter did an amazing job. Weta Workshops Outstanding CGI was the best I've seen when I first saw it around 2009. And of course, the performance's of Sean Austin, Elijah Wood, Andy Serkis, and the rest of the cast was off the charts incredible. Howard Shore's Score tied the whole movie together, and can I say that Sam is just the best character ever? Everything about this movie is great. For those of you who want good acting, amazing CGI, a good story, sad parts, sweet parts, romantic parts, action, violence, suspense, terror, horror, and a great soundtrack. Buy this movie don't rent. You'll find everything you want in a movie right here.

  • Please keep this Icon Imagery; or, if not, let US opt to keep it!

    It matches my hardcopy disc items; this is more convenient for cross-reference within some multi-media collections; and some of us would indeed prefer such cover art as did represent, during purchase, what we were purchasing; does this not make sense? That said, I was and am astounded at the spectacular, glorious achievement of all three Lord of the Rings films in either Edition! The cast and acting for Gandalf and his Posse are beyond belief. Scenery; costume; music; respect for the story? All Is Radiance. The reverence for love, friendship, and all that is right . . . this, all the while, is what ultimately sails these films “westward”. Five stars, despite such issues as I mention primarily elsewhere; if anyone would so prefer, please see my further comments as via the Reviews for “Fellowship” in that film’s Theatrical Edition. Thank you!
  • Read This!!!!

    By GandolfTheOld
    Return of the king isn’t my favorite TLOTR movie, but it deserves five starts. It’s such a good movie. And the satisfaction of the ending to the series is more than we deserved. It worked out perfectly for another movie to happen. Like the sillmarillian. But it’s just one of the best movies of all time!
  • Rent ?

    By Combatfisher
    This is still not rent-able ? I don't think I want to buy it...I just wanted to watch it
  • Way to long!!!

    By refael2004
    I didn’t like this for two reasons; 1; 3 hours and 21 minutes! How can they expect anyone to sit through that whole thing!? It took my three days to finish the whole thing. I feel bad for the people watching it in the theater. 2; not a lot happens. I’m disappointed with this. Worst middle-earth movie.
  • What
