The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King successfully concludes director Peter Jackson’s seven year quest to complete the J.R.R. Tolkien’s tale. He ties up all the unanswered questions while strengthen the film’s climatic struggle of good versus evil. Frodo and Sam edge closer to Mount Doom while the rest of the company prepares for the final assault from Sauron’s armies. Audiences leave the theater satisfied with the final installment, even though the film is a little too long and its multiple endings become comical by the time Sam returns to the Shire. In the end, Jackson triumphs with dynamic battle sequences, special effects, and good storytelling. His decision to introduce Smeagol before finding the ring helps give Gollum some needed depth, but it also started the whispers of a possible Hobbit film. There is no denying Jackson’s genius and passion, which is rewarded with eleven Academy Awards. The Return of the King rightfully ascends to the throne.
