    This is a must see to top off the trilogy and although long, it is engaging and brings great resolve to the trilogy. The end was slow and received criticism by many, but it provided a good stopping point.

    The perfect end to the greatest trilogy. Violence and gore are obvious as the battle for Middle Earth concludes. A plethora of orcs, a giant spider (for those of you with arachnophobia), and Frodo's finger getting bit off, there's plenty of scenes that are not for the timid. I know critics say the end was drawn out and too long, but I thought it was perfect. There were hardly any lose ends to tie up. And I still have a hard time not chanting, "Rudy! Rudy! Rudy!" when Sam carries Frodo at the end.

    An epic end to an epic series. This one is worth the wait. It's a long show (like 3 hours), but I've remained engaged and I would not consider myself to be an obsessed fanatic. I didn't wear a costume and wait in a line until midnight, I promise. I recommend it for anyone who likes good movies, even if you aren't into fantasy movies.
