"Spectacular end to a spectacular trilogy."
5 stars"

It may be long, but it is well worth it. The special effects are incredible with tonnes of action but the story has not been sacrificed. I was in tears towards the end, and in tears again during the final credits. It has everything the previous two movies had plus more.

You could watch Return of the King, without seeing the first two movies and still enjoy it. This is truly Peter Jackson's finest piece of work.

"The last chapter"
5 stars"

The final part in this epic trilogy is the most emotionally impacting of them all. It is the very final struggle to the end of all things and all that leads up to the end is amazing. From the stunning set pieces to the amazingly huge battles, The Return of the King is the most action packed of them all.

The home video debut of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King will follow the groundbreaking success of the multi-tiered platform releases of both The Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers. A special extended edition of The Return of the King will be released at a later date.

"The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King is the crowning glory of a truly unparalleled filmmaking achievement," said Stephen Einhorn, president and chief operating officer of New Line Home Entertainment. "The two-DVD edition includes the award-winning theatrical epic as well as hours of behind-the- scenes bonus materials."

Based on J.R.R. Tolkien's epic adventure of good versus evil, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King will be released separately in both widescreen and fullscreen versions, each including a second disc offering hours of additional content. Disc Two will feature behind-the-scenes specials, featurettes, theatrical trailers, TV spots, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy supertrailer, a preview of the upcoming The Lord of the Rings- based video game from Electronic Arts and a link to exclusive online content about the motion picture trilogy.
