  The Lord Of The Rings

| | See all coolstar's reviews (26)

The Lord of the Rings are the best three films ever made. They are a must for fans and for every Dvd collection.

  AMAZING!!!!!!

| | See all jimmywilson's reviews (2)

These films are pure gold to the world of cinema, there is nothing better than sitting down on the sofa and watching all three in a row, it is so easy to do this as well because each one follows on perfectly where the other left off. I have also heard that these smashing films are set to be released in TotalHD which will catapult the special effects out of this world, imagine the battle of Helms Deep in beautiful High Definition. These films seem to have been made purely to enthrall the watcher. After the final one finished, I felt like I wanted it to go on forever, to never stop. The ending is so sad as well. These films are not to be missed, pure gold.

  Unbelieveable value

| | See all ha66ie's reviews (153)

I know many years have passed since these films graced our cinema but £9.99 for all three!!?? What are you waiting for? Order it! The films are so well made, awesome visuals and special effects. The story continues well from dvd to dvd. Each may be over 3 hours long but I didn't notice that. Don't just watch them once, free yourself from distractions and settle down to take in the incredible trilogy. I paid quadruple this price and it was worth it.

whoever hasn't watched peter jackson's trilogy should do so this holiday season. it's a brilliant movie and has much to get you thinking about. i've watched it numerous times and have never grown tired of it, i always find something that i missed earlier on.

  9 Hours of movie excellence

| | See all simjamlmx's reviews (19)

I'm sorry but i'm not having that. 9 hours of walking? I have avoided watching the lord of the rings for many years, the reason being is that i'm not a big fan of wizard type stuff. But a few weekends ago with nothing to watch we bought this boxset. And came away absolutely enthralled to the point that i have watched all three movies again. The movies transcend genres in my view they have everything. the actors all do brilliant jobs. And the effects serve the movie brilliantly. Anyone able to analyse things will be aware that this story is anti- new world order which gives it that extra kick in my view.

  Best old school fantasy films so far!

| | See all dragonlord's reviews (442)

The Lord Of The Rings trilogy is just like one very long wonderful film. As you have to watch all three films as none them can be stand alone films like some trilogy's eg the Indy films. Peter Jackson did an amazing job of bringing the Lord of the Rings books to life and kept fans happy. Hopefully he might do the Hobbit one day aswell. These are must have movies for any movie lover simply awesome.

  MINDBLOWING

| | See all Lepetomane's reviews (116)

I cannot believe the comments of the previous reviewer. Were they seriously watching the same films as the rest of us. These films are in a word phenomenal and Jackson has done the books proud. I couldn't ever grow tired of watching these films,particularly The Fellowship of the Ring. My only gripe is that my t.v. is nowhere big enough to do them justice. Ignore the last reviewer, get some munchies, sit down and let yourself be transported to a fantastic world of hobbits goblins and monsters.

  9 Hours of walking!

| | See all sproaty88's reviews (9)

Pointless three films of walking! Boring and not a real trilogy compared with other great trilogys such as the godfathers, back to the future or the original star wars trilogy!

  Brilliant

| | See all Tedster88's reviews (9)

Truly desrving of it's record breaking oscars, the story is amazing, the characters are amazing and so are the special effects, the battle scences too are explosive. These are my favourites films of all time, i just can't wait for the hobbit film to be made!

  A Must Have Collection

| | See all soconnor's reviews (66)

These are probably my favourite films of all time. No matter what genre of film you like you will like these. The special effects are just amazing and a brilliant storyline. J.R.R. Tolkien had a brilliant mind. I love when I've a day off just to curl up on the couch and watch all three.
