If you have not seen any of these films, then there really has to be something wrong with you. The set location and soundtrack are enough to make it a 5* film, not to mention the A-list actors and actresses starring, and the unbelieveable story it tells.

The action scenes are monumental, and you really do notice how many of the newer films out now are copying the scale at which this film is groundbreaking.

If you are a true lover of the books, this film is not to be missed. Although many parts of the story that are vital for the books are left out, the director's choice really cannot be argued with! (Watching all three films simultaneously really does take the wind out of you!)

It should be obvious from common sense that if you want to watch any one of these films you should really get all three at once (saves a lot of time and money)

Worth every penny!

For someone who has never really read the books before, These films are just brilliant, They are absolutely stunning. I have watched these films all in one go once & I have to say, it is one of the best trilogy's out there to buy. You will not be disappointed.

Trilogys can be a pain sometimes but this one has to be the best trilogy i have in my collection . For VFM i'd snap this up sharpish . I'm not a book reader and not really into this type of thing but having sat in front of my TV i was compelled to watch it from start to end ( 9hrs !! ) . It is a long drawn out epic but it was that good i'm going to have to watch it again so i understand the plot totally . 9 more hours weeeeeeee.

  The greatest book to film adaptation ever!!!!!!!!!!

| | See all plumbernator's reviews (66)

The Lord Of The Rings are 3 of the most exciting and magical books to ever be written. Now they are 3 of the most exciting and magical films ever.
With spectacular performances from a steller cast including Ian McKellen, Sean Bean, Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving and Viggo Mortensen. But the real greats that make this film the masterpiece it is are Elijah Wood and Sean Astin. The make a perfect partnership and the disintigration of the firendship throughout the second and third films are truely harrowing.
The special-effects are hands down the best ever. The third film especielly produces some breath-taking momemts.
The films are good for there large and heart-felt adaptation to the original text. Its clear the Jackson cares more about what he thinks than what his audience thinks spending about 5hrs in the 9hr running time createing interesting and progressive character development, great for most, but the small amount that seem to think Popcorn flicks are the way forward may be dissapointed.
But the rest should be up-lifed. Jackson creates and entire new world using top-of-the-range SFX and the great sweeping landscapes of New Zealand. This is a must to your collection as a perfect example of mainstream Hollywood actually for once producing real brilliance!!!!
