Peter Jackson proves here that he is the ultimate director/writer/producer of fantasy epics, this is his masterpiece, the three films equal in superiority and brilliance.
The first, the fellowhip of the ring, sees the forming of the fellowship and the very first stages in taking the one ring back to the fiery depths of mordor to be destroyed. The acting is top notch and the cast speaks for itself, Ian mckellen, Elijah wood, viggo mortensen, liv tyler, john ryhs davies and orlando bloom are among the most famous, all however give towering performances. The renwoned special effects and scenery and utterly absorbing and the best i have ever seen in a movie. The script and storyline has been datracted well from the book, keeping much of the scenes and character develpoment, which is rare in a movie. A brilliant start to the trilogy.
The second, the two towers is again superior in all aspects, now seeing the continuing journey but a smaller fellowship who accompany the ring to its destruction. This movie seems much more action packed than the first, boasting amazing battle sequences and more stunningly imaginative creatures this only betters the first and continues the amazing trilogy. As in the first the acting, cast, script and scenery are all utterly mind blowing, i will say no more but this is a thoroughly engaging depiction of the second book.
The third, return of the king, is perhaps the best of them all, again boasting more amazing battle sequences and stunning scenery and sets. As in the first two the story follows frodo, sam and now gollum as they still cotinue on their quest to mordor, with more hardhips the face, more creatures to battle and more obstacles to conquer it seems peter jackson was going for gold when he made this final instalment. As before the acting and sets and special effects are truly awe inspiring, a brilliant finale to the best series of movies ever made.
Now a quick word on this boxset, i was truly excited when i recieved this, brilliant extended and brand new footage, unmissable special features and brilliant boxset, make this the ultimate addition to any Lord Of The Rings fan, or if you've never seen it before this is perfect, as a recent fan myself i can assure you, these are the best movies that have ever been made and perhaps will ever be made. Each movie is utterly flawless i dont think anybody, not even Peter Jackson could have made them any better. Brilliant!
