The third and final movie sees the ultimate journey of Frodo Baggins (Wood) and Sam Gamjee (Astin) to the depths of Mordor to the destroy the One Ring. With King Theoden (Hill) finally revived and once again the King of Rohan, the fellowship turn their attention to Gondor at whose throne Aragon (Mortensen) must ascend and command the army of men to the black gates of Mordor. It is the final battle for Men and humanity to save the world from the black evil of Sauron. As with the previous movie, this too focuses on the battle against evil and culmination of all races to fight for a common purpose. The movie leaves you with an uplifted and inspired feeling and is an improvement over the previous movies. This would be the best of three movies and has done good justice to the book. All the movies have been a fabulous attempt at recreating the book to the finest detail but the third movie has truly lived to the splendour of The Lord of the Rings. J.R.R. Tolkien would be proud if he were to watch these movies today. A movie that demands your time and patience but will reward you with pure entertainment.
