3.0 out of 5 stars
Great Movie-Pointless DVD release (for most fans), May 25 2004
The three stars is for the DVD, not the film.
Theres no point in even reviewing this film, its an above average beautifully crafted piece of cinema that concludes one of the greatest stories of all time. But THIS dvd release? The sound and picture quality are about as good as can get, but the extra features are pretty useless. Infact the first two documentaries "The Quest Fulfilled: A Director's Vision" and "A Filmmaker's Journey: Making The Return of The King" use so many of the same images and snipets of interviews that they are almost identicle. They even have the same basic structure.
It all depends on how much your into the trilogy, if you enjoyed the movie and want to own it, theres nothing wrong with this release, if your LOVED the trilogy then rent this one, watch the feature and the extras and wait for the extended edition, that will be the version worth owning.
