THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING (2003) *** ½

Director Peter (Dead-Alive) Jackson’s epic trilogy (based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s novels) comes full circle is whiz bang fashion. The effects and non-stop action scenes are visually impressive and the acting ranges from good (Viggo Mortensen) to bland (Liv Tyler). The only (major) caveat is the drawn out ending(s) that will have you lunging for the fast forward button. The “Extended Edition” DVD Director’s Cut runs 50 minutes longer (over four hours!) and reinstates the sorely missed Christopher Lee, who was absent in the theatrical version. As if you didn’t already know, Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Sean Astin, Cate Blanchett, John Rhys-Davies, Orlando Bloom, Hugo Weaving and Karl (The Irrefutable Truth About Demons) Urban co-star
