The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

Film (Trailer) – 2003

We come to it, at last. The great battle of our time.
– Gandalf (Ian McKellen)
Every hour lost hastens Gondor's defeat. We have til dawn, then we must ride.
– Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen)
New Zealand director, producer and co-writer Peter Jackson does author J.R.R. Tolkien proud by turning his tome into a film epic by which all future film epics will be judged. King pops your eyes, excites your senses and brings you in as close as a whisper for scenes of startling emotion.
– Rolling Stone reviewer Peter Travers, 17 December 2003
It's been a long time since a commercially oriented film with the scale of King ended with such an enduring and heartbreaking coda ... It's an epic about the price of triumph, a subversive victory itself in a large-scale pop action film.
– New York Times reviewer Elvis Mitchell, 16 December 2003
They cursed us. Murderer they called us. They cursed us, and drove us away. And we wept, Precious, we wept to be so alone. ... And we forgot the taste of bread ... the sound of trees ... the softness of the wind. We even forgot our own name.
– Gollum (Andy Serkis)
