ROTK (Return of the King) Review.

Ok, First of all, I think this was a horrible movie, in comparison to what it could have been. They obviously abandoned us Tolkien purists for the mass audiences who haven't even read the books. But otherwise I think it was one of the better movies of the year. The movie starts off showing Deagol (Gollum's brother) and Smeagol fishing. As you know Deagol found the ring and Smeagol killed him for it, then he took it into the Misty Mountains. Anyway, it generally follows the book, but it places too much emphasis on the army of the dead. It also made the battle for Minas Tirith a lot shorter and less complex than it should have been. Also, in front of the Black Gate, it never showed the Mouth of Sauron. And of course they managed to put in Arwen where she wasn't supposed to be for some reason that I don't understand. So, Overall I would give it a 4.5 out of 5.
