Quick Review

This last part of the trilogy brought it all together in a fascinating way. I've read a lot of critique about the multiple endings but I don't see it. It feels perfect to me. Only the Legolas CGI acrobatics become too much here and he ends up as something close to a superhero. I was never fully convinced regarding the relationship issues between Frodo and Sam either, but I remained thoroughly entertained throughout. A milestone.
