Jon’s review published on Letterboxd:
I never thought I’d die fighting side by side with an elf.
How about side by side with a friend?
Aye. I could do that.
It's more focused on spectacle than the first two films but the characters still shine through. Sam especially feels more and more like the true hero of the story.
The extended version is essential for this one. Everything post-Minas Tirith feels dare I say it... Rushed... in the theatrical release. You're already going to sit there for well over three hours, you might as well make it four!
And yes, whilst it does have a hundred endings, I'd be happy to sit through a hundred more.
Perfect film. Perfect Trilogy.
