HKFanatic's rating of the film The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

It's an improvement on "Two Towers" in the sense that the awkward comedy has been left behind. But when I watch this movie, I can't help but feel like the last 20-30 minutes are a perfunctory series of "Well, we've got to have this scene and this scene, etc." It gets from Point A to Point B and so on, but not in a manner I find particularly inspiring. Still, the trilogy was a monumental achievement.
