This third and final film of “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy caps off the series with the best film of the three, and incidentally it went on to win eleven Academy awards. The acting is superb and the actors won a SAG Award for the best ensemble cast for a film in 2003. The direction is top notch, as is the music and writing. This one is the most emotional film of the three as there is death and loss and it ties up all the loose ends.
However, it rates a four in our violence category and anything above a level two cannot be approved by Dove. It is a shame as this is the only area of content which prevents us from awarding the film our Dove Seal. Perhaps a good edited copy which will cut down the number of violent scenes will show up on television.
