This film adapts the final book of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy where the Hobbits, Frodo and Samwise, struggle through the barren land of Mordor to destroy the Ruling Ring in Mount Doom. At the same time, Gandalf and the others wage a desperate battle against the forces of Sauron at Minas Tirith, but Sauron seems to have the upper hand while the source of his power, the Ring, slowly threatens to corrupt its bearers.Written by

Many Tolkien fans were disappointed when Ralph Bakshi's 1978 adaptation of "Lord of the Rings" covered only the first two books of Tolkien's trilogy. When it became clear that Bakshi would not produce a sequel, Rankin and Bass finished the story for him with this TV movie. Many Tolkien fans agree that Bakshi's film was a more mature and detailed adaptation of Tolkien's stories. See more »
Many names of locations and characters are mispronounced: Gorgoroth as Gorogoroth, Minas Tirith as Mine-as Tirith (instead of Me-nas), Cirith Ungol as Sirith Ungol (insteaf of Kirith), Smaug as Smog (instead of Sma-ug), Sauron as Soron (instead of Sow-ron), Lebennin as LebEnnin (instead of LEbennin).

I bought this movie. I had never seen it, but I figured since it had the "Return of the King" name it would be decent. I was horribly mistaken. I have tried to watch this movie about 3 times. Every single time I have fallen asleep only to be woken up by terrible music. IF you must see this film, rent it. Do not buy it. Save yourself from the torment of actually owning this movie.
Why is it so bad?
1) Terrible music sung by a guy with a terrible voice.
2) Really doesn't follow what happened in the book (I know that sometimes movies cant follow a book exactly, but this movie doesn't even attempt to do so). 3) The music was terrible. 4) Very bad animation. Speed Racer has better animation.
5) Bad music. 6) Did I mention the horrendous dialogue? Sam has around 15 minutes straight of dialogue that makes almost no sense. 7) I really hope I mentioned the horrific music.
Those are only 7 of the many reasons I have for not liking this movie. It really is not deserving of having any name that deals with any of J.R.R. Tolkiens works. This movie is a scar for anything that deals with Lord of the Rings.
