The invisible wizard Peter Jackson makes use of every scene to show us the meaning of magnificence. Never has a filmmaker aimed higher, or achieved more.
The Return of the King is too long...The various story lines...come together in stilted, episodic ways. The narrative is less-than-seamless.

- While John Gilbert was editing The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) and Michael Horton was editing The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002), Jamie Selkirk was cutting the final chapter. From the start, Peter Jackson wanted his longtime associate Selkirk on The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003), as he knew Selkirk would stay focused on the climax of the entire saga.
- After Frodo tells him to go home and he starts crying, the next close-up of Sam shows where his real and fake ear meet-right above the curl of hair.
- Aragorn: We have time. Every day Frodo moves closer to Mordor.
- Gandalf: Do we know that?
- Aragorn: What does your heart tell you?
- Gandalf: That Frodo is alive. Yes. Yes, he's alive.
