"The only way to watch Lord Of The Rings"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This set is how the movies should of been released, but due to the time restrictions they had to cut it… All the new scenes flow into the old and the new score allows it all to blend. These films are not just the uncut they are all new films, totally different…

"An experience as much as a movie viewing"
5 stars"

This box set is the only thing you will ever need to own. A must buy for all the fans out there, itching for some more Lord of the Rings. It includes all three extended editions of the Lord of the Rings and is damn cheap for everything it gives. A damn cool looking box, three book inspired dvd cases and a total of 12 dvds to watch for days on end.

"Simply Breathtaking"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Having seen the movies before I wasn't expecting much extra footage but I was wrong. The extra footage in the perfectly boxed set was amazing. It was if I was seeing the film for the very first time, simply spellbinding. The extra footage was incredibly worth it from the behind scenes interviews and the incredible special effects team. In my humble opinion it is a well earned academy award trilogy that would be a very comfortable addition to anyone's personal collection.
