Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (Theatrical Edition Box Set) [DVD] (DVD)
This interpretation of Tolkein's books is superb.
Having read The Lord of the Rings Trilogy several times over quite a number of years, I was more than delighted when this DVD box set became available. My young daughter, in her innocence, bought me the set from a 'lookee, lookee' man on the beach front whilst on holiday in Spain. The original English dialogue was muted and there were subtitles in English and Chinese. The sound was woolly, the translation was excruciating and bore no resemblance to the original.
So when this DVD Box Set came to my attention I purchased it immediately and have not regretted it.
The computer graphics are, with no pun intended, out of this world. The sound quality was excellent and the sound effects and graphics all draw the viewer into the story, so that young or old, all become totally absorbed.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this DVD to everyone, except the very young who may be of a nervous disposition, where a little parental guidance may be necessary.
Overall: Absolutely brilliant.
