Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 39
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shadowhawke THIS is how Lord of the Rings should be viewed!!!
This is the definitive Lord of the Rings set. Not only do you get the Extended Editions of all three movies but you get the original documentaries that came with the DVD releases PLUS the rare documentaries that were in the LOTR Limited Edition set that contained both the theatrical and extended. First and foremost you are ONLY getting the Extended Edition of the films in this set, and that is perfectly fine considering the theatrical editions were already released on Blu Ray.
The picture is simply stunning and gorgeous. The colors are vibrant and crisp. I even have noticed some improvements in the scenes when it came to colors. All three movies are in stunning 1080p with 6.1 surround sound support and they sound BEAUTIFUL on a home theatre system. There is over 24 hours worth of documentaries and features included in this set. As stated above the original appendices make a comeback as well as the rare footage that was included in the Limited Edition DVD release.
If you are an avid Lord of the Rings fan or want to see the most definitive version of the trilogy then this is the set that I recommend. This is a welcome edition to any video library.
Rated 5 out of 5 by agented12 Listen all of you Lord of The Rings fans. The new Blu-Ray set is a must have for all fans. The depth and beauty of Tolkiens books are transferred to the screen magnificently. Superb is the only way to describe it. Have had it for only 1 week and have viewed it twice already. The extras are excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by brightonmonkies Awesome Collection
I loved all the bounus features and the movies looked great on blue ray. This set also includes digital copies of all the movies. That made this collection quite a money saver. Good for anyone who loves Lord of the Rings.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shelmahian Awesome!
I have been waiting for this for quite some time and it has surpassed what I expected of it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Vanwidow Awesome Movie!
Lots of new footage, good clear picture.
Rated 5 out of 5 by GinGinsis Wonderful box set with lots of extras!!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by nancym01 Perfection
This collection is outstanding. I previously owned all three individual 4 disc sets, but lost them in a fire. This set has even more information and comes beautifully boxed. It's even possible I had more fun watching the extra material than I did watching the movies (extended length, of course). I highly recommend this set.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BJSwenson EXCELLENT DEAL!! EXCELLENT MOVIES!!
Buying online, the $69.99 price was an unreal value! Currently retailing for more than $99 on other sites, it is still online here for $79.99. Not only do you get all three movies on Blu Ray with all the extras, you get all three extended versions on digital copy (at least a $45 value). If you have ever considered buying this set - BUY IT NOW, BUY IT HERE!!!
Rated 4 out of 5 by sunshine70 Nice box but beware
I ordered this as a gift for my son's birthday so I didn't open when I got it (I ordered it online). When my son opened it, to his dismay, the box set was not complete. It was packaged with the fellowship of the ring and two return of the king. There was no two towers movie in the box. Fortunately, I was able to find a store somewhat nearby that had it in stock. Aside from this little issue, it is a great box set with way more disks than anyone should ever need to watch about the movie but my son LOVES it! Also, it was cheaper at Walmart then at Costco. I was really surprised about that.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Talavar Excellent!
Each of the movies are on two BlueRay discs, just like the extended DVDs. This is not a detraction to me, but I was kind of expecting the movies to be on one disc. Of the additional material added, 15 minutes of it is "fan" credits.
I like the extended (and additional) scenes. Makes the movies quite a bit closer to the books. If you buy this, ENJOY!
Rated 5 out of 5 by merwins Great Movie Series
Love the movie series and glad that Walmart could make it available.
Rated 5 out of 5 by McGoo757 Great
Great Picture and really brings out more of the books.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MadhatterBTR Great price and fast shipping!
Bought this for my husband for Valentine's day and he loves it! The price was a deal and the shipping was really fast!
Rated 1 out of 5 by AmraLeo1 I'd been waiting years to see the extended version of these movies, so I was pretty excited about both being the extended version and being Blu-ray. It wouldn't play. It would freeze, skip, and not play the chapter I chose (I chose Chapter 6 after it froze, and it played Chapter 25). After reading about the problem online, it seems to be kind of common for Blu-ray discs. I returned it, and ordered the regular DVD extended version from somewhere else, and I'm STILL waiting to see the extended version (I've seen about 45 minutes out of almost 12 hours...). I'm done with Blu-ray, and the player upscales a regular DVD to almost Blu-ray quality, and that's a lot better than not seeing a movie I paid $80 for...
Rated 3 out of 5 by FamilyLady22 not what I expected
the quality of the movie is good. it is really clear and you can hear everything. i am a huge lord of the rings fan but i was disappointed when i receive this. i wish the original movie was also included with the extended version. i did not enjoy watching this like how i did when i went to see it in the movies. while watching this, i was like i do not remember seeing this part.
Rated 4 out of 5 by RhiannonJo Good product, awful shipping
I bought this as an anniversary present for my boyfriend. He was all excited until he opened it and pieces of the cases fell out. Every case had corners broken off and pieces missing. Definitely not what I paid almost $90 for. The "protective" cover did little to protect the cases during shipping. Since the actual blurays were fine we didn't return it but I'm still offended that a product in that poor of a condition was packaged and shipped out to a customer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ccmr8 Awesome set.
Better than I could have hope. Love it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by WlkingCntrdictn A *Must* have for any fan of the LOTR movies!
I've waited a few years for this set to come to come out. I must say, it was WELL worth the wait. I can't imagine watching this trilogy in any other fashion than through Blue-ray. It really reinforces the epic nature of these films due to the HD clarity of picture. Both the special effects and the landscape (based in New Zealand) are absolutely stunning!
One other thing to note is that all three of these films are the extended edition versions. I had never seen these versions before and I'm glad I had the chance to. There are so many deleted and extended scenes that were missing from all three of the original versions. All of these scenes are not viewed seperately in the special features section as most movies. They have been flawlessly interwoven into the actual movies. The booklets inside state that all of this was made possible by adding hundreds of new visual effects and new scores from the composer of the films.
After watching these extended versions I felt much more connected with the characters and the story of their journies. I really got more of a sense of their backgrounds and personal motivations. For timing reasons Im sure, a lot of these great little moments and bits of trivia were taken out of the original versions. I learned a lot of things about LOTR that I hadn't prior to watching these extended movies.
This set of movies are encased in a hard, metalic gold box complete with a detailed map of Middle-Earth and photo of the main cast. Each of the three movies have five discs total. The first two are the movies themselves and there are three discs worth of special features. The special features alone are really quite something. It would probably take a full day to watch them all completely. I would highly recommend purchasing this Blue-ray set. This collection really is something quite amazing and a *must* have for any fan of the LOTR movies.
Rated 5 out of 5 by olguy111 blurays are more fun
My first time with the Blu, there definetly is a noticable improvement. Walmart had the best price on the net.
Rated 5 out of 5 by tinggg awesome price awesome movie
Got this for $35 when it was on sale on walmart.com
One of the best movies ever!
Rated 4 out of 5 by socksieboy01 Fantastic especially for the amount I paid. I am a LOTR Fan and this just adds to my already awesome collection.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SuperRocketFamily One of the best movie experiences of my life!!
I really wish more movies (especially those based on books) would make extended version like this. I'd rather have a long movie that does the story justice rather than a "feature length film" that skips all the details.
Rated 5 out of 5 by pembos4 great value at walmart
Walmart had the best price anywhere. The new version of Lord of the Rings is awesome.
Rated 5 out of 5 by knscar2 awesome can only explain these movies
