Five trilogies that surprise viewers with a third film

The conclusion of a trilogy is often considered the weakest of the three. In this list, you get a number of examples where this is not the case and of which the last part is considered the best.

revenge of the sith
Where the third film in the original ‘Star Wars’ trilogy is seen as the worst of the three, revenge of the sith considered by far the best film in George Lucas’s prequel trilogy. The film offers a number of moments that are now as iconic as many moments from the original trilogy.

Think of the fight between Anakin and Obi-Wan on Mustafar, Palpatine’s battles against Mace Windu and Yoda, Order 66, and the creation of Darth Vader. The movie has only grown in popularity over the years.

This was further evidenced by the excitement of many fans to see actors Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen return as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader in the Obi-Wan series on Disney+.

War for the planet of the apes
After the success of the first two parts of the reboot of ‘Planet of the Apes’, expectations were yet to come War for the planet of the apes very high. Expectations were not only met, but exceeded.

War for the planet of the apes It is the best movie of the trilogy. It serves as a perfect ending to Caesar’s story, again brilliantly performed by Andy Serkis. Next year we will return to the world that Caesar left in ‘War’ kingdom of the planet of the apes.

The good, the bad and the ugly
All of the films in Sergio Leone’s ‘Dollars’ trilogy are masterful films and considered classics, but The good, the bad and the ugly it’s just better than a fistful of dollars in For a few dollars more.

He made Clint Eastwood the established name he still has today, gave us some of the best music in movie history, and will always be recognizable thanks to the iconic showdown.

Before midnight
Before midnight it’s very different from the other movies on this list. There are no big action sequences or spectacular visual effects, Before Midnight is exciting in other ways.

The movie builds perfectly on the relationship between the main characters Celine and Jesse, has brilliant dialogue and fantastic performance from Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy. Everything that was ‘dreamy’ in the previous movies came true in the last movie.

Celine and Jesse had to try to make their relationship work for the long haul and this was portrayed very realistically.

Before Midnight had the same brilliant quality as the previous two films and cemented the ‘Before’ trilogy as one of the best ever.

the return of the king
The inclusion of this film does not surprise anyone at all, of course, but with good reason. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King it is the best of the three films and won no less than 11 Oscars (pretty rare for a fantasy film).

Peter Jackson managed to turn one of the best books ever into one of the best movie trilogies ever. We’re not going to see anything like this any time soon.
