As with the rest of this edit, I enjoyed the final chapter. The story moves along briskly without jumping away of dwelling on extraneous stuff. Removing the Eye of Sauron and the searchlight bits was effective; it was still oppressive enough without that.

The last fight over the ring on the slopes of Mount Doom almost seemed too short. Almost. In the end it worked well, and got right to the final climactic fight. Followed on by the quick end of the battle at the Black Gate; could have been considered short changed, but since that is now irrelevant it held the correct amount of attention.

The postscript section even feels long in the books, and the edit does a good job of moving things along.

I sat through the end credits because of the new music added. I had not run across it before, and enjoyed the different feel it gave from the original.
