One quest, three long films and so many, many, many deaths.
And this fantastic video has managed to cram them all into one video, which documents every single on-screen death in the Lord Of The Rings trilogy in under seven minutes. For completeness, they've used the extended editions of Peter Jackson's masterpieces - a sensible move - so prepare yourself for some serious bloodshed.
As far as we know, no real orcs were harmed in the making of this, but you just never know. Wallow in the carnage by watching the video below.
