Description
With THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING, director Peter Jackson has achieved a meticulous and captivating adaptation of the first book of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic fantasy trilogy. The setting is Middle-earth, a mythological land populated by elves, dwarves, humans, and the gentle, diminutive hobbits upon whom the story centers. One hobbit, Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood), unexpectedly comes into possession of an ancient magical ring so powerful it invariably corrupts anyone who wears it. In order to prevent the ring's erstwhile owner, the dark lord Sauron, from reclaiming the ring and taking over Middle-earth, a motley band of comrades set out to destroy it in the fires of Mount Doom, where it was forged. Included in the group are Frodo and hobbits Sam (Sean Astin), Merry (Dominic Monoghan), and Pippin (Billy Boyd); the wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen); human warriors Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen) and Boromir (Sean Bean); the dwarf Gimli (John Rhys-Davies); the elf Legolas (Orlando Bloom). Along the way, they wage battle with monsters, demons, and Sauron's evil minions, all brought to life by spectacular digital technology.
Jackson's grandiose production represents the first of three films that he wrote and directed, derived from Tolkien's beloved novels. Fourteen months in the making, at a cost of $270 million, all three installments were filmed at once in New Zealand where diverse landscapes lend themselves particularly well to the mystical realm of Middle-earth. The story continues with THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE TWO TOWERS and THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING.

"the journey begins"

Created: 05/02/06
no matter who you are and what you like, this dvd must be added to your collection!
the lord of the rings the:fellowship of the ring is incredibly far fetched. its a movie full of elves, hobbits, dwarves and wizards. however, its a lost more interesting than it seems. for such a wierd film, its got an easily understood plot and it doesnt appear to bizzare as all the character look like humans just with either bigger feet or ears ,apart from the orcs that is, they just look like toy soldiers that've been in the microwave for a few seconds.
by far this is the best film of the trilogy, but you really do need to see the other two afterwards even if you didn't enjoy the first.
i would love to say i loved this movie yet my feelings towards it are alternating, when i saw it in the cinema i fell in love with it but then i got it on dvd only watched it once, then for a period i wathced it almost every day.
to understand this movie fully you need to be open minded about the nature of "middle earth" and its creatures, and if you look passed that you will enjoy the movie for what it is, brilliance!!!

The Lord of the Rings

Created: 01/09/09
This movie & the other 2,i think r fantastic.I was eagerly awaiting it as i had read the books & loved them.I never thought they would turn out so good,as often a bestseller is never the same made into a movie,but this movie is just amazing & u can hardly wait to see the other 2.The characters were all perfect & played their roles extremely well.I could quite imagine myself living in that time(well who would'nt with the likes of Legolas)when i watch the film.I have watched them countless times & will watch them countless times again.I think its the kind of movie u will never tire of.Absolutely fab from beginning to end.Any1 out there who has'nt watched them dos'nt know what they r missing.There is s-thing for every1 in these films,great characters to feast yr eyes on,great special effects,fab scenery,amazing fighting scenes& of course seeing the Orks getting wiped out at the end.I have read some reviews that people have said its not as good as the book as there were scenes cut out,but in my opinion i think its every bit as good.I would def rate this excellent & a lot more.5*****

I think I've found my all-time favourite film!

Created: 26/06/06
I can't disagree with the last review more. Yes, large sections of the book were sacrificed but in my opinion, that doesn't matter one jot. This is not a book, it's a film. To have translated every single part of the book into the film would have made for a pretty terrible film. They are two radically different media, accept it. The important thing to realize is that the main themes and spirit of Tolkien's work survived the transition.
Looking at the film qua film, there's nothing to fault here. The casting is spot on, nail on the head perfect with top-notch acting. The special effects, make up and cinematography are breathtaking - New Zealand IS Middle Earth. Even with a running time of 3 hours, it doesn't feel 3 hours. The fast editing pace ensures that the audience never gets bored yet the narrative remains comprehensible. Howard's Shore's score is beautifully evocative; it underscores the themes and emotions wonderfully. Also, despite taking in many different musical styles (Celtic, psuedo-religious choruses,bombastic fanfares and eerie modal passages to name a few) he somehow manages to make the whole thing stylistically coherent. Take a bow Mr. Shore.
As an adaptation, this is as good as you're going to get. The film is meticulously researched and so what if certain roles have been expanded? Arwen, although having little page time in the book does play a very important part. There's plenty of textual evidence to suggest that she is always on Aragorn's mind. That can be evoked easily in text as background but it's nigh on impossible to achieve a similar thing in film so it makes sense to bring Arwen out of the appendix and make her a fully fleshed out character to make Aragorn's motives make sense. Secondly, the extra Arwen material was not written "for" Liv Tyler, she was simply hired to play a role, that's how the part was written anyway. As for Saruman's expanded role; a flesh and blood person makes for a much more effective cinematic villain than "a great eye, lidless and wreathed in flame" would. It works fine in the book but not for a film. Any changes made were sensible, they make for a better movie. I would much rather have a very good film with changes than a slavishly faithful bad one. Thankfully, this film falls into the former camp. And with the DVD extras, it should become even better!

Lord of the Rings I

Created: 03/02/10
I know i should love this movie. The special effects are great. The acting is good. The story is amazing and i loved the book. I don't know why i don't. Don't get me wrong, i would happily watch all 3. Just something that does not float my boat.

And it's not the genre. I love Star Wars, Spiderman, Batman etc. I just think that i'm not into the fantasy element. I just don't want to be any of the characters.

But as i said it is a very watch-able film. I can see how many would love it and i think i would be happy to recommend it to anyone. And i think this, the first, is the best.

The Lord of the Rings-A great start to the trilogy

Created: 29/04/06
The Lord of the Rings,i thought was a superb film as its the type of film that you rather love when you first watch it or you dont,its that simple.It has everything a action/fanasty film has to have.Ie Special effects which i personal thought were fantastic.
Plenty of action for those people who like to see it,a superb storyline and great acting from the cast however the only negatives were it went on for ages as its over 2 and half hours long and its not for the faint hearted ie those who get bored easily but saying this i would highly recomend it to anyone as i simply loved it.
