great movie

on 5/12/2012

I loved the movie and can't wait for the DVD - but encourage all like minded fans to wait before buying this version. Why? New Line's marketing is rumored to be releasing three versions of the Fellowship of the Ring - this version, a four disc R rated version with a half hour of additional footage (to be released November 12, 2002), and a full-blown gift set that combines the 11/2002 version with an expanded version of the National Geographic "Making of" documentary. My advice - RENT this version until the full DVD version is released and can figure out if the additional footage is for you, then buy the version you prefer. Read More

Editors Note
Note 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 trilogy also includes THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE TWO TOWERS and THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING.
Reviews
New York Times "...The playful spookiness of Mr. Jackson's direction provides a lively, light touch..." 12/19/2001 p.E1
USA Today "...A faithful and visually spectacular adaptation of the first volume in Tolkien's trilogy....RINGS has moment of edge-of-the-seat excitement..." 12/21/2001 p.8E
Rolling Stone "...FELLOWSHIP is the real deal, a movie epic that pops your eyes out, piles on thrills and fun, and yet stays intimately attuned to character..." 01/17/2002 p.55-6
Variety "...[The film] looks to please the book's legions of fans with its imaginatively scrupulous rendering of the tome's characters and worlds on the screen....McKellen delivers Gandalf with great relish and gusto..." 12/10/2001 p.31-6
Box Office "...Jackson has captured something of the depth, breadth, and melancholy grandeur of Tolkien's vision. And that is magic, indeed..." 02/01/2002 p.59
Sight and Sound "...Jackson has translated the best-loved fantasy novel of our age into a commanding screen adventure, one with a sense of human terror and danger and grit under its nails..." 02/01/2002 p.49-52
Hollywood Reporter "...Well-made and well-cast....Masterfully paced and one of those rewarding movies that seems to get better as it progresses..." 12/04/2001 p.8-82
