In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-Earth still it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell, by chance, into the hands of the Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins. On his eleventy-first birthday, Bilbo disappeared, bequeathing to his young cousin, Frodo, the Ruling Ring, and a perilous quest: to journey across Middle-Earth, deep into the shadow of the Dark Lord and destroy the Ring by casting it into the Cracks of Doom.

The movie kind of made up its own story. I wish it was more true to the novel.

The Fellowship of the Ring is a timeless classic, in which J.R.R. Tolkien essentially created a new genre. He created an incredible world full of magic and a real political landscape, and was able to invent new creatures and cultures. He created the modern genre of fantasy with this book. Any references to elves, or orcs, or trolls, or anything of the like can most likely be traced back to this book. The book is an incredible story about destroying an influencing item of power, that corrupts and damages anyone who is near it. The story is so classic and I believe everyone should read it once in their life. 5/5 @ecozones of the Teen Review Board of the Hamilton Public Library

The Lord of the Rings trilogy are awesome. Back then, I didn't really pay attention to the storyline and was most fascinated with only the actions scenes. But watching it many years later I was amazed at how good the movie is, aside from the fight scenes of course. All three films are so awesome that when "The Hobbit" came out I watched it too. I wish to one day hear news about The Lord of the Rings being made again, just like the Star Wars series.

The best fantasy movie ever created!
Peter Jackson has crafted lush, dense, authentic, magnificent videos
of each book of the Lord of the Rings trilogy,
true to both the spirit and details of Tolkien’s monumental text.
The Hobbit, prequel to the saga,
became a pointless clownish cartoon under Jackson’s direction,
but the LOTR series is a triumph in every sense.

I liked this Sci-Fi DVD. It is not appropriate for children. There is a lot of violence. I like the whole series. I like the whole series for "The Hobbit" and "The Lord Of The Rings". I recommend watching "The Hobbit" first.

This extremely long movie is worth every minute, since it is one of the best fantasy/action films ever made. A magical and dangerous ring that has the power to completely destroy civilization forever rests in the hands of a hobbit named Frodo. He must bring the ring to Mount Doom and destroy it before it gets in the wrong hands. The imagery and cinematography of the film is breathtaking and the special effects are truly revolutionary. Peter Jackson outdid himself with this film and gained the franchise series many loyal fans. I would rate this movie 5/5 stars and recommend it to anyone with an appreciation for good film and fantasy @The_Reviewer of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

The Fellowship Of The Ring is a beautiful, magical, and mesmerizing film based on the book by famous author J.R.R. Tolkien. It is the first of the Lord Of The Rings trilogy, and follows the story of a hobbit named Frodo through his journey to destroy the powerful One Ring. Everything about this movie is flawless, including the scenery, the costumes, the characters, and the plot. This film has done an amazing job at truly bringing the characters and story to life. Although it is kind of long, it is incredibly entertaining and captivating so you definitely won’t get bored or tired. Rating 4/5 stars.

"The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth."

As far as I'm concerned, this film is near perfect. Peter Jackson's vision for the trilogy is unprecedented and the casting was spot-on. (Even if I'm still pouting over the absence of Tom Bombadil.)

Gandalf: You Cannot Pass! I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the Flame of Anor. The dark fire will not avail you, Flame of Udun! Go back to the shadow. You Shall Not Pass!

"You have been chosen, and you must therefore use such strength and heart and wits as you have."

GALADRIEL: Rumour grew of a shadow in the East, whispers of a nameless fear and the ring of power perceived its time had now come. It abandoned Gollum. But something happened then the ring did not intend. It was picked up by the most unlikely creature imaginable: a Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins of the Shire. For the times will soon come when Hobbits will shape the fortunes of all...

smaugthestupendous Sep 15, 2013

GALADRIEL'S INTRO: But the hearts of men are easily corrupted. And the ring of power has a will of its own. It betrayed Isildur to his death. And some things that should not have been forgotten were lost. History became legend, legend became myth and for two and a half thousand years, the ring passed out of all knowledge until, when chance came, it ensnared a new bearer.
