The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

Title: The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

Year: 2001

Production Company: New Line Cinema

Summary: When the One Ring falls into the hands of a small hobbit, Frodo, he must set off from the comforts of the Shire to journey on a dangerous mission with his good friend (and gardener), Sam, to destroy the Ring before Sauron, evil ruler of Mordor, discovers its existence.

Main Characters:
~ Frodo Baggins
~ Samwise Gamgee
~ Gandalf the Gray
~ Aragorn
~ Meriadoc Brandybuck (Merry)
~ Peregrin Took (Pippin)
~ Gimli, Son of Gloin
~ Legolas Greenleaf
~ Boromir

Characters: An excellent cast!

Plot: Not so true to the book as we would have liked, but still very impressive!

Music: This score was written perfectly for the film! Flowing up and down with each change of scene, it really set the mood for every scenario in the film.

Scenery:  Most of the scenes were dark, but you could tell how skillfully crafted they were. The Shire was beautiful and so rich in colors that you couldn't help but love it, and Rivendell and Lothlorien were simply breathtaking with the intricate details!

Advisory: Many dark themes, fighting sequences, and frightening images (i.e. several scenes with the Ringwriaths, one disturbing scene involving orcs being dug up under the tower of Orthanc, a part with a giant sea monster (the Watcher) at the gate of Moria, a battle with a cave troll in the mines of Moria, and a Balrog at the Bridge of Khazad-Dum).

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
