Item Details

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.

This is a 2001 epic fantasy directed by Peter Jackson based on the first volume of J. R. R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings (1954–1955)."
It is the first instalment in the "Lord of the Rings film series."
"The Lord of the Rings" is an epic fantasy novel.
The story began as a sequel to Tolkien's 1937 fantasy novel "The Hobbit," but eventually developed into a much larger work.
It is one of the best-selling novels ever written, with over 150 million copies sold.
The prologue shows the Dark Lord Sauron in the Second Age attempting to conquer Middle-Earth using his One Ring.
In battle against the Elves and Men, Prince Isildur cuts the Ring from Sauron's hand, destroying his physical form and vanquishing his army.
However, Sauron's "life force" is bound to the Ring, allowing him to survive while the Ring remains.
Isildur, corrupted by the Ring's power, refuses to destroy it.
When Isildur is killed by Orcs, the Ring is lost in a river for 2,500 years.
The Ring is found by Smeagol (or Gollum, as he is later called), who possesses it for 500 years until it is found by the Hobbit Bilbo Baggins in the tunnels of the Misty Mountains.
The rest of the story, however, is so boring that I quit halfway through.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the ring is a fantastic movie that is extremely entertaining for the whole family. It is a Pg-13 movie and, is based on the book series of J.R.R Tolkien. You will enjoy watching this amazing movie, because of the great adventures it will take you on. It is voted #50 on the American Film list of 100 greatest American films as it is also the second greatest fantasy film ever. Watch it and be amazed of how good the movie is. This movie is based upon the adventures of a hobbit named Frodo Baggins. Frodo Baggins and eight companions set out on an adventure to Mount Doom to destroy the One Ring invested in power and the dark lord Sauron. This one ring is capable of destroying so much and can only be destroyed in Mount Doom of Mordor. As the group, moves its way to Mount Doom, many ups and downs are in their way, but they continue their journey to destroy the ring. You would love how much work Peter Jackson put in this movie. The 3 hour long movie keeps you sitting at the end of your seat and takes you on an adventure as well. You should’ve seen the different emotions my sister and I had on our faces throughout the entire movie. As it grabs your attention the graphics of the movie were presented in captivating ways. Can’t wait to see The Lord of the Rings: The Two towers next!

This film, series and genre, geared for and supported by a young audience, has been overrated.

I enjoyed this movie more than the first, but I am not sure why. However, Gollum got to be a bit much (way too much) with his tortured soul and that at the end made the movie drag, and took away some of the magic.

This third part of the series is really about true friend who saves you from temptation and bad influence. Good for kids.

Violence: violent battle scenes,one part a orc get his intestons riped out.

Violence: Violence is really not that bad, compared to modern day movies. Also not violent compared to the second and third movies.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Orcs are frightening, as well as the ring wrathes, which really creeped me out when i watched it. Don't let children under 10 watch it. some images are unpleasant and may cause nightmares for children and some older people.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: When I first saw this film the orcs frightened me. They are very gross and there are many disturbing images of the orcs being killed.

Aragorn: Hold your ground, hold your ground! Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you *stand, Men of the West!*

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...

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.
