New Zealand filmmaker Peter Jackson fulfills his lifelong dream of transforming author J.R.R. Tolkien's best-selling fantasy-epic into a three-part motion picture that begins with this holiday 2001 release. Elijah Wood stars as Frodo Baggins, a Hobbit resident of the medieval "Middle-Earth" who discovers that a ring bequeathed to him by beloved relative and benefactor Bilbo (Ian Holm) is in fact the "one ring," a device that will allow its bearer to manipulate dark powers and enslave the world. Frodo is charged by the wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) to return the ring to Mount Doom, the evil site where it was forged millennia ago and the only place where it can be destroyed. Accompanying Frodo is a fellowship of eight others: his Hobbit friends Sam (Sean Astin), Merry (Dominic Monaghan), and Pippin (Billy Boyd); plus Gandalf; the human warriors Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen) and Boromir (Sean Bean); Elf archer Legolas (Orlando Bloom); and Dwarf soldier Gimli (John Rhys-Davies). The band's odyssey to the dreaded land of Mordor, where Mount Doom lies, takes them through the Elfish domain of Rivendell and the forest of Lothlorien, where they receive aid and comfort from the Elf princess Arwen (Liv Tyler), her father Elrond (Hugo Weaving), and Queen Galadriel (Cate Blanchett). In pursuit of the travelers and their ring are Saruman (Christopher Lee) -- a traitorous wizard and kin, of sorts, to Gandalf -- and the Dark Riders, under the control of the evil, mysterious Sauron (Sala Baker). The Fellowship must also do battle with an ogre, flying spies, Orcs, and other deadly obstacles both natural and otherwise as they draw closer to Mordor. Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring (2001) was filmed in Jackson's native New Zealand simultaneously with its pair of sequels, The Two Towers (2002) and The Return of the King (2003).
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.

This movie is not only breath taking, it is an increadible experiance. I have seen the movie 4 times and never tired of it. I highly recomend this to anyone!
you know in this story bulacan like alister
I have watched the DVD version many times. Very disappointed to find many scenes removed in the Blu ray version: Elrond's council, inside Moria, in Lorien. The story has lost a lot.
I have watched so many movies... too many, maybe. But never had any of them ever etched in my mind as much as the FOTR did. The visual effects and cinematography are stunning. Every scene is breathtaking -- The Shire, Rivendell, Lothlorien, the Misty Mountains, the River Bruinen, the Great River Anduin, and even the darkest place like Moria. The casts are so perfect for their roles. The score is majestic. I have watched Beautiful Mind. How it beated the FOTR at the Academy Awards I still do not understand.
This is one of the best movies I have seen for the year so far!!!, after I saw the moview, I read the book. I must say, the book is not that much different from the movie...oviously the book is more detailed...the second part of the movie, I anticipate will be even better, because the book was a page turner.... after I had finished reading the entire book, in my mind I could envision the actual movie... the book was very clear and I can't wait to see the second part. the special effects are absolutely stunning. The directors did a great job with everything.
If you love JRR Tolkiens Lord of the Rings or fantasy/adventure you have to see Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings Trilogy!! Elija Wood (Frodo), Orlando Bloom (Legolas), Viggo Mortensen (Stider/Aragorn), Sir Ian McKellen (Gandalf), Hugo Weaving (Elrond) and the others are outstanding!! This is a movie that does some justice to the book despite a few differences between them!! Excellent a must see!
A good introduction to the lore and characters and the setting. Good acting, characters, soundtrack, direction, etc.
I got my copies of all three blu-ray discs in and they are NOT the extended versions they are the theatrical cuts.
lord of the rings is one big epic movie it rocks from begining to the very end!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
