The Lord Of The Rings is one of the best movie franchises ever to be brought to the big screen. With the fantastic trilogy LOTR is known to be one of the greatest series of films on the entire planet. But however without this film, The Fellowship Of The Ring, the rest of the series would never of been as greatr as they are to date.
This chapter of the franchise is very close to the book in my opinion so for all of those people who have read the books this is definately for you. The plot is very interesting and is destined to have you hooked throughout the entire motion picture. Peter Jackson (the director) has most definately created a perfect work of art in which we can loose ourselves into this amazing fantasy world and forget about the troubles in the real world. There are some very well designed creatures such as the orcs and the elves and they're beautiful things if you look at them in the right way.
With the amazingly star studded cast you'd think that this film would be too focused on these stars. Well I can tell you that the amazing cast are still in the spotlight but it still focuses on the story we are all expecting. There are even some career bests from hobbit Elijah Wood, Ian Mckellen and Orlando Bloom. B efore I close this review I must mention Christopher Lee's chilling portrayal as Saruman the white. He's the type of actor who didn't over do the role and he still managed to give me a chill down my spine.
Overall it is essential that this dvd is on your shelf right now. Because it's one film to rule them all!
