An insurmountable amount of extras comes second only to New Line Home Video's stunning visual and audio transfer of Peter Jackson's exhilarating and exhausting epic.

A handsome set of Argonath bookends rounds out this exceptional five-disk DVD gift set. A total of 18 film documentaries show how much work went into the making of the films.

This DVD, with its 35 additional minutes, has the character development I desired. It has the humor I longed for. It's the fantasy film that I craved.

Honestly, what more could you ask for? In addition to getting the extended cut of the film with four commentary tracks and a new DTS ES mix for the film; there's two more discs packed full of documentary material that runs for more than six hours.

What brings all these people together, what yokes their individual creative efforts to the task at hand, is a common love of Tolkien's novel . . .

This is not only one of the greatest films ever made by anyone, but it's also the single greatest DVD in the history of the format. Period.

A project with the kind of visual grandeur on display in this movie demands a lengthy running time, and I will be watching the Extended Edition of "LOTR 1" now that I have it in my hands.

I was as enthralled by 'Fellowship of the Ring' as the most rabid, con-going, SCA-joining, Spock-ear-wearing fanboy.

Many of the extras on this disc are embarrassingly bland & blatantly promotional...Wait for the 4-disc special edition.

It's difficult to imagine J.R.R. Tolkien's masterwork being [adapted] any better than in Peter Jackson's painstakingly conceived and wondrously executed [movie].
