Movie Info

The future of civilization rests in the fate of the One Ring, which has been lost for centuries. Powerful forces are unrelenting in their search for it. But fate has placed it in the hands of a young Hobbit named Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood), who inherits the Ring and steps into legend. A daunting task lies ahead for Frodo when he becomes the Ringbearer - to destroy the One Ring in the fires of Mount Doom where it was forged.

Audience Reviews for The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

    I am sad that I am just now catching up on these iconic films. The Fellowship of the Ring is a sprawling, epic and hugely ambitious film, both technically masterful and narratively gripping. It's visual splendor is pure ahead of its time magic. This film is so beautiful to behold that even in 2017, it would have blown people away. What weighs it down somewhat is its excessive length that adds several battering fight scenes, that sometimes border on tedium. But the spectacular grandiosity of it all invokes a feeling of nostalgia and awe at the fantasy elements and characters. A truly exciting start to the series. Rating: 83

    It is my firm belief that the standard versions of The Lord of the Rings should be jettisoned in favour of the extended editions universally. Sure, the near 4 hour runtime is a tad steep, but for an absolute masterpiece like this, it's work every second and the first act of undoubtedly the best trilogy in cinematic history!

    The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring has beautiful visuals, ambitious story, great characters, heart and is brooding as well. This film is an example of breathtaking filmmaking and is one of the best films of all time!

    This is probably the best of the three movies and there are many reasons why. This is the movie that started the entire series and, man, did it do that in the most beautiful way imaginable. This movie introduced us to what we all know now as Middle-earth, the most magical and beautiful place ever seen on the screen. We have an entire fellowship of characters who all have very different personalities, but are able to put aside their differences and work together in order to bring the One Ring into the last place any normal being would ever want to enter. This is a perfect movie in almost every thinkable way.
