The film may be flawed, but its message is not.
Great example of an old-fashioned, pure-at-heart escapist event movie that doesn't pretend to be anything that it's not and has boat loads of fun being its own ludicrous self.
A clunky actioner with a handful of cool moments.
Lord of the rings (as in the trilogy) are my favourite set of movies or movie of all time. The cast couldn't have been better, the story line was epic and the way they made it from JRR Tolkien's book into a film was superb. It's such an advanced world that seems real. It is so advanced it doesn't feel like a fantasy film. You really need to watch the whole trilogy because it's the BEST MOST AWESOME EPIC WONDERFUL AMAZING TRILOGY OR MOVIES EVER!!!! Ian Mckellen, Elijah Wood and Sean Astin were brilliant! The whole plot of this film seems real. It is so well planned and I thought Peter Jackson is the best director for these movies!
This movie has it all. Great characters, good acting, a good story, fantastic scenes and so much more. This movie contains a love story, much humor, great battles and action scenes. What more can you ask for?
For those who haven't read the novels like me, the movie is an utter crap. I don't understand why it has so high rating.The timeline, conversations, names, places are confusing. The whole story and events are badly related. The characters are badly developed. Very often you don't know what enemies they are fighting against. Do save yourself 3 hours.
A year before this came out I was reading the Lord of the Rings books one summer. It felt a little vague but I was interested by all the fantasy themes and the origins of most contemporary fantasy sagas, especially those under the Dungeons and Dragons brand. Elves, dwarves, hobbits, trolls, spirits, wizards, warriors, and rogues are all in here. I'd hoped there would be more good fantasy films after the 1980s' Willow and this was what we got. As the first film it really sets up the story for an epic series. Lots of good visuals and breathtaking vistas from New Zealand, whose landscapes are untouched by modern technology. Plus, there's a cast of likable stars. John Rhys-Davies, Ian McKellen, Sean Astin, and Ian Holm all contributed to this major event. The dwarves and the hobbits were just as good as the others and brought some comic relief to the story. If you're in the mood for a trilogy that could rival even Star Wars, this should be it!
