Movie Review – The Lord of the Rings — The Fellowship of the Ring


I have a fantasy adventure movie review. The Lord of the Rings. The Fellowship of the ring.

Dark Lord Sauron

Dark Lord Sauron

A great battle for middle earth was fought at Mount Doom. Sauron was defeated. The ring was lost for 2500 years.

The ring was found by Gollum. He took it into the Misty Mountains. There, it consumed him and brought him an unnatural long life. For 500 years, the ring poisoned his mind and body.  Then it abandoned Gollum and a hobbit named Bilbo Baggins of the Shire found it.  He kept it for 60 years.  Then it begins to change him.

The ring was given to Frodo Baggins as the story begins.
Soon, Frodo learns of his troubling destiny, to return the ring back to the land of Mordor from which it came. He along with his friends, Samwise (Sam ) Gamgee, Meriadoc (Merry) Brandybuck, and Peregrin (Pippin ) Took, begin the journey to Mordor.
Along their journey, they are joined by Gandalf, Aragon ( Strider ), Boromir, Gimli, and Legolas( Master Elf) the elf archer. Together they form the fellowship of the ring.

The nine in fellowship begin their journey to Mordor to drop the ring into the fires of Mount Doom from which it was formed.
Along their journey, they pass through the Pass of Caradhras.  The evil wizard Saruman uses his powers to defeat them on the mountain.

Balrog Demon from Ancient World

Balrog Demon from Ancient World

They  leave the mountain and travel through the Mines of Moria where they battle the Orcs, a cave-troll, and a Balrog, a demon from the ancient world. Gandalf is dragged into the underworld by the Balrog.

Saruman sends the Orcs to capture them. The Orcs capture Merry and Pippin. They kill Boromir.  Frodo sets out on his own to take the ring to Mordor. Sam follows.  Aragon, Gimli, and Legolas, the master elf, peruse Merry and Pippin to free them from the Orcs.

That is where the movie ends. The Lord of the Rings is a great movie with spectacular scenery and special effects. I hope you enjoyed my review.

Till we talk again.
