One review

  • This film is easily one of my favourite of all time and it ranks up with the very best films ever made!

    The story sees the Dark Lord Sauron create an evil ring to control middle earth until he was destroyed, 3000 years later the ring has found it’s way to Frodo Baggins who along with the fellowship are tasked with the mission of destroying the ring in the lands of Mordor.

    All the acting in this film is great with Elijah Wood starring as Frodo as he really made us feel connected with the character and make him feel a hero who needed support because he was the underdog. The rest of the group is also fantastic with Ian Mckellen as Gandalf The Grey and he is just so wise and great as the dominant Wizard who is also fun to be around. Viggo Mortensen is crucial with his great performance as Aragorn because his character is crucial to the story and is just like Frodo because we look through this character. Also Sean Bean does a great job as Boromir with him being the character that really struggles to grasp the addiction of the ring and really provide an interesting character.

    The story is great and I liked how a prologue was used to show the back story, also this film combines character moments, story, heartfelt moments and action incredibly well as this film never feels boring as it is always involved in one way or another. Also it has one of the most dramatic endings in film history that normally almost drives me to tears and also makes you want to just go and watch the second film. The script is also fantastic as it really has a good blend of epicness and humour that really balances it out well. The style is absolutely incredible and I have never seen a film look better then the Lord Of the rings films as it is absolutely breathtaking and helps with the epic tone. Also I think this is the most epic selection on soundtracks ever created and they all fit the films superbly.

    Overall this film is close to perfection and really builds up the anticipation for the rest of the trilogy.
