All of the shire has come to Bilbo's birthday party. But when he annouches he's leaving and vanishes right in front of the
whole shire only Gandaulf knows the truth. What Gandaulf discovers is the magic ring Bilbo once found in Golem's cave of
gloom is the one ring. The ring that can stop Sauron from being resurrected back to life and destroying Middle Earth. The
only way to stop this is to take the ring to the place from which it was forged, Mount Doom.
But the temptation of the evil ring is too great for man, the burdon falls about Bilbo's nephew Frodo to take the ring
to it's destruction in the very heart of the Mordor.
The trip is dangerous with the monstrous Ring Wraths nipping on their heals. Frodo's only chance is the Fellowship, a
group of warriors dedicated to protecting Frodo and Samwise from the forces of Mordor.
This has got to be the first great monster movies of the new century. Speaking as a fan of the Rankin and Bass animated versions
I was impressed. The monsters, the story, just perfect. I can't think of anything wrong with this movie.
I GIVE IT (10 STARS)
Everything Zedd said is absultley right and more. This is also the first epic of the new century. The backdrops are just
awsome and the make up effects are perfect. I also can't think of anything bad about this movie.
I ALSO GIVE IT (10 STARS)
ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS)
+ SCALE (The scale of this movie rivals "Gone With The Wind" and "The 10 Commandments")
+ MONSTERS (Good moonsters effects from Golem to the creature in the mine)
+ SIZE (I like the fact that the hobbits are hobbit size)
+ EFFECTS (Perfect effects)
ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES)
- NOTHING (I can't think of anything wrong with this movie, it's just perfect)
