I've just bought this Lord of the Rings trilogy collection on blu-ray, and I was excited to get it. It is truly wonderful. I've already tried all three movies, and the video transfers are wonderful, the best among them is the picture of the Return of the King, the third movie, but all movies look and sound very good on the ultimate format. The special features are very interesting, although not as expanded, as the special features of the extended versions, but I still find them very... (read more)

Lord of The Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring - I'm one of those people some movie freaks hate...I always compare movies to the book. In this case even though Peter Jackson had to cut some things for times sake, he still managed to capture the essence of the Lord of the Rings. If you love fantasy and I mean good fantasy (any reader knows that it's not hard to find fantasy only good fantasy) you will love this movie, or let me say these movies. From the first moments of The Fellowship of... (read more)

The Lord of The Rings trilogy movies are spectacularly made. Buy this classic trilogy if you love action, adventure, comedy and love. These three movies directed by Peter Jackson are masterpieces. The landscapes and cities are incredible works of art, and the footage of New Zealand is beautiful. Join the journey with four hobbits as they attempt to destroy the ring of power in Mount Doom, the mountain from which it was made. Phenomenal movies!! (read more)

Lord of The Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring - Sod off, Harry Potter. This is how a fantasy film should be made. J.R.R Tolkien`s masterpiece
gets the screen treatment it truly deserves and the result is an impact audiences haven`t felt since George Lucas blew us away with Star Wars or the Wachowski brothers stunned us with The Matrix.
Had the film been a Jerry Bruckheimer and Michael Bay collaboration, it would have had daft action, silly characters and terrible dialogue. Thank... (read more)

Lord of the Rings, The Fellowship of the Ring has got to be one of the most imaginative stories ever written. The cast are brilliant, each bringing their characters to life. Elijah Wood plays the Hobbit Frodo, who is the ringbearer and who's job it is to destroy the ring in mordor. With him on the journey are Aragorn (played by Viggo Mortensen), Legolas the elf (Orlando Bloom - Pirates of the Caribbean), Gimli the Dwarf, Arwen (Liv Tyler), the Wizard Gandalf (Ian Mckellen),Borimir and of...

Lord of the Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring is is one of the best films ever to be made, and this being the first, and with the second being just as good, it looks like a triligy to rival the likes of Star Wars, Indiana Jones and other movie epics. There isn't a part to this film that is bad, the only slight downsideis the impractical length, you've got to start watching it early in the evening to watch it all and not stay up too late, and it doesn't half make you go numb. The Graphics... (read more)

This is a very nice and exiting movie. I Give the movie 9. In general the rolls are good casted... But: The Elver king is very badly casted (you know, the agent from Matrix. Not enough of Liv Tyler, Christoffer Lee, dark scenes. The DVD is VERY over estimated, course of the 30 minutes of extra, the 13 minutes goes to extra L O N G running text!!

Lord of the Rings-The Fellowship of the Ring was by far much better then i thought it was going to be. I found it to be over all a great movie almost better then the book. It picked you up and put you right into Middle earth and held you my the set of your pance until the movie was over with. I'm hoping that The Two Towers is just as good if not better the Fellowship of the Ring. (read more)

Forget all the other films you've seen with head-band wearing barbarians, rubber dragons and bad acting, Lord of the Rings is THE fantasy film.
The story starts off in Hobbiton where the hero Frodo is given a ring which he soon finds out can allow one to control the world, as well as turn invisible.
He has to journey through middle earth in a quest to destroy the ring, which is being sought by the evil lord Sauron.
Chases by the very creepy ring wraiths, and meetings with elves, and close... (read more)

Having never read the books, The Fellowship of The Ring compels me to do so. Set in New Zealand, some scenes set not too far from where I live, it brings a welcome familiarity to me. Though three hours long, not once did I find myself shuffling in my seat or looking up the walls. Great scenery, spectacular special effects and intruiging characters made this one of the best movies I've ever seen. Though not particularly into the wizard/goblin fantasy thing myself, I'd still recommend people... (read more)

I think the movie: 'The Lord of The Rings' speaks for itself. It was a very enjoyable movie that had an involving plot and likeable characters. It also contained humour in the right places. The only thing that i thought was a bit weak was that they made it seem like the fellowship had only been travelling for a week. (read more)

I am not a great film-goer, (there are so many appalling films around), so I wasn't relishing three hours sitting in the cinema. However, this film has rekindled my enthusiasm for the cinema. It was three solid hours of action-packed adventure and suspense. The computer generated graphics were absolutely fantastic, the casting was excellent (although perhaps Aragorn could have been a bit harder!), and the scenery breathtaking. Makes me want to holiday in New Zealand. I have never been to... (read more)

I was a little concerned at the prospect of 3 hours in the cinema watching a "childrens' fantasy film", but I was totally absorbed. The time just went by. This film is action, action, action. So much so, that my wife says I didn't acknowledge she was there with me. (In trouble again!). The scenery and special effects were just breathtaking. Remember it's a trilogy though, or you'll be puzzled by the ending. (read more)

The Lord of the Rings does not need review notes. Being part of the movie premiere, I felt as lucky and special as those who read the the original literary first editions all those years ago.

The locations and added graphics on The Fellowship of The Ring weaved together a back drop for an adventure that allows grown ups to be children again. And as children they join their heroes on the adventure they all wished they had taken part in....Each new character, met with knowing nods and appreciative murmurs reminicent of old friends meeting again. 'oohs and aahs' were heard from all corners as daydreams and mental pictures came to life on the screen. Tension, laughter and sadness... (read more)

This Film is one of the best that I have ever seen. It was tense from start to finish it kept the old heart beating at a good rate. The Scenery in the film absolutely takes your breath away. I had to see it a second time as I missed bits of the film first time due the picturesque landscapes.
The performances of the leads characters were fantastic. I thought Ian Mckellans performance as the magical Gandalf was the best of his film career. I was also surprised by Viggo Mortensen who was... (read more)

The Lord of the Rings Part 1 (The Fellowship of the Ring) leaves you desperate for the next installment. Part 2 - The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers is due out next December. I think I'll read the book. I like the way the film portrays the ring as being so desirable that it brings out the evil in the hearts of even the good characters. Tolkien has a clear understanding of how our desires can ensnare us and cause us to deceive ourselves to get what we want. (read more)

I did not read the books apart from The Hobbit so did not know the background detail of Lord of The Rings, however I thought the story was well told even if I have missed things that are not in the book. I don't consider myself a LOTR fanatic or fan just a good action/sci fi movie goer.
This movie is intensely gripping right from the start, it may be nearly three hours long but boy does it fly! I can honestly say I've not seen any other movie as captivating as this one, you will be on the... (read more)

Well I am sure glad that I got those personal matters out of the way because the Lord of the Rings movie is nearly three hours long and quite a few people had to leave the cinema during the movie to attend to theirs. My recommendation is do not go into the cinema guzzling fluids.
This movie is LONG and tedious. If I had read the books and been more of a fan I could have probably enjoyed it more. My 8-1/2 year old daughter nearly went to sleep midway into the movie. Yes, I know the movie's... (read more)

Fanatics of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy as well as those who have not read the books will both love this movie. Exciting action built around a well told story, the movie will hold your attention from the opening scenes of the great Wizard Gandalf's visit to the hobbits in the Shire to the dramatic finish. This is truly a must see movie.
The storyline is a simple one, although the history behind it is much richer than can be explained in a short review. The movie does a fantastic job... (read more)

The Lord of the Rings is a great film for older children especially those that have read the book. The shortest 3 hours spent in a cinema. The special effects are fantastic and the acting superb. Simply one of the best films I've ever seen. However, I dont think its suitable for anyone under the age of 10 due to fight scenes similar to those at the beginning of Gladiator. (read more)
