Lost count how many times I’ve seen the “The Fellowship of the Ring” but still fantastic after all these years, epic on every level and just all around entertaining, the 3.5 running time just flies by. Will be watching “The Two Towers” either tonight or tomorrow followed by “The Return of the King”. **4.75/5**
Magnificent! A great start to the franchise.
‘The Lord of the Rings’ is yet another film series that I am incredibly late to viewing, at least I’ve finally got around to it… albeit almost twenty years on from this film’s release.
‘The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring’ is delightful. I never know what to expect from a film that goes on for nearly three hours, the pacing has to be near perfection for it to work – and boy does it here. The run time flew by, which is always a terrific sign.
I love a load of things about this, the one that actually sticks out most is the outstanding score. Music can play a huge part in how much I enjoy a film, so I’m delighted to say that the score is here is fantastic. That is by no means the only positive, obviously.
The cast are excellent. Elijah Wood gives a strong performance in the lead role. I’ve seen Wood in others things down the years and have actually found him a bit hit-and-miss, but here he is very good. Elsewhere, I really enjoyed watching Viggo Mortensen’s character.
Away from those two, there are a whole host of noteworthy cast members. Orlando Bloom, or Will Turner to me, is involved, as are the likes of Ian McKellen and Sean Bean. I also liked Liv Tyler in her role.
The look of the film is spectacular, and has aged extremely well even to this day. Everything from the cinematography to the costumes is brilliant, those two things really make the film come alive – helped by the aforementioned score, of course.
Very eager to check out the sequels, prequels and, eventually, the upcoming television series.
Embrace the magic
It is with no surprise that Peter Jackson’s The Fellowship of the Ring film has received such mixed critics. Many viewers refer to it as being childish, boring and uninteresting. Seems to me that it is bound to the same fate of Tolkien’s books, destined to be a target for the same type of misunderstandings that keep attacking this literary masterpiece many decades after it’s first publication.
Having read the books several years ago, I went to see this `impossible’ film when it came out with many doubts on my mind. I really liked it, but left the theater with as many doubts as I had before. Was it perfect? Well, maybe not, but what an achievement. After watching it a few times on DVD, and thinking about it for some time now, I find myself loving this film more and more. Let me tell you why…
The Lord of the Rings is a fairy-tale of myth and fantasy. Peter Jackson directed a film that was considered, for a very long time, impossible to make, and not only for technical reasons. The narrative roots are incredibly long and detailed, and the storyline is deeply connected with the creation of a fantastic continent from a time unknown called `Middle Earth’. It’s author, Tolkien, dedicated a considerable part of his life developing this continent’s background, it’s mythology and origins, it’s different kinds of people, cultures and languages, and therefore it’s geographic references are determinant to the unfolding of the story of the One Ring.
Peter Jackson went out to achieve the impossible and came out with a recreation of the original that is pure and true to the story in every detail. The first time the four hobbits meet a black rider on the road, for example, is absolutely faithful to the feeling of the book. The assault of the riders at Weathertop is another great example, and it captures that feeling of danger, density and atmosphere that are the main characteristics of the tale. Jackson also took some liberties with the story, and made some right choices along the way. If the so called `purists’ may not approve the removal of Tom Bombadil altogether, it should be comprehensible that the travel from Hobbiton to Rivendel is a very long and detailed one and could easily make a movie on it’s own. I felt more uneasy with how short the Council of Elrond was. In the book, the council is where the whole story of the rings is first explained, and many passages from the past ages of Middle Earth are unveiled. It is a fascinating moment of the story, that had to be shortened for obvious reasons. Still, after some consideration, I now agree with the options made by Peter Jackson, and think that the movie prologue narrated by Galadriel was the wisest choice. The magic is all there when Gandalf shuts his eyes the moment Frodo stands in the council and says `I will take the ring’. It is there at Moria’s Gate, and at the fall of Boromir. It is a powerful film that doesn’t fit the rhythm of the standard Hollywood action movie. It is a film that breeds, that takes time to unfold, it’s tale branching in every direction.
I could go on and on, talking about all the different elements that bring this film close to perfection, but I’ll end saying that deep down, this is not about action, beards and big monsters. The greatest thing about this film, to me, is that it brought me back to a time when I was in love with a different world where everything was possible. Reading The Lord of the Rings night after night, I came to understand what this thing of `mankind’ really was all about. The corruption of absolute power, the importance and value of friendship, the inevitability of growing up, the strength of hope… That this film could capture that magic, and be a new bearer to it’s message of humanism, is a statement to it’s greatness. Gandalf’s words, that even the smallest person may change the course of the world, and have a part to play in the destiny of all, are immortal.
In the end, this is a wonderful film, but that doesn’t mean you are going to like it. I cannot tell you what it is like to see this film if you don’t know or love the book. But I hope it may plant a seed on your heart to discover a great world of fantasy, beauty and humanity. I believe Tolkien would have liked that.
Don’t care what the Academy says, Best film of 2001 and best of many others.
LOTR is without a doubt, the best movie I’ve ever seen. I don’t care what the Academy says because without a doubt, it was the best film of 2001 (obviously… i said it was the best movie I’ve ever seen). It deserved the Academy Award 10 times more than A Beautiful Mind did. I mean look at the difference between ratings. LOTR: #3 ABM: #126 See a difference? LOTR will go on to be an unforgotten movie as what Star Wars is. In twenty years ABM won’t even be on the top 250 list, while LOTR will still be in the top 50. SO LOTR fans just remember. Academy doesn’t mean sh*t. Time says it all.
