Assisted by a Fellowship of heroes, Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood) plunges into a perilous trek to take the mystical One Ring to Mount Doom so that it and its magical powers can be destroyed and never possessed by evil Lord Sauron (Sala Baker).
The astonishing journey of Frodo Baggins begins. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring is an excellent film that everyone can appreciate and enjoy, also the non-fantasy fans like me.
The film is beautiful from every point of view. The narrative is surprisingly long - in a good way - and incredibly detailed, and the storyline is great. Its long running time - 172 minutes, and it's not even the extended version - is not boring at all. The scenography is outstanding, partly because New Zealand is photographed like some kind of magic place, but also for the high attention to details.
The acting is pretty much good. Ian McKellen's portrayal of Gandalf is magnificent.
Sam: I made a promise, Mr Frodo. A promise. "Don't you leave him Samwise Gamgee." And I don't mean to. I don't mean to.
Gandalf: A wizard is never late, Frodo Baggins. Nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to.
