From the beginning of the movie you are hooked into the characters and the story. The movie takes a little time to explain the back story, the important of the ring and the overall world we are living in. Once you learn about the story between the good v evil, you are instantly on board with our main characters, as they go on this journey and meet up eventually creating the “fellowship of the ring” involving our 4 hobbits: Frodo, Sam, Merry, Poppins, the dwarf Gimli, the Elf Legolas, the wizard Gandalf, and the two men Aragon and Boromir. Each member of the group have sworn to protect Frodo who is carries the ring on the journey not letting the evil who seeks the ring come into contact with it. There are so many obstacles are hero’s go on in their journey, from fighting goblins and orcs in major battles to also fighting their own temptations and inner conflicts which want them to get the ring for themselves. There is so many great messages in the movie with size doesn’t matter in terms of importance and success in life. As well as good v evil and putting others before yourself. The score in this movie is fantastic and every time I hear the songs it reminds me of the movie instantly. My favourite scene was when Boromir thought off those orcs to protect Merry, and Poppins as he was getting shot with the arrows, his loyalty and bravery was a typical Sean Bean moment. Another stand out moment was Aragon’s slicing of the Orcs head, voiced brilliantly by Viggo Mortensen. Another great iconic moment was Gandalf’s “you shall not pass” by Sir Ian Murray McKellen.
Overall I’d rate this movie a 5/5 ⭐️ it’s the perfect character building first movie in a trilogy, sets up the story nicely, there’s good emotion and comedy when needed, and the action/fight scenes are riveting. I’d recommend this to anyone who hasn’t seen it before.
Coming soon🔜Lord of the rings, the twin towers.
