King film!

I wish they had stayed true to the book and finished the Hobbits homecoming where the fallen wizard sought revenge by trying to destroy their homeland. The movie caused me to read the "Hobbit" which I am eternally grateful. I loved the movie, bought it and the books and watch and read it several times as well as the Simirillian which is the beginning of "Middle Earth". I

One of the best, most amazing movies of all time, rivaled only by the other movies in the trilogy!!! The dialogue is brilliant, the plot awesome (obviously, since it is based on the book), the special effects breathtaking, and the characters amazing (Aragorn!!) This is a must see for all scifi or fantasy fans or anyone just looking for an awesome movie!!!

The playful spookiness of Mr. Jackson's direction provides a lively, light touch, a gesture that doesn't normally come to mind when Tolkien's name is mentioned. Full Review

Rings has moments of edge-of-the-seat excitement, too, such as when the dark riders come looking for Frodo. But it's occasionally tedious when it should be captivating. Full Review

Fashioned by a buff, The Lord of the Rings is a banquet for the buff in us all. I left exhausted, happy, intoxicated. Full Review

Not since the original ''Star Wars'' trilogy has film dipped into myth and emerged with the kind of weight and heft seen in Peter Jackson's first installment of J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy. Full Review
