The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

Best Movie of the Year 2001

The Fellowship of the Ring is the first movie in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, based on the books by J.R.R. Tolkien. Directed by Peter Jackson. All three of these movies are without a doubt among the best movies ever made.

The hobbit Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood) inherits an ancient ring from his uncle Bilbo Baggins (Ian Holm). This turns out to be the One Ring. Hobbits are more resistant to the evil power of the Ring, but eventually anyone who owns the Ring will be corrupted.

The Ring was forged a long time ago by the Dark Lord Sauron in Mount Doom, in the land of Mordor. Lord Sauron and his allies are now searching for the Ring and anyone who has it is in great danger, and if Lord Sauron would get the Ring, the whole world would be in great danger. While Lord Sauron is getting stronger, so is the evil power of the Ring. The Ring wants to be found.

There is only one solution: The Ring must be destroyed. Frodo is chosen to do this and a fellowship is formed to help him. The Fellowship of the Ring consists of four hobbits: Frodo, Sam, Merry, Pippin; two human beings: Aragorn, Boromir; one elf: Legolas; one dwarf: Gimli; and the wizard Gandalf the Grey. Nine persons in total, to correspond to Sauron’s nine Ringwraiths.

Now a very dangerous journey to Sauron’s land Mordor begins, because only by the fires of Mount Doom the Ring can be destroyed.
