THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FEL­LOW­SHIP OF THE RING

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

From the open­ing scenes that mas­ter­fully de­tail the back story of J. R. R. Tolkien’s tale, to the seam­lessly in­te­grated spe­cial ef­fects, di­rec­tor Peter Jack­son presents a pow­er­ful tale that never lets up on its fre­netic pace. Man­ag­ing to keep the heart of the novel, with only mi­nor tai­lor­ing to trim the mam­moth de­tail, Jack­son presents a mar­vel­lous re­al­i­sa­tion of myth­i­cal Mid­dleearth. How­ever, the real tri­umph lies in the cast­ing: Eli­jah Wood is a rev­e­la­tion as the re­luc­tant hero, hob­bit Frodo. Also stars Or­lando Bloom ( pic­tured).
