PG-13 | | Adventure, Drama, Fantasy
A meek Hobbit from the Shire and eight companions set out on a journey to destroy the powerful One Ring and save Middle Earth from the Dark Lord Sauron.
In the book, it is Frodo who had been pilfering Farmer Maggot's crops, and he had stolen mushrooms from the farm, years prior, when he was only a child.
The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was is lost, for none now live who remember it. It began with the forging of the Great Rings. Three were given to the Elves, immortal, wisest...
The same ring that is the right size on the enormous Sauron also fits snugly on the tiny Frodo. The book explains that the ring can conform to fit its current master, and the movie shows it subtly shrinking or expanding.
Toward the end of the credits, there are some lines in Maori, thanking the people of New Zealand, where the movie was filmed.: He mihi nui hoki ki nga tangata whenua o Aotearoa. Ma rangi raua ko papa tatou e manaaki, e tiaki hei nga tau e tu mai nei.
