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.
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...
To narrow a gap for leaping, Aragorn and Frodo direct a giant teetering column by leaning their bodies. Even by the interesting physics of Middle Earth it is patently impossible for just two people - let alone a man and a hobbit - to quickly shift a rock mass of thousands of tons by mere leaning, especially one already tipping the other way. One might suppose that Gandalf lent a helpful push with his wizardry, but there is no hint of such.
After the end credits, the DVD and Blu Ray editions of the extended cut feature a list of "Lord of the Rings fan-club members" who contributed financially to the project in exchange for a credit. This additional credit sequence lasts 20 minutes.
