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.
Security was tight on the set: at least 3 people were arrested for attempted break-ins.
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...
When Orcs attack the fellowship in the Chamber of Mazarbul (the crypt in Moria), Frodo's sword glows blue, but Gandalf's does not. Gandalf carries Glamdring, the Foe-Hammer, which was forged by Turgon the elf and therefore should glow as Sting does.
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.
