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.
Every actor in the film wore a wig apart from Billy Jackson, the director's (Peter Jackson) toddler son, seen listening wide-eyed to a tale told by Bilbo Baggins at his birthday party; he had perfect Hobbit hair.
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...
Near the end of the film, as Aragorn approaches Boromir, he steps around some orcs. One of the supposedly dead orcs sits up partly to look.
There are no opening credits after the title has been shown.
