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.
There are several close-ups of fingers toying with the Ring. While some have lovely cuticles and nails, some look quite ragged. The latter are Elijah Wood's hands. He has a habit of biting his nails.
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 Aragorn's pack bumps the camera, it's on his right shoulder, but in the next shot you see it's on the left.
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.
