The Lord of the Rings – The Fellowship of the Ring
The “Special Extended DVD Edition” is contained in a four-disc set with
two discs containing the film, and two discs with more than six hours of added
content, produced specifically for the DVD. These extras will plunge the viewer
into the complex landscape of Middle-earth, and reveal how Peter Jackson and his
team of skilled artists and technicians created a painstakingly beautiful and
faithful re-creation of Tolkien's world.
Based on J.R.R. Tolkien's masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings: The
Fellowship of the Ring is an epic adventure of good against evil, the power of
friendship and individual courage. The saga centers around an unassuming Hobbit
named Frodo Baggins who inherits a Ring that would give a dark and powerful lord
the power to enslave the world. With a loyal fellowship of elves, dwarves, men
and a wizard, Frodo embarks on a heroic quest to destroy the One Ring and pave
the way for the emergence of mankind.
- " Jackson is working from obvious passion; he knows the most special of
effects are expected of him but deploys his technology smartly. " –
- " Most ambitiously, this rousing adventure closes with an ending
that's closer in spirit to an art-house film than a popcorn holiday romp.
" – Xan Brooks
- " An enthusiastic visionary set loose on one of the biggest playgrounds
ever constructed, Jackson brings more personality to the series' first
installment, The Fellowship Of The Ring, than typically seeps into a franchise
of this magnitude. " – Scott Tobias
