Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (DVD) (WS)
In the first part of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, a shy young hobbit named Frodo Baggins inherits a simple gold ring. He knows the ring has power, but not that he alone holds the secret to the survival--or enslavement--of the entire world. Now Frodo, accompanied by a wizard, an elf, a dwarf, two men and three loyal hobbit friends, must become the greatest hero the world has ever known to save the land and the people he loves.]]>
As the triumphant start of a trilogy, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring leaves you begging for more. By necessity, Peter Jackson's ambitious epic compresses J.R.R. Tolkien's classic The Lord of the Rings, but this robust adaptation maintains reverent allegiance to Tolkien's creation, instantly qualifying as one of the greatest fantasy films ever made. At 178 minutes, it's long enough to establish the myriad inhabitants of Middle-earth, the legendary Rings of Power, and the fellowship of hobbits, elves, dwarves, and humans--led by the wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and the brave hobbit Frodo (Elijah Wood)--who must battle terrifying forces of evil on their perilous journey to destroy the One Ring in the land of Mordor. Superbly paced, the film is both epic and intimate, offering astonishing special effects and production design while emphasizing the emotional intensity of Frodo's adventure. Ending on a perfect note of heroic loyalty and rich anticipation, this wondrous fantasy continues in The Two Towers (2002). --Jeff ShannonSee all Editorial Reviews

This movie was the worst. I love Harry Potter, Star Wars, etc. But this movie I just couldn't get into it. I bought the digital copy to watch while was flying to Seattle. Read morePublished 2 days ago by Kathy A

My son works at Best Buy. He says the blu-rays are Not the extended additions. I'm going to wait until the extended additions come out on blu-ray.

|When is Warner going to learn?||
I think they're just mixed up. Matrix sold well in single-disc release because the second and third in the series were terrible flicks -- I only bought the first on Blu-Ray. Having seen subpar sales on the LOTR trilogy, maybe they figure one at a time will get folks buying.
I concur with you... Read More

|Is this the extended edition?||
Doubt it because the runtime is not long enough to be the extended version. As far as I can tell you have to buy the blu-ray box set to get it.
