This is a very fun, gamer inspired movie.

The story revolves around a group of four gamers (three guys, one gal) as they attempt to achieve social recognition.

Things start poorly for the group. Even the owner of the "Game Parlor" sides with the "jocks" and invites the quarterback from the local football team to represent the Game Parlor in the on-line Lord of the Rings tourney. The quarterback knows that the hero of the tale could have led the gamer team to victory over the football squad. So, the football captain "helps" ensure that our fearless geek leader is expelled.

The gamers strike back and get some help from an unexpected quarter.

Mayhem and a happy ending ensue.

Don't take this movie too seriously. If you do, you are missing the point.

The synopsis of this movie doesn't do it justice at all. This isn't just a ripoff Fellowship of the Ring movie, it's a heartfelt, comedic tale of a bunch of regular nerds who go on a modern day journey akin to the hobbits in the Lord of the Rings. Movie and book references galore, as well as some actual Lord of the Rings online game play scenes. Give it a watch, it's not bad!

There are indie movies that wish they were amazing, then there are indie movies that ARE amazing. This film is certainly of the latter camp!

"Rise of the Fellowship" is not only a love letter to the famous Lord of the Rings franchise, but also a cleverly-charismatic buddy movie. The film follows four lovable gaming geeks on their quest to a Lord of the Rings Online competition, chronicling their adventures from "borrowing" the military academy's car to playing paintball in a hippie compound, all the while paralleling the scenes we remember and love from the Peter Jackson trilogy!

The film's writing is carefully crafted in a positive way, and makes "Rise of the Fellowship" a movie the whole family can enjoy. The performances by the cast are genuine and organic, a characteristic rarely seen in independent film. Another element in which many independent films tend to fail, and this one doesn't, is in the realm of effects; "Rise of the Fellowship" does not make the mistake of trying to be bigger than it is - instead, it showcases good costuming and makeup but does not try to overdo itself in the effects department. Lead composer Dale Clay conceives a score worthy of the film's A-list counterparts, taking after the style of Howard Shore without mimicking the cues from the Jackson movies.

All in all, this film is not 100% perfect, but it's as close to complete perfection than most independent films come. Ron Newcomb and Scott Matthias have a gem for a first film, and I look forward to the many films to come from Opening Act in the future!

You think Indie film and you think creative...and you would be right in this case.

Rise of the Fellowship is excellent re-imagining of the Fellowship of the Ring, set in today's world.

It is a heart felt film about a trio + one coming together for a common cause; to right a wrong.

The storytelling is first rate, and this is the main reason we watch movies, to be enthralled, to be entertained.

This is definitely a family film, but first and foremost it is a very good film.

Short version: this movie rocks.

I'm a Lord of the Rings fan--both Tolkien's literary masterwork and Peter Jackson's cinematic adaptation (which I rambled on about just a few posts ago)--as well as a fan of fantasy and sci-fi in general and an independent filmmaker myself....but generally not a fan of parodies or spoof-style movies, so I had some initial hesitation about what to expect from this film. However, I was delighted to find that Rise of the Fellowship is something distinct and entirely its own, which, truly, is its biggest strength. While it *does* pay very respectable homage to Tolkien (with, for example, the inclusion of the Tom Bombadil-esque character Baba Melvin) and, too, to Jackson's cinematic style, the story is solid and accessible to moviegoers outside the fan bases onto whom the film would otherwise seem to be focused. It's a real thrill to any audience member; one who is a part of the fantasy and/or gaming communities or not. That is, at least to me, one of the biggest difficulties in any adaptive-film project and this film absolutely succeeds with it. As an audience member, it made my experience of the film more enjoyable than I could have predicted.

My other personal favorite aspects of the film are the pacing and tone; the comedy and seriousness are perfectly balanced and the nerd-factor is never overdone. These gamers, as the film's heroes and main characters, aren't exaggeratedly dorky or comedic, but neither are they excessively solemn or glorified. It's inspirational, but light. It's serious, but also fun. The cast is excellent, the cinematography and production design are gorgeous and the musical score is beautiful.

So, to sum up: I'll recommend this film to anyone who'll listen. Check it out!

I hated this movie in the first 10 minutes, but it really grew on me. It's not the weird delusion flick it seems to be; it's dumb in a lot of parts, but it's ok. Don't expect much, but it's got moments that are clever. The biggest selling point just might be that it's a semi-professional movie from amateurs. Very local to VA ( I grew up in Virginia and it's a good snap-shot of what role-playing and gaming were like [at least for me in the 90's - World's Best Comics and Games in Newport News, VA was mecca to young and old RPG nerds]), the people and the setting. The good-guy crew is a little silly, but I have to admit they have their own charm. The inclusion of a cool "gamer-chick," and the idea of being able to have a part-time job at an actual RPG store (not comics and Magic the Gathering with 10 random 5th Ed. AD&D books) are more than a little far-fetched, but it's nice to see it work out. It's a nice little adventure that makes no sense in parts, but doesn't take itself seriously.
