Review
What can I say? The Fellowship of the Ring is all right if you like that kind of Sword and Sorcery thing? Small, cute whee people being chased hither and thither by all kinds of monstrous beasties. Acts of courage and heroism that would have comic book superheroes running for the hills (not that they'd be safe there....oh no!). Peter Jackson's film adaptation of Tolkien's epic trilogy of good versus evil in a fantastical world long past, is just about as spot on as you can imagine it was possible to be. Inspired casting, amazing special effects, stunning scenery and characters that genuinely live and breathe in a story that has retained its essence. It really is impossible to find fault with a film of a book that many thought an impossible task. Jackson has now confirmed himself a genius and this movie will go down as one of the most entertaining slices of escapism in celluloid history. Sit back and be blown away.....again (for many of you I suspect).
