The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

In The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring film we see a magnificent portrayal of J.R.R. Tolkien's first book of what came to be known as The Lord of the Rings Trilogy; which is a series of three books The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King. This movie was first released in 2001 and was filmed in in the far wide green plains and the snowy mountains of New Zealand. The main characters are: Sauron, Saruman the White (Sauron's new ally), Gandalf the Grey, Frodo Baggins, Bilbo Baggins (Frodo's uncle), Samwise gamgee, Meriadoc Brandybuck AKA Merry, Preregin Took AKA Pippin, Aragorn son of Arathorn (Isildur's heir), Legolas of the woodland realms, Gimli son of Gloin, Boromir of Gondor, Elrond of Rivendell and Arwen daughter of Elrond.

This fantasy film takes place in the imaginary realm of Middle-earth which is consisted of cities, plains, rivers, mountains, towns, ruins and forests. the first few scenes explain in the past ages the founding of the One Ring which is done by the main protagonist The Dark Lord Sauron from the fires of Mount Doom. This One Ring which is also called: The Ring, The One, The Precious, The Master-Ring, The Ring of Power and The Ring of Sauron; is used in the past to control the leaders of the races of Middle-earth from Dwarfs, Men and Elves until Sauron brought them to their doom. The Ring was not only formed from the fires of Mount Doom, Sauron also poured his "cruelty, his malice and his will to dominate all life" so the power of the Dark Lord is tied to the Ring. Sauron while using his armies from his land of Mordor was about the conqueror all life but an alliance of Men and Elves battled and defeated the Dark Lord's armies, the son of the king of men Isildur cut the hand of Sauron and took the Ring and there their victory was complete but instead of destroying the Ring in the fires of Mount Doom Isildur decided to keep it; for men are easily
