The Story: 10/10
The Lord of the Rings follows the adventures of Frodo (played to perfection by Elijah Wood), a hobbit from a town called the Shire, as he sets out to destroy an incredibly powerful ring that is filled with darkness before its original owner Sauron gets possession of it and brings total mayhem to the world. Frodo is accompanied by 8 people who are known as the fellowship of the ring which includes 3 more hobbits, an elf legolas (Orlando Bloom), a dwarf named Gimli, 2 warriors (Sean Bean and Viggo Mortensen) and finally our most beloved character of all, the powerful wizard GANDALF (played so wisely by Sir Ian McKellen).
It all sounds so simple, yet nothing is as it appears in this massive trilogy as it packs action, drama, romance, camaraderie, comedy, wars, suspense, politics, horror, thriller.etc. Director Peter Jackson simply presents a complete package that runs a almost 10 hours in length (Extended cut). This is a major accomplishment that in the hands of any other director would've felt flat. Yet, in Jackson's hands he truly brings this fantasy tale to life and you really do feel what characters feel.
I won't get in details of each part as it will contain spoilers but believe me this journey is well worth the time. Highly Recommended
Every single character in these 3 movies gets their 15 minutes. However there are some characters that truly manage to leave a lingering mark. Frodo (Elijah Wood) is the weakest in terms of physical features and he isn't the brightest either, yet he is entrusted of carrying this entire trilogy and he does a perfect job at it. He is the soul of this trilogy. You really feel his pain and you share his enthusiasm and cry when he cries. Yet his role would've been incomplete if it wasn't for his aid Samwise Gimji. Sam always brings the best in Frodo and it is such a hard task to keep him drifting to the dark side especially when they run into Gullom (the real reason you watch these movies) as he has a hidden agenda for helping the twosome. Every time Gullom says his magic words "My Precious" you know you are in for a treat and Gullom doesn't disappoint. As for the body of these movies, you get the fearless dormant king, Aragorn, he is the smartest and brightest of the bunch and his delivery is so awesome you really don't want to miss a single scene he is in. Finally the heart of the trilogy, Gandalf the wise, played by Sir Ian McKellen who really does this character justice. I can't imagine the trilogy without him, he is always there to provide wisdom and keep our characters in check during this journey. There are so many other characters that truly stand out but these 5 (Frodo, Sam, Gullom, Gandalf and Aragorn) are the reason for anyone to watch this major motion phenomena.

Extended versions of Peter Jackson's complete epic big screen adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy - filmed back-to-back and released over 3 consecutive years. In 'The Fellowship of the Ring' (2001) Frodo (Elijah Wood) is a hobbit living in the Shire, a quiet, peaceful part of Middle Earth. When it turns out that his elderly relative Bilbo (Ian Holm) is harbouring the ultimate Ring of Power and the evil Nazgul riders of Sauron are coming to find it, Frodo is entrusted by wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) to deliver the Ring out of the Shire without it falling into their hands. Frodo leaves the Shire aided by his cousins Merry (Dominic Monaghan), Pippin (Billy Boyd) and trusty friend Sam Gamgee (Sean Astin), but they soon realise that the agents of Mordor are everywhere and that their trip is far from over. Once they reach the Elvish realm of Rivendell the Hobbits form part of the anti-Sauron fellowship, which includes Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen), Boromir (Sean Bean), Legolas Greenleaf (Orlando Bloom), Gimli the dwarf and of course Gandalf. Together they must battle across Middle Earth to destroy the Ring by casting it into the Cracks of Doom, the fiery chasm in the centre of Mordor. In 'The Two Towers' (2002) the Fellowship of the Ring has now divided and Sam and Frodo are lost in the hills of Emyn Muil. They are also being followed by Gollum, a creature who promises to help them find the Mountain of Doom. Meanwhile Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli search for the hobbits Merry and Pippin in the Kingdom of Rohan, which is currently being attacked by Saruman's orc armies. Gandalf returns as Gandalf the White to remind Aragorn of his destiny to unite the people of Rohan with Gondor. Whilst the Fellowship are not travelling together they must unite against the powerful forces coming from the Two Towers: Orthanc Tower in Isengard where Saruman has bred a deadly army of 10,000, and Sauron's fortress at Barad-dûr. Finally, 'The Return of the King' (2003) won all 11 Academy Awards it was nominated for, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay. Gandalf manages to rally Gondor's fallen army with the help of King Theoden of Rohan for the biggest battle in the history of Middle-earth; and Aragorn finally faces up to his responsibilities. They are obviously out-numbered but are determined to keep Sauron distracted in order to enable Frodo to complete his quest to destroy the Ring by throwing it into the fires of the Mountain of Doom.
