The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
Directed by Peter Jackson

Review by Alfta Svanni Lothursdottir

      It is almost 2am and I have just returned from seeing Peter Jackson's 'The Lord of the Rings.' Since the story is known by most of the English speaking world and probably a good portion of the rest as well, I won't go into the plot elements. I could say that if Ian McKellan, who played Gandalf, would have squinted one eye, he would have been the perfect image of Othinn. I could tell you that the special effects were amazing. I could say that the panoramic scenes were, in a word, BIG. I could mention how the film deals beautifully with the themes of friendship, honor, bravery, betrayal and greed. I could say that even though I was tired, the film was three hours long and it didn't finish until 1am in the morning, I sat wide eyed during the whole thing. I could tell you how the battle scenes were heart-pounding. I could rave about how absolutely beautiful the film was whether it was depicting the hills of the Shire or the underground halls of Moria. I could tell you how the Ring Wraiths literally oozed evil. I could go on for some number of pages telling you how great this movie is but none of it would really do it justice. So instead, I will say just this. GO SEE IT!
