Fifth about The Seventh

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring: film adaptations of stories from another media are tricky; by one hand, the story and characters are laid down already; by the other hand, they necessarily will clash with pre-existing mind’s eye images of the material. The task gets further complicated when the original material has the scope and following of Tolkien’s writing, and Peter Jackson’s choices will be different from most others’. Costume design, set decoration, make-up and visual effects are all up to that monumental task; the level of detail in all of them is incredible. The story (particularly in the extended cut) deals with a great amount of exposition; that’s how the story is laid down. It does, nevertheless, move along well, mixing well quiet moments between characters and action sequences; however, it needs to be mentioned that appreciation of the original material is a big part of the opinion.
