5 out of 5 rating. 2 Reviews
It's so nice to see a film that lives up to its hype -- as epic and impressive as the book upon which it is based. The daunting task of putting J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy classic on film was taken up with great enthusiasm and talent by Kiwi filmmaker Peter Jackson, and the result is magnificent.

The challenge was to impress the heck out of devotees of the books without leaving non-readers scratching their heads and Jackson has done just that, with help from a monumentally talented crew of artistic directors, costume designers and technicians and a wonderfully-chosen cast. Elijah Wood is brave and tortured as Frodo Baggins and the other hobbits -- especially the pitch-perfect Sam (Sean Astin) -- are marvelous. Viggo Mortensen is beguiling as Strider/Aragorn, Orlando Bloom is both luminous and steely as the elf prince Legolas, and Sean Bean is brilliant as the shady Boromir. Sir Ian McKellen deserves special notice (like, say, an Oscar nomination) for his turn as the wizard Gandalf and even Liv Tyler, whom we expected to resent, plays the Elvish princess Arwen with grace and skill.

The New Zealand locations are magical, from the rolling green hills of the Shire to the dreamy refuge of Rivendell to the ethereal forests of Lothlorien. The myth was brought to life in every way and good on Jackson for being brave and smart enough to complete all three films at once, preserving the artistic integrity of the project and the strength of the wonderful performances. The investment in time and money will, no doubt, be richly rewarded.
