 THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING
Fellowship is a perfect blend of action and fantasy, of special effects and thoughtful storytelling, and, in a time when the two seem anything but mutually exclusive, blockbuster juggernaut and arthouse darling.
Fellowship starts with a brief yet breakneck explanation of the origin of the ring that weaves its way through the three Tolkien novels.
The ring changed hands a couple of times, ultimately being discovered by Bilbo Baggins (the hero of my long-playing record), a hobbit who held on to it for 60 years without realizing what he had.

But "Fellowship" is a film that comes after "Gladiator" and "Matrix," and it instinctively ramps up to the genre of the overwrought special-effects action picture.
Sometimes they must fight to defend themselves or to keep possession of the ring, but mostly the trilogy is an unfolding, a quest, a journey, told in an elevated, archaic, romantic prose style that tests our capacity for the declarative voice.

 Frank's Reel Movie Reviews - Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring
Fellowship of the Ring will probably be a bit too violent for most women, hence the low Julia Roberts factor, but it receives the maximum score in the macho factor due to the violence, fighting and cool weapons.
I would give The Fellowship of the Ring a maximum score in the Reel Rating category if not for the selfish fact that the subject matter of Swords and Sorcery is not necessarily my cup of tea.
Fellowship of the Rings really excels in its DVD composition with 2 discs that include many special features and "making of" featurettes.

 The Lord of the Rings:
The Fellowship of the Ring
It's helpful to think of the three-hour epic The Fellowship of the Ring as the first act of a three-act play which includes the films The Two Towers and The Return of the King.
The fellowship is made up of Frodo, Gandalf, Sam, Pippin, Merry, Aragorn (revealed to be heir to the throne of Gondor), Boromir (a warrior of Gondor), Gimli (a burly dwarf) and Legolas (an archer elf).
After three hours of thrills, chills and impressive visual effects, the fellowship is broken, and these characters chart separate courses in the protection of all that is good.

Jackson and his team achieve this level of credibility in part by not approaching their subject as “fantasy.” Like Tolkien's books, Jackson's The Fellowship of the Ring has the weight of epic historical drama; one takes it more seriously than Braveheart or Gladiator.
Tolkien described The Lord of the Rings as “a fundamentally religious and Catholic work.” By this he meant not that Catholic faith or teachings were explicitly incorporated into the fabric of Middle-earth, but rather that the imagery and themes were shaped by his sensibilities and beliefs as a Roman Catholic.
