Fellowship of the ring is the first installment of the Lord of the rings trilogy. It doesn’t really good job of laying the foundation of the story, but the movie does leave out a lot of information that is in the book that could be useful to the movie watcher. The movie does though do a good job of telling how the ring was found and how the fellowship was put together. This being extended cut it has extra information that makes the story even better and I like how unlike nowadays this is a long movie instead of breaking it up into two movies. I don’t believe movie should be broken up into two parts the only reason they do that is to bring in more money. Probably the best thing about this movie is the special-effects were way ahead of its time and it really get you to connect with the characters so by the end you are attached to the story. I would give this movie and 8 out of 10 stars.
