Three incredible films. One collection to rule them all!
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
Based on J.R.R. Tolkien's masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring is an epic adventure of good against evil, the power of friendship and individual courage. The saga centers around an unassuming Hobbit named Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood) who inherits a Ring that would give a dark and powerful lord the power to enslave the world. With a loyal fellowship of elves, dwarves, men and a wizard, Frodo embarks on a heroic quest to destroy the One Ring and pave the way for the emergence of mankind.
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
Frodo Baggins and the Fellowship continue their quest to destroy the One Ring and stand against the evil of the Dark Lord Sauron. The Fellowship has divided and now find themselves taking different paths to defeating Sauron and his allies. Their destinies now lie at two towers - Orthanc Tower in Isengard, where the corrupted wizard Saruman (Christopher Lee) waits, and Sauron's fortress at Barad-dur, deep within the dark lands of Mordor.
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
The final battle for Middle-earth begins as Frodo and Sam (Sean Astin), led by Gollum (Andy Serkis), continue their dangerous mission toward the fires of Mount Doom in order to destroy the One Ring. Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen) struggles to fulfill his legacy as he leads his outnumbered followers against the growing power of the Dark Lord Sauron, so that the Ring-bearer Frodo may complete his quest. Based on J.R.R. Tolkien's epic adventure of good versus evil, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King is the ultimate achievement by director Peter Jackson in his acclaimed film trilogy, winning a record-equalling 11 Academy Awards, including Best Picture.
'Against all odds in an era of machine-made spectaculars, Mr. Jackson and his collaborators have created a film epic that lives and breathes, that's swept by almost palpable weather (much of it stormy).' - Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
'I have no serious criticisms. The film does full justice to Tolkien, who has often - and erroneously - been accused of escapism.' - Christopher Tookey, Daily Mail
'It's a delightful gift to the world.' - Emily Blunt, Blunt Review
'If you're not already on board, you scrabble around as best you can, and this means hard work, which is something rare - and yes, exhilarating - in a modern blockbuster.' - Sandra Hall, Sydney Morning Herald
'The sense of closure is exquisite, but I'm not sure I'm able to forgive Peter Jackson for the three years that he has taken to put it on the screen. The wait has been excruciating.' - James Christopher, The Times
'There's a reason these are instant classics: good core story+skillful execution+ the sense of cohesion between the 3 chapters = satsfying movies.' - Karina Montgomery, Cinerine
