I loved it! I would have loved it even more if they'd put in a few extra things, like Tom Bombadil - I was looking forward to Old Man Willow and the Barrow-Wights; and I wanted Frodo to be a little more aggressive and confident. He seemed a little too passive to me, and we didn't get to see enough of how strong and resilient Hobbits are supposed to be. But the characterizations were fabulous and the costumes wonderful. I loved Elrond and the misty, remote views of Rivendell. The Black Riders were everything I hoped they'd be. Of course, I bought the Extended DVD!

Lord of the Rings is by far the best movie I have ever seen or will probably ever see. It is one of the few movies based on a book that stays fairly close to the original storyline. True there are some things that are taken out, like Tom Bombadil, but he was not directly related to the destruction of the One Ring. This movie, even though I knew what happened, kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end, something that for me rarely ever happens. I do recommend however that you watch the movies in order. Many people that I have talked to found the movie boring because they had no idea what was going on from watching just the second movie. And as I said before, this is the best movie I have ever seen.

Lord of the Rings was visually exciting, for the most part. It did need a few cuts at various points, however, I would have gladly watched the movie for another half hour or two, if they concluded it better. I know the movie ended like the book, but this is a movie. I want to see it, be done with it, and then think about what happened in the story--not what's going to happen in the sequel.
