The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
This is where it all began and turned 'The Lord of the Rings' into a cult franchise. The first installment of the trilogy brings the story of Frodo Baggins (a meek hobbit)and his journey to station the One Ring to its ultimate destination-- Mount Doom. But the route is not easy. Some elves, wizards, dwarves, and monsters bombard Frodo and his eight companions with situations they've never faced before. As the species test Frodo and his companions, they show remarkable enthusiasm and courage, and that's the highlight. A part of Modor, Mount Doomis the only place where the existence of the Ring of Power can come to an end,and Middle-Earth can be saved from The Dark Lord Sauron's wrath. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring sets the premise for Tolkien's trilogy. The film stars Elijah Wood, Orlando Bloom, Ian McKellen, Liv Tyler, ViggoMortensen, Sean Bean, and Cate Blanchett in pivotal roles.
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)
The adventurous journey to destroy the One Ring in Mount Doom continues, but is bifurcated into three parts. Frodo and Sam move towards Mount Doom to end the One Ring, where they're joined by the ring's former keeper, Gollum (Andy Serkis). On the other hand, Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli bump into Gandalf, and they together fight Sauron's evil at the battle of Helm's Deep. Merry and Pippin, escape from the orcs, come across Treebeard, and plot an attack on the fortress of Saruman, Isengard. The three intense story lines created an adrenaline rush among fans and kept them on the edge of their seats.
The Lord of the Rings:The Return of the King (2003)
The last in the LOTR capper, fantasy enthusiasts admire The Return of the King like no other project. Filled with unmatched action, drama, battles, and scenic views, the third installment of the LOTR trilogy left everyone in a tizzy. It sees Gandalf, Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli keeping their best foot forward to fight the dangerous battle against the Dark Lord Sauron and his forces in a final attempt. All this is only done to give Frodo and Sam to complete their mission. Will Frodo be successful or will Sauron overpower him, is a hair-raiser. Toutedto be the best in fantasy history, it is loved by critics and fans alike.
