The final scene is actually taken from the first chapter of the second volume, The Two Towers. The screenplay was written by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens and Peter Jackson.

Synopsis

Sauron, the dark lord, has awakened and threatens to conquer Middle-earth. To stop this ancient evil once and for all, Frodo Baggins must destroy the One Ring in the fires of Mount Doom. Men, Hobbits, a Wizard, an Elf and a Dwarf form a fellowship to help him on his quest. The main part of this article relates to the last versions of Middle-earths history, and as such may controvert parts of The Silmarillion. ... A map of the Northwestern part of Middle-earth at the end of the Third Age, courtesy of the Encyclopedia of Arda. ... The One Ring, also known as the Ruling Ring or Ring of Power, is an artifact from J. R. R. Tolkiens fictional Middle-earth universe. ... In J. R. R. Tolkiens fictional universe of Middle-earth, Mount Doom, or Orodruin, is a volcano in Mordor where the One Ring was forged in the Crack of Doom, a fiery chasm within the mountain. ... This is one fans idea of a typical Hobbit. ... In the fiction of J. R. R. Tolkien, the Wizards of Middle-earth are a small group of beings outwardly resembling Men but possessing much greater physical and mental power. ... The Elves (always pluralized as such, never Elfs) are one of the races that appear in the work of J. R. R. Tolkien. ... The Dwarves of J. R. R. Tolkiens fictional universe of Middle-earth are beings of short stature, often friendly with Hobbits although long suspicious of Elves. ...


Special effects

The Fellowship of the Ring makes extensive use of digital, practical and makeup special effects throughout. One noticeable effect that appears in almost every scene involves setting a proper scale so that the characters are all the proper height. Elijah Wood, who plays Frodo, is 5 ft 6 in (1.68 m) tall in real life; but the character of Frodo Baggins is barely four feet tall. Many simple tricks were used to cast the hobbits (and Gimli the Dwarf) as diminutive. Stunt doubles were used in certain scenes, while entire duplicates of certain sets (especially Bag End in Hobbiton) were built at two different scales, so that the characters would appear to be the appropriate size. At one point in the film Frodo runs along a corridor in Bag End, followed by Gandalf. Elijah Wood and Ian McKellen were filmed in separate versions of the same corridor, built at two different scales, and a fast camera pan conceals the edit between the two. Forced perspective was also employed, so that it would look as though the short hobbits were interacting with taller Men and Elves. Special effects (abbreviated SPFX or SFX) are used in the film, television, and entertainment industry to create effects that cannot be achieved by normal means, such as depicting travel to other star systems. ... Forced perspective is a filmmaking technique to make larger objects appear smaller to the viewer or vice versa, depending on their relationship to the camera and each other. ...


For the battle between the Last Alliance and the forces of Sauron that begins the film, an elaborate CGI animation system, called MASSIVE, was developed that would allow thousands of individual animated "characters" in the program to act differently. This helped give the illusion of realism to the battle sequences. The seawater creature in The Abyss marked CGIs acceptance in the visual effects industry. ... A battle simulated using Massive. ...

Deviations from the source material

A small but vocal minority of admirers of the original book raised some concerns when the film was released, complaining that the movie's screenplay made a number of changes to Tolkien's story. Many of these protests seemed to be rather minor concerns and were largely ignored by general movie going audiences. However, more than a few people expressed surprise when the movie's plot diverged from that of the book in what might be considered more fundamental ways.

  • The Hobbits' adventures on the way from the Shire to Bree, which occupy over five chapters of the novel, were drastically cut, implying that the journey took place over a much shorter period of time. This material includes the Hobbits' interaction with Tom Bombadil, who is completely absent from the film.
  • Arwen Evenstar has a far greater role; and her replacement of the character of Glorfindel from the novel raised the ire of many dedicated Tolkien fans.
  • In the film, Sam Gamgee is treated as an adult at Bilbo Baggins' farewell party; in the books, he was only 21 (still 12 years from his coming of age). Perhaps more significantly, Frodo appears much younger.

Some fans also felt that movie producers missed the linguistic basis of the work (as Tolkien invented the world to bring his languages alive and not the other way around): Tom Bombadil (also Iarwain Ben-adar in Sindarin) is a fictional character of Middle-earth, created by J. R. R. Tolkien. ... Old Man Willow is a character in The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien. ... In J. R. R. Tolkiens Middle-earth, Fangorn forest is the habitat of the Ents. ... The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers is a film released on Wednesday, December 18, 2002, directed by Peter Jackson with a runtime of 179 minutes (2 hours, 59 minutes). ... This article is about the fictional character. ... In the fiction of J. R. R. Tolkien, Glorfindel is an Elf, a character that appears on a couple of occasions in the tales of Middle-earth. ... Samwise Gamgee (T.A. 2983-F.A. 62; S.R. 1383-1482), a fictional character featured in J. R. R. Tolkiens fantasy world Middle-earth, is Frodo Baggins servant who proves to be the most loyal of the Fellowship of the Ring. ... Ian Holm as Bilbo Baggins, drawn by Bente Schlick Bilbo Baggins is the central character of J. R. R. Tolkiens novel The Hobbit, and a minor character in its sequels, The Lord of the Rings series. ...

  • In particular, Namárië, Galadriel's lament in Lórien that begins "Ai! laurië lantar lassi súrinen", did not appear in the film, although Tolkien considered it one of the highest points of The Fellowship of the Ring. A few lines of the poem do, however, make it into the soundtrack at the departure from Lórien.

Other fans explain that, compared to the many film adaptations of literary works over the years, many of which bear little or no resemblance to the source material, this film and the remainder of the trilogy are still very faithful adaptations, with some changes necessary due to the differing limitations of film. In J.R.R. Tolkiens fictional universe of Middle-earth, two places are known as Lórien, both exceptionally beautiful. ...


Other changes were received very positively, particularly the expansion of the characterization of Boromir and the inclusion on-screen of his final stand at Amon Hen, something which happened 'off-screen' at the beginning of The Two Towers. This is usually credited to Sean Bean's exceptional performance in the role. Boromir in the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy, played by Sean Bean Boromir (T.A. 2978-3019), a fictional character from J. R. R. Tolkiens fantasy universe of Middle-earth, was the eldest son of Denethor, last ruling Steward of Gondor in the Third Age of Middle-earth. ... Sean Bean Shaun Mark Bean (born April 17, 1959) is a British actor from Sheffield, Yorkshire. ...


Tengwar

The movie features numerous books and artifacts with Tengwar inscriptions. Even though they were scrupulously researched for accuracy, they still show a couple of peculiarities and inconsistencies not found in Tolkien's own tengwar samples.


Another idiosyncrasy of the films is that the Hobbits are shown writing the sign for Bilbo's Birthday banner in the Latin alphabet, while the books state that the Hobbits used the Tengwar. However, the Latin calligraphy is written in such a way that it bears resemblance to the Tengwar, including tehtar above their corresponding vowels, and was likely for the audience's benefit to immediately recognise it. Hobbits are a race from J. R. R. Tolkiens Middle-earth universe which first appears in the book The Hobbit. ... The Latin alphabet, also called the Roman alphabet, is the most widely used alphabetic writing system in the world. ...
