The Lord of the Rings:The Fellowship of the Ring revolves around the character Frodo Baggins who lives in a peaceful village known as ' The Shire', he is close friends with the wizard Gandalf,who knows Frodo's uncle, Bilbo Baggins.


As there is a party held for Biblo Baggins 111th birthday in the Shire, Bilbo attends and retells his story of adventure to the Shire folk , where he gives a speech to the villagers and ends up disappearing. Frodo manages to go to Bilbo's house , where he meets Gandalf who gives him priority of the Ring, and tells him to keep it safe and in the future dispose of it in Mordor. The Ring is seen to be extremely powerful and must not be in the hands of evil, as it once used to be.Gandalf orders Frodo to go away from the Shire to Bree with Sam and escape the attention of evil. The Lord of the Rings is fixated on Frodo who has to destroy the ring, as it could lead to catastrophy and destruction of Middle Earth. The film shows how he avoids evil and is aided by the Fellowship; Aragon, Boromir, Gandalf, Gimli, Legolas, Pippin ,Merry and Sam Gamgee who vow to protect Frodo and help dispose of the ring. They come across evil in all forms including the Balrog, the orcs; who are servants of the Dark Lord Sauron who aims to get the ring, in order to retain his power in physical form.


After Gandalf is taken by the Balrog, the fellowship head to Parth Galen, where they are ambushed by orcs and have to stave off the enemies who want the ring. After much fighting, the
Fellowship are seperated, as the orcs take Merry and Pippin who distract the other orcs, resulting in Frodo escaping with Sam. Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli go to Boromir who is injured after being shot with an arrow whilst attemting to save Merry and Pippin. The film results in the each of the Fellowship's quest to help destroy the evil forces and the ring in their sepearte ways. Unlike other films, there is still evil present and still not defeated, as evil is fighting its way back and there still is a power struggle.
