“The Lord of the Rings” film is actually considered one of the greatest works of the great J.R.R. Tolkien. It has been named as one of the greatest films in the history of cinema, and this is one of the reasons why the book of “The Lord of the Rings” was so popular among film buffs all over the world. However, it is just as important to note that the film version of “The Lord of the Rings” is not only a movie but an adaptation of the book as well.
The first book of the trilogy was published in 1954 and soon became a huge success after the release of the first film adaptation. The second book of the trilogy followed almost a year later, and two films were made to introduce the third and final book, “The Return of the King.” To make it even more interesting, several sequels were released in the future, including “The Two Towers,” “The Return of the King,” and “The Third Age.”
The story of “The Lord of the Rings” revolves around the three hobbits: Frodo Baggins, Samwise Gamgee, and Frodo’s friend and nephew Merry. These three friends are given the responsibility of retrieving the lost and mysterious Ring of Power that will lead to the salvation of the entire world. In this sense, the movie will tell a completely different story from the book, as the Lord of the Rings was created in order to explore the theme of morality and what it means to be a good person.
However, in order to give the full story of the film, the reader will have to watch the movie in a slightly different way. In the novel, Frodo and Bilbo Baggins would only try to gather clues and eventually put the pieces of the Ring together, but in the film, the entire plot of the book will be rewritten in order to satisfy the audience. But most of the people who read the book of “The Lord of the Rings” will still love it since they would be able to follow everything that has happened in the story.
One thing that most readers agree on is that the story of “The Lord of the Rings” should be adapted into a movie because it is a novel and not a short story. However, there are many critics who say that the book does not have enough plot for the film to be successful. According to them, the story of “The Lord of the Rings” is not developed enough, thus making it hard to tell and compare to the action-packed movie scenes in “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.”
But what makes the two film versions different from each other is the acting of both actors and actresses in the roles of Frodo’s friends. The latter two actors, Ian McKellen and Elijah Wood, were the most acclaimed actors for their role in “Lord of the Rings” series. But Ian McKellen is said to be the best actor for portraying Gandalf the Grey, while Elijah Wood is considered to be the best actor for portraying Legolas, and finally, Ian McKellen is considered to be the best actor for portraying Aragorn.
On the other hand, Michael Gambon took the role of Gandalf the Grey in the film version of “The Lord of the Rings” because he was the leading actor from the movies “Pete’s Dragon”Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.” He even wrote a number of his own books in the series and also did a couple of articles for “The New York Times.” Although he portrayed Gandalf the Grey in the film, he is still considered to be the best actor for portraying Gandalf in the book.
The Lord of the Rings trilogy is actually based on the same source material as the “Lord of the Rings” books by J.R.R. Tolkien. It is so popular among fans that it is one of the reasons why the movies of the trilogy have been so successful, despite being slightly different from the novels.
