The Lord of the Rings Trilogy tells the story of Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood), a hobbit who battles against the Dark Lord Sauron to save his world, Middle-earth, from the grip of evil. In the films, Frodo and his fellowship of friends and allies embark on a desperate journey to rid Middle-earth of the source of Sauron's greatest strength, the One Ring - a ring that has the power to enslave the inhabitants of Middle-earth. The trilogy tells tales of extraordinary adventures across the treacherous landscape of Middle-earth and reveals how the power of friendship, love and courage can hold the forces of darkness at bay. Beside Wood, the films star Ian McKellen, Liv Tyler, Viggo Mortensen, Sean Astin, Cate Blanchett, John Rhys-Davies, Billy Boyd, Dominic Monaghan, Orlando Bloom, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, featuring Sean Bean, and Ian Holm, with Andy Serkis as Gollum. The films also star Marton Csokas, Craig Parker and Lawrence Makaoare.
In this first part of the Trilogy, the young hobbit Frodo Baggins inherits a ring; but this ring is no mere trinket. It is the One Ring, an instrument of absolute power that could allow Sauron, the dark Lord of Mordor, to rule Middle-earth and enslave its peoples. Frodo, together with a Fellowship that includes his loyal hobbit friends, humans, a wizard, a dwarf and an elf, must take the One Ring across Middle-earth to Mount Doom, where it first was forged, and destroy it forever. Such a journey means venturing deep into territory manned by Sauron, where he is amassing his army of Orcs. And it is not only external evils that the Fellowship must combat, but also internal dissension and the corrupting influence of the One Ring itself. The course of future history is entwined with the fate of the Fellowship. The film won four Oscars for Best Visual Effects, Cinematography, Makeup and Original Score.

The Lord of the Rings Box Set is a great Blu-ray box set at a really good price. All three movies came in separate plastic boxes for safe keeping. The trilogy allows you to watch the movies one after another, with great picture and sound quality. Even though these movies are now getting a bit old, as collectable classics they are well worth the money.
This is such an awesome deal, could not go past is once i saw how cheap it was. For such a cheap price you get this awesome box set in amazing quality, video and audio are outstanding! Also shipping was excellent, very quick for such a big journey to Australia! This is a must buy!
Forget about the studio's attempt at cashing in on these great films with Directors Cuts and Extended Theatrical Versions. This Lord of the Rings boxset includes all the original and best versions. If they were meant to be anything but these versions originally Peter Jackson would have edited to match. Don't get suckered in. Theres still three discs of extras to watch if you're into that stuff, one for each film.
The Lord of the Rings trilogy is one of the greatest sets of trilogies out there to own, right next to Back to the Future and Star Wars 4-6. However, to buy the trilogy on Blu-ray with special features and documentaries spread over 3 discs and to pay so little for it is a miracle.
Lord of the Rings is one of the greatest movie trilogies of all time. C. Nolan and his Batman are up there with great costumes and beautiful settings. I just wanted to say that other than the big screen itself with a giant bag of popcorn, blu-ray is the only other way to see these absolute classics!
I had watched all the 3 movies before and the firms themselves have been reviewed several times over by people who are more eloquent than I could hope to be. this purchase was to add the movies to my collection. Suffices to say that I loved these movies and the deal from Zavvi just made it unmissable.
Lord of the Rings Box Set is great! I watched the first 2 with my eight-year-old son and he loved them. If you like the Lord of the Rings then it is a must to have them on blu-ray for that extra definition. Also, at this price it would be rude not to buy them. 100% recommend to anyone.
This, despite what a lot of people say, is actually the version of the Lord of the Rings trilogy to buy. The quality of visuals and sound of the Bluray is excellent. There is no need to change the disk to watch the second half. This is the version you saw in the cinema. Speaking as someone who owns both the extended and regular versions - the original versions of the films are much superior. There is a reason so much was cut out - the extra minutes make them worse films. Perhaps to someone who has read the books - they might appreciate the longer versions. But as for an evenings entertainment the original versions are much more enjoyable (and shorter). Also the price is much better as well. Save your money and your time - buy this version!!
I haven't actually watched these yet but i'm very pleased with how they look. Each Bluray comes in it's own case, with both discs inside. So it's 3 Bluray cases inside a box. The Bluray cover on the box was literally stuck on by a tiny spot of something, so my boyfriend wiggled it off and it looks much better now. Very attractive box. So glad i brought these finally. Especially for £13.95 - bargain!
