The Patriot Resource - The Lord of the Rings

Peter Jackson's Film Adaptation of The Fellowship of the Ring:

The film opens with a prologue which shows the last battle that defeated Sauron and how Isildur had a chance to destory the One Ring, but refused Elrond's advice. He instead kept the Ring and was soon betrayed by it. Gollum finds the Ring and has possession of it for many years until Bilbo outwits him.

In Hobbiton of the The Shire, Bilbo Baggins is planning his birthday party. The wizard Gandalf comes for the party. After the party, he sneaks away to quietly leave The Shire. Gandalf meets him and pursuades him to leave behind his ring. His nephew, Frodo, arrives after he has left. Gandalf now leaves. A few months later, he returns and tests the ring. It is the One Ring of Sauron as he has feared. He advises Frodo to leave The Shire as soon as possible. Gandalf decides that Frodo's gardener, Sam, will go with Frodo after they catch him eavesdropping.

Gandalf leaves and soon after Frodo and Sam depart The Shire. As they make their way across The Shire, they have a couple of run-ins with Black Riders and are joined by Merry and Pippin. They barely escape the Black Riders at Buckleberry Ferry at the border of The Shire. They come to the Prancing Pony in Bree where Gandal said he would meet them. However, Gandalf is nowhere to be found. They instead encounter Strider, a Ranger who offers to be their guide. Strider leads them through Midgewater Marsh and the backcountry to Weathertop where Frodo is wounded by the Witchking..Soon after, they are found by Arwen, who quickly carries Frodo to Rivendell just ahead of the Black Riders.

At Rivendell, Frodo recovers from his wound under the care of Elrond. Frodo is then reunited with Bilbo. Elrond then calls a Council to discuss the Ring, which is attended by Frodo, Dwarves, Elves, Men and Gandalf. It is decided that the Ring must be taken to Mt. Doom in Mordor. After some arguing over who would take it, Frodo volunteers. Aragorn and Gandalf join him. Elrond then selects Gimli the Dwarf, Legolas the Elf and Boromir of Gondor. The other three Hobbits interrupt the Council and insist on going as well.

The Fellowship leaves Rivendell and heads south. They try to cross the Pass of Caradhras, but are turned back by weather sent by Saruman. Frodo chooses to go through Moria. Just outside of Moria, they are attacked by the Watcher in the Water. In Moria, they find the Dwarven colony has been wiped out. At Balin's Tomb, they are attacked by Orcs and a Cave Troll. Frodo is wounded, but survives. They then flee to the Bridge of Khazad-dûm where Gandalf faces a Balrog. They both fall and the rest of the Fellowship flees Moria.

The Fellowship comes with Lothlórien where they rest. Galadriel brings Frodo to the Mirror of Galadriel. He tempts her by offering her the Ring, but she turns him down. The Fellowship then leaves Lothlórien after Galadriel gives them each some gifts. They sail down the Great River to Amon Hen where they must choose to either go east toward Mordor or west to Gondor. Frodo slips away for some time to think, but Boromir follows him and being overcome by the Ring, tries to take it. Frodo flees and runs into Aragorn. Aragorn holds off the Uruk-hai while Frodo flees. At the boats, Sam insists on going with Frodo. Merry and Pippin are captured by the Uruk-hai after Boromir is mortally wounded. The film ends with Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas setting out to rescue Merry and Pippin.
