From Amazon.co.uk

This six-disc box set contains the three theatrical-release versions of The Lord of the Rings trilogy--that is, the films as they were originally seen in cinemas. The individual titles are all also available as separate two-disc sets: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King.

Product Description

Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 or region free DVD player in order to play.

 

Includes:

  • The Fellowship Of The Ring
  • The Two Towers
  • The Return Of The King

 

Finally, for the first time, all three original theatrical versions of The Lord Of The Rings come alive in high definition Blu-ray! See the epic trilogy the way it was meant to be seen with the complete box set containing The Fellowship Of The Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return Of The King!

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.

 

The Lord Of The Rings - The Fellowship Of The Ring: In a time before history, in a place called Middle-earth, a dark and powerful lord has brought together the forces of evil to destroy its cultures and enslave all life caught in his path. Sauron's time has come and he needs only one small object - a Ring that has been lost for centuries - to snuff o

This interpretation of Tolkein's books is superb.
Having read The Lord of the Rings Trilogy several times over quite a number of years, I was more than delighted when this DVD box set became available. My young daughter, in her innocence, bought me the set from a 'lookee, lookee' man on the beach front whilst on holiday in Spain. The original English dialogue was muted and there were subtitles in English and Chinese. The sound was woolly, the translation was excruciating and bore no resemblance to the original.

So when this DVD Box Set came to my attention I purchased it immediately and have not regretted it.
The computer graphics are, with no pun intended, out of this world. The sound quality was excellent and the sound effects and graphics all draw the viewer into the story, so that young or old, all become totally absorbed.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this DVD to everyone, except the very young who may be of a nervous disposition, where a little parental guidance may be necessary.

Overall: Absolutely brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still one of the greatest love stories ever told 28 Jan 2013

DVD Boxed Set Jan-2013

The reviews seem to have becomes jumbled between DVD's and Blu_Rays.

This presentation of the standard "seen in the cinema" LOTR is most enjoyable. You can spend twice the price and see a bit more for the "directors cut". If you have the money then I guess that's a good investment.

This "cinema" release is visually excellent, sounds great and remains totally enjoyable. It's not the book. It's not the epic. It's still wonderful :) Hope you buy a copy - any copy - and enjoy it :) CW.

I could watch this over and over again. In fact, I have, and every time I see something that I haven't seen before. Perhaps the best of this genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite the whole journey 27 Mar 2004
By Touring Mars VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
As if owning these films separately is not pleasure enough, now the whole trilogy is available for a bargain price in one concise box-set. Between them, these films were nominated for an unprecedented 30 Oscars, and won 17 in total, 11 of them for the 'Return of the King' alone. A trilogy unlike any other, effectively 'The Lord Of The Rings' is just one very long film, 9 hours and 18 minutes to be exact. But of course, even that is not the WHOLE story. Missing from this Theatrical Version box-set is, of course, an almost unbelievable 2 hours and 3 minutes of extended scenes. Where this box-set represents a decent saving on the originals, the Extended Version box-set will be an even better bargain, hence why I would recommend holding on another few months for it, rather than rushing out to buy this.
Even the 'couch-potato advantage' of having the whole movies on a single DVD each doesn't really apply anymore, since you will have to get up and change the discs anyway, if (like many thousands no doubt will) you intend watching them back to back. There is, however, a more subtle advantage in owning the theatrical versions over the extended versions, in that if you intend to watch the whole lot in one day, you might just be able to do it, whereas at a mind-boggling 11 hours and 21 minutes, the entire extended trilogy may result in SSAS (Severely Sore Arse Syndrome) or even deep-vein thrombosis.
Peter Jackson has created the must-have movie trilogy of all-time, and from beginning to end, the journey is as fascinating as was originally penned by J.R.R. Tolkein himself. A triumph of a trilogy, but if like me you enjoyed every minute of it, you will surely want to own every minute of it too.

4.0 out of 5 stars LOTR - theatrical release 21 Jan 2005
Format:DVD
Brilliant value super 6-disc films BUT if you really like the books-the films (even without Tom Bombadil-Scouring of the Shire etc)it's definitely worth buying the extended 12-disc version.
