5.0 out of 5 stars a definite must to tolkien fans, 4 Sep 2002
By 
This book is an excellent guide to fans and would-be fans of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. It gives the reader an insiders tour and behind the scenes details in making of this epic masterpiece. The journey from the book to movie is an incredilbe one.
Peter Jackson is a real Tolkien Fan. He gave his best effort to make the dream of fellow Tolkien fans come true, seeing their beloved books transformed into an epic film. In reading this book, you could see how perfectly the actors where cast in their respective characters. It also featured the views of the actors regarding the characters that they played and of the movie itself. You would come to appreciate the tremendous efforts made by the production staff in making middle earth come alive before our very eyes. The pictures of sets, casts, and locations, are fantastic. It's a definite must for all Tolkien Fans' collection.

This review is from: The Lord of the Rings Official Movie Guide (Limited Edition) (Hardcover)
Amazing photos! a real feast to look at... and some great infomation too. If this book is anything to go by the film should be fantastic. From what I can see Peter Jackson has caught the essence of what Tolkein was all about... buy it now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Colourful, but not really in-depth, 7 Dec 2001
This book is a nice teaser for the upcoming blockbuster "Fellowship of the ring", but to call it a movie guide... that I find somewhat too much to say.
Sure, there a are some great photographs and interesting looks behind the scenes, but the stories about the people behind the movie remain rather superficial. For example, only the main characters are quoted, but their date of birth, for example, isn't even included. And of the hundreds of people behind the scenes, only four or five are really brought into the spotlight.
I suspect that there will be a much more comprehensive movie guide when all three films of the trilogy have been released, say in the spring of 2004.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantasic, 23 Dec 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Lord of the Rings Official Movie Guide (Limited Edition) (Hardcover)
This book gives you a clear view on how the cast coped with the pressure of the three films that were for the first time in film history filmed back to back. It also tells you about the actors who played each of the characters for example Elijah Wood who plays Frodo Baggins an adventurous hobbit. This book also talks about how the sets and the costumes were made. Overall this book is definatly a top read if you love the film.
