Unlike most independent films I’ve seen, “Rise of the Fellowship” rises above the norm and above my own expectations. The acting and cinematography alone are of a much higher quality than a number of films I’ve seen lately, including those coming straight out of Hollywood. I was particularly impressed by Justin Moe (Randall) and Wolf J. Sherrill (Baba Melvin), the latter being my favourite character in the film.
While it pays many a tribute to J.R.R. Tolkien’s books and Peter Jackson’s films, “Rise of the Fellowship” is not simply a “Lord of the Rings” knock-off. It is a well-written, family-friendly comedy that will appeal to a variety of audiences and is a must-see for any fan of “The Lord of the Rings” and The Lord of the Rings Online.
“Rise of the Fellowship” is currently available for pre-order on Amazon and will be available at your local Wal-Mart, as well as iTunes and Video On Demand, on December 3.
