The lords of Elves, Dwarves, and Men were given Rings of Power. Little do they know that the Dark Lord Sauron has forged the One Ring in Mount Doom, infusing it with his power, as well as controlling the other Rings. He was defeated by Prince Isildur of Gondor and his finger where he wore the One Ring becomes severed. Lost for 2,500 years before being found and kept for five centuries by Gollum, it eventually becomes inherited by a hobbit by the name of Frodo Baggins when his uncle, Bilbo, gifts it to him. Because of the dangers of the One Ring, Frodo, accompanied by fellow hobbits Merry and Pippin, Legolas, Gimli, Boromir, and Aragorn, travel to Mordor in order to destroy the Ring in the Crack of Doom.

movie facts

Those who wield the Ring of Power are able to control the other Rings of Power and dominate the will of its bearer. Mortals who wore the Ring can become invisible. It is also able to extend the life of whoever wields it. It cannot protect its wearer from harm, however, with its previous owners like Gollum, who perished in the Crack of Doom, and even its original creator Sauron, who suffered the death of his physical body.
