The Lord of the Rings is a movie that portrays high imagination of the twentieth century perception of the natural existence of evil and good and their manifest in the society. The author depicts an era where an individual has no power over evil and against fate irrespective of the place that one lives. The ring is portrayed to posses the power that influences or changes any person who handles it to become evil minded and carry out evil actions (Chance p. 1).
War between good and evil
This film is entirely revealing the struggle that exists between evil and good. The characters who take hold of the ring fight against evil such as Frodo but evil seeks to destroy them. There are antagonistic characters that represent good and evil such as Saruman and Gandalf as well as Sauron and Tom Bombadil. The film ends by depicting that evil has been defeated by good (Chance p. 3).
Lust for power
The ring represents power. Anyone that posses it gets corrupted due to its evil influence. It influenced Frodo, who had heroic characteristics to being evil minded. Many of the characters had a perception of changing the influence of the ring as they got into power. However, the ring changed them (Chance p. 12).
The film has political implications like the difficulty in coalition building among characters that even had good intentions. The lighting of the film displaying different situations and environments in conjunction with sounds of machetes and spirits makes it a moving one (Chance p. 23).
