Abstract: In analyzing film or movie, the focus is usually placed on the characters, the most important aspect who builds the story. Characters play very important role because they are the center of the whole story. However, the objects or equipment that they use can also build the figure of the character and play important role in the story. In the trilogy movie of "The Lord of The Rings" directed by Peter Jackson, each main character has their own special weapons that they use or carry along the story. This paper is a brief discussion of some important weapons that have their own meaning and function. The writer will narrow down the analysis for two weapons only: ring and swords. Using semiotic study, this discussion will focus more on analyzing the symbol of those weapons which contain important meaning than the merely image that the audiences watch on the screen. The interpretation will be emphasized on some meanings of the ring and sword as weapons in the story connected to symbol meaning in the era of middle age.
