The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers Reviews
Boasting a well-written script, finely tuned CGI, and powerful performances including Andy Serkis as the tortured Gollum, The Two Towers continues the "Rings" series in suitably epic fashion.
All 3 are epic tales of high caliber, refreshing and revolutionary in every aspect of the word.
Extraordinary from start to finish, it doesnt leave you bored for a single second throughout the whole ±12 hour run time (Yes, you have to watch all 3 in a row, with all 3 being the extended cut. Yes, that's how i did it, and it was the greatest movie experience i've ever had, it's mindblowing), which is a difficult task, but it succeeds. Big time.
The Lord of the Rings trilogy is a revolutionary masterwork.
This film delivers and not only respects most of the source material, but is successful at unfolding a complex story arc in a believable and digestible manner for mass consumption audiences. Kudos to Peter Jackson for pulling this off given the herculean task of tackling this high fantasy epic of literature.
As a devoted reader of the Tolkein books, I was completely satisfied with this portrayal on film.
