After watching the second part of this film I wondered what the point was as none of the characters seemed to make any progress in their journey. Still this is a great film none the less.

Even better than the original.

Overall very enjoyable. But I got to say, there is a whole lot of downtime. And it's pretty dang boring.
March 4, 2017
One of the most epic and greatest movies in history.

Maybe the best of the three. The world of Lord of the Rings gets bigger and more dangerous. The expanded presence of Golem adds uniqueness that separates Lord of the Rings from other fantasy movies.

This ridiculously long and epic fim boasts even more grand action, revolutionary special effects and great acting, as well as more developed characters and emotion that you feel more easily.

Got to be one of the best films ever made, enjoy the character development from the first film as we follow Frodo Baggins further on his journey into Mordor to destroy the ring. Great depth and new challenges for the protagonist to face, including the reveal of a new powerful army in the Uruk Hai.

The introduction to new characters to the franchise is amazing, one of the main being the introduction to Gollum as a main character, great performance from Andy Serkis. Along with King Theoden, a man poisoned by Sauruman to puppeteer the kingdom of Rohan, this introduction raises the stakes of the battle for the ring and the fate of the character.

Not to mention the amazing Battle at Helms Deep which not only offers some of the greatest fights, but offers a light amount of comedy to go along with it coming from Legolas and Gimli, enjoyable from start to finish.

This movie is just like the first one but better.

In spite of Jackson dumbing down the plot of Tolkien's original to make it a more simplistic good vs. evil fight (e.g. removing the Dunlendings so that all the enemies would have no soul, making Sauruman an agent of Sauron rather than a man lusting after the one ring like everyone else, making Theoden possessed by Sauruman rather than just duped, adding elves in the final battle so that the men wouldn't have been abandoned by all the "good" groups to be killed by the orcs as they were in the book, making Smeagol and Gollum literally 2 different people in one body, and so on and so forth) this is an exceptionally exciting movie, and it contains some of the only long battle scenes that I can actually say I thoroughly enjoyed sitting through, including both Helm's Deep and Isenguard. Frodo's darkening personality as a result of the one ring is masterfully done. The one plot changed I liked was the Ents initially refusing to join the fight, as it allowed for a very powerful scene and made up for some of the loss in moral complexity.

Fantastic! These are spectacular
½ January 31, 2017
As well-made as the films that came before and after, featuring some of movie Middle-Earth's most impressive, chilling and memorable scenes - the encounter with the white wizard in the forest, the freeing of Theoden, the last march of the Ents, the Battle of Helm's Deep, and the reveal of the true depth's of Smeagol's madness. Nonetheless some of the quieter moments, which seemed so essential in the Fellowship, and some of the action struggle not the feel like filler as the trilogy awaits its conclusion.

Near perfect movie end with thrilling battle scene.

Amazing 2nd chapter and the Battle of Helms Deep is really mind blowing.

The Battle for Helms Deep remains one of the great fantasy battles ever seen on screen.

?The Lord Of The Rings: Two Towers is hoisted into prosperity and glory by the tailored hands of Peter Jackson; who oh soo diligently emend's his error's and inaccuracies regrettably made in the fellowship of the Ring. The preeminent science fiction film made it's debut on December 18th, 2002 and continued to be a close contender with Minority Report, along with Men in Black. The ensemble reunites once more with Viggo Mortensen; Orlando Bloom; John Rhys-davies; MckeMcKellen; Elijah Wood; Sean Astin; mordorBilly Boyd; and Dominic Monaghan who are left in the fate of Frodo Baggins vigilance throuMordor.
Two Towers Progresses the already established narrative of Frodo and Sam venturing on their perilous expedition to Mt.Doom to destroy and forsaken the Ring. Along with their journey, their are two other expeditions that are explored; fangornAragorn, Gimli, and Legolas scouring through the forFangorn in search for the orcs who have captured Pippin and Mary, as well as Mary and Pippin acquainting themselves with Treebeard; a fellow ent. For all that enchanting is not only seen throughout the main characters; but also visited within the supporting characters. Gollum, the race of the ents, and the kingdom of Rohan are testaments of Jackson's solicitude for Tolkien's masterful Folklore.
Where fellowship summons Emotional storytelling; Two Towers summons War, violence, and action to entice it's audience. Battling is a predominant aspect of science fiction, it's a facet where directors can really demonstrate their prowess through the staggering size and scopes of mise-en-scenes--which is the arrangement of everything that appears in the framing: actors, lighting, decor, props, scenery, and costumes. Jackson is no neophyte; furthermore, he makes no mistake of having incontestable fidelity for Tolkien's most paramount chapters. From Helm's deep to The Road to Isengard these are the sequences that undoubtedly pass the brink of being visually sensual.
In conclusion, Two Towers is an exemplary film with few rough edges from absent chapters; but this sequel still triumphs in a demonstration of Jackson's plenary indulgence within Tolkien's mythology.

The middle part is no less epic than the one before or after it.
December 17, 2016
Just as good as Fellowship, with increased scale and spectacular battle sequences.
