This is probably my favorite Lord of the Rings movie. Gotta love Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli!

An improvement over the first film purely because we get see Middle-Earth be expanded upon with new characters and additional world building while also improving upon the action with an epic battle at Helm's Deep. The production, the score, the script, the direction and the cinematography are all kept to a high standard and quite frankly it only suffers from what the first film did in terms of being open ended coupled with a lackluster ending.

By far my favorite of the trilogy, the battle of helms deep is by far the greatest movie battle put to screen in my opinion, a must see

The two towers is a spectacular movie, with amazing action sequences and very emotional moments, that leaves you amazed with its own epicness.

Terrible. Boring. Ridiculous long. The only thing good about it was cut direction. Who wants to watch 3 1/2 hrs of a hero who's most heroic action is running away?

A fantastic second installment to the incredible Lord of the Rings trilogy. This movie improves on nearly everything from its fantastic predecessor. The character depth is improved, the cinematography is wonderful, and the action is some of the best in the series. Two Towers is a fantasy epic that continues the near perfect trilogy.

Billions of budgets for a film full of racist allusions: blonde elves with blue eyes like Nazis are presented as a "superior race" to the the hai urucs, "resulting from the crossbreeding", all the "races" with quality are Genetically programmed without faults ... Did Hitler himself write this scenario? This film is a Nazi propaganda work (see the book of Isabelle Smadja which proved it in black and white).

An excellent adaptation that tells the story in a masterful way and improves both the tempo and the already spectacular visual and special effects

Very good. Go watch it if your were on the fence like me. An epic battle that cannot be beat!

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.

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.
½ February 26, 2017
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.

Two towers was a huge improvement.

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.
