Following such a successful film as its predecessor was never going to be an easy task for this film. Only it didn't just meet the expectation of that fans it went further than them. What can only be described as a compelling, exciting and overall phenomenal second instalment must be seen by film fans. This film is even more action packed than the first with big battle scenes such as Helm's Deep yet it still maintains lighthearted moments between the characters even in the darkest of times. It will leave you wanting more.

The middle part is no less epic than the one before or after it.

The Two Towers builds tension more fluidly and is even grander in spectacle. It is also the entry into the trilogy that makes it unmistakably clear you'll have to look elsewhere than just the films in order to make sense of important plot points.

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers continues what made The Fellowship of the Ring so great, and does not disappoint. Just like the first film, a masterpiece.

If not more awe-inspiring than the superb original, LOTR: The Two Towers unashamedly uses its classic source material to excellent effect; combining jaw-dropping, large action set pieces, with depth to characters. JRR Tolkien's novel is literally brought to life onscreen and producing one one of the best middle chapters in movie history.
Verdict: A+

I was surprised how a 4 hour long movie could keep me thoroughly entertained. Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli showed great bonding and friendship and the humor between the latter two was also great. It was good to see the past romance between Aragorn and Arwen but not too memorable. Arwen did make a stunningly beautiful elf princess. Frodo and Sam were both much braver and even Merry and Pippin stopped being losers and that was quite refreshing to see. Treebeard was a great addition and I am surprised to know the voiceovers of both Gimli and Treebeard was done by the same actor. I would have loved to lie in Treebeard's branches and fall asleep listening to one of his stories. Theoden was impressive and the shifts in his personality interesting. This was a far more enjoyable movie than the first one.

The middle chapter of a trilogy can sometimes be the one that drags. It's not the fresh beginning and it's not the epic end. But as with Star Wars, the middle chapter of this trilogy is a masterpiece of cinema. The performances are both astounding and heart wrenching, with Bernard Hill as the noble King Theoden and Ian McKellan as the ever wonderful Gandalf as stand outs. The set pieces are wonderful and the special effects still stand up 13 years later. And the movie is all finished up with one of the greatest cinema battles ever put to film. Watch it now, and enjoy.

It's easily the slowest moving of the trilogy, and coincidentally the weakest, but the Two Towers has many redeeming factors as well, such as the amazing craft of Peter Jackson constantly on display.

Oh my god. This movie is so good. The movies has the same elements that make the dark knight great. Awesome characters, breathtaking battles and Aragorn is a badass. The best of all of the middle earth movies. Just awesome in the best way.

While not better than the first one, this one did not feel lengthy or boring at any point.

Definitely recommend watching the Extended Edition since it adds a lot of interesting scenes. This movie is a masterpiece and leaves audiences wanting to see the final movie in this trilogy.

Featuring a breath-taking battle sequence at Helm's Deep, The Two Towers is a fantastic second chapter to Frodo's journey in Middle Earth.
