Movie synopsis

Picking up where the first film left off, Peter Jackson's THE TWO TOWERS throws the remaining members of the Fellowship into the scattered chaos of Middle-earth, now fully under siege by the forces of Sauron. While Frodo (Elijah Wood) and Sam (Sean Astin) journey to the dreaded Mordor, Merry (Dominic Monaghan) and Pippin (Billy Boyd) are held captive by orcs, and Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen), Legolas (Orlando Bloom), and Gimli (John Rhys-Davies) search for their abducted companions. Soon Frodo and Sam are joined by the sulking and duplicitous Gollum (portrayed by the voice and motion-captured acting of Andy Serkis), who becomes their guide through the barren lands leading to Mount Doom. Meanwhile Merry and Pippin encounter the looming Treebeard (voiced by Rhys-Davies) and Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli find themselves in the land of Rohan, accompanied by an old friend. As the tale continues, each scenario becomes more perilous, and fierce battles erupt at both Isengard, home of the treacherous Saruman (Christopher Lee), and the massive Helm's Deep.After masterfully setting up the world created by J.R.R. Tolkien in THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING, Jackson continues the trilogy with the increasingly dark and battle-filled TWO TOWERS without skipping a beat. Although the director takes a few more liberties in adapting the second installment, he skillfully cuts from one scenario to the next, creating a tightly woven tapestry with the various storylines. Joining the impressive cast this time around are Miranda Otto as �owyn; Bernard Hill as her father, King Th�oden; Brad Dourif as the aptly named Grima Wormtongue; Karl Urban as �omer; David Wenham as Faramir; and Serkis under the remarkable CGI facade of Gollum. An intense epic that features one jaw-dropping sequence after another, THE TWO TOWERS more than carries its weight as the crucial centerpiece of THE LORD OF THE RINGS.

LotR: TRILOGY, A "Must-have" DVD COLLECTION!

Created: 13/10/06
Most of the movies that were adapted from novels nowadays do not really stay faithful to the book itself. Some even alter entire stories completely. It is not surprising when fans are utterly disappointed and walk out of theaters angry. And that’s the trend. No matter how big the budget is or how “cool” the digital effects are, it actually all boils down to the story. And that’s it.

However, once in a while, a great film based on a book comes out. This century, that film is J.R.R Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings”, the story that arguably started the fantasy myth of heroes, elves and other races. Directed by Peter Jackson, the film, hands down, has been very faithful to what LotR fans has come to love and cherish for several decades. Yet, on another perspective, people who know nothing about the book will be able to understand and appreciate the movie version. And when they read the books, like what most people do after watching film adaptations, they wouldn't be confused on the events that unfold. Instead, they would say, “Ah, I saw this part….”

On to the film proper, LotR started with Fellowship of the Ring; followed by The Two Towers and was ended by The Return of the King. The first movie, Fellowship of the Ring, introduces us to the characters and the story as a whole. The second one, The Two Towers, builds up tension of the story and gives the audience a clue on what can be expected on the next movie.

The last one, Return of the King, hits the climax of the story and gives audiences a breather during the ending. All throughout these three films, the cinematic's, digital effects and sounds are superb. Peter Jackson and the team did an excellent job of setting the right ambiance and mood. The characters each have their own shining moment in which the actors portrayed them excellently. Believe me, this is one movie you don't want to miss.

One of my All-Time favorite movie series

Created: 27/03/11
I have now found a new love for the Lord of the Rings movies. They are amazing works of art and the Two Towers in my opinion is the best of the trilogy. With intense action and a great story continuing where the Fellowship left off and leaving you at another cliffhanger, the Two Towers is everything you would expect and more. The visuals are impressive and the acting is spectacular. You don't want to miss the movie or this series for that matter

Lord of the Rings The Two Towers

Created: 22/10/05
What can I say other than, Bravo, Peter Jackson! The director of the LOR trilogy didn't miss a beat in the making of this film. It's grand battle sequences leave nothing to be desired (except that it would last forever) and neither does anything else in this film. It left me begging for more, which I got in the Extended Cut of this same movie. One of the best movies in recent years. If you have seen the fellowship and are wondering if the films get better as they go, don't wonder any longer, that is exactly what happens! Put a big check next to this one in your "Don't miss it" section. Thanks for reading. signed:CLW

A must to watch!!

Created: 03/02/09
We absolutely love the entire set of Lord of the Rings. My husband has watched them a thousand times. We never could find the second DVD at the stores so I told my hubby.....I'll get it on Ebay!! Sure enough, I got a great used one in excellent condition. My son is four years old and he has come to love Lord of the Rings too. He likes the action and it is safe for children to watch because there is no bad language nor graphic scenes. We will treasure LOTR for a long time and now we have the complete set. You should get them too. As a woman, I do not usually like this type of movies but it has a great story line.

A New Power Is Rising.

Created: 18/06/09
From the beginning to the very end, the Lord of the Rings trilogy is interesting and enjoyable. The books and the movies alike grasp one's attention as if they were real. You, the reader or viewer, can sense the pain of the characters, their emotions. The trilogy is truly powerful on screen. The second movie, however, I believe has something the first and third are missing; it feels like a bridge connecting two great islands. There is something unique about it that cannot easily be described. Metaphorically, the first movie is, say, a soldier. The third movie is the path home from war. And the second movie is the act of coming home because it contains the obstacles that must be passed through before achieving the goal. Although not 100% loyal to the written trilogy, the movies are done in such a way that the mainstream audience and LOTR fans from before the movies came out can say they were enjoyable and well made.
