Frodo and Sam are trekking to Mordor to destroy the One Ring of Power while Gimli, Legolas and Aragorn search for the orc-captured Merry and Pippin. All along, nefarious wizard Saruman awaits the Fellowship members at the Orthanc Tower in Isengard.
Every story usually consists of three acts; the first is where you introduce your tale & its characters, the second is the middle part where the majority of the plot surfaces & character development takes place, and the third & final act is where you tie up all the loose ends to bring your entire narrative to a satisfying conclusion. Almost everyone has a definite idea of how to begin & end their stories but the middle act is always the hardest part. Because no matter how great the other two acts are, if this part isn't handled correctly, then the overall experience will ultimately amount to almost nothing in the end.
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers is that middle act…
Did someone turn off the light?
Because it just got real dark up in here.
In all seriousness, The Two Towers isn't the cheery and delectable piece of adventure that The Fellowship of the Ring was. However, that doesn't mean that it isn't as satisfying. The danger is higher, the scope is wider, and the characters are in one helluva situation.
Basically, this reminds me of the Empire Strikes Back. It's darker, deeper, and full of choices that will reverberate throughout Middle Earth. However, that doesn't mean that it's necessarily better than its predecessor. The first film feels like an adventure, while the second feels like a challenge.
And it all leads up to Helm's Deep. A grand and absolutely…
Picking up right where the first one left off, this sequel goes even deeper into Tolkien lore, and doesn’t hold back. All of our beloved hobbits and elves and humans, broken up into three groups, encounter all sorts of creatures and villains as they reach closer to their main goal to rid the one ring that will rule them all.
Among the most memorable new additions of the series is Gollum, a CGI-created creature battling a severe case of schizophrenia. At turns hilarious and pitiful, Gollum is a terrific character, pivotal to the film’s structure and central to the struggling loyalty between the friendship of a weary Frodo and a suspicious Sam. King Theoden, Grimy Wormtongue, and Treebeard are also…
The Lord of the Rings trilogy is probably my second favorite of all time behind the original trip to a galaxy far, far away, and each year I revisit all three films over a short span of time. As the desire to do so came bubbling to the surface recently with the release of the final Hobbit film due out, something strange occurred to me regarded the timing of my yearly Frodo journey. For some reason I seem to always do so around this time of the year, when the temperatures dip below freezing outside, and I have never really considered why that is.
A part of me wondered if it is merely a coincidence, that due to the daunting…
This is a review of the extended edition of the film.
The most difficult part of any story, or a series of films that tell one story, is the middle. The beginning sets up the conflict, the end resolves the conflict, but the middle...what does the middle do? Stuff happens, sure...but what? Why? How? When? Where? Who?
Thankfully, Jackson and company dealt with this all-too-common dilemma with the deft ease and perfection as they had when dealing with every other aspect of this story. I have not read the books (though I do own them and will be diving in soon enough), but the word on the street is The Two Towers was the biggest departure from the source material.…
An unrivaled masterpiece of fantasy filmmaking, Peter Jackson's "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" not only betters its excellent predecessor, but it expands the possibilities of its genre. It is an outstanding achievement that thrusts its audience headlong into a continuing adventure, introduces remarkable new characters, and cements Jackson's reputation as a visionary with the talent to bring to life J.R.R. Tolkien's already reputable vision.
"The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" begins with a brief flashback, developing a mystery from "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring." Jackson's script, however, quickly launches into the continuing adventure of Tolkien's brave heroes. Without the need to introduce it characters, peoples, and lands, the narrative, even…
El camino del portador continúa por la Tierra Media en su búsqueda de encontrar el Monte del Destino. En el trascurso de este largo viaje, también veremos a Aragorn y compañía repartiendo justicia; y a Merry y Pippin con los ents que buscan venganza. Todo esto narrado por las majestuosas imágenes de Nueva Zelanda, que muestran más que explican ciertas ideas, como los niños en la Guerra o la deforestación. El ritmo de la película, con todo es un conjunto de situaciones algo aburridas al principio que va in crescendo hasta lograr un equilibrio en el último tercio, unidas a su muestra de calidad técnica. Además, de una fotografía que de hecho es bastante buena pero abusa de un sombreado del color que empaña el conjunto.
Con todo, estamos ante una muy buena adaptación de "Las Dos Torres" de Tolkien, que se posiciona como la "más irregular" de la trilogía de Peter Jackson.
a spinoff movie called legolly blonde focusing on how legolas grooms his hair and what products he uses
The weakest film in the trilogy but makes up for it with all the amazing action, acting and CGI
"Frodo wouldn't have gotten far without Sam."
Extended Edition- I prefer the theatrical cut but I think the additional scenes in Two Towers serve more of a purpose opposed to the ones in Fellowship of the Ring. All of it is world building but the characters introduced in Two Towers benefit from the additional footage. Still though, three hours is enough.
It was raining outside during the battle for Helms Deep. The immersion was off the charts.
Weakest of the trilogy? Yes, because weak still means perfection.

The Two Towers (2002)
"What are we holding onto, Sam?"
"That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo... and it's worth fighting for"
I'll admit I was excited to watch this one today but now I'm nervous and just praying it will be as good if not better than Fellowship, well guess I'm gonna have to find out.
While Frodo (Elijah Wood) and Sam (Sean Astin) edge closer to Mordor with the help of the shifty Gollum (Andy Serkis), the divided fellowship makes a stand against Sauron's new ally, Saruman, and his hordes of Isengard.
This movie works for two reasons one Peter Jackson and his crew who made Fellowship also…
This exciting second installment in The lord of the rings trilogy, continues Frodo's (Elijah Wood) quest to the fires of Mount Doom. Here Frodo and Sam (Sean Astin) discover they are being pursued by Gollum who wants to get his hands on the "precious" ring. Meanwhile Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen) and Legolas (Orlando Bloom) come by the Rohan kingdom, where trouble has come upon the great King. Director Peter Jackson continues to impress with stunning visuals, brilliantly executed action and battle sequences, and a cast who give it there all.
Therebis good in this world and it's worth fight for it
