who needs books?By stephen decantelupe from boston , 13 Dec 2003
[Highly rated reviewer]i never did get to read the second book of this trilogy and after seeing this i was certain i had missed out.
the battle sequences are just jaw dropping and massive is not a big enough word to describe these visual delights.but its not just the action and SFX that make this a supurb achievement.We all thought that Jackson may have had a fluke on the first one.how wrong we were.
the largely untested main characters again deliver superior performances and make us feel like we should be there suffering with them.
possibly a little too much camera panning for visual landscape effects but it is a pretty country after all.
extremely violent for its 12 rating (my daughter found it quite cringy at times) and very long,almost three hours, its a marathon of a film.
Can't wait for return of the king!

Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008Having watched the theatrical version, I can see that the extended is more rOunded, more satisfying. This is the original story as intended and seems complete. It's strange how one can pick out the bits that have been added (subtracted) to the theatrical in spite of having watched it over a year ago - one's brain remembers more than consciously it thinks. It's the same story and still very watchable. Well worth hiring or buying.
The Lord Of The Rings - The Two TowersBy mdridley (104 reviews) from Catterick, United Kingdom , 13 Dec 2007
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideJackson progresses the story masterfully and assuredly as the quest to destroy the one ring continues. A fantastic screenplay with a myriad of iconic moments, The Two Towers is comparable to The Empire Strikes Back in the sense that it is the darkest of the three films. Gollum and Treebeard are an acquired taste, but each inventive and evidently groundbreaking as entirely CG characters. Elijah Wood is perfect as Frodo Baggins, Ian McKellan is transcendent as Gandalf, and Cate Blanchett is flawlessly cast. The potency of the performances is what gives the film its force. It never solely relies upon special effects. Helm's Deep stands out as one of the most sophisticated, awe inspiring battle sequences I've ever seen and the continuation of Gandalf's duel with the fiery Balrog is breathtaking.
