Review from a previous sceptic......By a customer from Bath , 19 Jun 2009I was very sceptical when i set out watching this trilogy what with any stories of middle earth,orcs,wizards etc etc not really interesting me.
I first watched the fellowship (a must if your going to watch the 2nd in line) and found it thoroughly enjoyable and enough to continue my interest into the two towers.
Wow where i felt the first film was very good it felt (absolutely understandably) like a introduction to everything that follows. But that stops with the 2nd its completely enthralling and it throws you right into the fight for middle earth with no real reflection on the first film.
So all in all this review is for anyone who is/was like me, never really interested,hadnt read the books and unsure what they would get out of this film. And in my opinion watch and enjoy the first of the trilogy then brace yourself for the 2nd.
One of the best!By poshtot (16 reviews) from Orpington , 19 Mar 2009Ok it is a bit long you need to keep pausing to top up drinks and pop to the loo But it is well worth watching i was totally spellbound by the whole fantasy
epicBy a customer from Greenford , 22 Feb 2009it is claimed to be an epic and it is certainly long enough.But you never really notice how long you are there for as the story keeps you glued to the set.A good film with not too gruesome scenes but you can see why it is rated as it is.

Another modern Wonder of the World !By JohnnyX (100 reviews) from Bristol , 20 Sep 2008Having marvelled at the first film, I really wondered how Peter Jackson and his team would handle the more difficult settings, such as Mordor and Helm's Deep, the more difficult characters such as the Ents, the Nasgul, and the extremely diificult Gollum, and also how he would depict the battle of Helm's Deep.
Well, all of these things, featured in the second film,exceeded my expectations. The Ents were very well done, the Nasgul are very scary, the depiction of Helm's Deep and the battle which takes place here are exceptional, and the animation of Gollum is brilliant.
This film does not trample upon one's imagination, but, rather, it enhances it, by supplying realistic images of things which can only be 'half imagined' when one reads the books. This is because Tolkein gives a rather free range to one's imagination by giving only the barest of descriptions of the settings and the beings of which he recounts.
The story is again very true to the original, and if anything it gets over the epic nature of the story to an even greater extent.
Also, if anything, it is even better than the first film, due to the expansion and development of the plot, the appearance of Gollum, and the terrific battle scenes at the end of the film. It is also rather more moving, in parts, than the first film, as the grand, historic nature of the story becomes more apparent.
Another excellent and brilliant film.
