The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)
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.
Fresh and Exciting
It was OK. I don't see why everyone loves it so much. It wasn't very smart or deep or well-directed.
Your blood may run cold, but you now find yourself pinioned to the story.
There are moments in this movie where the great movie it could've been peek out... They're fleeting, here, but they're worth savoring, and they happen often enough to make it worth your while.
Boy oh boy, what a mess.Visually, it's gorgeous, although by now of course the CGI that so impressed everyone has not aged well and Gollum looks really unconvincing.Story-wise, they have raped and confused Tolkien's masterpiece and taken liberties Tolkien himself would never have allowed for all the money they'd throw at him. The hubris of the lady who altered this script is unbelievable - Farimir's a bad guy, huh? Whatever you say, lady. Probably a movie was never going to truly capture the nuance of the books, but they didn't even come close here... the cartoon in the 70s did a better job for God's sake.This has been watered down appallingly for the cattle. As long as it looks and sounds like a good movie, the cattle are impressed, as usual. Good costumes and music, that's all the cattle need. And of course Bad Guys all being clearly and obviously 10000% bad, the good guys are clearly and obviously 10000% good... angel music when they are on screen to make it even plainer, and sinister music for the bad guys, it's a good substitute for character.Every line of dialogue must lack subtlety to keep the sheep impressed, so of course even Wormtongue holding a parchment and saying: "Theoden signed it this morning," yeah even this has to be The Most Dramatic Line Ever Said In a Movie!!!!! Cue the music which reminds the audience they're supposed to Feel Emotions at this moment.Oh my God how embarrassing to see those actors trying to keep a straight face while talking "elvish". Gimli's character is nothing but lame comic relief - he's short, get it? Ha, ha.This whole movie was an enormous, overly long cringe. And the cattle cued for miles to dump hundreds of millions in the pockets of those who did this. For shame.
Character development is phenomenal. Scenery and cinematic landscape unmatched. Helms Deep is heart pounding and breathtaking. Love this film!
Peter Jackson's amazing sequel it is an EPIC war drama film I love the Final Battle at Helm's Deep. Also the Treebeard .....With Merry and Pippin. The Battle of the Treebeard's army with Saruman's Uruk-hai ...... GREAT.....One!!!!!!
My God. I was shocked after watching this movie. I cannot even imagine someone can adapt the novel so well that you will become part of it . The greatest cinematic achievement ever.This is and will be the top No. 1 favorite movie of mine all time . I could proudly say, I lived in the time of the LOTR movie made. I lived to watch this Epic saga .
