The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002) Review

After the breaking of the Fellowship, all the members have gone their way, but their goal remains the same though their ways are different. Without a hitch, this chapter kicked off right where the original left off. Consistency is the name of this game.

Frodo and Sam have gone their way and run into the ring’s former keeper Gollum. This little guy was once a happy hobbit not that different from Frodo and Sam until the ring changed him and drove him into madness. Merry and Pippin were taken away by the Uruk-Hai and Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli are in search of them. Many new characters are brought out such as King Theoden of Rohan and Grima the Wormtounge. Gandalf returns but not as you would expect him. Saruman has sent his army to Rohan after the king was released from his spell. The kingdom flees to the Fort known as Helm’s Deep. This has to be one of the greatest battle scenes of all time. Merry and Pippin join the great tree beard of the Ents (these giant walking talking trees) to head back to the Shire. Tree beard sees that Saruman had betrayed his people and called his army for another battle scene for you to enjoy.

Though the Fellowship was without question something special, its sequel puts it to sleep like a rabid dog. It took every great aspect of it and doubled it. I enjoyed Two Towers battle scene. Helms Deep is an image that will forever stay in my mind. I have never seen something so epic. The overall part of this movie that hit me was Smeagol. He was full of so many personalities and made you feel so many different emotions towards him. Not to mention that he was so well animated that you could not believe he was computer animated. He alone brought life into the whole movie. How was it possible for this movie to be twice as good as the first? Words cannot express it. I felt the theater with an expression I’ve never felt before.
