Fresh: When Gandalf arrives with reinforcements, descending a near-vertical slope using horses where you or I would use snowboards, the spirit of triumphant rampage is something rarely glimpsed since the days of Olivier and Henry V.
- Anthony Lane, New Yorker, Tuesday, November 19, 2013
Fresh: Though Jackson doesn't always succeed in integrating the characters in the foreground into the extraordinarily rich landscape, it must be said that he is an imaginative filmmaker who can see the forest for the trees.
- Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer, Thursday, December 19, 2002
Fresh: What's remarkable is how immediately, after a full year, The Two Towers seizes your attention, and how urgently it holds you through three seamless, action-packed hours.

Peter Jackson does it again with the second part of his Lord Of The Rings trilogy. The Fellowship is no more, and sam and Frodo head to Mordor alone. Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli rescue Pippin and Merry. The story unfolds really quickly, and the film doesn't waste time in telling this awesome story. The film seems well paced and way more action packed than the first film, as theres always something going on on screen, thats not saying that the first one sucked, far from it; it was terrific. But this one as the War Of The Ring is beginning, has of course more action than the first. The Two Towers is an incredible sequel to an incredible film. It is a work of genius that is greater than epic. The actors really shine here, more than they did in the first. Everything is bigger and better in this film, the battles, the characters the special effects, everything. The Two Towers is a towering film going experience that you won't forget for a long time to come. One of the greatest things about this film is the battle of Helm's Deep, exciting and epic, you will definitely be blown away by the scope of this battle, it's action packed and delivers one of the most exciting fantasy battle scenes ever filmed. Peter Jackson is a master filmmaker, and The Two Towers proves it once again.

My least favourite in the trilogy, but an awesome movie nonetheless, that is still leagues better than most fantasy films out there.
