Jackson has steered the story into the action mainstream. To do what he has done in this film must have been awesomely difficult, and he deserves applause, but to remain true to Tolkien would have been more difficult, and braver.

What strikes one more than anything in Towers is the material's dreamlike quality, from Frodo falling into the Dead Marshes and the way Gollum slithers on all fours to the massive black gates of Mordor and Gandalf's climactic charge on Shadowfax — the lord of all horses — down a very steep hill.

The Two Towers, shot at the same time as Part I and Part III, is spectacular in every sense of the word, even if you don’ t know an Orc from a Uruk-Hai.

With all three “Rings” episodes filmed back to back in one monstrous 15-month shoot, “Towers” easily lives up to and frequently exceeds the high technical standards set by the first film.
