The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
In the second chapter, the Fellowship has dispersed after an attack of Uruk-Hai. Frodo and Sam head south towards Mordor, with the slippery creature Gollum on their trail. Meanwhile, Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli pursue the remaining kidnapped hobbits westward across the plains of Rohan, where the Norse-like horsemen dwell. Here they find the once proud people under the spell of the evil Wizard Saruman, who keeps a hold on them from his tower in Isengard. The struggle for the ring now comes from two directions - Saruman's tower in the west and the dark lord Sauron's in the east.

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.
