Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Adventure - This second installment of the fantasy/adventure trilogy should please the many fans of the first film as well as attract more moviegoers with its stronger action element. The film is far more violent than the first film, but it's never graphic; that said, it is too intense for younger children.

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Good "The Two Towers conjures an illusion of the gravity that you want from an emotionally charged storybook epic. Really, though, what it comes down to is superbly staged battle scenes and moral alliances forged in earnest yet purged of the wit and dynamic, bristly ego that define true on-screen personality.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Excellent "The Two Towers starts out a little slowly, but the rousing second half will leave audiences craving more. Combined, The Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers represent one of the most engrossing and engaging six-hour segments of cinema I have ever enjoyed. Like its predecessor, The Two Towers is a great motion picture, and not to be missed by anyone who appreciates fantasy adventure.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Good "The Two Towers will possibly be more popular than the first film, more of an audience-pleaser, but hasn't Jackson lost the original purpose of the story somewhere along the way? He has taken an enchanting and unique work of literature and retold it in the terms of the modern action picture.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Very Good "Though darker, more violent and even more of a cliffhanger than its predecessor, The Fellowship of the Ring,Towers also is more visually dazzling — which might seem unlikely, given the mastery of the first.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

WOW! These are probably the highest opinions I've ever seen. It's certainly the most "Fantastic" opinions I've seen. This is obviously a movie I can highly recommend.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
Audiences should react even more enthusiastically to THE TWO TOWERS than the blockbuster first film. The increased action and violence could mean a little less enthusiasm from older viewers and women, but the excitement and majesty of this epic adventure should translate to very positive reactions across the board.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers begins in the hills of Emyn Muil, where lost Hobbits Frodo (Elijah Wood) and Sam (Sean Astin) discover they are being followed by the mysterious Gollum (Andy Serkis). A mercurial creature who has himself been warped by the Ring, Gollum promises to guide the Hobbits to the Black Gates of Mordor if they will release him. Sam does not trust their new companion, but Frodo takes pity on Gollum, who like himself was once a Ringbearer.

Across Middle-earth Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen), the Elf archer Legolas (Orlando Bloom) and Gimli the Dwarf (John Rhys-Davies) encounter the besieged Rohan kingdom, whose once great King Theoden (Bernard Hill) has fallen under Saruman's deadly spell through the manipulations of his spy, the sinister Wormtongue (Brad Dourif). Eowyn (Miranda Otto), the niece to the King, recognizes a leader in the Human warrior Aragorn. And though he finds himself drawn to her, Aragorn is constantly reminded of his enduring love for the Elf Arwen (Liv Tyler) and the pact they made together.

Gandalf (Ian McKellen) has been reborn as Gandalf the White following his cataclysmic fight with the Balrog, and reminds Aragorn of his destiny to unite the Rohan people with the last remaining stronghold of Human resistance – Gondor.

Meanwhile, the captured Hobbits Merry (Dominic Monaghan) and Pippin (Billy Boyd) have escaped from the Uruk-hai on their own, fleeing into the mysterious Fangorn Forest, where they discover an unexpected ally among the ancient trees – Treebeard, a living, walking tree-shepherd, whose forest Saruman has decimated.

In their parallel journeys, the Fellowship will face unimaginable armies and deception while also witnessing ancient wonders and the untapped strength of their people. Together they must stand against the powerful forces spreading from the Two Towers – Orthanc Tower in Isengard, where the corrupted wizard Saruman has bred a lethal army 10,000 strong; and Sauron's fortress at Barad-dûr, deep within the dark lands of Mordor.
