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


The journey continues, but now the Fellowship are split up. Frodo (Elija Wood) and Sam (Sean Astin) continue toward Mordor to destroy the ring, now accompanied by Gollum (Andy Serkis). Pippin (Billy Boyd) and Merry (Dominic Monaghan) have been kidnapped and Legolas (Orlando Bloom), Aragon (Viggo Mortensen) and Gimli (John Rhys-Davies) race to save them. Somewhere along the way, Pippin and Merry have found Treebeard and the other giant ancient tree creatures. And Gandalf (Ian McKellan) who we last saw fighting against a giant fire demon creature, has come back and continues to be awesome.

And that is just the tip of the iceberg. It is exciting, fast yet long, with a fabulous battle and my favourite character in a long time; Treebeard. What a dude.

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers won Oscars for Best Sound Editing and Best Visual Effects and was nominated for Best Picture, Best Art Direction – Set Direction, Best Film Editing and Best Sound.
