My favorite

This one is my favorite of the trilogy. It is the only Lord of the Rings movie that does not seem to go way too long. I really like the plot with the possessed king and the battle with the trees. The final battle is probably the best of the series as it is not quite so drawn out as the finale in Return of the King.

ReviewSource San Francisco Examiner
Review Ultimately, the best thing about The Two Towers is Jackson's palpable enthusiasm for not just this movie, but the trilogy. He's as excited about part two as he was about part one. But this time, he's buckled down, ready for the serious business of storytelling, glad that the bother of introducing characters is over and done with. We almost can feel his impatience in having to wait a year to show us the rest of his epic.

Review 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. If Tolkien had wanted to write about a race of supermen, he would have written a Middle-Earth version of Conan the Barbarian. But no. He told a tale in which modest little hobbits were the heroes. And now 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.

Review The Two Towers starts out a little slowly, but the rousing second half, which gathers momentum like a boulder racing downhill, will leave audiences craving more when the end credits roll. 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. If the final third of the puzzle is the equal of the first two, this will go down as one of the crowning achievements of cinema. Like its predecessor, The Two Towers is a great motion picture, and not to be missed by anyone who appreciates fantasy adventure.
