LORD OF THE RINGS THE TWO TOWERS (2002)

Review
It all really kicks off in Jackson's adaptation of Tolkien's second book; Frodo and Samwise team up with Gollum in their continuing quest, Aragorn's posse prepare for a last stand at Helmsdeep, the Ents get energised and a mighty new white wizard emerges from the forests. The Two Towers has a darker vision than The Fellowship but Tolkien's work remains very much intact, a sweeping epic, both moving and visually mind blowing. Some of the battle scenes are so powerful they defy description, though the honours must ultimately lie with the CGI manifistation of Gollum, a digital creation that conveys more complexity and humanity than many flesh and blood actors that grace our screen. Unlikely to do anything other than enthrall.
