Review: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

LOTR: The Two Towers

The Lord of the Rings trilogy is something I thought I ought to see (as a event destined to become part of cinema history) but yet also wasn’t bothered if I saw it or not. Having missed the first instalment meant I was also a bit wary of seeing the second part. It turns out that I was pleasantly surprised!

Although a bit slow to start of with, the film soon gathers pace and I found myself involved with the characters easier than I thought - even without seeing The Fellowship of the Ring. The totally computer-generated character ‘Gollum’ is also totally believable and perhaps the first that could involve you so much into their personality.

The climax of the film - the battle for Helms Deep is truly spectacular and did see me sitting very close to the edge of my seat. Of course it goes without saying that I will now be watching the first part on DVD very soon - and if you have yet to get into the trilogy - it’s not to late and you won’t be disappointed.
