Overview

New Line Cinema and Peter Jackson continue their string of excellence in the first release of the Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers on DVD. Presented here in its theatrical cut, the focus isn't quite heaped on the extras as much as it's presenting the film audiences saw and loved in the theaters in the most spectacular presentation possible for home viewing. Visually, The Two Towers has never looked better, with its 2.35:1 widescreen picture working as a perfect vehicle to show off cinematographer Andrew Lesnie's skillful eye and the amazing digital color-correction done in post-production. The audio as well is powerful and full, thanks to the 5.1 Dolby Digital EX Surround Sound and 2.0 tracks supplied -- for proof, look no further than the Battle of Helm's Deep, whose layers of rain, thunder, and carnage are mixed perfectly with Howard Shore's driving score, creating bombastic booms that will no doubt rock whatever sound system you're running. The rest of the two-disc edition follows the same groundwork laid by the original Fellowship DVD in which the extras are mostly just but a taste of what's to come. Even though audiences are licking their lips for the later, more beefed-up Special Extended Edition (featuring a longer cut of the film along with an unbelievable amount of extras), this edition still holds its own with bonus materials that won't make it onto its sister disc -- most notably, the ten-minute preview of The Return of the King, which finds Peter Jackson in the editing lab teasing the audience with snippets of footage that will no doubt leave fans on the floor ready for more. With equal time split between behind-the-scenes and actual film footage, for most, this is the main draw of this release and not surprisingly, it doesn't disappoint. For more sneak peeks into the third film's goodness, simply head to the preview of Electronic Arts' The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King video game, which showcases more choice footage from the upcoming film along with interviews from the cast and creators of the game. For those that just can't wait for The Two Towers: Extended Edition, there's also a preview of the four-disc set, which highlights Boromir's (Sean Bean) cut flashback scenes, along with many other large and small plot lines that are now added back into the film (which should lay rest to any of the hardcore Tolkien fans' initial complaints). There are two full specials that make an appearance on the disc, both filmed especially for the Starz/Encore and WB cable channels. Each provide the same levels of insight into the production of the second film, which are in turn, built upon in the lordoftherings.net featurettes -- eight small behind-the-scene video bits that were available on the web before the release of the film. The teaser and theatrical trailer are also supplied, along with a whopping 16 TV spots ready for you to jump into. Throwaway to most, though probably important to the remaining few, there's also Emiliana Torrini's music video to "Gollum's Song," which basically comes off as a classy, but still throw-together compilation of footage from the film and her in the studio (a duet with Gollum would have been better). Finally, one of the best things about the disc is the inclusion of Sean Astin's terribly sweet short film The Long and Short of It, filmed in the town of Wellington on an off-day from the production utilizing everything from extra cameras to various cast and crew alike, followed by a behind-the-scenes clip with some hilarious interviews with Andy Serkis and company. Far too easily written off as the lesser of the two initial releases of the film, this disc is an assurance that the original version of the film will live on for years to come.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
The second part of this epic trilogy, based on the perennially bestselling fantasy novels by J.R.R. Tolkien, not only meets but surpasses the high standards set by the initial film, The Fellowship of the Ring. Director Peter Jackson, working from a masterfully adapted script by Frances Walsh, condenses the second book's narrative in a way that captures all the highlights and eliminates the dragging spots. The result is a truly spectacular movie, crammed with action and darker in tone than its predecessor. The story initially focuses on the hobbits Frodo Baggins played by Elijah Wood and Sam Gamgee Sean Astin, who press on toward Mordor and the ultimate disposition of the magical ring they reluctantly bear. Our attention is subsequently directed toward other members of the Fellowship -- human Aragorn Viggo Mortensen, elf Legolas Orlando Bloom, and dwarf Gimli John Rhys-Davies -- who join forces with a group of humans besieged by demon warriors commanded by the malevolent Lord Saruman Christopher Lee. Utilizing spectacular New Zealand locations, Jackson's production has enormous scope and majesty, but the director never loses sight of his characters, whose personalities are fully crystallized here. The acting is of a uniformly high caliber, with octogenarian Lee and newly minted genre stalwart Ian McKellen returning as the wizard Gandalf edging out their younger costars for top honors. Computer-generated effects are employed generously, but rather than dominating, the action they complement it. A movie that is truly dazzling in every way, The Two Towers builds mammoth anticipation for the trilogy's conclusion, The Return of the King.
All Movie Guide - Karl Williams
Co-writer and director Peter Jackson continues his Oscar-winning, box-office blockbuster adaptation of the classic fantasy novel from author J.R.R. Tolkien with a second installment that plunges the fictional setting of Middle-earth into a vicious war. Welcome additions to the action in the sophomore adventure include the CG-created Gollum, moving front and center as a major character who is simply amazing in his ability to entertain and move the viewer emotionally. The most pathetic creature in the trilogy, he's a schizophrenic nightmare but heartbreakingly human and poignantly, dazzlingly realized by a combination of actor Andy Serkis's physical skill and Jackson's special effects experts. Gollum puts the similar Jar Jar Binks character of the second Star Wars trilogy to shame. Also thrilling are a climactic battle between Ents (living "trees") and the evil wizard Saruman (Christopher Lee) that brings to mind any number of breathtaking sequences from The Wizard of Oz (1939), and the final clash between humans and invading enemy forces at Helm's Deep, a lengthy but thrilling clash of bows and shields that recalls the superb fight sequences from Braveheart (1995). Less persuasive are some storytelling elements that fall victim to the filmmakers' effort to condense the story into a three-hour running time: several gaps in the action occur and a few developments are left unexplained or vague, such as how the forces of Éomer (Karl Urban) grow from a few dozen to thousands, how the defenders of the realm of Gondor manage to defeat their attackers, why the Ringwraiths have suddenly switched mounts from horses to dragons (why did they use horses at all in the first film?) -- and why Tolkien felt the need to give every location, character, and object in his work at least three utterly confusing names (those who haven't read the books may be left wondering what the difference is between Éomer and Faramir or Gimli and Grima). However, the simple fact that a novel as dense and detailed as this one hasn't been turned into a labored bore is a miracle; that Jackson has fashioned such a triumphant success is a real artistic achievement. Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002) may be imperfect in its occasionally frustrated effort to squeeze every significant plot element into the mix, but it's a visual marvel and a definite raising of the artistic bar for its entire genre. No filmmaker will ever be able to create a sci-fi or fantasy epic again without comparison against it.
New York Times - Elvis Mitchell
Never has a film so strongly been a product of a director's respect for its source. Mr. Jackson uses all his talents in the service of that reverence, creating a rare perfect mating of filmmaker and material.

Time Magazine - Richard Corliss
Towers, while not quite so varied as Fellowship in its moods and settings, has a grave gusto that energizes every moment...a thrilling work of film craft.
Washington Post - Stephen Hunter
Jackson's not messing around. His commitment to this world is total. He's on a mission from Tolkien, and you either go along or you get trampled.
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert

The Two Towers is a rousing adventure, a skillful marriage of special effects and computer animation, and it contains sequences of breathtaking beauty. It also gives us, in a character named the Gollum, one of the most engaging and convincing CGI creatures I've seen.
Variety - Todd McCarthy
Has a sharper narrative focus and a livelier sense of forward movement than did the more episodic Fellowship.

Never has a film so strongly been a product of a director's respect for its source. Mr. Jackson uses all his talents in the service of that reverence, creating a rare perfect mating of filmmaker and material.

    Great story, but DVD version better

    I have watched the DVD version many times. Very disappointed to find many scenes removed in the Blu ray version: parts of the trek across Rohan, climb down the elvish rope, death of Saruman and more. The story has lost a lot.

    I love LOTR!

    I really like this movie!! I thought Gollum/Smeagol would only be scary. He is actually funny too! He always talks to himself. I like the part when he tells himself "Go away and never come back." It is hard to pick a favorite character. I like them all. One of my favorites is Legolas (Orlando Bloom). It is fuuny watching him and Gimly compete on how many orcs they can kill. I love all the fights. The special effects are amazing. I really, really, really like this movie. I think I have watched it twenty times. I will never get tired of watching it. If I could, I would give this movie 100 stars. I Love LOTR!!!!

    The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

    This one is just exciting with a terrific battle scene near end on Helm's Deep as everyond defends it with the woman and children underneath them trying to stay quiet and alive praying. The movie is far the best of the series so far and then second is the return of the king. In this one of course, we finally get to see Gollum/Smeagol and Sam has a grudge against him none the less since he can't trust him but Frodo has no choice of to ask for his help as a guide to guide him and Sam to their ever long quest towards Mount Doom to destroy the one ring to one rule them all.

    one of the greatest films of all time.

    TTT has done something that few middle films in trilogies does and that is not only bulid upon the story set up by the first film but stands on it own as great cinema not by copying the formual of the first but by being original as we've seen some films that try a new direction in the telling of the story fall short of the orginal but this is not the case with TTT in this story things become darker and the story call upon characters to grow I have read the books and yes the devations bother me a little but I think to myself this movie keep up with the spirit of Tolkien and does it in such a powerful and artistic I loved ever second of this film and this trilogy I give this film 10 stars. Highly Recommended

    Eowyn Rocks!

    I had only read The Hobbit when I saw The Fellowship of the Ring in 2001, and I had loved even though I was never a huge Tolkein fan. The Two Towers is even better! Some say its not true to the book, that may be true but it is still an excellent film that feels so authentic. You get caught up in the world of Middle Earth and believe you are there. Eowyn is my favorite character this time around, but Gollum's cool too. I saw The Return of the King in theaters recently, I can't wait until it comes out in extended version DVD.

    one of the best movies ever made!

    When you watch any Lord of the rings movie, but especially this one, you get sucked into the world of middle earth where hobbits and elves dwell. It actually seems like you are in the battle of helm's deep, fighting the urak-hai. The movie is so suspenseful and action packed, it will leave you hanging on each and every word the characters say. It is one of those movies that even if you have to go to the bathroom, you will not get up out of your seat no matter what. Peter Jackson makes the characters so believable, it makes you want to get out your sword and fight alongside them. The movie shows you that there is always hope out there no matter what the circumstances are, and this is what I like most about the two towers.

    LOTR The Two Towers - Sensational Movie!

    All in all, I believe this was a fantastic film, a better effort even than the first one, although that one was exceptionally good too! Not having read Tolkien's books, I can't comment from the 'purist's' standpoint about specific 'details' that may or may not have been omitted - or changed - from the original work. But if the books are ANYTHING like the films, I'm VERY anxious to read them now! The backdrops and the scenery (shot in New Zealand) were incredibly gorgeous! 'Rivendell' (from film #1 and then visited briefly again in TTT) actually made me FEEL as if I had been transported to another world - an 'ethereal world' inhabited by a 'noble race of Elves!' The Hobbits were adorable - and very convincing. Gandalf was SUPER! I felt that each actor did an excellent (and believable) job of making his or her individual character 'come to life,' especially for those of us whose familiarity with the books may be limited. I personally LOVED John Rys-Davies' 'crusty' and amusing portrayal of the loyal dwarf, Gimli. And of course - Gollum! What a fantastic technical achievement HE was - SO LIFELIKE in his movements and expression! The battle scenes, of course, were simply awesome, and the comraderie and heroism of the 'fellowship' inspiring. I felt, by the end of this film, that I had really come to 'know' these characters well and to share emotionally in their triumphs and tragedies. I'm looking forward with great anticipation to the third and final film in the trilogy, 'Return of the King.' If that one measures up to the greatness displayed in the two films that preceded it, I know I won't be disappointed!

It's made me notice Cate Blanchett (The Gift), and Viggo Mortensen (Hidalgo, I can't wait!) who was also in 28 Days;I have that movie and i didn't even recognize him! And Orlando Bloom Pirates of the Caribbean-The Curse of the Black Pearl). Good Job, you guys!!!

    The Lord of the Rings trilogy is the best andventure film trilogy ever and it always will be

    This film is GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!It has great special effects and pretty much goes by the book.It would have been better if it did go by the book but still it is a terrific movie.All the scenes that Peter Jackson added that are not in the book are great and exciting.This is a must get DVD!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A Beautiful Example Of The Struggle Of Good Against Evil And Of The Loyalty, Honor, Love And Friendship That Is Not Often Found In This Age.

    The Lord of the Rings-The Two Towers was a wonderful movie that took me to a time of adventure, love, loyalty, and betrayal. The emotions of the characters were excellently portrayed; this along with the amazing music and the story itself allowed me to feel Frodo's struggle, Gollum's lonliness, Aragorn's battle, and the victory of Helm's Deep. Tears fell freely from my eyes each time I saw this movie(3 times so far). And I have to mention how wonderful it was to watch Legolas's character be portrayed by Orlando Bloom, a most beautiful man :-)
