The Lord of the Rings - The Two Towers [Special Extended Edition]

( 91 )

Overview

Like The Fellowship of the Ring before it, The Two Towers received two separate DVD releases: First, a respectable two-disc version of the theatrical release, then approximately three months later, a superb four-disc edition. Besides the wealth of extra features in this set, the main attraction is the extended cut of the film, which adds over 43 minutes of new footage, including an important flashback sequence with Boromir (Sean Bean) and Faramir (David Wenham). The total run time has been increased to 223 ...

Overview

Like The Fellowship of the Ring before it, The Two Towers received two separate DVD releases: First, a respectable two-disc version of the theatrical release, then approximately three months later, a superb four-disc edition. Besides the wealth of extra features in this set, the main attraction is the extended cut of the film, which adds over 43 minutes of new footage, including an important flashback sequence with Boromir (Sean Bean) and Faramir (David Wenham). The total run time has been increased to 223 minutes, and spreading the movie over two discs has also allowed for greater picture and sound quality compared to the previously released single-disc version. (The second disc of the that version was devoted solely to extras.) As is to be expected, the film is formatted in widescreen enhanced for 16 x 9 TVs, and the full palette of sound options includes Dolby Digital 5.1 EX, DTS 6.1 ES, and Dolby Digital Stereo tracks. Along with the movie itself come four separate audio commentaries: Peter Jackson and the film's writers; the design team; the production and post production crew, and finally, all of the major cast members. Discs three and four hold a huge amount of supplemental material, including 13 original documentaries, interactive maps of Middle-earth, and image galleries with nearly 2,000 images. For an idea of the sheer volume of material here, watching all of the documentaries and featurettes straight through would take over six hours. This set is a must-have, even for those who bought the original Two Towers DVD release.

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.
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.
Variety - Todd McCarthy
Has a sharper narrative focus and a livelier sense of forward movement than did the more episodic Fellowship.

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.

    Very good movies that gets Judged by few idiots.

    Whoever hates these movies is really gay and self centered. Out of all the critics, these movies are better than Star Wars. Like anyone is going to make the movies excactly like the book. If you read the book, you would know what would happen. It's better to surprise than dissapoint. And dissapoint it did not. Especially not me. People need to understand more about movies and their directors points than judge them!

    The Lord of The Rings is my favorite book series and I love it in movie format too. This is a great movie worth seeing, but you might want to read it first.

    must see

    I wasn't too into wizards & warriors & hobbits and all that other crazy stuff until someone told me to just watch the first one. so I did and then the second one and then the third one. i realised that I may not know all the characters by name or where they're from yet I know that I really like the visualism & imagination that it brings to life. I'm a huge skeptic & I think that no one knows what really happens in middle earth & no one is brave enough to go find out.

    This sophomore effort shines brighter than the first.

    Every great adventure story worth telling has a solid hero - someone who puts others before themselves and uses their talents to do their best at keeping the forces of evil at bay even if it means the loss of life and limb. At its core, this movie has eight such heroes and each one lives up to the call. Peter Jackson was faced with a great challenge but he managed to pull this off real well. This film was better paced than the first in the trilogy. There were still some breaks in the action that were a little dull, but the dialog was necessary to further the story. With three separate stories going on simultaneously between the three groups of the splintered fellowship, the film kept the action moving quickly. Clocking in at 179 minutes, it is just one minute longer than the first film. This time, I didn't mind the length. The battle for Isengard comprised about a third of the film, and it was very intense. The rest of the film had a lot of the same excellent cinematic shots tracking the actors from above done by helicopter. The landscapes helped to keep me involved with the story when the action slowed for dialog intensive scenes. The creature Gollum played a very key roll in this movie, and the computer-generated character was very lifelike and amusing. He sort of reminded me of Dobby the `House Elf' in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Gollum and the Dwarf were the two main comic relief characters in this very serious film. As a film, this movie has it all - action, drama, comedy - but none of it would've worked without characters we cared about, villains we despised and heroes we cheered for. Great film!

    Best Movie Ever!

    This was, to me, the best of the three movies. Legolas and Gimli had always been my favorite characters in the books and the movies, and a lot of the new scenes were about them. Pippin and Merry's job of playing the commic relief is given over to Legolas and Gimli. Frodo begins to truly realize the burden that he is carrying on a gold chain around his neck, and Aragorn is coming to see that he is needed. Not as a ranger, but as a king. The Battle of Helms Deep was by far my favorite part of the movie. It seemed so real, and it was even better than I pictured it in the book. This takes everything that happened in the first movie and puts it into play. Anyone who has the time to watch a three and a half hour movie should give this a try!

    Jackson doesn't let Tolkien fans down!!!

    Two Towers picks up where Fellowship left off in a grand fashion and refers to the breaking of the company enough so that anyone who hasn't seen Fellowship can easily follow the story and fall in love with the characters. (I can't imagine who!) Frodo and Sam are on their way to Mordor, Merry and Pippin have been taken by a band of Saruman's evil Uruk-Hai orcs, and Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas have vowed to go after the two kidnapped Hobbits. Despite the absence of a light-hearted beginning like Fellowship had, Towers more than makes up for "warm fuzzy" feelings by enriching the characters and expanding our view of Middle-Earth. The skirmishes with the Nazgul and orcs in Fellowship, though breathtaking, look like nothing compared to the amazing Battle of Helm's Deep, a desperate fight for life that has me quietly muttering encouragement to the good guys each time I see it. Like the previous Extended Edition, Jackson and his crew add to the amazing theatrical film with extended battles and touching and/or hilarious character-driven scenes. Betcha didn't know Eowyn can cook, huh? Well, as you will see, she can't! The Appendices are also must sees. They document the making of the film from all aspects and are thoroughly engrossing. So, if you adore films, are a Tolkien fan, or are determined to know what all the fuss is about, this (and is 2 accompanying films) make a great night on the couch! Jackson's vision does Tolkien's classic work justice in the best possible way!

    A Huge Fan

    I love the movie. Peter Jackson did a wonderful job with the battel of Helm's Deep. I love watching it and think that the extra parts make the story more understanding. I love Legolus.

    The Two Towers was the absolutely best movie I have ever seen. I love the battle at Helm's Deep- so cool! Have you ever seen so many Orcs? I would definitely recommend the movie to people.

    it cant get any better than this

    helms deep is hands down the best battle in any movie ever made period. the only thing that can come close is the battle in return of the king, so the lord of the rings trilogy corners the market there, gollum was great, it seemed they gave gimli more of a personality in this one, this was the coolest movie.

    Don't listen to anyone who gave it less than 4 stars

    This was phenomenal! Yes it did depart from the book a lot but it's still really really good. It's a pity they had to alter so much, but that's part of movies. You can't have Faramir a good guy because that would bore a lot of people. The Special Edition is really good for people who want to know how they made it. It's got a lot more inside facts and they finally brought in the big thing about Aragorn having the Ring of Barahir. They also saluted Old Man Willow and Tolkien's poetry (unfortunately it was altered a bit too). You really want to listen to the commentary and watch the documentaries on WETA workshop and WETA digital. It expands on the characters too with scenes about Gimli and Legolas, Pippin and Merry, Boromir and Faramir, Theodred, Eowyn and Theoden. About the race issue, may I remind you what period of time the book was written? If you've read the book and was upset by it then DON'T SEE THE MOVIE! And on the Easterlings: They were white. Arwen is considered pretty much the most beautiful woman on earth and she's considered a 'dark beauty'.

    extra scenes kick @$$!!!!!!!!!!!!

    when i saw the two towers i was dissapointed because they cut out a lot of parts, but in the exteneded version they are mostly added back! it shows sam and frodo climbing down a mountains with the rope from galadriel and pippin and merry drink the ent water!!!! there is also a lot more! the only bad thing about the longer version is that it may be too long. i have no problem with it, but if you arent a fan to the books i would suggest you stick with the shorter version because this one might be too long.

    Lord of the Rings books Fanatic

    I love the lord of the rings books, I think J.R.R. Tolkien was a genious. I think the Movies are works of art. I believe they are not perfect, but can you really expect movies now a days, taken classic literature to be perfect? When in modern society bravery, goodness, warfare and the wish to destroy evil is looked down upon. Tolkien lovers should not complain now when it is too late to turn back the clock they should at least be happy that Jackson did such a good job and did not completley destroy them. Is it not better that he made it a trilogy instead of only one movie? Consider what he could have done and rejoice that he did not!

    Almost Discraceful

    Anyone who has ever read the books know that the Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit, or There and Back again are much more than what are portrayed in the movies. I understand how Peter Jackson couldn't fit the vast world of Middle Earth into a trilogy of movies, but my problem is that there arn't that many glimpses into Tolkien's world that would encourage people to read the books. If you havn't I highly suggest it, these movies are splendid, but they don't even measure up to the enormous universe Tolkien created.
