All will be sacrificed... All will be lost... Unless all unite against evil.
The Fellowship has been broken. Boromir (Sean Bean) is dead, Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood) and Samwise Gamgee (Sean Astin) have gone to Mordor alone to destroy the One Ring, Merry (Dominic Monaghan) and Pippin (Billy Boyd) have been captured by the Uruk-hai, and Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen), Legolas (Orlando Bloom), and Gimli (John Rhys-Davies) have made friends of the Rohan, a race of humans that are in the path of the upcoming war, led by its aging king, Théoden (Bernard Hill).
The two towers between Mordor and Isengard, Barad-dúr and Orthanc, have united in their lust for destruction. The corrupt wizard Saruman (Christopher Lee), under the power of the Dark Lord Sauron, and his slimy assistant, Gríma Wormtongue (Brad Dourif), have created a grand Uruk-hai army bent on the destruction of Man and Middle-earth. The rebellion against Sauron is building up and will be led by Gandalf the White (Sir Ian McKellen), who was thought to be dead after the Balrog captured him. One of the Ring's original bearers, the creature Gollum (Andy Serkis), has tracked Frodo and Sam down in search of his 'precious', but is captured by the Hobbits and used as a way to lead them to Mt. Doom.
The War of the Ring has now begun...
The Fellowsip has broken, but the quest to destroy the One Ring continues. Frodo and Sam must entrust their lives to Gollum if they are to find their way to Mordor. As Saruman's army approaches, the surviving members of The Fellowship, along with people and creatures from Middle-Earth, prepare for battle. The War of The Ring has begun. Nominated for six Academy Awards including Best Picture.

Lord Of The Rings The - The Two Towers, the second installment to a grand and epic adventure. never a boring moment, this movie helps tie up some loose ends and holds true to the action adventure feel that its predecessor sets. if you are still debating on watching this, stop wasting time and go get it you will not be disappointed.
There are a lot of second films (in trilogies) that end up being the best, perhaps because they don't have to set everything up, and don't have to wrap everything up either. They can just unwind as they want. "The Two Towers" is like that, being my personal favourite of the three films. But the extended edition is the better of the two versions to see.
I couldn't believe it when The Two Towers 'failed' at the Oscars. This was equally as good as the two other films in Peter Jackson's epic trilogy, yet the usual political nonsense at the American driven Oscars meant that The Two Towers missed out. There are some amazing moments in this film, not least the battle of Helm's Deep, the march of the Ents, and the best theme song of the trilogy - 'Gollum's Song' by Emiliana Torrini.
the two towers, the second installment of the lord of the rings trilogy was just as good, if not better than the first film. in a word: it was incredible! the special affects in this film had really stepped up, and was amazing. this movie was amazing to watch, and not a single person could say they didnt enjoy all the action and humour, just a little bit!! must watch!
LORD OF THE RINGS! well i dont think you can say anything bad about this film! i live in newzealand and i am SO proud to be a newzealander! peter jackson did such a phenomenal job as director and together with all the talented actors and crew, they created the greatest series in history!! definatley go out and buy this. its great
Even though this is not completely true to the book (which includes the death of Boromir and Frodo and Gollums journey through shelobs lair) this is an excellent movie. I find it hard to believe that Peter Jackson (a director infamous for making two of the goriest movies out there) would make such an epic, successful movie. The battle for Helms Deep is one of the best on screen battles I have ever seen, even if legolas rides down a set of stairs on his sheild like a snowboard (which made me laugh because it reminded me of the Vin Desiel movie "XXX"). Better than the first movie, but not quite up there with the third. Anybody could enjoy this movie, for the whole 3 hours, it manages to be interesting the whole way through. Highly reccomended.
Sauron's forces increase. His allies grow. The Ringwraiths return in an even more frightening form. Saruman's army of Uruk Hai is ready to launch an assault against Aragorn and the people of Rohan. Yet, the Fellowship is broken and Boromir is dead. For the little hope that is left, Frodo and Sam march on into Mordor, unprotected. A number of new allies join with Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, Pippin and Merry. And they must defend Rohan and attack Isengard. Yet, while all this is going on, Sauron's troops mass toward the City of Gondor, for the War of the Ring is about to begin.
although this lacks some of the poignancy of the first lord of the rings movie, the fellow ship of the ring, it never the less is excellent any way. most of it comprised of fight scenes between the fellow ship and orcs, but it still packed the deep and meaningful atmosphere that peter jackson put into the first one
A wicked sequal to one of the bigest movies of all time, i love the lord of the rings movies and i should, since im a kiwi, the sequel to thre first lord of the rings, or the two towers is a real treat with mind blowing visuas, a stunning story, and an overall awesome effort by peter jackson. Ive much respect for this guy and he seems to have the magic touch for movies...well done
