At the end of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, following the death of Boromir (Sean Bean) and the plunge into the pit at Khazad-dm by Gandalf The Grey (Sir Ian McKellen), The Fellowship disbanded. Though splintered into three groups, the members of the original nine-member assemblage are no less determined to fulfil Frodo's heroic quest. . .
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers begins in the hills of Emyn Muil, where lost Hobbits Frodo (Elijah Wood) and Sam (Sean Astin) discover they are being followed by the mysterious and extraordinarily rendered Gollum (Andy Serkis). A mercurial creature who has been warped by his proximity to the Ring, Gollum promises to guide the Hobbits to the Black Gates of Mordor. . .
Across Middle-earth, Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen), the Elf archer Legolas (Orlando Bloom) and Gimli the Dwarf (John Rhys-Davies) encounter the besieged Kingdom of Rohan, whose once great King Theoden (Bernard Hill) has fallen under the deadly spell of evil wizard Saruman The White (Christopher Lee) through the machinations of his spy, the sinister Grima Wormtongue (Brad Dourif). Eowyn (Miranda Otto), the niece of the King, recognizes a leader in Aragorn, and though the warrior finds himself drawn to her, Aragorn is constantly reminded of his enduring love for the Elf Arwen (Liv Tyler) and the pact they've made. Gandalf, reborn as Gandalf the White following his cataclysmic battle with the Balrog, reminds Aragorn of his destiny to unite the people of Rohan with Gondor, the last remaining stronghold of Human resistance. . .
Meanwhile, the captured Hobbits Merry (Dominic Monaghan) and Pippin (Billy Boyd) escape from their monstrous Uruk-hai captors and, fleeing into the mysterious Fangorn Forest, discover an unexpected ally among the ancient trees---Treebeard (voiced by Rhys-Davies), a living, walking, talking tree-shepherd, among the oldest creature in Middle-earth, whose forest Saruman has decimated. . .
In their parallel journeys, the Fellowship will stand against the powerful forces spreading from the Two Towers -- Orthanc Tower in Isengard, where Saruman has bred a lethal army of 10,000 strong; and Sauron's fortress at Barad-dr, deep within the dark lands of Mordor. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers culminates in the astonishing battle for the refuge Helm's Deep: the Kingdom of Rohan's ancient large stone fortress, besieged by Uruk-hai warriors.

The only way to get the full enjoyment and impact of Peter Jacksons "Lord of the Rings" Trilogy is to view all three movies on the Extended Versions - a lot of extra footage is included which the theatrical versions -because of time constraints- had to leave out.
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 because it is the extended version
This extended edition is really worth buying. It is a great addition to every collection and the new parts of the movie are really worth watching.
Lord Of the Rings Two Towers Extended Ed (4Disc) is worth buying!
After the fellowship has broken, Merry and Pippin, taken by orcs, make new allies in the Ents, while Legolas, Gimli and Aragorn make allies in the people of Rohan, and all of them must launch an assault on Isengard. Meanwhile, Frodo and Sam force Gollum to guide them through Mordor, trusting him with their lives.
the thing about peter jackson is that the man actually thought ahead to what the dvd was going to be like when he was making the movie for cinema. it is actually worth getting the extended edition because there is so much extra material and deleted scenes that fans would have seen other wise
The lord of the rings the two towers extended edition dvds are a must have for any movie lover. they are full of awesome and insightful behind the scenes footage and documentaries as well as new scenes in the actual movie. I highly recommend watching the movie with the director's and cast commentary, it offers a great insight into the making of the films. It is fantastic
great pack! the second movie isnt the best in the trilogy, but it is still a real must watch if you plan on understanding the whole series. there are some more great scenes in here, such as in the forest with the ents, but some of the action wears thin after a while. the behind the scenes info on here is excellent though, it talks you through choices in scenery and costuming etc!
L O T R: two towers is a great movie, and this version is ways better with alot more scenbes added to the actual movie making it more complete and for those people who love special features and behind the scenes etc. its got 2 discs to keep you enteretained for a while
This is a great movie it is full of exciting and exilerating. I have watched all three and i have found that they are one of the best movies i have ever seen. They just capture my mind and i love it how they have used the characters. Overall i really enjoy Lord of the Rings..
This is the way to watch Jackson's great Tolkien films - the extended versions are much better than the original theatrical releases. The two Towers has a nubmer of storylines going at once, as opposed to the single narrative thread of the first film. The lcimax is the siege at Helm's Deep, where 10 000 Uruk Hai attack the remnants of Rohan at the ancient fortress. Brilliant...
