"The Lord of the Rings" trilogy are three of my all time favorite movies. Obviously, I really enjoyed "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers". The movie starts right where "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" concluded. This movie was truly spectacular. I would still say that "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" is the better movie. "The Two Towers" was surprisingly more violent than its predecessor. I thought it had better action than "The Fellowship of the Ring". The battle at Helm's Deep is my favorite movie battle of all time. When Gandalf and the horseman of Rohan came down from the hill, I was amazed by how well it was shot. Like the first movie, "The Two Towers" deals with the themes of friendship and faith. Despite the fact that the fellowship has split, Frodo and Sam continue to look out for each other. The introduction of the character of Gollum was flawless. Andy Serkis deserved an Oscar for his performance as Gollum. The only very minor problem I had with the movie was that it sometimes felt like the filmmakers were focusing too much on the ents rather than the hobbits and the rest of the fellowship. I still enjoy watching the ents interact. "The Two Towers" was very riveting and interesting to watch. It has many suspenseful moments that are handled so incredibly well. Many people say that this movie is their favorite sequel of all time, but for me, "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" was more enjoyable and interesting. This movie still gets an A+ because it is so iconic and filled with tremendous CGI. Peter Jackson did very well with this movie. I was somewhat surprised that this movie wasn't bad because sometimes, the sequel can fail. People who haven't watched the first film will be very confused so I highly recommend watching the first one first. This movie deserved all the Academy Award(R)s it received and it could have gotten more in my opinion.
