The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers Review

This sequel is absolutely magnificent. I enjoyed the first one more but this movie is still emotionally powerful and the story is brilliantly paced, combined with some excellent intense action.

Worst in the series but still very good.

The two towers is the worst in the series but it is still very impressive. Expect a bit more violence than the fellowship of the ring but still, nothing that is surprising for a PG13. There are a few scenes that get rather disturbing which includes a head on a stick (no blood) and a pile of dead bodies next to it burning. An ork attempts to kill merry and pippin. And there are some very violent battle scenes toward the end of the film. There are a few scenes that involve kissing and no language. There is two armies that come riding down a huge hill and collide and a huge battle begins. The only reason I say it is the worst in the series is because there are a lot of slow parts and it may bore kids. The wargs riders of the north are scary for kids. But by far the worst part is when the creature gollum brings frodo and Sam freshly killed rabbits. He tears them apart and pulls out the guts but it looks fake. But still May disturb some kids. Good movie and plenty of action!

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers-Review

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers is a perfect example of "better than the first" movies. This movie has the majority experiencing an outstanding medieval action sequences. If kids don't mind too much blood and can stand this movie should be watched. If you can stand avoiding some gore, anyone can see this from the age of 11. It is a masterpiece of adventure and action. Run-time being the only problem, new characters surface and old ones return in this great film. Aside some flaws, this movie has potential to be 5 stars. Don't miss the final and long scene.A-

Two towers up! sorry about the really bad joke.

My rating: PG-13 for some strong creature violence. Nothing much to say except that this movie = awesomeness!!!!!!. That was a bit overblown but seriously, this is what good movies for everyone are made of.

Teens Only

Yes it's violent. But I think it's a great movie. It is battle violence that can be on the realistic side, but it is a fantasy movie. I think it's good for teens to have a non-glorified look at what war does, especially in today's violent culture. Watch with your teens.

Less satisfying than Fellowship, but still great

This LOTR isn't quite as well-rounded as The Fellowship of the Ring, mainly due to all the back-and-forth subplots and excessiveness. Out of the three subplots, the one with Frodo, Sam, and Gollum is my favorite, since it's more important to the overall plot that all the other subplots. The Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli subplot is also nice with all the combat sequences, and the Merry and Pippin subplot offers cool walking/talking tree scenes. (SPOILER ALERT) The return of Gandalf was also surprising and satisfying, although I think I like Gandalf the Gray better than Gandalf the White, since Gandalf the Gray is more laid back, while Gandalf the White is more strict and focused on combat. Anyway, this may not be quite as good as the first film, but it's still a timeless fantasy adventure that will please both young and old.

Great Film -- beware of gory battle scenes

New Line Cinema has done it again. Even better than the first installation this LOTR film combines more developed characters with a faster moving plot to create a phenomenal cinematographic experience! Several battle scenes are gruesome and several frightening sequences, not for younger teens. If you get the extended version there's some mild drinking and smoking as well, nothing vulgar though. A great film about loyalty and good-vs-evil.

A bloody fantasy powerhouse

This is one of my favorite book/movie series ever, and the two towers is probably the most violent of the three. The orcs are the stormtroopers of the movie, and they are hacked, slashed and decapitated throughout the movie. The violence in this one is probably the grittiest and most disturbing, but the goriest scenes are not lingered on and most of the deaths are Orc deaths which you could care less about. A few characters drink and/or smoke, but it's not really an issue; their are also many positive messages and heroic individuals during TTT. An excellent movie for all fantasy lovers!

Really cool for teens,but has a lot of violence.

Has a few scary moments that might be scary for kids under 12. Has big battles and bloody scenes with heads stuck to poles and Saruman might scare kids under 12. Much better than part one.
