Elijah Wood|Ian McKellen|Viggo Mortensen|Orlando Bloom (Actor), Peter Jackson (Director) Rated: Suitable for 12 years and over Format: VHS Tape The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers [Theatrical Version]  : Great DVD in English and German
I remember reading the lord of the rings a number of times when i was at school, and the second book was always the one that i remember for the battle at helm’s deep and the siege of isengard. Needless to say i was not disappointed with either of these scenes in the film. The second film exceeds the first, simply on those two scenes alone. You can almost feel the tension while looking out through the rain at the horde of sauron. Obviously the two disc set has a vast array of features that all fans will find interesting, especially the features on the making of the film. I’m not sure whether the 4 disc edition will be worth paying the extra for, as i have not seen the 4 disc version of fellowship to see what else has been added. Many people have been critical of the films, because they are not one hundred percent faithful to the books. My opinion is that they should be seen as a separate entity. If you went and watched either of the first two films without any preconception then you would be blown away by them. I hope that the bravery of cast and crew in putting these amazing books in a format accessible to everyone will, in turn, lead to a new generation discovering tolkien’s world.
Came this morning, not very happy with the outer packaging very faded i was hoping the item would be brand new. Its not worth sending it back now cost as much to post back, the contents inside are good just was expecting it to be better, but i didn’t pay much so you can’t have everything:(.
I much prefer the extended versions. More light n ‘magical’ bits that balance the film out. [obviously ignoring the stereotypes] i actually warmed to eowyn as a character, didnt in the originals. Always felt the originals had bits missing and in the places where the extended parts mostly are so little details make more sense.
the two towers, a filmn by peter jackson from 2002, a live action adaptation of j r r tolkiens’ the lord of the rings. The two towers (lord of the rings). I saw this film when it was released, then bought this collectors box set the next year. It has over 20 hours of viewing including a 4 hour film and hours of documentaries. Definitely worth while investment for tolkien fan.
- I love The Lord Of The Rings
- What the people think
- the film is of course excellent and the quality of the transfer is amazing –
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers [Theatrical Version] 
Unsure why this one was so difficult to get hold of and why it is so much more expensive than the first and last film. But good quality and still worth it for the extended version on blu ray.
Excellent portrayal of the books and delivered by a great cast. Enjoyable watch after watch – on my 10th viewing atleast.
The only thing that totally went against j. R tolkien’s original trilogy is the way elijah wood played frodo baggins. In the books the character is not a total wimp, or a big girl’s blouse.
I hunted high and low for this after buying a new bluray player. I didn’t want to buy all the extras again – only the ee versions of the films. The fotr and the rotk were available immediately for £3 and £5. The tt was conspicuous by its absence. After a wait of six weeks or more checking various sites it popped up here for £7. The price has increased significantly since then. Anyway, the film is of course excellent and the quality of the transfer is amazing – the sound too is excellent. If you want the ee films without the bloat content – i would go for this one.
Two towers is every bit as good as the first part of the trilogy,a hugely entertaining production. Peter jackson’s finest work has been bringing tolkien’s masterpiece to life on the screen.
My favourite of the 3, the battle of helms deep is absolutely epic. Some great sequences all through the film, especially the conversation between gollum and smeagol. Special mention for the seller for sending me this twice after royal mail decided to make things awkward by sending it back to him.
Why oh why don’t all dvd’s have several languages these days?. This is in english and german. Selfish companies, but would also have been nice in french and italian so i don’t have to buy different copies to practice different languages.
I love the lord of the rings. Brilliantly adapted from the book and the extended cuts are well worth it , new zealand is a perfect backdrop for the tale and peter jackson weaves his magic between cgi and attention to detail. The cast is outstanding , particularly gandalf and aragorn.
I purchased this as part of the trilogy extended versions of the films and was not disappointed.
Some people think this one wasn’t as good as the first and last, that it was in-necessary but i disagree, it was exciting and full of action.
Brilliant extensions of brilliant cinema, with hours of amazing and informative extras. No other way to watch tolkien’s masterpiece.
Whether you’ve been able to sit and read the book. Try watching the films at least once. This is the second instalment. Be aware you really need to watch these films in order to understand the story line. The films do on occasion drag things out but as they planned them over 3 films to be as faithful to the books as they could possibly be, i think they’ve done a very ok job.
A fantastic adaptation of the e-book. Terrific character definition & great action scenes, the battle of helms deep was excelent – even with a slight deviation from the ebook. Peter jackson & the solid have done an remarkable position bringing the people to lifetime. Great version of the e-book.
Element of 1 of the biggest fantasy franchises of all time, unfortunately i come across it not fairly as very good as the other two but still well worth a observe.
Possibly the finest of the a few movies.
Lastly i have the full established. I bought this as portion of a triple box set from escto and only realised that this disc was missing following the receipt had turned shiny/gotten dropped/expired. Either way i have my treasured.
For me this is the remarkable minimize of this movie – great drama all round and additions which allow everything to breathe. Greater depth to many of the stories, and sits between fellowship and return very properly. The climax is just one the ideal items i have experienced in cinema, and it retains its electrical power in the prolonged type.
Andy serkis should really truly have won an oscar for his overall performance as sméagol. Regrettably, the awards folks experienced no way of telling which identity would flip up to recieve the award, and if it was gollum alternatively of sméagol that went up to give the speech, they felt it would have just supplied off all the wrong messages. But in essence, this is why andy serkis deserved the oscar to start out with and frankly it is the finest travesty given that the oscars began. Sincerely,a accurate lord of the rings admirer who feels there has been a true injustice here, but i’m positive that is just the belief of me and not numerous millions of people all around the environment.
