MTV.COM (KURT LODER):
“Any attempt to convey in words the electrifying sweep and transporting emotional resonance of “The Two Towers” can only seem like critical overkill…to those who haven’t seen it yet. A tsunami of groping superlatives will no doubt herald the movie’s release on December 18, and you, too, will surely join in. Don’t fight it. You can’t.” To read more, CLICK HERE
“‘The Two Towers’ is the film of the year. It’s an epic battle and some that loved “The Fellowship of the Ring” might be shocked because of the sheer power, violence and volume of impressions “The Two Towers” features. That doesn’t mean it is bad. In the contrary: It is cinema to my liking. The sort that makes the screen explode.” Read more HERE.
LIGHTS OUT ENTERTAINMENT:
“The Two Towers as a film was absolutely amazing. Any fan of the books as well of the first movie will be thoroughly engulfed by the story of The Two Towers. To compare this “middle movie” with that of another great in the world of trilogies, like The Empire Strikes Back is to say many wonderful things, as Empire is hailed by many to be the greatest in the Star Wars saga.” Check it out,

THE HOT BUTTON (DAVID POLAND):
“There isn’t a lot more I really want to say about this film. It is a near-perfect piece of filmmaking. The map is, obviously, strong. And the work from Peter Jackson and his team is not only flawless, it is breaking through new barriers for the second year in a row.” Read more HERE.
SCREEN DAILY (MIKE GOODRIDGE):
“The second film in Peter Jackson’s trilogy of JRR Tolkien’s The Lord Of The Rings is one of the year’s best…The result is a thrilling, muscular entertainment which powers along intensely towards the climactic third film.” To read more,
A long time Tolkien fan, ‘Deep Elf’ at Xenite.org offers a mixed review about the film: “The final word from me is that you should definitely see ‘The Two Towers’. It’s more gritty and darker, and less fantastic in tone, than ‘The Fellowship of the Ring’. It’s a movie you do not want to miss, even if you only see it once.” Read it HERE.
