The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
works more slowly than The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring as it works to establish the next foundation for the final film in the series, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. But the movie outperforms itself with its presentation of some of the best fighting scenes in the industry for scope and magnitude. The Oliphants and the walking trees create a visual wonderland that serves to establish this movie as a classic epic entertainment piece by Director Peter Jackson. Bravo, Encore for one of the best movies released in a century.
