Extracts from this document...


The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers Director Peter Jackson has done it again with his second masterpiece from the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The Two Towers is just as powerful, dramatic, action filled, and precisely one minute longer than last years block buster film The Fellowship of the Ring.

And it uses a jaw-dropping amount of detail and accuracy which give it a certain wow-factor which brings Middle Earth to life. No doubt next year I'll be saying the exact same for The Return of the King but I await it with much anticipation and excitement. By John Mason ...read more.
