Extracts from this document...

Introduction

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. The action/adventure/fantasy film starts off where film one finished: Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli are in pursuit of the Uruk-Hai who has taken Merry and Pippin hostage, whilst Sam and Frodo struggle onwards to Mordor with their guide Gollum.

And it uses a jaw-dropping amount of detail and accuracy which give it a certain wow-factor which brings Middle Earth to life.
