What an awesome achievement!,

This review is from: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (Two Disc Theatrical Edition) [DVD]  (DVD)
In one word.......AWESOME! This movie is the second best film I have ever seen!(The first being The fellowship of the ring). Peter jackson riding high on the success of the Fellowship, delivers again in the best film of 2002!
Just a look at the cast-list tells you that this film is going to be something extra-special, every character is fantastically portrayed by the actor/actress chosen to play them. The locations are magnificent (New Zealand is now high on my list of places I want to visit)the majestically sweeping helicam shots of mountains and plains and valleys are an awe inspiring reminder of the first film, watching Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli running along the top of a mountain and knowing it is real rather than CGI is fantastic!
The battle scenes are beyond belief! the warg attack is great and the battle of Helm's deep is jaw-droppingly incredible. Also good is the ent's attack on Isengard.
None of the feeling of the first movie has been lost and as ever the costumes, make-up and special effects remain second-to-none.
There is so much that is good about this movie I could go on forever, see it if you haven't already, in fact buy it even if you haven't seen it, you won't regret it I promise!
Peter jackson is an absolute genius and also are Fran walsh and Phillipa boyens (who work just as hard but never seem to get a mention) I can't wait for the extended edition!
