Review: Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

Well, Nikki and I finally got to see the film we most wanted to see these past few months. To prepare, we watched Fellowship all over again last night then took advantage of the MTRCB passes and saw Two Towers at the Greenhills Theatre.

Briefly, this was a good film but needed severe editing. We enjoyed many aspects about it, no doubt covered by other writers, such as the technical brilliance of the cinematography and art direction. However, the pacing, acting and the aforementioned editing needed work.

I do need to cite the marvelous inventiveness as per Smeagol-Gollum. His scenes alone (especially his first long externalized soliloquy) elevate my ratings by two points.

Watch it, if you haven't yet.

Final Rating:

LOTR: The Two Towers - ******** (of 10)

(For reference, I rated gave the first film 9 stars.)
