The Ents are a bit dopey but, overall, this is a great film.

The lord of the rings trilogy is a bit overrated in particular but this one is soooooo overrated. It's not even a real moving, doesn't even have a real beginning nor ending (the same goes for bttf 2)

The point of the film is that it dosen't have a beginning or end. It's the middle chapter designed to strengthen the characters and flesh out more of the world, and the film does this masterfully with the uses of flashbacks and structurally editing to really give a backstory to the world and make it feel more alive. Also if the battle of Helms Deep isn't epic, I don't know what is

Masterpiece. No other ways around it. The Battle of Helm's Deep is the best movie battle of all time together with The Battle of the Pelennor Fields from The Return of the King - hands down.

As a film, I think this is the best out of the three. (While FOTR is my favourite). Peter Jackson made a story without a beginning or an end work and showcased how epic filmmaking truly is.

Ok I lied, I wasn't going to comment on this since my comment on the first movie was so long, but, anyway. I liked it, I didn't love it. It felt long for the sake of being long at times. It could have done good with some better editing.

In my opinion, it's easily the worst of the trilogy, but that's nothing to be ashamed of, as this trilogy remains possibly the best, with each film considered a masterpiece and close to the other two in terms of quality.

I have only seen the first two films so far, but I definitely thought this was the better of the two even though the first one is also very good.

The Two Towers succeeds like few other middle installments do in serving as both a satisfying benchmark that ties the introduction and conclusion to this trilogy together.

Definitely the weakest of the trilogy, but still a great movie
