The character of Erkenbrand, one of King Theoden's Army Lords in the novel, was left out of the movie. In the book, it was he and Gandalf who led the final charge of the Rohirrim against the Orc army, while Éomer is fighting the battle from within Helm's Deep, alongside King Theoden, Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli. In the movie, Éomer is sent away early on, and it is he who secures the victory against the Uruk-Hai together with Gandalf. See more »
When Éomer and company ambush the Uruk-hai, we see Pippin as he is almost trampled by a horse. When the shot cuts to Pippin, his arms are unbound and free as he moves to defend himself. When he rolls away, however, his hands are bound. See more »
The Extended Edition DVD has the listing of the Lord Of The Rings Fan Club members, simliar to Extended Edition of The Fellowship Of the Rings. See more »
The scene where Faramir interrogates Gollum is slightly different between the two versions. In the theatrical version, he enters the room only after his men have beaten Gollum. In the extended edition, he is in the room during the abuse, but stands apart, not actually taking part in it himself, before telling them to stop. See more »
Peter Jackson truly outdid himself when creating the Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring and he fails to disappoint us in the 2nd part of the Trilogy. The Two Towers shows us that he is not a one-hit wonder, like so many directors are. I actually think that The Two Towers reaches the same level as the Fellowship of the Ring, and sometimes even surpasses it.
This film is the biggest film in the trilogy. What do I mean by that? Well this film has so many things going like the amazing Battle of Helms Deep. Frodo and Sam journey to Mount Doom, to destroy the Ring. But the one who's leading them through the way is Gollum, he looks so creepy and realistic, that he doesn't feel disconnected from us. A powerful performance by Andy Serkis as Gollum, he should of been nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.
The Best part of the film, is quite easily and everyone knows it the ending. The ending of the battle of Helm's Deep is quite breathtaking, and as Gandalf the White comes in the distance with another army to defeat the Orcs. When Treebeard and his army of Entz tear down Isengard, the destruction and the battle is so immense in size, that you truly have to see to believe.
In size and scale, Peter Jackson has truly redefined the word "epic" and he also pays attention to the small things that truly elevate this movie from great to amazing. I definitely recommend this film to everyone, but you really should watch the first movie to truly understand what's going on.
