Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Spectacular in every sense of the word, even if you don' t know an Orc from a Uruk-Hai. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Nov 19, 2013

Fresh: A thrilling work of film craft. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: What's remarkable is how immediately, after a full year, The Two Towers seizes your attention, and how urgently it holds you through three seamless, action-packed hours. – David Ansen, Newsweek, Nov 12, 2014

Fresh: Part two is more a straight-ahead action flick, substituting brawn and brawling for the pastoral radiance of the first film. – David Germain, Associated Press, Nov 19, 2013

I don't know what is wrong with the people who don't like these movies! They are the most spectacular and majestic movies I have ever seen!!!!! I like ROTK best but the Two Towers is a close second. The story line is awesome, the action is great, the scenery amazing, and all the costumes and sets and props and everything- I can't imagine how much work this took! BEST MOVIES EVER!!!!!! Totally worth your money!

The way they were meant to be seen!

I hate it when people rate these movies because of being in HD or not. Complain to ITunes and the producers, not the movie download. It gives the movie a bad rating while we all know these movies are the greatest masterpieces of Tolkien's world ever made. 4 hours and 30 minutes, so what? That's awesome and is how they were meant to be seen. I love see films and every fan will be glad to have these movies on their iPads, iPods, and computers forever. Thank you iTunes, thank you New Line, and THANK YOU PETER JACKSON!

I honestly don't know what is wrong with the person that said this was the worst. This whole series is great. I loved the movies just as much as the books. I can not wait for the June 28th. I have been waiting for the Extended Blu-rays for a loong time!
