REGION 2 DVD (U.K Release)
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (Two Disc Theatrical Edition) [DVD] 
Very Good Condition
With The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, the focus of
Tolkien's epic story moves from the fantastic to the mythic, from magic
and monsters towards men and their deeds, as the expanding panorama of
Middle-earth introduces us to the Viking-like Riders of Rohan and the
men of Gondor. Which is not to say that Peter Jackson's three-hour
second instalment doesn't have its fair share of amazing new
creatures--here we meet Wargs, Oliphaunts and winged Nazgul, to name
three--just that the film is concerned more with myth-making on a heroic
scale than the wide-eyed wonder of The Fellowship of the Ring.
There's no time for recapitulation, as a host of new characters are
introduced in rapid succession. In Rohan we meet the initially moribund
King Theoden (Bernard Hill); his treacherous advisor Grima Wormtongue
(Brad Dourif); his feisty niece Eowyn (Miranda Otto); and his
strong-willed nephew Eomer (Karl Urban). Faramir (David Wenham), brother
of Boromir, is the other principal human addition to the cast. The
hobbits, though, encounter the two most remarkable new characters, both
of whom are digitally generated: in Fangorn Forest, Merry and Pippin are
literally carried away by Treebeard, a dignified old Ent; while Frodo
and Sam capture the duplicitous Gollum, whose fate is inextricably
intertwined with that of the Ring.
The film stands or falls with Gollum. If the characterisation had gone the way of Jar Jar Binks, The Two Towers
would have been ruined, notwithstanding all the spectacle and grandeur
of the rest. But Gollum is a triumph, a tribute both to the computer
animators and the motion-captured performance of Andy Serkis: his
"dialogues", delivered theatre-like direct to the audience, are a
masterstroke. Here and elsewhere Jackson is unafraid to make changes to
the story line, bringing Frodo and Sam to Osgiliath, for example, or
tipping Aragorn over a cliff. Yet the director's deft touch always seems
to add not detract from Tolkien's vision. Just three among many
examples: Aragorn's poignant dreams of Arwen (Liv Tyler); Gimli's comic
repartee even in the heat of battle; and the wickedly effective siege
weapons of the Uruk-Hai (which signify both Saruman's mastery and his
perversion of technology). The climactic confrontation at Helm's Deep
contains images the like of which have simply never been seen on film
before. Almost unimaginably, there's so much more still to come in the Return of the King.
