In the movie, Lord Elrond dispatches a squadron of Elves to Helm's Deep, to assist the Rohan soldiers. This doesn't happen in the book, since the Elves are occupied with defending their own homes from attacks by Sauron's forces at the same time. However, the decision was made to include Elves in this movie, to show their sacrifices, and avoid the suggestion that the Elves leave all the fighting in the movies to humans. See more »
After Aragorn's line "You have some skill with a blade," the sword spin is clearly sped up to appear fast. The people and fire in the background move much too fast, looking like Keystone Cops. See more »
Captain Faramir, you have shown your quality, sir - the very highest.
The Shire must truly be a great realm, Master Gamgee, where gardeners are held in high honor.

When Frodo, Sam, Gollum and Faramir arrive at Osgiliath in the Extended Edition, Minas Tirith can be seen in the background. It was removed from the theatrical version to avoid confusion with Helm's Deep. See more »
What a great movie. Through the first movie, we already had the whole story set-up, so in The Two Towers in really pick's up.
There is not one thing about this movie that I would change. Maybe one or two of the extra scenes could have been cut out, but they only are there to lead into the sequel.
This movie really shows the wonders of CGI in full effect. And isn't afraid to use them. The battle of Helm's Deep is a blend of live action and CGI(computer generated imagery), which works so perfectly and just comes across as astounding.
The scene's with Aragorn being lost, were not too bad. The lead up into the scene's were great. The scene's show the connection between Aragorn and his horse who finds him near the river.
The further downfall of Frodo as the ring slowly takes hold of him is very well done. Along with this, we also get to see the first more of the attempts of Sam to help, and protect Frodo.
The breaking into different stories was a cool idea. Showing the progression of the characters from the first film to the second. Orlando Bloom's character is givin a larger part. And he proves to have much to do with the plot this time.
All in all, this is a fantastic movie. Rivaled only by The Return of the King.
