Extended version is only for the 'real' fans otherwise I'm sure the 2 hours in the standard version is quite enough. Just a word of warning this movie (the two towers SE) is split across 2 DVDs so I wouldn't watch unless you have both...
The Two Towers is the second part of the Lord of the Rings saga and, in my opinion, is the best movie in the series. The portrayal of the batlle of Helm's Deep is one of the best filmed battle scenes... Read more in any movie involving middle ages style warfare.
Mixed in with the fighting is some subtle humour, some of it from the book (Gimli and Legolas trying to kill more enemies than each other - highlighting the great friendship these two unlikely allies have established) and some homour introduced specifically for the movie (Aragorn 'tossing' Gimli into a battle).
As much as possible the producers stick to the book although they chose to end the movie several scenes before the ending of the book - a fact that was probably partly responsible for the major editing that goes on in the last movie The Return of the King.
Like all the Lord of the Rings movies I recommend this to anyone interested in JRR Tolkien's work.
Didnt enjoy number two as much as one or three, but its still a good movie
what a wonderful mind and imagination peter jackson must have to create and inspire the world of lord of the rings... it is but one part of a brilliant movie to take you to another land so far away...
I preferred the standard version to the extended version. Although the extended version provides a varied storyline, it significantly increases the spaces of time before you see those renowned action... Read more and special effect scenes that Peter Jackson is famous for.
This is the first time ever that I am seeing the footage in an extended version of the movie. All I thought was that the movie was 4 hours long instead of 3.
