The crucial question about Peter Jacksons adaptation of JRR Tolkiens trilogy seems to be Is it just for Tolkien fans or a general audience I went to see it with my mum whos never read any of Tolkiens books she liked The Fellowship of the Ring last year and liked the Two Towers even more but then she has her own cinematic agenda based largely on sets costumes plus she loves horses As for the story it was basically good vs evil again she noted that its easy to tell one from another the bad guys are hideously ugly the good guys arent I read the trilogy over 5 years ago and confess I dont remember most of the second book so if Jackson made lots of changes he could have fooled me I remembered certain plot details from Ralph Bakshis animated version So I knew in advance more or less how Jacksons Two Towers would begin and end the rest was up for grabs By and large it didnt grab me but talk about money well spent The physical authenticity from last years movie is if anything exceeded here and as for Gollum the character alone deserves an Oscar Can a computer-generated character be said to steal a movie Its almost too good I couldnt take my eyes off Gollum even when he was off in the corner of the screen I forgot the various heroic events occurring elsewhere In as much as I already know how the story ends the warped humanity of Gollum afforded a poignancy to what I know will occur that I never would have anticipated If theres a tragic figure in this tale Gollums it I found the Two Towers quite uninvolving in an emotional sense Theres nothing here remotely as gripping as the death of Boromir in Part I which made me cry each of the three times I saw it in the cinema
