The Journey continues.

Frodo and Sam, the leftover heroes of the Fellowship of the Ring, continue on their way towards Mordor where they hope to destroy the Ring in the fires of Mount Doom. In the Dead Marshes they have a fateful encounter with Gollum, who used to possess the One Ring before it fell into Bilbo's hands.

Meanwhile Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli are in pursuit of the party of Orcs and Uruk-Hai that have kidnapped Merry and Pippin. The two hobbits, however, are able to free themselves and escape into Fangorn Forest, where they team up with a representative of an ancient race of Middle-Earth, which might be of help in the fight against Saruman.

After meeting an old friend, Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli continue to Rohan, in hope of finding allies against the Dark Lord. But Saruman has invaded Rohan and controls the mind of the King Theoden. After breaking the spell, Theoden leads his people to the stronghold of Helm's Deep. Saruman's army is headed the same way – the battle for Middle-Earth begins.

Spectacular entertainment. (The Movie Report)

To say that this is a great movie would be an understatement. (Cinema Crazed)

A pitch-perfect second act, full of dark wonder and the slow, pounding pulse of Aragorn's unflagging hope. (Metro Times)
