Today, we take a visit back to the one of the best loved epic fantasy stories of all time in the film form of the second book of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. This movie was far better than the first movie in the series, The Lord of the Rings : The Fellowship of the Ring. There was far more action once the boys split up, each little group taking their own course, but not of their own choice. Frodo and Sam are passing through Emyn Muil, looking for an southeastern route to get directly to Mordor. Merry and Pippin have been taken captive by Saruman’s Uruk-hai, and are heading to Isengard. Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas are tracking down the Uruk-hai. Boromir was lost to madness and finally to some massive piercing of Uruk-hai arrows in the first film, and Gandalf disappeared when fighting the balrog of Morgoth in Moria. Saruman is looking to expand his influence over the nations of men in the southern part of Middle Earth, starting with the plains of Rohan. Luck is holding with Merry and Pippin, as Saruman knows one of the hobbits is carrying the One Ring, but he does not know which one, nor that the Ring is with Frodo. He tells his Uruk-hai to bring the hobbits back, unharmed and unspoiled. This gives Pippin the chance he needs to take advantage of Aragorn’s ranger skills to leave mark to show him where they are heading. Pippin matures much in this movie from being the spoiled, bumbling prankster heir to the ruling house of the Shire to becoming a real leader. Merry becomes quite a motivator when dealing with Treebeard and the other Ents in regards to fighting against Saruman. It is when they come to Fanghorn Forest that they learn that Gandalf survived his fight with the balrog, and has somehow “upgraded” his wizardly status.
