HKFanatic's rating of the film The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

This would probably be my second favorite in the trilogy if we could just edit out Peter Jackson's ill-advised attempts at humor, like the Gimli short jokes and Legolas surfing down a flight of stairs. Otherwise, the battle at Helm's Deep is as good as action gets in Lord of the Rings: not as epic in scope as the battle in RotK but much more intimate and personal of a fight, and therefore more exciting to watch.
