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

The strongest of the three - a perfect balance of relational, emotional, and plot-driven drama. Much more subtle than the others, with Andy Serkis and Bernard Hill stealing scenes left and right and powerful performances also by Viggo Mortensen, Miranda Otto, and Sir Ian McKellen. A beautiful climax that still makes me weep after 10 years of viewing.
