So here’s the more in-depth critique for The Two Towers.

Cons:
- Character development is weaker in this movie than the first, due primarily to Peter Jackson assuming you saw the first and didn’t need as much character development.
- Fewer truly emotional moments than the first (I cried less often, yes)

Pros:
- More coherently driven plot focused toward a better climax
- Less redundancy than Fellowship (no more walk, fight, walk, fight)
- The fight at Helm’s Deep? Holy COW.
- The opening sequence – BEST OPENING SEQUENCE EVER
- Did I mention Helm’s Deep? Shadowfax, Rohirrim, Holy COW.
