The Lord Of The Rings – The Two Towers
All will be sacrificed; All will be lost; Unless all unite against evil.
The Fellowship has been broken. Boromir (Sean Bean) is dead, Frodo Baggins
(Elijah Wood) and Samwise Gamgee (Sean Astin) have gone to Mordor alone to
destroy the One Ring, Merry (Dominic Monaghan) and Pippin (Billy Boyd) have been
captured by the Uruk-hai, and Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen), Legolas (Orlando
Bloom), and Gimli (John Rhys-Davies) have made friends of the Rohan, a race of
humans that are in the path of the upcoming war, led by its aging king, oden
The two towers between Mordor and Isengard, Barad and Orthanc, have united in
their lust for destruction. The corrupt wizard Saruman (Christopher Lee), under
the power of the Dark Lord Sauron, and his slimy assistant, Wormtongue (Brad
Dourif), have created a grand Uruk-hai army bent on the destruction of Man and
The rebellion against Sauron is building up and will be led by Gandalf the
White (Sir Ian McKellen), who was thought to be dead after the Balrog captured
him. One of the Ring's original bearers, the creature Gollum (Andy Serkis), has
tracked Frodo and Sam down in search of his ‘precious’, but is captured by
the Hobbits and used as a way to lead them to Mt. Doom.
The War of the Ring has now begun.
