Quickbeam, from [[TheOneRing.net]] was at the press screening in NYC.
The Two Towers is a huge, spectacular movie that differs in tone from its predecessor. There are fewer moments of relaxing wonderment. Instead, PJ brings the story up high to thrill you, then brings his focus back to grief and heartache. It is an unusual thing for such a big time blockbuster movie. I sense the risk he is taking here. The audience that comes in for just a pleasant diversion is in for quite a different ride.
It sounds like it has all the depth of the book. I can’t wait!!!!!
