The second film of The Lord of the Rings trilogy by Peter Jackson. This film fully and clearly demonstrates the intention and professionalism of Jackson in the field of director of the epic works of John R. R. Tolkien.
This is a follow-up story about hobbits, tasked to destroy the One Ring in the fires of Mount Doom in Mordor. Having lost Gandalf the Grey fell into the abyss, and Boromir killed by orcs, Fellowship of the Ring falls into three parts.
Frodo and Sam continue their dangerous route to Mordor. At night, they have captured Gollum chased them. Gollum is a native of the river people, similar in origin to the hobbits. This people lived on a shore of the River Anduin. One day in the hands of Gollum fell the One Ring. It subdued his soul and changed his appearance drastically. Gollum’s entire life is a search of the ring and desire to possess it.
Merry and Pippin get into clutches of the Uruk-hai, obeying Saruman.
Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas in search of the missing hobbits arrive in the kingdom of Rohan. The mind of the king of Rohan is subordinated to the will of Saruman, who intended to destroy Rohan. However, a well-timed appearance of Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas and Gandalf the White fundamentally changes the situation for the better.
At the same time, Gollum persuades Frodo and Sam do not go through the impenetrable Black Gates and leads them to bypass, but he is going to kill them.
It should be noted that some aspects of the book were not drawn in the movie. But, honestly speaking, it is absolutely impossible to convey in the movie every detail of Tolkien’s novels. So the director did the right thing by adapting the text of the book to a script. This movie develops Jackson’s personal cinematic universe, the one he began with «the Fellowship of the ring».
This is an extraordinary film, which is an original threshold to the next, final movie. It is filled with unique music, landscapes, characters and the spirit of The Lord of the Rings series. The excellent movie that should be watched desirable with the first and third parts of the whole trilogy.
