The Lord of the Rings: Two Towers Film Summary
Below you will find an overview of the spoilers.
Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood) wakes up from a nightmare in which he sees Gandalf (Ian McKellen) fighting Balrok in Moria. Frodo’s reality is worse than his dreams. He and Samwise Gange (Sean Astin) get lost in Emyn Muil, near Mordor. To make matters worse, they are haunted by Gollum (Andy Serkis), who wants to kill them and take the One Ring, the ring of power in Frodo’s possession. Frodo and Sam captured Gollum, but instead of killing the old Hobbit, Frodo takes pity on him and makes Gollum swear to take them to Mordor to destroy the Ring.
Meanwhile, Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen), Legolas (Orlando Bloom) and Gimli (John Rhys-Davies) chase the Uruk-Hai party through the land of Rohan to rescue their Hobbit companions Meriadoc the Merry (Dominic Monaghan) and Pippin Took (Billy Boyd). The Uruk-hai are ambushed by a group of exiled Rohirrhum on Rohan horses, allowing the hobbits to escape into the mysterious Fangorn forest. Aragorn’s party meets the Rohirrim and their leader Eomer (Karl Urban), who tell them about the ambush. Aragorn leads his group to Fangorn to find his missing comrades. They don’t find the Hobbits, but the trio find the resurrected Gandalf, who has returned as Gandalf the White to save Middle-earth.
Gandalf leads the trio to the capital of Rohan, Edoras. Once there, they discover that the king of Rohan, Theoden (Bernard Hill), is under the control of the evil sorcerer Saruman (Christopher Lee). Gandalf casts a spell that banishes Saruman from Theoden’s body and restores the king to his former state. Aragorn prevents the king from killing Saruman’s accomplice, the grimaworm (Brad Dourif), who escapes from Edoras and returns to Saruman’s castle in Isengard. Gandalf tells the king that Saruman plans to send his Uruk-hai army to destroy the men and women of Rohan. Theoden orders his men to evacuate the city and go to the fortress of Helmsdeep.
Gandalf doesn’t think Theoden’s plan is enough and tries to find the exiled Eomer and his followers, who have been exiled by the possessed king. On his way to Helmsdiepte, Aragorn befriends Theoden’s niece, Eowyn, who begins to fall in love with the Ranger. A convoy of civilians from Rohan is attacked by a group of military orcs. During the battle, Aragorn falls from a high cliff into the river. Everyone thinks Aragorn is dead, but the Ranger survives and goes to the depths of Helm just behind Theoden’s group. On the way he saw Saruman’s great army heading for Helmsdeep.
Meanwhile, in Rivendell, Aragorn’s true love, Arwen Undomiel (Liv Tyler), tells his father Elrond (Hugo Weaving) that Aragorn will not return. He reminds his daughter that if she stays in Middle-earth, she will survive thousands of years in Aragorn and face an eternity of loneliness and sorrow. Elrond asks his daughter to travel with the rest of his people to the distant shores of Valinor. Arwen reluctantly agrees to go along with it. Elrond is contacted by Galadriel of Lothlorian (Cate Blanchett), who convinces the Elf Lord to honour his alliance with the people. Elrond sends an army of Elves to help Theoden and Aragorn to Helm’s Deep.
In the forest of Fangorn, Jolly and Pippin meet an entrance called Treebeard (John Rhys-Davies). The Graft, which looks like a living tree, brings two Hobbits to the Graft Council to decide whether the Ents and their indictments, the Trees, will participate in the war for Middle-earth. The council decides not to get involved in the war, to the great sorrow of Merry and Pippin.
Tree Beard takes Merry and Pippin to the edge of the forest so they can return to the Shire. But Pippin outsmarted Treebeard and took them to Isengard. Once there, Tree Beard witnessed the deforestation caused by Saruman’s military actions. An outraged Graft calls upon other Ents to come to Isengard to defeat Isengard. The Ents, together with Merry and Pippin, defeat Saruman and his orcs and capture the evil wizard in his castle.
When they return to Helm’s Deep, Saruman’s forces arrive and Theoden prepares for battle. The King and his allies are outnumbered. The troops are engaged in a tremendous nocturnal battle in the rain. Theoden’s troops managed to stop the great Orc army until the Uruk-hai broke through the outer wall with explosives. After crossing the barrier, the Uruk-hai begin to take power from the king, killing Elf Commander Haldir (Craig Parker). Human and Elvish forces are retreating into Helm’s depths. Aragorn convinces Theoden to ride his horses one last time to face the enemy. At dawn they continue their attack while Gandalf returns with Éomer and his troops. With reinforcements, Theoden’s troops have won. Although they are grateful for the victory, Gandalf warns them all that Sauron will take revenge.
Meanwhile, Gollum Frodo and Sam lead through the Walk of the Dead to the Black Gate. Gollum, however, advised them to enter Mordor by a different route. Shortly after, Frodo and Sam are captured by the Ithil forces led by Faramir (David Wenham), Boromir’s younger brother (Sean Bean). Frodo helps Faramir Gollum to save the old caller. Gollum, who sincerely helped the two hobbits in the beginning, feels betrayed by Frodo. Faramir discovers that Frodo has the Ring of Power and tries to bring Frodo back to his father Denethor (John Noble), the steward of Gondor.
They pass the Gondorian city of Osgiliath, which is besieged by Sauron’s troops. Frodo tries to explain to Faramir the true nature of the Ring, and Sam explains that Boromir was driven mad by his power. Frodo falls under the power of the Ring and is almost captured by a Nazi. Yet Sam saves Frodo, who almost killed him in exchange. Sam reminds Frodo that they fight for all the good things left in Middle-earth. Impressed by Frodo and Sam’s determination, Faramir lets them go with Gollum so they can continue their search. Once away from Osgiliath, Gollum Frodo decides to betray and fetch the Ring by leading the hobbits to Shelob, a giant spider.
