Aragorn: Legolas! What do your elf eyes see?
Legolas: The Uruks turn north-east. They're taking the hobbits to Isengard!

Sam: Face it, Mr. Frodo. We're lost. I don't think Gandalf meant for us to come this way.
Frodo: Gandalf didn't mean for a lot of things to happen, Sam.

Pippin (to Merry); I had the loveliest dream last night! There was this large barrel full of pipe-weed, and we smoked all of it. And then you were sick.

Legolas; Final count: forty-two.
Gimli; Forty-two? Oh, that's not bad for a pointy-eared, elvish princling. I myself am sitting pretty on forty-three.

Merry; He doesn't look too happy, does he?
Pippin; Not too happy at all, Merry.
Merry; Still, I suppose the view is nice from up there.
Pippin; Oh, yes. It's a quality establishment. I hear the staff are very good. What are you doing?
Merry; Nothing. The world's back to normal. That's all.
Pippin; No it isn't. I'm starving.
Merry; Good luck trying to find anything decent to eat in this place. Probably only dead rats and moldy bread. Saruman's store room!
Pippin; I don't believe it!
Merry; It can't be!
Pippin; It is!
Merry; Long-bottom leaf. Finest pipe weed in the South Farthing.
Pippin; It's perfect! One barrel each! Wait! Do you think we should share it with Treebeard?
Merry; Share it? No, no. Dead plant and all that. Don't think he'd understand. Could be a distant relative.
Pippin; Oh I get it. Don't be hasty.
Merry; Exactly.

Oh my gosh the part when Legolas, Strider(Aragorn) and the dwarf had this contest on who could kill the most was awesome =D Love this series...

Great movie, special effects on a grand scale, and simply enjoyable for what it is. Lots of true LOTR fans love it, while many others felt disappointed by it...which is somewhat understandable considering the fact that NO MOVIE will / can ever be 100% true to its novel-book version.
Having said that, enjoy the movie for what it is. Better yet, I'd highly recommend putting the standard movie version aside and seeking out the "extended" versions of all three LOTR movies. At nearly 4 hours each (totalling around 12 hours in the trilogy), you'll definitely get more insight into the storyline, each character, etc. as director Peter Jackson had originally wanted to be shown on the big screen (the MPAA refused his original versions in theaters due to the length of each movie, thus, so much crucial material was forced to be cut out of it). Get the "extended" editions of all three LOTR movies...you won't regret it.

Very disappointing movie. While the book LOTR is excellent this movie is insipid.

This is what i have to say about this:

AWESOME!
This is my all time favorite. I really like Legolas…He's funny in this one.

After watching the whole trilogy, I'd say that this one is my least favorite. But I still loved it! :) It must have been tantalizing when they first released the Two Towers to wait for The Return of the King. Glad I didn't have to!

This film, series and genre, geared for and supported by a young audience, has been overrated.

I enjoyed this movie more than the first, but I am not sure why. However, Gollum got to be a bit much (way too much) with his tortured soul and that at the end made the movie drag, and took away some of the magic.

THIS DISC IS DAMAGED and virtually UNPLAYABLE.

Fantastic movie! Amazing battle sequences! Jackson did a good job bringing the characters from the book into the movie. even though this is one of my favorite movies, I still like the books so much better! :)

Amazing movie. Legolas is awesome. Great battles scenes. A must see for action movie fans.
