PG-13 | | Adventure, Drama, Fantasy
While Frodo and Sam edge closer to Mordor with the help of the shifty Gollum, the divided fellowship makes a stand against Sauron's new ally, Saruman, and his hordes of Isengard.
Voted number nineteen in Channel 4's (U.K.) "Greatest Family Films" (as a trilogy).
There will be no dawn... for men.
In the very first scene of the movie, the flashback from The Fellowship of the Ring, when Gandalf has his confrontation with the Balrog, Frodo yells "NO" before Gandalf falls, but in FOTR, Gandalf falls and then Frodo yells "NO".
Just like the previous "Lord of the Rings" movie, there are no opening credits after the title has been shown.
The scene where Faramir interrogates Gollum is slightly different between the two versions. In the theatrical version, he enters the room only after his men have beaten Gollum. In the extended edition, he is in the room during the abuse, but stands apart, not actually taking part in it himself, before telling them to stop.
