The design for Gollum took over one hundred maquette sculptures, and over one thousand drawings to get right. See more »

[Aragorn and Gimli are looking at the Uruk-hai, but are separated from them by a gap]
Oh come on, we can take 'em.
It's a long way.
I cannot jump the distance, you'll have to toss me.

Don't tell the Elf.
Not a word.

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. See more »
I considered The Fellowship of the Ring to be one of the greatest movies ever. This one is better!
The scenery is marvelous, the animations great, and the story superb. This episode strays further from the books when it comes to the unfolding of events, but I feel that it stays closer in atmosphere and realism; the nazgûls are now the fear-inspiring creatures they should be. Gollum, excellently implemented, even becomes more realistic then I remember him from the books, not to mention other attempts to portray him. His schizophrenic monologues are among the highlights of the movie.
The major drawback is once again the apparent incapability of the dark-side creatures. Aragorn with fellows can ride back and forth among them unhurt, while the Uruk-Hai fall in large numbers just for being nearby. Though I enjoy many of the jokes made at Gimli's expense, this still is another thing I partly dislike. Gimli sure is no clown in the books.
I rate the movie 9/10 (my highest so far).
