[after seeing the torn-down forest around Isengard]
Saruman! A wizard should know better!
There is no curse in Elvish, Entish, or the tongues of men for this treachery.
Look, the trees! They're moving!
Where are they going?
They have business with the Orcs. My business is with Isengard tonight, with rock and stone.

In the extended edition, the scene where Frodo and Sam are first captured by Faramir uses a different take. In the theatrical version, after giving the order to bind their hands, Faramir turns and walks away from camera. In the extended edition, after his extended dialogue and order to bind the hobbits, he walks towards camera. 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).
