It kept me engaged the whole way through EXCEPT for one bit... Aragorn's flashback's to Arwen. No, movie, really. I REALLY don't care about this romantic subplot.
The Rodent
They must protect the Ring from this creature and find a way to destroy the ring at the same time. Meanwhile, Merry and Pippin have also been seperated from the group and captured by the Uruk Hai.
It is a terrific slice of acting from Serkis as he just brings both vastly contrasting sides of the character vividly to the fore, and it's perfectly filmed by Jackson.
