Eto writes, “Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers” was released in India yesterday (March 28th 2003). It opened in 7 theatres in my city, and that’s a pretty big release. I went for the evening show and the hall was packed to the brim (more than 500 people). Lots and lots of claps and whistles during Legolas’s mounting of the horse, his slide on the shield, Eomer’s arrival at Helms Deep, the charge of the Ents, and of course Gollum was the favorite. The last hour of the movie was full of claps, whistles and cries. IMO, a much better response than FoTR. May be because of all the action, the war and … Gollum.”
