The legend continues, like TV sensation Kung Fu: The Legend Continues.  Second acts are always more interesting because the real conflict comes into play.  Also, I was pleased with the level of detail (and precious comic relief) that Jackson preserves in this installment.  But I think the movies in general are just less subtle and interesting than the book. For example, in the first one Boromir is supposed to be corrupt almost from the beginning — and in this one his brother Faramir seems petty and weak the whole time, as if all the men besides Aragorn are pretty much worthless.  Still, the Gollum effects and pretty much everything else works well. Worth checking out.
