This paper examines the special visual effects of the movie based on J.R.R. Tolkien's famous novel. It also compares it to the first movie in the series and claims that this movie was weaker than the predecessor. The writer also examines the characters in the movie and what they are meant to represent.

From the Paper:

"The visual effects in all were perhaps most important to this film in that they invoked a total fantasy setting. The frequent panoramic shots of vividly fantastic landscapes served to pull the viewer into the world and define the reality of movie. A large part of the conflict in this films seems to be between the rightfulness of nature (as exemplified by the Hobbits) and the wrongfulness of technology and pollution (as exemplified by Mordor and the Orcs). But this isn't gotten across in the story-line itself, so one relies on the views of the respective armies and environments to get that idea across. For example, a minor visual attention to detail can be seen if one looks closely at the faces of the orcs. (Many pictures are available in galleries online if the movie moves too quickly to catch this) Many orcs have metal rivets and metal parts in their skin and scalps, subtly pointing out that they represent all the technological perversion of nature."
