Debated Goofs - Commented Goofs - Corrected Goofs - Explained Goofs
  • (Revealing mistakes) Right near the end, when Frodo and Sam are talking about the pains of this quest, there is a close-up on the face of Frodo: and of his contact lenses. Did they have those in Middle Earth? - dischord
  • (Continuity) When Theodin's son comes in wounded, there's a big gash on the left side of his face. When you see him after he dies, the gash is completely gone with no trace of it left. I know the wound had time to heal, but with a gash that big it would have left a scab or scar at least. (Theatre) - Alex
  • (Continuity) When the Urk-hai carrying Merry and Pippin stop to rest, we can see that Merry has a cut above his right eyebrow. Later on in the forest, Merry has a lesser cut above his left eyebrow, but no cut or even a trace of a cut above his right! (Theatre) - Alex
  • (Factual errors) When Gimli, Aragon and Legolas were running after the orcs, they were of the same height. But when they were standing behind the top of the castle wall before the battle with orcs, Gimli cannot see pass the wall and Legolas was tall enough and made fun of Gimli for being small. - babygal000
  • (Continuity) Merry's scar changes sides on his face from right to left to right again. (Theatre) - Eowyn
  • (Audio/visual unsynchronised) In Insengard, when Saruman tells warg rider leader to send them out, you can see the leader's mouth move, but no words come. (Theatre) - Eowyn
  • (Audio/visual unsynchronised) After 3 hunters meet Eomer, one shot shows the group. Eomer moves his mouth, but no words come. (Theatre) - Eowyn
  • (Plot holes) At HD: Aragorn yells "ladders!" in Elvish. Gimli understands him even though he DOESN'T KNOW ELVISH. (Theatre) - Eowyn
  • (Continuity) At Osgiliath, you see Sam has tears on his face right before Faramir speaks to the hobbits. In the next scene, the tears are gone. There are a lot more, but this could take forever... I'll leave them for y'all to find. (Theatre) - Eowyn
  • (Revealing mistakes/anachronisms) The part where Eyowen cries after Theoden is better and she is hugging Haim you can see her mascara is starting to clump and is about to run and I don't think they had mascara back then. - icki rice
  • (Continuity) In the scene when Gandalf is coming in to free the king of Gondor from Saruman's grasp with Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimili, watch his staff. One time it is facing up, then sideways, then up again, and it keeps doing that when the scene keeps cutting back to them. - Joel
  • (Continuity) There was a time when Merry and pippin were conversing together ether in the battle scene with the orcs and men or when they were trying to run away from the orc before they met the end. Well, what I found was quite interesting. Didn't either Merry or Pippin spit onto the ground a pendant that hooked their cloaks together for Aragorn to later find? Well, when the two conversed, they both had that pendant on, then Merry had it on, then he didn't but Pippin did, then Merry did again! - Joel
  • (Continuity) In one scene (I think it was when the troop came into the place where the king of Rohan lived, but I am not sure). Gandalf's White horse had a martegale on it. Then when the scene cuts back to them, he all of a sudden no longer has the martengale on it. - Joel
  • (Continuity) If you have not notice they flip the film in the two towers a few times, mainly in the forest, Legolas's stap to his quiver swiches two the right to left. Same as Aragorn's sheath, glove and ring, which should all stay on one side. - Legolas Greenleaf
  • (Continuity) The dialect is not maintained threw out the movie. - allies
  • (Factual errors) In the book, there were no elves at Helmsdeep (besides Legolas). Also, in the book, Merry and Pippin did not have to attempt to convince the Ents to attack Isengard. - PyRoPHiLe
  • (Revealing mistakes) In the scene when Gandalf, Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas enter the hall of King Theoden, in some shots, Ian McKellen is wearing a watch. (Theatre) - Iarroswen
  • (Continuity) When Gandalf enters the hall of King Theoden, it shows him hiding his staff and then it quickly changes to a shot with his back, and his staff is upright. The shot changes quickly again, and his staff is again down. (Theatre) - Iarroswen
  • (Continuity) Another mistake I saw was when Merry and Pippin are set down by the Uruk-Hai. Merry clearly has a cut over his right eye. But, in Fangorn forest, when the orc pulls Merry off of Treebeard, the cut is above Merry's left eye. In the next scene, it switches back to his right eye! (Theatre) - Iarroswen
  • (Revealing mistakes) Near the end of the movie when the Ents are attacking Isengard, Christopher Lee peers over the edge of a balcony. The scene is clearly run backwards, if you watch his hair it is obvious. (Theatre) - LOTRfan
  • (Audio/visual unsynchronised) When Legolas, Aragorn, and Gimli are surrounded by Rohan Riders, Eomer says "Theoden no longer ....even his own kin." In the next shot of the whole group Eomer's mouth is moving but there is no sound. (Theatre) - LOTRfan
  • (Continuity) In the LOTR: The Two Towers, Pippin clearly has shackles on him with Merry while the orcs and Urukai have them hostage.In one scene Pippin falls to the ground and it looks like a horse is going to step on him. When he is screaming, you suddenly notice that the shackles are gone, but when he moves at the last second, they're magically back on again. - Lindsay
  • (Revealing mistakes) In the seen where they are sending the villagers to the caves, in the background you can see an extra(villager) lean against a stalactite then quickly stop, because its starts to rock back and forth! (Theatre) - Destroga
  • (Anachronisms) In the part where Eowyn is crying tears of joy after Theoden is no longer under a spell you can tell her mascara is about to run! But I'm wondering, was there mascara back then? It doesn't seem like women wear lipstick or any thing. (Theatre) - .:eowyn:.
  • (Continuity) When the riders of rohan are attacking the orcs before they meet Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli and the horse is about to land on Merry or Pippin (I can't remember which), he separates his hands but later they cut their bounds, so how could he have separated his hands before? - doglover
  • When Legolas, Gimli and Aragorn meet Gandalf in Fangorn Forest, that's the name they call him by. He says Oh yes, that's what they used to call me. Wouldn't he remember that because he had previously met up with Merry and Pippin and that's the only name they called him? - joanie
  • (Factual errors) In the beginning, when Legolas, Gimli and Aragorn are searching for Merry and Pippin, he puts his ear to the ground and can hear that the urak-hai are one day ahead of them. Minutes later the Riders of Rohan appear and they weren't expecting them. If he can hear the enemy when it is so far away, why didn't he hear the Riders when they were so close? - alatariel
  • (Continuity) When the three hunters and Gandalf enter Meduseld, Gandalf is seen holding onto Legolas' arm obviously for support. The next shot he not in contact with Legolas in any way and the next time you see them he is holding his arm again. - joanie
  • (Revealing mistakes) When the last men of Rohan ride out in the open field over that bridgelike entrance way into the fortress, you can clearly see that the computer animated riders swing their swords without an orc even near them. - Simon

Corrected Goofs

  • (Factual errors) In some scene, Eowyn (a female elf) cries, the tears come out of the centre of her bottom eyelid but your tearduct is in the inner corner and comes out there. (Theatre) - Yatmandu
    • Correction: Eowyn is not an elf, she is a human. - Sheeny
  • (Revealing mistakes) When Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli meet the Riders of Rohan (men banished from Rohan), one of the Riders is wearing sun glasses underneath his helmet. - Jean
    • Correction: It is not sunglasses, but just the shape of the man's helmet. He has what seems to be glasses at a glance, but it is just the eye holes in his helm.
  • (Plot holes/Factual errors) When Frodo, Sam, and Gollum are at the black gate Sam says 'god save us' god! what god? they're in middle earth they don't believe in god. - geekmeek
    • Correction: If you put the captions on and watch it...its clear the Sam says 'Oh, save us.' Not God. (DVD) - acire0b12
  • (Continuity) Throughout"The Fellowship of the Ring" Legolas had dark brown eyes. For the first two hours of "The Two Towers", Legolas has blue eyes. Then, for one scene, they are brown again, then back to blue for the rest of the movie. - detante
    • Correction: Actually detante, its only because of the lighting in the first movie that Legolas' eyes look brown..if you look closely when Legolas is speaking to the Council in Rivendell his eyes are blue. They are blue through the whole movie. I assume that you are talking about the scene at Helms Deep where Legolas and Aragorn are arguing where you think that his eyes look brown again this is also just lighting. If you pause and zoom in, so change the brightness on your TV you can see that they are blue. - acire0b12

Explained Goofs

  • (Anachronisms) In the two towers trailer (and probably in the film as well) there's a battle scene where Aragorn gives the command 'fire!', and everybody starts shooting arrows... 'fire!' is derived from the age of gunpowder and muskets; in an era where everyone is using bows and arrows, and no ones invented gunpowder, the correct command is 'loose!" (Trailer/Theatre) - morvan68
    • Explanation: Actually, Aragorn doesn't say fire! Throughout the parts where Aragorn is commanding the battle, he is speaking Sindarin. The text translating the dialogue says "fire!" at one point, but since Elves do not have guns, it would not really mean "fire," like it would in English. It is just translated that way for easy understanding. - Erofeb
  • (Continuity) When Merry and Pippin (the hobbits) are kidnapped by the Orcs, and the Orcs are attacked by the Riders, their hands are bound. One of the hobbits (I'm not quite sure which one) rolls over and there is a horse rearing over him, and his hands are unbound (considering he is flailing around). Later though, when Aragorn is trying to find out what is happening, he says that the hobbits cut the bounds on their hands AFTER the horse rears up! - Ashley
    • Explanation: If you read the books, you learn that Pippin Had already had is binds loosened before the battle, and had just kept it a secret until the time was right.
