I can feel movement within the drive (it is a repetitive movement that continues for as long as the drive is plugged into the laptop via USB).
The repetitive movement you can feel is most probably the "click of death". The drive is effectively dead.
fdisk can see the MBR (first 64 bytes -- of a 2 TB drive!) doesn't mean you will be able to mount it successfully, or get any data off of it.
sdb1 is the NTFS partition you're looking for, but
ntfs-3g is already telling you it can't read the NTFS signature (a preliminary step to mounting the drive).
I don't understand what you are attempting to do with
sudo more /dev/sdb1?
You can try some "folklore" fixes that may or may not work, e.g. freezing the drive inside a ziploc bag for 24 hours to see if that temporarily fixes the problem, etc., but you should probably start resigning yourself to the fact that the data is most likely lost.
