laughing "Olympic Uruk'Hai..." Ha ha! I liked all those arrows in that fight. I think it would be more boring without the elves. All those hundreds of arrows flying all over the place made the battleground seem more... "Alive"... Unsettled... More active, know what I mean? yes ninja Ninja Elves! Now THAT would be a sight to see! Or Zorro Elves...! zorro

That was one of the reasons why I thought it was cool that they were there. cool I actually thought the Battle of Helm's Deep in the book was quite boring, but that's just me. smile

Hey Shadowy have u seen that spoof of that moment, the one where it says 'and bringing in the torch for the 2056 helms deep Olympics games is random Uruk-Hai #5671' or something? I should find a pic of it.
*disappears to look for one* its hilarious!
the scene wasnt even that long in the book, i think *forehead creases in rememberance* but in the movie, PJ made it about 24minutes, i think. smile

Yeah, I also assume that they were all dead at the end but what's up with still showing us that some of them made it to the Keep yet none of them went out alive? confused

How can you tell the difference between an Elf and a human in a glance? They don't look that different... The arrows maybe, but still...

Yeah, but it's all so dark... It's a little hard to see... Oh well. I just didn't think anyone would actually be paying attention to that kind of detail. Go figure.

Maybe it's just me..but I thought it was kinda easy to distinguish an Elf from a Rohir may it be dark or no..(and it wasn't very dark anyway) both races have their own special "Its" that makes it easy for some people to determine them, aside from their differences in armor, hair, helm, etc.

Yes, I agree. At first I thought he was Celeborn, Lord of Lothlórien embarrasment

Haldir's death was neither necessary nor motivated enough to warrant any emotions at all...elves at Helm's Deep seemed somewhat of an anomoly since it was not in the book. I understand that this was a movie, but it did little to add to the scene.

quite true, its weird to show that they did turn up...

it was more in the movie to show that the elves are not totally abandoning men in the fight against sauron, little did they know that lorien was going to beunder attack

I agree. And even in Lake Town they were under attack. Where King Bard and King Dain were slain in that battle. And the woodland realm of Legolas' father saw battle as well. While in Theoden King did think the world of men had no friends such as Aragorn did, the allience was still there.

Offtopic yet again,

notice how these old topics get "bumped" and then go immediatly off topic roll eyes (sarcastic)

Haldir wasnt much of a tragic death, in the film he should of listened to aragorn and left without sticking around to add a ew more orcs to the death list....

^go to bed.

It was lame that to have survive so long in the fight, yet the moment Aragorn yells for them to retreat back to the keep, he is wounded with lamest attack by one orc, looks at his blood in astonishment, like he can't believe he's been wounded, then doesn't think about anything else so he's wide open for an attack from the rear.
