I think Faramir is the better character, but he wasn't done justice in the film. Boromir is the one that succumbs to the ring easily, but Faramir was the complete antithesis of his brother, being noble and valiant. However they spoilt this slightly in the film by showing him being tempted by the ring (an explanation why is given in the behind the scenes). Boromir was cool and a fantastic warrior, but Faramir was by far the superior to his brother, even if sadly not in his father's eyes.
i would say boromir any day of the week !!! FARAMIR IS A GIRL! if i was faramir i would slap denethor silly the biased *******! FARAMIR just started crying like a LOSER! plus boromir took three of lurtz' arrows and still kept on fighting!!!!!! boromir is a hero no doubt...
First of all unlike you (stringz) Faramir has respect for his father. If anything Boromir would be the girl for he started crying after attacking Frodo in Fellowship of the Ring. Boromir is a hero no doubt, if you consider a hero trying to take the One Ring from a hobbit (that is half you size). Faramir rode into thousands of orcs with just a few knights and charged bravely into battle showing more valor then his brother ever did not to mention he can resist the ring's power. He even said he would throw the ring down an spit on it.
Plus rangers are cooler then soldiers any day of the weak.
as much as I love to psychically explore the cosmos and think of myself as a baby hippopotamus
I would have to say it is faramir he my have did some thing that is not cool but he did let them go and he did his best to come out on top. it is not fare that is compared to his older brother wher faramir is so much cooler

Sorry man, but in MY opinion that is BS. Bormoir would do ANYTHING his father asked, no matter how stupid or...ridiculous, and he wouldn't wine about it either. The only reason Bormir cried after he tried to take the ring is cuz he actually got a grip on himself and realized what he was about to do. you would cry like a baby if you went mad and tried to kill your mother or someone you really loved, than came back to our senses. Boromir was in the presence of the ring's influence for weeks-months. Faramir as in the presence for a mere days, at least. Faramir at least had some fellow rangers with him when he charged the "hordes" of orcs. Borimir didn't have ANYONE at all. just himself, he also fought Uru-Ki, which are ten times stronger than orcs, AND HE HAD THREE ARROWS IN HIS CHEST. (Lol, I'm not yelling, just putting emphasis, although their IS an italic button...) Finally, I prefer the brave soldier any day to the cowardly ranger that hides in trees all day, and is to afraid to get in his enemies face, so he uses a bow instead.
