Now that you mentioned a karate movie

The interview sounds like Tauriel runs "mercy`s for the weak" school from Karate Kid movies. Laugh

I`m positive that she`ll turn likeable but the character marketing that over-emphasizes "ruthless killer" and "dark alley" kind of a stalker/attacker personality to exclusion of anything else isn`t working any magic on fans judging by reactions. I really don`t understand why they think that she`ll be accepted easier if market as a one-dimensional harda$$ akin to Lurtz (only female version) than someone who is likeable. Being a fighter and being likeable aren`t mutually exclusive. Tolkien world is full of characters who are likeable fighters.

Just how do you make a character named Daughter of Woods (or Forrest) sound like a cartoonish villain? The name itself speaks of deep connection to nature and love of its creatures, in short someone who`s humane. So she would be a humane warrior. Yet none of interviews related to the character revelead anything but attempts to scare the audience. Is there a twist coming our way where she`s going to slay Thorin, Kili and Fili? Can`t imagine such scenario but only that would justify ruthless killer talk, not slaying Azog&co.

Without knowing a ton, this character would seem to fit
a karate movie.
