Well [In reply to] Can't Post

Aragorn always knew his destiny and was willing to take on the burden of being king. He prepared all of his life to do so. He was not the whining Hamlet he was portrayed as in LOTR. That was the thing that bothered me the most. Aragorn is a type of the Christ-King. He is the perfect king, in fact. But we have trouble with those concepts these days. I suppose Jackson felt people would not relate well to Aragorn if he was not conflicted about his role. An important part of the story was lost because of Pj's choice here.
