Even moreso beforehand.. [In reply to] Can't Post

She points out that the Army of the Dead keeps the pace of the film moving where forcing Aragorn to muster the Men of Southern Gondor would slow things down considerably (depending upon how much of this was depicted). Certainly the Men couldn't just swarm over the attackers in the same way as the supernatural allies.



I don't think the actual battle itself would be a massive issue since you really don't need to show all the action, look at the end of Helms Deep for example.. What would really have needed alot of extra time is properly setting up Dol Amroth and the seige, I just think the jump from Aragorn leading the dead to Aragorn suddeny appearing with Gondorians off the boats would have been too great for the audience.

Whats more if you show that section I think it needs to be a fairly major climax as its the payoff to the paths of the dead. So not only are you looking at extra time in an already long film but your also looking at having to fit in an extra climax that doesnt really have anything to mirror it in the other stories.

            I think it's *more* exciting, and I bet the general audience would agree. DanielLB Send a private message to DanielLB Jan 4 2013, 5:53pm
