Nothing to do with fighting. [In reply to] Can't Post

It's to do with lapses - Thranduil in the book has major character flaws - a bit too keen on jewels. No reason why the captain of the guard shouldn't be a competent soldier, but capable of underestimating the strength of a batch of special wine. It's part of the nature of the human frailties that Tolkien gave to his creations.

It shows great respect to a character to show their failures and their attempts to rectify them. Hopefully the film makers will take this approach - but I have my doubts.
