Balin as Boromir [In reply to] Can't Post

I too would love to see more of the Dwarves realms visualized on screen as they exist at the time of the movie's events, and not simply the deserted Moria. Even if its just very brief... just flesh out the poor old Dwarves... and also allow them to be more than just comic relief. They should show that their abilities in battle justify their reputation as hardy fighters far bigger in power than their heigh suggests.

I love Balin, and I think the idea of him being lured by the ring isn't a bad one. Hopefully not used in a manner that would warp Balin into anything dislikable. But making him more tragic in the sense that we know why he got fired up about Moria perhaps.
