    This kind of poll has been seen before but it was on the last board we had.

    I'd have to say my elven blood is winning out on this one. No... must... fight it... ...Too late. Elven it is.:D

    Had to go with Gimli. What he does with an axe is incredible, and as much as Legolas and the elves kick butt, I have to give my vote to the axe-wielding dwarf.

    Haldir, I thought the archer in you would choose Legolas.

    I really prefer Haldir and his troop of archers to be quite honest. I'm captain/chairman of my club so I lead the troops, ya know? Though I'll be an archery with Anduril on my back! :)

    Sauron's fighting style is most entertaining. What could be more fun than watching a 7-foot armored giant hurl men and elves into the air with one swing of his mace :D .

    I hate seeing elves die. In fact, I thought the elves at Helm's Deep should have been tougher.

    the martial artist in me likes Legolas's flashy knive stuff, but there is something to be said of Gimli's fighting.

    Its got to be Legolas's fighting style, with his flashy dagger and arrow moves.

    I would have to say Legolas because of his fluid style and quick arrow shooting

    Yeah well Haldir's death was always Peter Jackson's plan. Unfortunately. He rocks!! :) (Haldir that is) Gotta love the elvish language. It's just such a smooth beautiful language. *returns from going off topis*

    Legolas seems interesting though his archery is a tad far fetched but I was very disppointed to find that he didn't shoot a single arrow-to be expected I guess but still disappointing!

    You mean with him dry-firing all those times? I think would have shot a few.

    Gimli. Mostly business, but still combines some pleasure in there. Legolas is too flashy, fake, and frilly.

    I thought Boromir's fight scene right before his death was the most entertaining. Who else can still swing a sword after being hit with three arrows.

    It's not that realistic, but it's more realistic than shooting CGI arrows.

    Boromir. Plain and simple, especially a shot in Moria when he parries to the head and his sword catches an orcs wrist. I wonder what Boromir at Helm's Deep would have been like, he would have gone all crazy on those Uruks!

    Most entertaining, when it comes to the movie would be the combination of legolas and gimili and the little "fights" they would have about who killed the most, etc.
