    It's hard to convey the passage of time in a film because it all has to happen so quickly. You can add lines of dialog like Gimli's while chasing the Urak-Hai (something about 2 days of no sleep, no food, etc). But even that doesn't seem to give the sense of time passing and too many such statements just get in the way of the story. Overall, I'd agree with the Dark Lord, PJ and team did a fine job.
