I don`t think what I`m saying is making any sense to be honest. Do you?
LEGOLAS!! NICE ELF!!
Honestly, even before the movies, I was never a huge fan of Legolas. I never disliked him, but he was just another character to me. I thought Bloom did a good job (acting wise, he didn't write the script that made him do certain ridiculous things), but even still, film or books, I was never mesmerized by him like many seem to be. Great character, very well written, but just didn't do it for me....
"He is here!"
Also right at the end where he looks at the newly Crowned King Ellesar and nods towards Arwen hiding behind her banner.
I also think he did a good job. It was the writers that messed him up. The Mumakil scene was one example, but I think an even worse one was skateboarding Legolas. I admit it's a cool little move, same with the Mumakil scene, but it's soooo cheesy I couldn't help but "snarf" instead of be left in awe.
I see Bloom the same way I saw Daniel Day Lewis for years after seeing Gangs of New York. I always have trouble picturing what he really looks like, because when I think of that person, I first think of the character they played. Bloom being Legolas, Lewis being Bill the Butcher. I swear for years I could never remember what DDL actually looked like because he was so....natural in that role. Everytime I thought of him I pictured him is striped pants with mutton chops and a top hat. So Bloom will always have long flowy blonde hair in my mind, and not some gym rat scruff and cheesy mohawk...
Legolas was awesome. orlando bloom played him well
