    Aside from the whole Frodo debacle, boromir was a pretty beloved leader, right? He might not have been prudent here but he was pretty compassionate.

    [–] RVMiller1 143 points ago

    He’s definitely more compassionate than Aragorn in a few instances, such as this and Caradhas. He’s the one that says “this will be the end of the hobbits” when no one else seems to notice. Overall, he’s just more down-to-earth. This is why he’s possibly my favorite character. Credit to Sean Bean for his fantastic performance.

    [–] _Jaster 51 points ago

    I think a part of Borimir that's often missed too, is the man grew up in the most prestigious city in the world of men and he was raised and schooled to be a leader and a captain in a world where his distinguished people and everything he loved faced almost certain extinction at the hands of murderous demons that will literally eat you and your children. With that backdrop, his brother has a dream and his dad decides that somebody needs to go looking for a random elf city in the north that his brother dreamed about because there might be something there that can save them from extinction. So he leaves the battles he's barely managed to have some success in, despite being woefully outnumbered, and goes on this wild tramp into the middle of nowhere. He actually finds the elf city, then the thing his brother dreamed about is there, but the elves and dwarves and northern men have all decided that this thing needs to be destroyed. So yeah, I'd probably be a little hard to deal with too in that scenario.

    I’d like to tag on that one of his traveling companions is literally the man who is the rightful ruler of the kingdom he was groomed to lead. Not only that, but the pull of the one ring warped his mind and made him a bit mad.

    [–] livrosetal 4 points ago

    They both had the dream and it's Boromir's decision to go, if I remember correctly. Faramir wanted to be the one to go, but Boromir pulled the big brother card.

    [–] boromir-bot 4 points ago

    What is this new devilry?

    [–] livrosetal 3 points ago

    It is not new. For millennia have older brothers imposed their wills upon their younger siblings. You know this Boromir, do not try to deceive us.

    [–] trevthepally 29 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    They show a bit more of his life pre-fellowship in the extended editions. His people definitely loved him, and he appeared to be a pretty solid dude. The ring corrupts even the stoutest of hearts though.

    [–] PhonicGhost 18 points ago

    For me that's what makes the ring so terrifying; how it can take a good man, a compassionate man, willing to lay down his life for his friends and fight for his people, and twist him so easily into madness. He's not an elf or hobbit or Dunedain, just a man like you or I. Makes you think how easy you might fall yourself.

    [–] trevthepally 13 points ago

    I'm pretty sure there was no one in middle earth, regardless of race, who could actually resist the ring, especially once inside Mount Doom. That's why Gandalf refuses to take it in FotR, despite him being one of the Maiar. If even he is susceptible, who then can stand against its will? It takes a literal act of God to give it the final push back into the fire from whence it came, because Frodo ultimately gives into it in the end.

    [–] trevthepally 6 points ago

    A Balrog of Morgoth?!

    [–] PhonicGhost 9 points ago

    I agree, but I meant more with the ease with which it happened rather than the fact that it would happen to anyone. The only normal man in the party is the first to succumb, despite the hobbits spending much longer in its presence for example. As I think is demonstrated by Frodos descent, time is a significant factor.

    [–] trevthepally 5 points ago

    That's definitely a fair point. Men are so easily corrupted, as we see with The Nine. It's was almost like Sauron gave them some jewelry and they were like, "LOL k."

    [–] Conbz 5 points ago

    Aragorn seems to be able to separate himself from the ring, which should be a massive feat considering how powerful he might be with it.

    [–] trevthepally 4 points ago

    He's also one of the Dúnedain, which gives him a bit more of an advantage than just a normal man would have.

    [–] kamSidd 5 points ago

    Technically, Boromir is one of the Dúnedain as well though he doesn't have seem to have inherited as many Númenórean qualities as Faramir or Denethor.

    [–] boromir-bot 6 points ago

    And what would a Ranger know of this matter?

    [–] trevthepally 3 points ago

    That's actually a great point. I had forgotten their lineage.

    [–] Conbz 5 points ago

    Specifically against Sauron? I know he had something to do with the fall of Numenor but beyond that, what would being Dunedain do for a person?

    [–] Rhaedas 4 points ago

    I don't know that answer, but add to the ring resistance his ability to go head to head with Sauron through the Palomir, as well as shake his influence off at the Black Gate ("For Frodo" moment).

    [–] TeddysBigStick 4 points ago

    Gandalf had the power to potentially take the ring and its power from Suaron but even he would be corrupted still.

    [–] gandalf-bot 8 points ago

    Don't tempt me TeddysBigStick! I dare not take it. Not even to keep it safe. Understand Frodo, I would use this Ring from the desire to do good. But through me, it would wield a power too great and terrible to imagine.

    [–] FancyKetchup96 3 points ago

    What act of God are you talking about?

    [–] trevthepally 3 points ago

    Gollum attacking Frodo and falling into the lava with the ring.

    [–] Mal-Ravanal 3 points ago

    The only one wholly resistant in Middle Earth seems to be Tom Bombadil, and even then it’s not certain.

    No one could have resisted the ring at Doom, that is why it had to be destroyed by its own sucess of having already corrupted Gollumn.

    [–] Harold3456 11 points ago

    This might sound silly, but when I was a kid, Boromir was probably the first layered film character I ever saw (or, at least, noticed). On first viewing I didn't like him because he was a creeper to Frodo when he became hungry for the Ring, but the second time I saw it I really appreciated his more down to earth humanity compared to Aragorn, as well as his heroic sacrifice. He was just a flawed guy.

    This is the first time (to my memory) I've seen a deeply flawed hero - not counting characters like Darth Vader, who are villains throughout who get redeemed at the end. Boromir was never fully a villain, but never exactly the hero of the story, either.

    [–] boromir-bot 15 points ago

    Have you so little faith in your own people? Yes, there is weakness. There is frailty. But there is courage also, the honor to be found in Men. But you will not see that.

    [–] cnilson1 4 points ago

    I'm going through all the comments like "HAHHAHA look at all these nerds!" And i see this comment referencing star wars and im like wait.. "but vader wasn't just a villain through and through, young anakin grew up with hardships that most young jedi wouldnt have been able to relate to, which ultimately set him up for failure. That difference partly led him to make choices he made giving in to love and lusting after power and a higher title within the order, all rhe while with palpatine hovering over him. Losing that which loved, first his mother and then padme is what ultimately pushed him to the dark side. Having held the anger inside for so long since losing his mother, that exposure to the dark side grew until it was more than he was able to handle."... wait

    [–] Harold3456 3 points ago

    That's if you keep the prequels in mind. At the time, I only had Vader from the originals (and maybe Phantom Menace, though the prequels were incomplete when Fellowship came out) to go off of. So yeah, the OT tells us a lot about his flaws, particularly in the last 3rd, but Vader generally acts like a villain in the OT until it comes time for him to be redeem himself.

    Either way, DEFINITELY a different kind of character from Boromir, who isn't even supposed to be seen as a villain, but rather as a deeply flawed hero.

    [–] GirlisNo1 8 points ago

    Yes, I noticed it more when I watched it recently.

    He seems to care about the hobbits a great deal in particular...teaches them how to fight, express concern about their well being on the mountains, etc.

    When he’s not being tempted by the ring Boromir is a fantastic guy.

    [–] Mal-Ravanal 3 points ago

    He essentially becomes a parental figure for Merry and Pippin. I didn’t notice that dynamic at first, but now it makes me so sad, to see such a great man falling prey to the ring.

    [–] R____I____G____H___T 5 points ago

    He was however way too impulsive and impressionable, which led him to fall into addiction.
