Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

[Aragorn walks out from beneath the ruin and finds a troop of Uruk-hai advancing towards him.]

[He walks towards them, touching his sword to his forehead.]

[The Uruks attack. Aragorn cuts several down, but they force him up the stairs of the seat.]

[Sam is searching frantically for Frodo in the woods.]

Sam: "Mister Frodo!"

Lurtz: "Find the Halflings! Yaggh! Find the Halflings!"

Aragorn: "Elendil!"

[Legolas and Gimli run forward from behind the the ruin. Legolas shoots several Uruk-hai; Gimli lands blows with his axe.]

Legolas: "Aragorn! Go!"

[Frodo runs and hides behind a tree. Across the way, Merry and Pippin hide in a space under some fallen tree trunks.]

Merry: "Frodo!"

Pippin: "Hide here! Quick! Come on!"

[Frodo looks at them, then shakes his head.]

Pippin: "What's he doin'?"

Merry: "He's leavin'."

Pippin: "No! [runs out towards Frodo]

Merry: "Pippin! [goes after him]

[Merry and Pippin are out in the open. Several Uruk-hai are coming down the hill, towards them.]

Merry (quietly): "Run, Frodo! Go!"

[Merry cups his hands and calls out to the Uruk-hai.]

Merry: "Hey! Hey you! Over here!"

Pippin: "Hey!"

Merry: "Over here!"

Pippin: [waving his arms] "This way!"

[Both Hobbits run away from Frodo. The Uruk-hai troop follows them. Frodo makes a break for it, running in the opposite direction.]

Pippin: "It's working!"

Merry: "I know its working! Run!"

[Back at the hilltop, Legolas, Aragorn, and Gimli continue to fight the Uruk-hai. In one smooth move, Legolas stabs one Uruk with an arrow then shoots it out at another. Gimli wields his axe. Aragorn stabs one behind his back.]

[Merry and Pippin run across an old stone bridge. At its far end, they stop and see Uruk-hai running towards them. The Uruks are closing in, both in front and behind. An Uruk runs up to them, raising his battleaxe. Boromir comes charging in, knocks the Uruk back, and kills him with his own axe. He throws a knife at another. More close in.]

[Legolas kills Orc after Orc. He shoots down an Uruk who has closed in on Aragorn.]

[Three loud horn blasts are heard.]

Legolas: "The Horn of Gondor!"

Aragorn: "Boromir!"

[He runs down the slope towards the sound, but Uruks are between him and Boromir. The forest sweeps by as he goes.]

[Boromir sounds the Horn of Gondor again. The Uruks attack Boromir.]

[Aragorn battles madly towards Boromir.]

[Boromir kills two more. Merry and Pippin stab some Orcs.]

Boromir (to the Hobbits): "Run! Run!"

[The Uruk-hai leader walks into view. Boromir fights on. Merry and Pippin continue to throw rocks. The captain aims a black-fletched bow.]

[He shoots.]

[Boromir jerks backwards at the blow to his left shoulder.]

[Merry stops in mid-throw as Boromir falls. The Hobbits look at him in shock. Boromir begins to breathe hard. Uruks come closer, and Boromir gives a battle cry, rises, and swings his sword at one, who falls.]

[The Uruk chieftain growls and walks down the slope. He lifts his bow, and shoots again, as Boromir turns to look at him.]

[A black arrow flies into Boromir's stomach. He drops to his knees again, gasping. Merry and Pippin still stand in shock, rocks in hand.]

[Boromir stares into their eyes.]

[Boromir gets back up and swings his sword at another Uruk. The captain shoots him one more time, in the chest. Boromir falls on his knees and stays there, swaying a little and blinking. His horn is cloven in two.]

[Merry and Pippin look at him, aghast. They take up their swords and attack the Uruk-hai.]

Merry and Pippin: "Ahgh!"

[The Uruk-hai lift them up and carry them off. Merry and Pippin wave their arms frantically.]

[The Uruk-hai troop walks away from Boromir, who looks on helplessly. The captain stops before his foe. Boromir swallows and stares back at him.]

[The chieftain snarls and pulls his bow back, ready to deliver the final blow.]

[Aragorn crashes into him, and the arrow flies off harmlessly.]

[The captain and Aragorn fight. Aragorn loses his sword and is thrown to the ground; when he gets up, the Uruk-hai warrior throws a two-prong shield at Aragorn, pinning him by the neck against a tree.]

[The Uruk raises his sword and strikes, but Aragorn slips beneath the shield. Aragorn pulls out a knife and stabs the captain on the leg. The Orc roars and pulls out the knife, licks the blood from it, and throws it at Aragorn. Aragorn bats the knife away with his sword.]

[Aragorn closes in on the Orc and in a flurry of swordplay, slices his arm off and then stabs him through chest. The captain pulls himself up on the sword, closer to Aragorn, snarling.]

[Aragorn grimaces, pulls his sword out of the Orc, swings it, and hacks off the Uruk-hai's head. The rest of the Orc falls to the ground.]

[Aragorn pauses a moment, panting. He then races to Boromir.]

Aragorn: "No!"

[Boromir, pale and bloodied, is now lying on his back. Aragorn kneels near Boromir, who grabs Aragorn's shoulder.]

Boromir: "They took the little ones."

Aragorn: "Be still."

Boromir: "Frodo! Where is Frodo?"

Aragorn: "I let Frodo go."

Boromir: "Then you did what I could not. I tried to take the Ring from him."

Aragorn: "The Ring is beyond our reach now."

Boromir: "Forgive me. I did not see it. I have failed you all."

Aragorn: "No, Boromir, you fought bravely! You have kept your honor." [reaches out to pull the arrows from Boromir]

Boromir: "Leave it! It is over. The world of men will fall, and all will come to darkness… and my city to ruin."

Aragorn: "I do not know what strength is in my blood, but I swear to you I will not let the White City fall… nor our people fail!"

Boromir: "Our people? Our people."

[He reaches for his sword. Aragorn places the hilt in his hand, and helps Boromir clasp it to his chest.]

Boromir: "I would have followed you my Brother… my Captain… my King!"

[Boromir dies. Aragorn touches his hand to his forehead, then to his lips in respect.]

Aragorn: "Be at peace, son of Gondor." [bends and kisses Boromir on the brow.]

[Legolas and Gimli arrive at the scene. Legolas looks sadly at Aragorn and Boromir.]

[Gimli bows his head and turns away.]

[Aragorn stands up.]

Aragorn: "They will look for his coming from the White Tower. But he will not return."
