As most people will and have said, the worst sin of The Lord of the Rings films is Faramir, aka Boromir’s clone. In The Two Towers film, Faramir is essentially a clone of Borromir. In the Ring, all he sees is the power to protect his people; a weapon with which to fight Sauron. He is harsh, almost bordering on cruel. He is also quite hasty and unwise. The majesty and honor his of Numenorian blood is lost. Like Borromir, he is drawn to the Ring, wishing to take it for his own. He shows no wisdom, no understanding of its evil, no understanding of tact or care. He is utterly callous.
This “Faramir” is unrecognizable.
The true Faramir is honorable, and just. He is wise. He understands the need for caution. He has some knowledge of “Isildur’s Bane” and its dangers. He tells Frodo, before even knowing what he has, that he would never take the Ring from him. And when he finds out what great power, and corruption, is within his grasp he keeps his word. He helps Frodo. He lets him go. He shows mercy. None of these qualities is shown in the film’s pseudo-Faramir. That Faramir is a travesty to behold.
