Warg Fight in Two Towers

This has not aged well. Just watched it recently and it looks terrible. I remember PJ saying in the commentary that the CGI was never given much time, and it shows! The fight itself looks poorly thought-out. Gimli, one of the big fighters, gets trapped after 5 seconds. Aragorn falls off a cliff. I hate this scene.

there is some impressive archery by legolas as they come over the hill. as well as a 'big fighter' gimli is also a big source of comedy and for some reason PJ thought this scene deserved some laughs. probably one of the scenes chris tolkien had in mind when he was talking about the movies dumbing down the books.
