Boromir's death scene question

Not sure if any of you noticed this, but when Boromir is dying he keeps raising his head. Why is that? And was Boromir shot in the heart with the first arrow? By the way why does Legolas look like he has a brusie on his forehead? Its not only in this scene but also when they come out of Moria.

I haven't watched the movies in a long while, so I might be mistaken in this.

Trying to defy death? Trying to act in spite of dying, but having strength only for raising his head - barely.

I assume not, as he was alive for quite a bit after that. Maybe near the heart, but not dead center.

He just fought orcs himself. And as much as the illustrious Orlando Bloom is the deathless superhero, Legolas is just as "hurtable" as any of us...

Some orcs there too...

But more realistically, I think it was bad makeup and not a battlebruise.

As I said, I haven't watched the movie for a long time, so I don't remember such small details as bruises. But considering the facts that you give and the Orlegolando Bloomleaf eneral picture, it's more likely to be bad makeup or just a shadow that looks like a bruise than an actual wound. Orlegolando is invincible, right?

...well, at least, that's what the movies make it seem like...

If the Tolkien Legolas had bruises, they were bruises. But Mr. Bloomleaf is such a perfect hot blond [a very long and not very nice list] idiotic elf toy sidekick, that a bruise on him is just impossible.

I know I sound really cynical, but that's what it is: book and movie Legolas are like an apple and an orange.

Like any mannequin, Orlando Bloom's head is made of wood. What you're seeing is a knot.

Not mean, Morthoron.

My guess would be that the bruise was caused by a wind machine whipping all that hair around.

I'm thinking the loss of blood and use of motor functions.

No, he came too late.

Aragorn did a lot of things "too late" that day, and he kicked himself for it...

Went looking for Frodo too late, realising Boromir's true desires too late, set out to find Merry and Pippin too late, thus giving the orcs a good head start. Or, maybe, waited too long to ask for the final decision from Frodo.

Ultimately we find that he did all these things in the perfect moment. He met Eoner, and then Gandalf, only because he did what he did when he did it. But at the time he was punishing himself severely, and he said that all his choices were amiss, and this time he has to choose right...

Perfect! I found this too late. Things happen for a good reason that's what's illustrated here.
