Question: As the mine explodes at the end of the movie would it actually be possible for all of the prisoners to escape? Because the shots right before the detonation we see them still running down the steps and some just leaving the cells. How would they be able to get far enough away to be unharmed?
Question: How much of the sword fighting/horse stunts were actually done by the actors? For example the scene where Alejandro gets Tornado back after being chased by the Mexican soldiers.
Question: This is probably been asked over and over again, but please. Just why were these people stuck in a cube? Why them? Why not somebody else? Is this set in the future? Anybody with any details is helpful here.
Question: Near the end of the film when they are coming into the Shire, the old hobbit shakes his head at the 4 of them, he's also seen in the first movie. Does he have a name in the books or anything?
Question: How in the world did Hikaru Sulu, whom under all circumstances is Japanese, end up with that last name? Even in the novelization of the Star Trek IV, he meets his great (great.) grandfather named Akira Sulu. (Question is aimed more for a production explanation than a story-based one.)
Question: Faramir and the Rangers captured Frodo, Sam, and Gollum in Ithilien. They marched overland to the outskirts of Osgiliath."Osgiliath burns." There they were freed by Faramir after the Nazgul attack. But when Faramir spoke with Gandalf and Pippen in Minas Tirith, he said he saw Frodo and Sam in Ithilien not two days hence. Weren't they just in Osgiliath?scwilliam
Question: Why does the end credits list "Medicine Woman" when there was no medicine woman in the movie? Was this based upon a deleted scene? If so why wouldn't she be removed from the credits?
