3 Sam Steps Up
The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King
There are many lovely Sam moments spread throughout the Rings trilogy – we almost featured his “Samwise The Brave” speech from the end of The Two Towers, for instance – but nothing can beat his final act of bromantic love on the slopes of Mount Doom. “I can’t carry it for you, but I can carry you!” he tells Frodo, scooping him up off the floor and staggering up the side of the volcano to their destiny. The music swells. So do our hearts.
