I have watched the film "The Lord of the Ring", but, unfortunatly, I haven't read the books by J.R.R. Tolkien
And what I can say... I thought that Frodo isn't a real hero but now I think that real hero is Sem.
Frodo was crying during the three films. He was waek and little silly, though, no, he was stupid.
As for me, I respect Sem. Frodo is nothing without Sem. If I were Tolkien I would give the Ring to Sem. He was brave, mellow, strong both phisical and moral.
That's why if I go to a big travel, which is full of dangerous adventure, I will take Sem with me.
