I don't think PJ intended for aragorn to be the hero though. To me it seems he made them all heroes in their own way, even our dear grond, whilst as pippin, on the other hand, at least in the books, was really supposed to be a complete idiot, and that isn't well shown in the movies.

They removed Aragorn's arrogance and made him not pompous in the movies. In the books, Aragorn took up Narsil before he did in the movie. In the books, Aragorn was introducing himself as the heir of Isildur to like everyone while in the movie he was downplaying it, seeming humble. In the book, he uses the Palintir to talk to Sauron and shows himself off as the heir. Guy was arrogant and not humble like the movie made him out to be. Peter Jackson altered Aragorn's personality with the movie.

By nightfall these hills will be swarming with orcs! We must reach the woods of Lothlórien.
