It's going to be difficult for an audience to buy a bunch of Legolas clones waylaying the heroes and putting them in cells a hundred feet underground, stopping the story cold. So it'll be interesting to see how it's handled.
As for stopping the story cold--I think that any halfway decent writer and/or director might be able to find drama in a prison break. The clandestine exchange of information, avoiding guards, formulation of a plan, execution of the plan, etc. You know--like we've seen in a multitude of movies and TV shows.
