This listing seem's quite low to me. He's around an inch taller than Christopher Lee (Saruman) when he's talking to him in the tower. (The Fellowship of the Ring) So unless that Christopher Lee was only flat 6'2 back then, wich seems unlikely, I could give this guy the 6'3 3/4 mark in the movie.
But it's possible that he lost a small fraction at 54 tough.

I think he might need an upgrade, 190 cm is too low. I can see 192 or even 193.

They never even shared the same frame in that scene, so I'm not entirely sure where you got that impression. In the scene where Saruman is giving Lurtz orders, they seemed pretty eye to eye.

I'm surprised he's this short. In the scene in LOTR where Lurtz is born he easily has a couple of inches over 6'4 Christopher Lee. Maybe he was standing on a chair in that shot.

Yeah he was only about 2-3 inches taller than Pierce Brosnan.

Legit 6'4" guy, could pass for 6'5". Similar in height and build/race to Jonah Lomu

Yeah he doesn't look much taller than Brosnan does he. I saw nearer two inches. Again another example of Brosnan seeming to be 6'2" in relation to a 6'4" guy (also like Neeson).

He came into the BP service station that I worked at and bought cigarettes. I looked up (cos I'm only a puny 180cm) and joked that "they'll stunt your growth!" He laughed, but then he was probably just being nice. Definitely surprised at how tall he is. First impression was 190cm.

Watch the part in DAD where Brosnan hops out the car (err ... vehicle) upon arrival at the Ice Palace and Makoare opens the door for him ... he only appears like an inch taller than Pierce.

In the behind the scenes documentary for Return of the King he describes himself as such: "In the first movie I played an Uruk-Hai, they stand tall...(Gothmog) is an orc, one of the little guys. How am I playing an orc when I'm six foot four?" then he goes on to talk about the 'new orcs' etc... looks to be about this height

He didn't look much taller than Pierce Brosnan in one scene from Die Another Day ... where Pierce was hopping out the car upon arrival at the ice palace.

I think I've heard referred to as 6'5" several times. I would believe 6'5" from Die Another Day.
