    Well.. if you don't know the password then there's nothing you can do. Do you?

    Code:
    man unrar

    Open a terminal and go to the directory the movie is in:

    Code:
    unrar e filename.rar
    It should ask for a password.

    I beleive that all you need to do is run the command:

    Code:
    unrar -e YOURRARFILE
    this will then ask you for a password(I think, its being a while)
    I do not except responsibility for anything that goes wrong with any of the advice I give, be it a broken HDD, an entire computer or if you chop off your arms, follow anything I say at your own risk.

    Ah! Try re-downloading the second part of the archive - I think it might be corrupted.
