I mean, I can see the ideas behind it are not 100% terrible, and whatever she doesn't have to be a white supermodel to be an effective character. I think I liked the sister angle, but they made it such a minimal thing that I thought she was her lesbian wife actually. Guess that shows you how much CA has influenced my thinking
The whole love speech was just bad, regardless of who was giving it. The whole freeing the animals and kids while your friends are literally sprinting away from death was a dumb side quest that really seemed to be put there just to make a statement. I CAN see how you could have done those things to highlight the Resistances morals and standings.. but the way it was presented in the movie just fell flat for me.
Yeah, feel free to make a statement, but not when you're on some kind of serious life or death time constraint.
I see it often in all kinds of movies though, and it's incredibly annoying. The characters are racing against the clock for whatever reason but take the time to monologue about something MUCH less important. They're trying to build tension, but it just makes the characters look like idiots. Similarly, when they make characters not see something that is directly in their line of sight or in their peripheral vision, but because it's out of sight of the viewer we're supposed to believe that the characters can't see whatever it is that they can see when they finally reveal it to the viewer.
