If you get shot and fall face down, you’re still alive !
Disney plays it safe again to make a buck. A cast that feel so lifeless, you just care about the artificial. The dialogue is so disappointing, I heard better speeches when we were ditching classes in high-school.
I wasn’t expecting much going in. No great expectations. I just wanted to be entertained. The Rebels the most diverse cast ever, but all the same taste like M&M. I was watching them bicker and pussying out of a assault and couldn’t help notice, how diverse the cast was. There was the strong black lady, and the peaceful arab, the disliked white male,the misunderstood indian, the mysterious asian guy and so on. Everybody trying to be relevant but failing miserably.
Daddy wasn’t there …
Surprisingly I liked the heroine ( princess Jyn ) more than I thought I would. Rey ( Daisy Ridley ) was overpowered from the start, not mentioning quite the feminista. Jyn is the badass, but it doesn’t pull us out of immersion. Sure she’s looking for her father, but many of the youngsters today are, because men just don’t commit
Diego Luna,I couldn’t understand what he was saying half of the time. You won’t care what he says either, he’s just there for some whatever reason, eye candy for the ladies. Fuck if I know, he couldn’t convince me his space parents spoke space spanish. All those goddamn aliens speaking perfect english, and he’s struggling !
Anyway back to our movie. It is so boring sometimes, that you wonder if the music you’re hearing it’s appropriate for that scene. And most of the time it isn’t.
Finally they solved the complaints about Leia from the last movie. They replaced her with a young 3D model, that surprisingly looked more lifelike that real Leia . It’s those goddamn surgeries the lady actress do to to stay relevant after 30. Do they do it for us or for them ?
The last 5 minutes of the movie are 10/10. Some beautiful shots with planets and space fights don’t really save the movie. They keep pushing the narative of the “Empire is bad” while the rebels are some kind of Space Queda.
When are they gonna make those “Evil guy wins” movies again ?
P.S Dear Disney, I’d gladly accept some kind of payment to change this review into a more positive one. On the Hush-hush of course 😉
