While I agree with some of what you say it's possible she had her mind wiped and was partially trained as a jedi.And kylo Ren was injured so it's possible to take him out,if he were full strength and she defeated him I would agree with you
That's your opinion
Sorry to disappoint but i suppose I am one of those guys. What's enjoyable about a character that has no flaws and learns everything in a second, even if she hasn't been taught it/knows of its existence? I don't care about any fan-fic/fan theory that she is the great great granddaughter of the Dee-vine wun Hisself - all I have to go off is that cruddy film and in it she is just the Sueiest of Mary's.
Only if done respectfully, passionately and with consideration to canon and 'believability''; as opposed to some ticky box 'yay aren't we good we put a womanz in our game and she iz strong and good at effryfink eva.'Hey hey hey,rey was fine don't be one of those guys
Give me someone like an Ellen Ripley rather than a Rey.
Absolute terrible character in a terrible film that adds to a, now, terrible franchise.
Agree or don't with how I place value on them; but know the things I mentioned are the FACTS of the movie, NOT opinion.
Mind wipe, as of now, is pure speculation, got none of that from the film, so based off of the evidence at hand - she just pulled these skills out of nowhere. I am not a fan of the JJ Abrams mystery box rubbish to keep watching/legitimising something.
So what he was injured? He could have used the force to kill her instantly - we saw dude stop a plasma bolt effortlessly and he even locked up Rey's body effortlessly, all of a sudden he forgets his powers? Furthermore he is/aspires to be Sith - they feed off of pain and hatred, as evidenced by him punching his wound, oddly he could have been MORE powerful at that point.
In previous lore a lightsaber was something that took not only great skill but Jedi reflexes, otherwise the risk to the wielder was high, yet in Star Bores the Farce Awakens everyone and their mum can just use a lightsaber like its nothing and hold their own or even beat a person trained as a Jedi/Sith who is from the lineage of the Skywalkers (dem Midichlorians doe)!!!!!?!?!?!?!?!?
Like I said no issues with anyone in anything (mostly, it can be contextual) if done correctly, could Luke and Leia have swapped roles in the original trilogy and be enjoyable? I definitely think so yes. If Rey was a male would I have enjoyed Ep 7? HELL NO, it would still be poorly written trash in which the main protagonists just achieve things because, flying in the face of previously established lore and good storytelling.
Once more to relate it to this topic, I don't want that for Halo, the example I gave of an Ellen Ripley style character that we see grow yet be consistent and relatable because they aren't propelled into unrealistic and uninteresting perfectness based off of some 'minority' status. Take the MC for instance, at a superficial glance you could say he is a Mary Sue - he nigh on never loses, he can fly anything, drive anything, shoot any gun, he comes up with plans and they succeed, he survived where many others have died; yet go and ask him to mingle in a social setting, negotiate some peace talks, take annual leave, look after a child, tell us about his first love and hobbies etc. That is interesting to me, shows there are many facets to this guy other than 'he just succeeds at everything ever, ever, because, oh and he's a Chinese millennial, homosexual, Republican who participates in prayer circles - DEMOGRAPHIC BOX CHECKED!!!'
Just to clarify, because these days for some reason, mentioning people, literally mentioning them is offensive now. I am not poking fun at any of the groups mentioned, I am making the point that these corporate people do NOT care for making quality products but bamboozle people into thinking they are by adding someone with the same, physical/sexual/political/religious characteristics as people to draw them in without having any substance to the story/product. I am a 'minority' and can not stand when some characteristic is forced in so unnaturally just so a developer can say 'we are cool and not prejudice' - case in point ME: Andromeda when out of nowhere and crazy uncharacteristically the engineer on EOS just spits in your face that she s trans!!!
