What are Your Thoughts on Rose?

One of the most surprising elements of the backlash over the The Last Jedi has been the character of Rose played by Kelly Marie Tran. I wouldn’t go far enough to say that she was universally hated or anything like that, but it does seem that even people who loved the film didn’t really like the character that much. Tran has been bashed online and given a lot of racist threats. I was just wondering if Rose’s storyline was just a dud or the character actually sucked.

The only really problem I have with the character is that she was underdeveloped. We never really learned enough about her that I liked or disliked her. The relationship between Finn and Rose just didn’t really work for me. If they do have a full on romance JJ will have to do a little work on it in Episode IX. I think Tran’s performance is great and the chemistry between her and Finn is there, but when she gives him the kiss at the end of the movie it feels like it wasn’t earned. Rose and Finn are obviously involved in the Canto Bight sequence that didn’t really meet expectations with fans.

Obviously there are always the annoying politically correct people that are going to pull the race card, but I seriously want to know what you guys thought of Rose. Would you like to see more of her in Episode IX or should Lucasfilm chalk her up as a loss and move on in Episode IX?

  • Mr. Perfect

    Adds something like the Cleveland Browns added to football this season.

  • Raythedevil

    I guess I have to see the movie.

  • Raythedevil

    It might be weak, but it’s something.

  • Mr. Perfect

    If that is all he adds, then that is weak.

  • Raythedevil

    Finn does add to the story though, he introduces the fact that some stormtrooper’s brainwashing might not hold.

  • Mr. Perfect

    She has no worth. Her sister has some worth.

  • Mr. Perfect

    Just like Finn, she adds nothing to the story..

  • Raythedevil

    Fuck shouldn’t be boring.

  • Raythedevil

    Obviously, they won’t just do what I’d like to see done, and I still haven’t seen the movie, but it seems to me the character probably has some worth and should remain. What they actually do with her, I don’t really have any good ideas at this time.

  • Bulgingsnake

    The whole Rose & Finn thing was boring as fuck in my opinion

    I think she’s Vietnamese. Also, I think they shoehorned her character into the movie at the last minute.
