I know there aren’t many noble deaths in a warzone but wow were the deaths of these ‘main’ characters forgettable. How about the pilot just eating a grenade after setting up the communication to the Rebel fleet. Ben Mendelsohn again was underutilised and was just lazily shot with no dramatic tension or payoff at all.
I’m not sure if I was supposed to really feel bad about the death of K2 seeing as how he made it clear the entire film that he was just a droid only helping out because he was reprogrammed to do so. The blind guy had a pretty interesting death I guess but his boy, demolition man, went out like a punk just like everyone else.
Even the two main characters, Jen and South American Han Solo, got engulfed by nuclear radiation. Fuck, I’m getting depressed just thinking about it. I get that Rogue One was a rag tag group of misfits who made the ultimate sacrifice but shit, can ONE survive? No? Okay, cool nevermind.
