“They got away in an escape pod just in time. The pod looked like just another piece of debris…The transfer of the plans happened later. They jumped away and later [Leia’s] ship came in from Alderaan to help them. The ship-to-ship data transfer happened off Scarif.”
When talking about Rogue One there are literally only two major takeaways: Darth Vader and the ending and honestly, the best Darth Vader scene happened at the very end so yes actually, the only takeaway is the ending.
If Jyn Erso flew away and avoided that explosion, I think I would’ve stood up in the theatre and yelled out ‘SHENANIGANS’. I loved watching that cloud of nuclear annihilation just sweep her up in the blink of an eye. Mostly because her character sucked and I was begging for her to get murdered for 2 straight hours.
Shout Out to Disney for making a popular movie that didn’t have a happy ending. They haven’t had a sad ending like this since Bambi’s mom got sniped in the forest. Good to see Disney going back to their roots.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you would’ve preferred the happy and mega lame Star Wars Rogue One ending. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
