Hayden's acting of 20yo boy who suffered through mother loss was on point. Id even say that he is underreacting. Hayden's acting of conflicted 23yo young man whispered by Palpatine on Invisible Hand was on point. And his realization of that he did something pretty bad Hayden's acting of suffered man who burns out everything good left in him screaming was absolutely on point. Hayden's acting of angered hateful man was absolutely on point. It were mostly some of the quiet moments with cardboard dialogues about politics or love where he acted not good, but neither do some more famous actors like Samuel L.J or Natalie Portman. And did you look at Adam Driver in the the scenes where he is not screaming? His voice always trembling, and eyes always wet, like he is gonna cry every time he need to talk someone. Maybe thats the distinctive side of his personality but its by no means less annoying or whiny acting that Hayden's in AotC. And when it comes to dramatic scenes, Hayden in RotS third act trumps everything Adam did in ST. The gifs above are enough to prove it. What about Kylo's dramatic moments? That 30yo grown man who supposed to act like a 30yo man? "Im torn apart"(c) That was the moment in TFA when i cringed. I hate when authors aren't able to show us the suffering, so they need to tell us this through the words of characters. When it comes to Kylo, i still dont know why he is specifically torn. He acted pure evil all the time. So yeah, i completely disagree with those who say that Kylo is what Anakin should be. Thats nonsense, as well as Adam's abilities to pull off better Anakin than Hayden.
