    Perhaps it's that opportunities like this were so few and far between that Draven decided it's best to just kill one of their top commanding officers then to attempt a risky extraction operation. Draven gave this order without any input from the rest of the council. Meaning that he obviously went against the more diplomatic approach in trying to bring Galen in. After having been at war with the Empire for so long, Draven was likely at his wits end and decided this would be a more effective blow against them.

    The main characters are very generic and boring
    Krennic and Galen Erso should have been the protagonists

    A television series about them going to blows would actually be pretty interesting.

    No opening crawl
    The two main characters both die at the end
    Vader should have had a longer part in the film

    I just think it’s a little dreary and unnecessary. The characters aren’t very interesting, and it covers ground that doesn’t need to be covered. And Tarkin and Leia give me uncanny valley vibes.

    Not complaints per say as they are explainable, but annoyed me all the same:

    Why do Stormtroopers sound so different from one another, when RI is meant to be a prequel to SW?

    Why most in the RC are a bunch of pansies?

    What in the world was Leia on Scarrif? Head canon is she sort of disobeyed Bail, in true Skywalker fashion.;)

    Not really sure what you mean, but stormtroopers are not clones. They don’t all sound the same as each other in the OT either.

    And Leia wasn’t on Scarif, unless you’re questioning why her ship arrived at the battle above it.

    It's difficult to offer a complaint as, in some ways, R1 is the most flawless of the SW films. From beginning to end it unfolds in a logical, seamless fashion with outstanding visuals, characters and emotional resonance. However, I do find the opening theme and accompanying card peculiarly substandard.compared to the rest of it. It's more like something out of a bad early 80s sci-fi show. Just hearing that cheesy fanfare makes my skin crawl. Fortunately, it's over as quickly as a medical jab.

    Not according to Lucas, which is why one of the changes he made was so that Boba and Troopers in the OT would sound like Jango. You are right though, and it gives fans the option to believe whatever they want in that regard. Like I said, it doesn't really bother me just slightly annoy me; as said leeway is what allowed Filoni to get away with such BS storyline for the Clones in TCW.

    Yes, and yet ...not exactly. watched the Battle again last night and the way is set up it leads you to believe
    that Raddus and Leia are occupying the same ship, are they?:confused:
    .
    And yes why was Leia at Scarif at all, considering the importance of her individual assignment? Like I stated above, I don't mind in the slightest but I can see why people are calling it a plot-hole.

    They redid Boba’s voice in TESB to be done by Temuera Morrison, who played Jango. But there were no changes like that made to the stormtroopers.

    Leia’s ship in RO was docked with Raddus’ ship. So Vader’s landing party entered Raddus’ ship, and moved through it trying to get the plans... but ultimately failing because the plans got onto Leia’s ship, which then launched and got out of there.

    I ask again: How did the blind guy with a wooden staff take out storm troopers who wear armour? Same question goes for the Ewoks (save for the two trees mashing in the Chicken Walker)

    Oh yeah..keeping up with details among my fandoms get confusing and slip.[face_peace]

    Oh, no wonder Raddus is presumed dead. Thanks a lot for clarifying this to me.

    How did a tiny group of Rebel soldiers not be quickly overwhelmed by the much larger garrison in the initial battle on Scarif? There was what, 20 of them?

    Why is Chirrut able to seemingly dodge blasters by walking very slowly. Please don't tell me they couldn't hit him from that short range. Weren't they Death Troopers? An elite force?

    One of the few in the Alliance with actual testis metaphorically speaking..in my head he lives though, if barely.

    Catalyst seems to be a good foundation for that- on my reading list after I finish Tarkin. I'll let you know if its worth it once I'm done with it, if you'd like.

    The Deathtroopers certainly missed their target, but I think you may have missed the point. ;)

    The rebel forces are spread out all throughout the beaches and jungles, so they aren't concentrated together to be easily beaten. They use guerilla tactics, hiding, and exaggerating the strength of their force to draw out the troops so that Jyn and Cassian can sneak in effectively.

    Bodhi also helps by convincing the Imperials that certain pads were under attack, diverting the forces further.

    As for Chirrut, he used the force I guess? And he does end up getting blown up seconds later.

    In a world where information about modern conflicts like the Vietnam and Afghan wars is readily accessible, I have difficulty understanding why this question would even be asked.

    My only real complaint about the movie is that the first third of it was too choppy. It jumped about too much for me to care about any of it. I feel the movie doesn't really come together until Jyn sees the hologram of her father. From then on, it's a solid movie.
