No, she isn't. For one, she saw exactly what happened with her parents. She isn't "missing" memories or anything like that. She knew why her father was taken, she just made herself believe the worst of him because it was easier than missing him eternally.
then we have an odd relationship with the white hair dude who apparently took care of her but we never see this relationship till she meets him in which she spends 5 minutes with the guy before he decides to die with the whole base.
He's actually a character from the Clone Wars animated series, so if you watched that, you knew exactly who he was. The only question I had about him was how he got so much cybernetic addons. His relationship with the Ersos is also covered in the novel "Catalyst," which explains why Galen Erso ran in the first place, and who helped him (Hint: it was Saw Guerrera).
Even when her father dies its like she tries to care but we don't feel it.
I mean, you may not have felt it, but I did.
The long lasting embrace between the main characters feels so forced because the shots (blame the editing) makes look like they were very connected but I don't feel the embrace connected weighed on the scenes.
To me, it made sense. These were two very defensive, armored individuals. Even with trust, it's hard to let down those barriers. It's possible that the only reason why they did was because of what awaited them in their next few moments.
Everyone questioned what she saw with her father but at what point they're like "ok we believe you know" and for a long movie fuck I don't need the exposition period but a climax has to be built on the second act with more credibility.
The politicians didn't
believe her. The scoundrels - the ones who went with her - decided
to believe her, and it was heavily implied that they only did so because
to cling to the hope that they could do something to destroy the Death Star, or else all of the vile things they had done in the name of the rebellion were done in vain. They were looking for absolution and signed up for a suicide mission.
The blind guy and the black one with the gun ok they seem cool... but we have a bare guts description of who they are but not how they met.
They were both Asian, btw.
The imperial pilot defector, ok he was inspired by the father of the girl... can we know a little more?
It's not bad movie but its lie "These characters are going to die so who cares if people connect" insert cool space battle and Vader here for that extra rotten tomatoes rating.
I went in knowing they were going to die, and told myself I wouldn't get attached. But then I did. *shrug* I ended up liking the characters more than I intended to.
I had my boner with the Vader scene which was very worth it at least.
See, I personally didn't find that interesting at all. But that's just me, I guess!
