    ...was a character that people are indifferent to?

    People should be discussing her cool lines and scenes and actions but it isn't generating much interest (and by much I mean next-to-nothing) on the various forums I frequent. People's silence tells me a lot about the movie.

    I personally dont see it as a good or bad thing. Cool lines are cool lines but if they discuss, then I think that it should be about the character of the character if that makes any sense. Maybe people dont resonate with the character like they do with people like anakin, obi-wan, or even rey. the silence might even be telling of the spin off movies. R1 wasnt bad and felicity/jyn is not either but i dont think the ending worked for her character after all that she has been through.

    Off course those to, she's going on to a level actresses dream of.

    Agreed she was the perfect choice, this role could lead to more offers in other franchises.

    It is very strange. I watched A New Hope again today, and I keep thinking about Jyn, Cassian and the others. Previously A New Hope was light in depth and emotional weight, but after Rogue One, A New Hope couldn't be more different. I love it.

    My favourite Jyn scene is the one with Saw and Galen's transmission, but also definitely the whole Eadu sequence.

    Agreed that was a gripping scene, I was just waiting & waiting for the Jyn tears to flow not seeing her dad for 15 yrs, this made it great. Yes ANH was like that. I'm glad there was a difference.

    Jyn was originally marketed as 'the female Han Solo'. Most of her rudeness and rebelliousness was edited out and she was made into a much quieter, proper and demure character than hoped.

    She's great. I love Felicity Jones. I think she'd make a pretty badass bounty hunter in a film or in star wars within the Old Republic Era. I wish we could her character Jyn in more films....

    I got to admit after watching the movie and reading the novelisations, watching the OT is different in some way. I mean, I love my Big Three and Co., but keep thinking in all the sacrifices made for a rag-tag team of rebels to get the Death Star plans.

    Even when they say her character was diminished in someway, I didn't feel it affected since if you read the novelisations and pay attention to the movie, basically the story goes around her and the ultimate sacrifice made by her father due to his love for her.

    Her exchange with Cassian when leaving Eadu is amazing and powerful. As I mentioned in other thread, you can see the opposites we had in the OT with Han and Leia - yeah, I know, they were not a couple but the potential for them to be was there, had they not died on that beach. Jyn remark of "You might as well be a stormtrooper" is the opposite of Leia's "If money is all that you love, then that's what you'll receive./Your friend is quite a mercenary".
