I actually didn't mind Finn too much. Yes, he looks very gorilla-ish with his constant asthma attacks and massive underbite, but he was actually a better character than, oh say, Rey.
The movie itself was shit though. Or, more accurately, it was "okay" in the same way that all the churned-out marvel movies are okay. Super safe, nothing really special, all flashy action scenes to make up for a lack of character drama, etc.
Watch out for that vicious bounty hunter Boba Fett, Luke. Did I ever tell you I fought his dad? He was hired to assassinate a senator me and your father were guarding. We kept bringing her around open windows and public areas in order to draw the would-be assassin out because we knew he had too much pride to just shoot her from long range. He had used his payment to hire another bounty hunter to kill the senator for him while he sent us on a wild bantha chase. Also the 2nd assassin used her payment to buy a robot to assassinate the senator for her. Did I mention the 2nd assassin was a shapeshifter? She could have been a good friend in disguise and just shot the senator for all we knew! Then the robot used its payment to buy poisonous bugs to release into the senator's room while she slept after lasering a hole through the window. It could have just lasered her too after that because we we weren't watching her at all, but it already bought the bugs. So we sense the hostile life forms (not the robot) in the room and rush in and save the senator in the nick of time! Then I jumped out the window to chase the robot back to its owner! Luckily it didn't have a self-destruct function. Then we found the 2nd assassin and chased her across the planet, and caught her when she tried to kill us instead of shapeshifting and escaping. But to our surprise, Jango Fett was watching the whole thing instead of going to kill the senator while we were away chasing the bugs chasing the robot chasing the shapeshifter. He shot her with a poisonous dart instead of sniper blaster, and only her instead of shooting all of us or blowing all of us with a rocket or something, then he escaped with his tiny jetpack. Luckily for the senator, my good friend Dexterr Jettster owned a 50s dinner on Courscant that had Republic secrets on the menu along with cheeseburgers and malt shakes. We found the assassin and Mace Window killed him later, right in front of Boba. And he was a good friend.
>>59945470 >>59945549 List of characters better than Finn >Luke ( 0 lines) >r2-d2 ( 0 speaking lines) >tr8r (1 word) >bb8 ( 0 speaking lines) >the storm trooper Rey did the mind trick on (4 lines) What made Finn a terrible character was everything. He spoke like a nigger, acted like a nigger, sweat like a nigger and looked like a nigger. -2/10 tied with jar jar for worst character
>>59945381 I'm thinking of a new meme. Something that can be spread by a hashtag We show in pic 1 how in the original trilogy a black man was an influential and wealthy guy, then in pic 2 we show how a black man was the most powerful human Jedi (most powerful one being yoda obviously) then in pic 3 we exclaim with outrage that in the new movie the black man is a lowly grunt. Thoughts?
Okay I'm not judging Boyega's acting, I honestly couldn't critique it because I was distracted by how ugly he is and also by how poorly WRITTEN his character was. I don't think anyone with a combination of those looks and that script could have made Finn enjoyable.
I mean at least he wasnt a Mary Sue like Rey, so he was better written than her (in fact he was like the opposite of Rey, a total fuckup in almost every element, so I could see how the character would grow on some people)
But I have problems with suspending my disbelief about the fact that he's been brainwashed from birth with no prior behavior problems and just up and decides to defect and help a prisoner escape out of the blue, seems to be incompetent at combat despite extensive training (actually maybe it fits in with all storm troopers actually being incompetent despite years and years of training), was basically a Janitor as a combat shock trooper, and was a total coward constantly seeking to run away... again despite being brought up brainwashed into being a disposable shock troop.
>>59945487 hes a disposable soldier who was on latrine duty on a gigantic planetary sc-fi space weapon whos black/bantu but the name he chooses is "Blonde haired boy"..... how would you expect him to be clever? >>59945804 also this
>>59950536 The whole film had questionable and badly written parts. Another, even bigger Deathstar? Blow up the weak spot for massive damage again *rolleyes* All those coincidences? (the Millennium Falcon just happens to be there) Hokey CGI Snoke? The overly obvious character parallels (Kylo=Vader, Snoke=Sheev, Rey=Luke, Phasma=Boba etc.)
And I wouldn't say Boyega is ugly, he has very strong African features but that's not necessarily ugly. I think you are just focusing on Boyega a little too closely.
the "dark side" of the force feeds off of forcing fear into everyone, the training philosophy in their military is probably all fear based, rather than confidence building and teamwork, so a soldier trained by them is probably a coward who simply does whatevers asked because hes afraid of being fed to a sand worm or whatever the fuck the sith/the empire/first order do
all it takes is one overstimulated fear response driven soldier to be afraid of an order given (like having a dying sguadmate smear blood on your face) rather than the consequences if he doesnt
>>59949635 What the fuck has happened to this place? Where did faggots like you come from? Un-ironically calling other posters 'racist' on a board of nationalists.
Literally fuck off back to where you crawled out from you absolute cancer.
People had a problem with him because he is the most disgusting looking 100% African they could find who was given the role purely because he was black and will be forced into an interracial romance with the pretty young white girl.
People DONT have a problem with Lando because he was the total opposite.
>>59951540 Kek I've been here for years. There is a problem with forced diversity, political correctness in the West etc. I'll give you that. However, its clear a lot of people here have become detached from reality and take it way too far. You are aware a lot of this board is satire right?
All of you dumb racists don't get why they chose a black guy for the role of Finn
In the beginning he is a mindless follower of the dark side. The lowest person one can be. But he chooses to revolt. He puts his life on the line to save strange people just because it is right and he asks for nothing in return. He is not perfect. He lies to appear better then he is, but he also realizes that he did something wrong and confesses.
Finn shows us that even the lowest person can redeem himself and choose the light side, while a high born like kylo ren can fall from grace.
>>59945470 I hated his "modern" characterization it fucking out of place >trained since childhood to be a soldier >acts like some random black dude you would expect someone with military upbringing to act like a military man
>>59951634 So wat, its a movie, and he's the clown in the story. I have two beliefs, we need to breed more white people, and we need to breed shitskins lighter, full niggers cant function in the world.
>>59945381 Meanwhile in US some nigger chimpanzee music is playing, about getting aids from cheap hookers and chugging prescription pills with alcohol to get raped by rabid dogs when you pass out behind a dumpster. YO, you might be years ahead but all you did is degenerate.
>>59945381 I don't understand why /pol/ is getting angry at Finn. He's traitorous, a liar and stupid, yet /pol/ get's angry? Not only that, throughout the entire movie Rey (However you spell her name) friend-zones him. Why get angry at this?
>>59953671 Trust me saw the movie two days ago He looks like that a lot of the time. Majority of the time his mouth is open but not saying shit. He just is there breathing. It is a terrible movie I wanted o walk out the theater but I was there with a group of friend
people find con men charming and appealing, that's how they work. Yes he's shady, but he's friendly, has a winning smile, confident, and knows how to get people to relax around him and let down their defenses so he can swindle them somehow.
Con men wouldn't be very effective if they couldn't win people over.
well I was just talking about the actors. The characters.. well we haven't had time to see Finn actually develop much aside from defecting, trying to impress a white girl with lies, and coming clean (and even that is growth, if it wasn't for him defecting out of the blue, being incompetent and cowardly, I might actually like the character)
He might have more growth and depth in the future episodes, we'll see. It might make up for his shitty backstory at least.
>>59954084 I agree with what you're saying, just pointing out Lando had a shady history and was happy running the gas mine because it was in the middle of nowhere and let him lay low unlike Han who was still taking jobs when we met him and trying to get money to pay off the Hutts before they killed him
nothing to do with "blah blah nigger meme" but i thought finn's character was just plain stupid, he was fucking usleless, literally this movie's Jar Jar Binks. I'm glad the white chick was all "nigga you dumb"
Well I'm sure Han would "administrate" a gas mine if he'd managed to con someone out of it too. It's profitable and relatively safe and is fairly off the radar so it lets him avoid imperial entanglements.. until Boba Fett let the empire know Han was on his way there.
Their investigation would turn up that Han was heading there because of an old criminal contact, a "friend".
They had light speed, the Millenium Falcon did not so they got there before he did.
Otherwise, Lando never would have had to deal with imperials, he'd have laid low, made decent money and retired successful.
I actually thought Finn was great. Very well-acted, funny personality. He was the good-hearted fool that wants to be a hero, and he fakes it until he makes it. They even explained the fact that he's black because he got "picked up" by the First Order, he wasn't a clone.
I mean, yeah, niggers. But he did a good job.
The rest of it was basically the Episode 4 rehashed with emo teenage Darth Vader, so relax, there's plenty of room for criticism.

It would have been even much better to have the first order restore the clone army so that they could fucking wipe out rebels without much resistance and having Finn being a deviant Jango Fett clone who rejected his genome hard coded destiny. And it could have been a tragic love story between him and Rey since he would be destined to die soon because of rapid aging
>but my diversity
you could have made Boyega play Poe instead and get the girl at the end.
>>59945381 in what universe would /pol ever like a starwars movie? >anti-nazi themes >even in the original episode 4, the lead antagonist was voiced by a black guy who did theatre >made by the guy who made red tails and american graffiti >Its a shallow blockbuster, your a bunch of fucks who wouldnt like a movie unless anti-sjw pro-euro nationalist propaganda
Finn was written bad. Too foolish after spending forever in the storm troopers.
They fucked up not keep pat or whatever his name was. Should have kept him the whole movie. He could have taken some leg work from Rey making her less a mary sure and the two guys were great together. Finn could have had a role model for his arc as well.
