It's hard to like her after she abandoned her brain-damaged friend.

I'm not even going to complain about her cucking Fitz later because even though it fits the same patter of giving up on him after a relatively short time.

She's a symbol for the U.S. Federal government's general "War on Drugs" and how it's completely ass-backward relative the goals it puts forward.

She's representative of how the U.S. is completely impotent in punishing the leaders or the drug trade through the usual legal proceedings. At best, our courts fuck over the addicts and dumbasses that make up the end-users of the narcotics trade. Of course, no matter how many mandatory sentences you hand out legally, it doesn't make a damn bit of difference to the cartels.

Sicario Emily Blunt

Was the movie actually about a woman's coming of age?
Through starting puberty and then the common trials and tribulations of a young woman.

Her naivety and innocence yet overwhelmed by the desire to be viewed as an important member to the team

Asking the Josh Brolin/Matt Graver what's happening and he doesn't tell her.
This was her losing her virginity.

Meeting the guy at the bar that only had bad intentions and she didn't see them.
Dating the douchebag that hurts her overrall and ruins her trust for men.

Only wanted to help but only wound up being used by men and then thrown away.
This was the final raid scene in the tunnel.

Being raped and then basically told to not tell anyone.
This was when DelToro told her to sign the paper.

The final scene of her signing the paper is resemblance of a man telling her not to tell anyone.
Her pointing the gun at his back and then lowering her gun was symbolic of her realization that she actually liked it.

oh ok i get it, since she wasn't ALWAYS able to do EVERYTHING herself and occasionally needed help (and because the other characters were actually somewhat useful) she's not a mary sue, even though more often than not she was the key and occasionally she was a superhero, and even before all that her oh so spooky cortexiphan past kept being brought up.

you don't have to throw a perfect game to be a mary sue. being noticeably too good or too important for "reasons" is enough to get you in the conversation, and olivia dunham is a little beyond that level

Did you also forget that part of being a Mary sue is having no real flaws and most if not all people liking you? She's not a Maru Sue m8, stop falling for that meme shit

>often than not she was the key

She was literally the key because of cortexiphan shit.

> being noticeably too good or too important for "reasons"

Too good at what exactly that's not because of cortexiphan? Walter even explained why she was the best cortexiphan subject, something about her home environment being just the right kind of abusive to trigger shit, hence sending her back there when he wanted her to trigger her cross universe shit when she was a kid. Things like the Machine and her deactivating it, again, part of cortexiphan shit and later on revealed that the first people were Walter sending shit back in time to make Peter make a different choice, so of course they'll point to Olivia, since he knows her and she's close to Peter

Tarantino uses food in a lot of his films to associate power. So when she finally relents and eats the strudel she is giving power over to Landa. But she doesn't just nibble, she throws herself into submission with reckless abandon.

Very interesting movie. It's like almost all of the component parts where where well done, but the unified whole just didn't work. The protagonist was interesting, the child-actress robot nailed it, George Clooney was good, their chemistry was good, it had the typical above-average direction that Brad Bird brings, all the action sequences where well-done, the world-building was pretty thorough, it looks great... but it just didn't work in the end.

It had parts that were way too tonally dark for the movie it was presenting itself to be, the pacing was frustrating, they didn't get to Tomorrowland fast enough, and as a result the third act wasn't super coherent and the villains were boring, the ending was completely forgettable, it kind of tries to appeal to everyone but ends up pleasing nobody, a lot of things are unexplained or fucking confusing. It's like how did they get A+ effort put into the film when the script story and structure was so half-assed? It's an exceptionally produced, piece of shit story built on a forced premise by Disney to promote a ride or whatever that nobody gives a shit about. It came *this* close to pulling it all together but when it didn't everything kind of fell apart. It's one of the most interesting movies of the year, just as a case study for how you can get so much right in a film and still shit the bed.

Nah m8, she was literally a Mary Sue, as in the actual nonmemeing definition of one.

Wise, smart beyond her years, so special with just some words that percentage thing dropped from 100%, both Frank and Athena like her and are impressed with her even when they normally disagree with each other, figures out immediately how to use and navigate that future sight thing for no reason besides Frank just saying she knows how shit works even though that hasn't been demonstrated before or why she knows how shit works, and figures out what the machine is doing, just because, and spouts retarded shit about feeding the right wolf.

Enough with the Mary Sue shit. Anyone that actually understands the source of the Mary Sue trope should fucking understand that it's stupid as fuck to apply it to protagonists, especially in adventure and fantasy genres. ALL fucking protagonists in those genres are essentially Mary Sues. And when everyone is, no one is. Mary Sue is a trope that applies EXPLICITLY to idealized, author-surrogate secondary characters introduced in FAN FICTION to interact with the heroes of the existing fictional universe. Max Landis' (who started the whole Mary Sue hivemind last month) point when he called Rey a Mary Sue was to accuse the movie of being fucking fan faction, first and foremost. Trying to apply the Mary Sue trope to protagonists in original adventure films completely missed the point of the fucking term, and protagonists.

And quit pretending like there's diagnostic criteria and some kind of checklist for the trope. Before the MaRey Sue circlejerk there was absolutely no agree-upon definition. And it's ironic that you say "nonmemeing definition" and then precede to list the traits of the exact fucking meme.

>Wise, smart beyond her years
For one thing, that's up for debate in this movie. But more importantly, protagonists are the protagonists because they are special. They are quite often "wise, smart beyond their years," they're often driven, determined, clever, resourceful, exceptionally nice, have welcoming personalities, and are generally good, idealized people. Frodo had exceptional, extraordinary will-power for no established reason that allowed him to not be fully seduced by the Ring. What a fucking Mary Sue.

>both Frank and Athena like her and are impressed with her even when they normally disagree with each other
Other protagonist characters "liking" the main protagonist doesn't make them a fucking Mary Sue. Hermoine and Ron and literally every character that wasn't a Slytherin liked Harry, Harry was such a fucking Mary Sue.

Not sure about the Colonial Fleet, but the US Military Oath requires you to obey all lawful orders. Pretty sure killing innocent people isn't considered lawful. If the only way Cain could keep Pegasus alive was to throw a bunch of helpless civilians under the bus, she should have gone out guns blazing (ended up going down this way anyways with Lee because he wasn't an edgy cunt and knew it was over). As a Colonial Fleet officer she should hold herself to a higher standard and be willing to sacrifice herself to ensure the safety of others. Cowardly conduct to be honest family.
