Even if Finn makes it, in a melted skimmer I can’t see how that’d do much.

And I meant there are other ways to blow open that big ass door, I’m sure.

It looked like just peripheries like the guns. Fuselage was intact just prior to Rose’s interception.
They are practically at the mouth of the cannon. I have trouble buying he wasn’t going to make it or he wasn’t going to do much damage.

I guess this really does come down to individual perception. I just didn’t see it the same way you did.

Well obviously the reaction says they could have made this clearer, as many people have misinterpreted the scene. I took it, when Poe called it off as a “suicide mission,” that it wasn’t worth it, and that’s all I needed to know and the rest could easily be assumed without being stated outright.

I feel like you shouldn’t act as if you’re 100% right and everyone else is wrong. What if you’re the one that misinterpreted it? (I’m not saying that’s the case here)

I can’t imagine how that would be the case, as the whole point of the scene is the culmination of Poe’s arc. If people think that Poe is a coward or that Rose doomed everyone, well I think it’s obvious that wasn’t the filmmakers’ intention.

The intention is there, if you think about it. But the problem is the execution. It’s very unforgiving for people who are on the fence about it to begin with, and are less willing to give it the benefit of the doubt.

As I said, the fact that so many people didn’t get it means that I guess it wasn’t clear enough. Shame, they probably could have sold it with just one additional line (maybe this is the downside of not having test screenings).
