That makes a lot of sense when it’s laid out like that.
In the movie it felt like, “Kill her. Or bring her to me, or… you know what, why don’t you just kill me?”
I think it’s a symptom of the movie’s breakneck pace. It’s why it’s so tragic that the movie doesn’t have any released deleted scenes, because between the novelization and the leaks, a (IMO) pretty solid movie was filmed, it just got lost in edits.
It doesn’t help that JJ Abrams seems to edit/direct movies under the belief that if he pauses the action or lets exposition run for more than fifteen seconds at a time, he will literally die. Like the movie Speed, but with bad movie editing.
So … is Jj’s style is like a shark and has to to keep moving or it’ll die?
