I find his character uncompelling, uninteresting not-even-evil-lite and he’s the reason that I don’t really like either TFA or TLJ (I am a big fan of both R1 and Solo). I just can’t invest in his character and that really undermines watching the sequel trilogy because it basically leaves me without an antagonist. I like the rest of the movies just fine, there’s things with all four that I wish that they invested more in, but Darth Brat just doesn’t sell it for me.

What specifically about the character do you find uncompelling? Certainly he’s an unlikable brat, but that’s stock-in-trade for movie villains. Put another way, would his character have been better if he had been stronger or scarier?

I find Kylo appealing but it’s not exactly a deep character or anything. But it all just about works for me.

He may be a villain, but I would also consider him to be one half of a protagonist, like what Rian Johnson had said. He is a fantastic character.
