- Leia’s chase scenes are ridiculous (she toddles around at three miles per hour and this somehow leads to extended chase scenes with grown adults). And speaking of Leia, while it’s fine that she is ultra-perceptive (like when she senses her cousin is afraid of his father and such), the long spiels she goes on are far too mature for what is still a very small child.
Haven’t been around 10-year-olds lately, have you?
Actually, I have. But if they wanted more realistic chases, they should have hired a different little girl to play Leia (because this little girl apparently doesn’t know how to run; it looks like she’s actually toddling around (my seven-year-old daughter runs faster than her)). They should at least have given her some sort of head start (or have her further away from her pursuers to start with), because what we got was her toddling away, her pursuers quickly closing the gap–quick cut, now she’s 30 feet away; her pursuers quickly close the gap again–quick cut, now she’s 30 feet away again (it’s like the chase scene in Hot Fuzz, only it’s not supposed to be a joke).
