After watching Wonder Woman it couldn't be more clear how Diana as a character is everything Rey from Star Wars should've been.

Diana/Wonder Woman has a personality, she's expressive, full range of feelings and emotions, actually endures a learning curve, not perfect/makes mistakes, faces real setbacks and lose, personal drive and motivated, and has a self appointed purpose in life.

Rey, is "the chosen one", ready made, no cooking required, bland, boring, indifferent, with no real drive or mission in life, pulled in all directions. Just going through the motions.

Wonder Woman got it right, Star Wars did not.

You made a wise choice, young-Jedi. wink Diana is the better character SW evaporated long ago to be taken seriously.

Couldnt agree more.

Rey, like the other new SW characters Poe and Finn, has zero character development especially in The Last Jedi. Additionally, all the intrigue built into the character in The Force Awakens has been utterly destroyed by the latest film that looks like it was written by a committee of teenagers.

Wonder Woman on the other hand was a well handled, well rounded character who was allowed to grow throughout the movie. I still don’t think it was the huge feminist film that some people insist but it was far and away a better movie than the amateur-night that was Episode 8.

Other than a few remarks alleging TLj's present and future greatness, no one around here is exactly defending Rey or TLJ.

There's no defending the indefensible.

I did find Rey a bit of a cipher, just there to look determined and swing the saber.

WW felt more three-dimensional, but still lacking a bit.
