How the hell is it that in TFA she uses a Jedi mind trick with no training AT ALL? Didn't it take Jedi Masters many years to be able to do that? Load of bull...
Also you would think Kylo, having that lightsaber for some time, would have been able to wield it effectively against someone who has never used one before.
I liked them both! I think she was just supposed to be like a Jedi savant, though, right?
I liked them both too! And yeah, I didn't have a problem with Rey's abilities. Either she's a Jedi savant or there's also the theory that she had prior Force training as a child that she doesn't remember. In any case, the vast majority of scifi/fantasy protagonists are some variant of "the chosen one" or uniquely gifted/have special powers and so it's not like Rey is any different in that regard, and I don't have a problem with it (especially as she's the first female Jedi main character which I super appreciate!).
