I just watched the classic trilogy over the last week and I've been meaning to start this thread for a while. I did a search, and I can't see this being debated before but apologies if it has.
What do you think to Luke Skywalker the character? What do you think about what he says and does, and his role as hero?
Just for the sake of this discussion, ignore things like script and acting, just think about what you see on screen as if it's real.
Here's my two pence...
I think he's lame. I love the films and I love most of the other characters (except for Han, Leia and Lando) and I love the story etc etc. But Luke Skywalker is one of the most unconvincing, and generall lame heroes I've ever seen. I don't like the way he whines all the time, and I just don't like the fella. Okay, he's the hero and the entire saga revolves around him and his father, but don't you think he's a bit lame?
