Shouldn't Ren and Rey absolutely wrecked the Praetorian Guard?
Quote:They may have been elite human warriors, but given the use of the force etc, should they have been any threat at all?
Quote:I thought at first they were the other force users who left with Ren (what happened to them?), but apparently they were not force users. Maybe force sensitive like Chirrut Îmwe?
It's possible they had some force training and ability in order to resist force attacks (similar to why so many Jedi/Sith devolve into lightsaber combat). That might explain why neither Rey nor Ren use their force powers to win this fight.
But we never see that, and it doesn't appear to be confirmed online anywhere.
Rey can be explained, somewhat. She has to really stop to concentrate for her force powers still. Ben with Ren, its probably just bad writing. We've seen him toss people, stop blaster shots, etc. with no hesitation at all.
