So, I’m watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens for the third time now, after having seen it twice on opening weekend, and have come to the conclusion that I was right the first two times I watched it:
Finn, as a character, sucks.
He’s a whiny, self-centered, useless character that engenders no sympathy from the viewer. At least not this viewer.
While some folks might disagree, having fallen into the trap of wanting to see how the Rey-Finn “relationship” plays out, that’s not enough of a reason to excuse his shortcomings.
