Rey is one of my favorite characters in cinema history for so many reasons but one of those blaring reasons is because she is such a great fighter. Through The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi she has displayed countless times her incredible combat skills but I have also noticed recently that Rey has her own, very awesome, signature move that is a rather cool staple to her character and I am so excited to share it with you. Enjoy!
I Call it The Rey Kick
During the confrontation between Rey and Unkar’s thugs on Jakku she handled herself very easily against them but one of the most memorable moments of that fighting sequence for me is when she kicked one of the thugs away. It always makes me so happy when she kicks that assailant away and I’ve loved that part of the fight ever since the first time I watched the film. So, that’s the first example of her using her now famous kick.
Then when she fought Kylo Ren she used her kick again to, well, kick his butt. 🙂 Awesome!
And then during the epic Praetorian Guard fight she displayed her awesome kicking ability yet again as she kicked one of the Guards away. Rey is so cool and I’m so excited that I discovered this fantastic connection between her and all of her close-combat duels. I hope that her kick purposely is her signature move and that we’ll see her literally kicking some more butt in Episode IX.
I thank you for reading this short observation of mine and I hope you have a beautiful day. May the Force be with you.
