I notice no one asked him if Adrian survived.
FOOLS! YOU WASTED THE OPPORTUNITY!
I am also a fool, as I forgot to ask as well.
Laurie does, but she's quoting the Doc.
What I'm getting at...
Does Jon ever say "The end? Nothing ends, Adrian. Nothing ever ends" to Adrian, or do they just give the line to Laurie so that the end has more of that "pun potency" we all love so much?
Oh. No more questions. Apologies.
I'm surprised no one else picked up the fact that Laurie now apparently says "Nothing ever ends" instead of Jon and cared about it.
"Triggered" is hardly a big deal, especially if it's executed well. Veidt chooses his words carefully, I can buy him saying "triggered" instead of "did" in a heartbeat.
And...how is "triggered" more evil?
No. But they are heavily playing the angle that Adrian is very upset about the innocent lives lost - a necessary evil of his plan. It would have been weird for him to do an endzone dance in that scene and have it make sense.
I really, really like that.
"I did it!" with the raised arms always seemed rather juvenile, if triumphant (and very 80's), and sort of catapaulted him into "Bond villain territory". Albeit, successful Bond villain territory.
I hope there are tears in his eyes, as in the script.
And Veidt always understood what he'd done. He DID justify it, but he still understood it was a horrible act.
