And no, I don't think it would have meant adding more scenes at all - we can use our imagination. And depending on timing (need to double-check) Norm could have heard say 'going down' over the comms.
Well said.
I really like Trudy, and even if I would still choose a Na'vi any day, there is no human on Earth (or off it ) who I shouldn't choose one over, and Trudy is still amazing and a great character - I was sad when she died

Trudy is the one dead--or *probably* dead, for you doubters--character I wish hadn't died. Others really needed to get out of the way to keep the story moving in the direction it did, IMO. Not Trudy. It would have been great to see her live to be the last vestige of SecOps at a post-apocalyptic Hell's Gate, helping to redeem the place in some small way. They'll need a character like her there.

I agree with the comparison to the marine in Aliens. I see a definite connection there. There's a similarity in their deaths, as well. Both were sort of drawn into their chosen sides of the battle, and both died without a real choice of it.

I'm a definite Trudy fangirl, BTW. There's juat a badass vibe around her that is hard to get over. It would have been nice to see more development of her character, though. The relationship with Norm brought her out, which made her more of a main character in the film. I hated that Michelle got killed off in Lost, as well.

I know I'm going to face a "blue wall" for this, but I really liked her character more than Neytiri. There was just something about her that I found odd. Still trying to figure that out. Sorry, Neytiri fans.

Hmmm, after reading many posts, I have to say...

Can we not have a Neytiri vs. Trudy discussion? Our preferences are subjective, and it would be silly if we get into an argument, although we're not doing that yet. I respect the opinion of those who prefer Trudy over Neytiri, even if I don't agree. One thing is certain though. They are both awesome, badass characters.

Yes, this. They are both wonderful, badass, FIERCE women - and we don't need to get into which one we think is 'better' to celebrate them.
