Re: Fatal Flaw?
Nobody has talked about the protag's character arc, unless I missed it. Rick went from a guy who doesn't give a **** about anything, to a guy whose unrequited love pops into his life, stirring deep emotions, to a hero who sacrifices his love and happiness for the greater cause.
Did Laslo arc?
Many stories have protags who don't arc. But can you have a non-protag character who arcs as much as Rick did?
The story was mostly about Rick. We witnessed his journey. We identified with him throughout the story. Not so with Laslo.
