Default The Official Riptide/Jonas Quested Thread

I looked for his thread and I didn't find any.

Anyways, he looked great at the movies, his powers were so cool, I liked his outfits, he was just a missing a line!

I liked how they still incoporated his ability to spin himself at great speeds and in turn, generate giant whirlwinds.

Hopefully he gets actual lines in the sequel since I enjyoed the very minor stuff that we got with him.

Did we actually see him spin? I can't remember. I thought he made all those whirlwinds with his hands. I remember Jonas saying in an interview that he had to stand on a spinning device for his whole body to spin but I can't remember seeing him actually spin.

I have to say that Riptide was a good complement to Azazel as Shaw's henchmen, and I liked the different whirlwinds he created with his mutant ability.

It seemed to me that he did that when furious he emerged from the submarine after Magneto took it out the water But I'm not sure at all.

Yes. When Erik was lifting the sub out of the water, Riptide got out and spun himself really fast and creating the vortex

Cool, the look in the guy's face when he saw what Magneto was doing and then he was like..."you #$%^& will pay for this"

Why give him lines anyway?

I don't think he needs them. I mean, in X1, Mystique pretty much had ONE line in the entire movie and no one complained. He's almost a tertiary character anyway..

You wanna talk about continuity?

Maybe I'm late to the party, but X-Men Origins is on right now, and I'm watching the part where we see the kids in the cages and there was a kid in there that was spinning around in a whirlwind, very similar to Riptide in this movie...

He's a great spinner! He was about to spin my world up and down when he did those crazy whirlwinds by himself. He's a wind machine!

Watching the interview, he seems like a great guy. I remember an earlier (print) interview where he said for the audition he just memorized how the lines sounded because he didn't really speak English. If that's true, then it is amazing how much he has learned. He articulates his points very well and a major plus for him for knowing what his character is like in the comics.

Not much of a memory since there were virtually no lines spoken in the film.

I thought as far as henchmen go in the series he was quite good, he could definately cause some havoc when he needed to, and the fact he directly stopped Magneto keeping the sub up was pretty cool.

Really, that's cool. What's his nationality?

He was born in Spain and seems to work primarily in Spanish TV.

It's nice that they hired actors to be the henchmen versus supermodels, wrestlers, and stuntmen. They got lucky with Rebecca being a great Mystique, but Tyler Mane and Ray Park couldn't deliver a single line or facial expression with any believability.

Yes, that adds more realism to the scenes.

Haha all he had to say was "thought you were supposed to come back with somebody?" AND HE COULDN'T EVEN DO THAT. Just imagine how you would say it in real life and notice how flat it is when he says it.

Well to each his own. I thought she did adequately, with only a few complaints. Haha IMO she did better than Halle did in X3... and I actually like Halle.

Ray Park played Toad just fine. Same for Tyler Mane with Sabretooth.
Much preferred their takes over most takes on the characters in media.
