And now I have some awkward mental images, thanks for the good laugh

Then there's the chance that while he's not Force-sensitive, there is a remnant of the Force in him giving him a slight boost in survivability. Getting stabbed as he did doesn't have to mean instant death. The lightsaber would cauterize any wound it has inflicted and he would die over time due to organ failure instead.

Then again, it would appear BW treats those injuries on a case by case scenario and depending on where they want the story to go, you either do or don't die from such injuries.
You are correct on that. In the book Annihilation, Theron becomes injured and uses techniques he learned from Master Zho on how to deal with the pain to temporarily make it stop until he received medical treatment and gives him the chance to keep pushing through and complete his objectives.
Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!

So yes from what I saw that shot was survivable.
Old thread but yes, this is mostly accurate. The entire entry and exit is hidden (but it has to be lower than his chest because his chest was visible in the cut-scene yet the saber wasn't. So it'd be kidney/belly area entry. And since Vinn is posed so much lower than Theron I would say it's probably even his waist/belly area, and Theron grabbing his chest was just whatever default animation they had for "pain", since after getting thrown by Vinn at Lana he is clenching his stomach again... :P
But yeah, premade animations and hidden parts for dramatic effects all around on that one.

I saw a show that a guy was sleeping and an assassin creeped in and put his gun with silencer point rested on the dude middle of his chest and pulled the trigger. I thought 'yup he is dead meat.' turned the station about 10 minutes later channel surfing back down and stopped on same show and that dude that was shot point blank right in the middle of his chest. Was alive and driving a car from that same assassin, trying to run him off the road. WTH!!!! so i just like turned the station again. So if a dude in a stupid un-realistic movie can survive a point blank shot to the mid of chest. Then Theron can survive a light saber to his Heart, Lungs, Spleen and the Spinal Cord, and go soak in a kolto tank and be just fine in the morning.

But my Sorc, that mean SoB, he left him there for his betrayal. He could of told his Commander no matter what. But he thought he knew best and it cost him his life.

Take Care & Be well....

Rub dirt on it. There was plenty of dirt there for him to rub on it.

Then he could walk it off.

Except, now he's dead.
