About the Movie
In Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks new mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past.
Just as good as the The Force Awakens
This movie has had a truck load of bad reviews, and most of the people who wrote the reviews didn’t like the Force Awakens. So if you enjoyed the Force Awakens, you’ll enjoy this.
The first half needs patience, and once the second half kicks in, you’ll be pleased and blown away. I’m excited for Episode IX, since JJ Abrams is going to direct it just like he did the Force Awakens. I really enjoyed Rian Johnson’s (the director of the Last Jedi) part in this new trilogy, but JJ Abrams is personally one of my favourite directors.
I would say that The Last Jedi stands in between Return of the Jedi and The Empire Strikes Back along with the Force Awakens right beside it.
Not so good.
Lots of humour that often seems out of place of lifting one out of the drama. Rey is just boring and her scenes are dull as dishwater. Luke is under-utilised. Rose is a plumber who suddenly is able to be pilot amongst other skills. Carrie is phoning it in
To be honest I found myself wanting Kylo to win.
I love Star Wars but this felt like a Marvel movie in space but not as good.
A Revolutionary episode
Probably the first Star Wars movie after Empire Strikes Back that dares to break the patterns of previous episodes and takes the narrative into new places. There are a few plot holes here and there, so it's not a perfect movie, but it's strengths outway it's weaknesses. These being it's trademark fun and spectacle and also the performance of Mark Hamill as a grumpy, but witty old hermit.
