Pros:
- By far the best looking Star Wars Film
- Light Saber Battles are awesome and well choreographed. Cons: 1. Left open plot lines from The Force Awakens(TFA). - TFA made Snokes background a major plotline, this move did not explain
Pros:
- By far the best looking Star Wars Film
- Light Saber Battles are awesome and well choreographed.

Cons:
1. Left open plot lines from The Force Awakens(TFA). - TFA made Snokes background a major plotline, this move did not explain any of it. - TFA made Rey's background a big deal, this movie provided an unsatisfactory resolution. (What's the point of making them a mystery in TFA, if they're nobodies?) - TFA setup Finn to be force sensitive, no further development here. - TFA made out Snoke to be supremey powerful, he met an anticlimactic end in this movie.
2. Poor overall plot. - Casino subplot was unecessary, when you think about it. Why did the purple haired lady hide her plan? If she had disclosed it the casino would have been unnecessary. - The whole Casino scene was unnecessary, it ended up failing overall. - Finn's romance with the asian girl was poorly written. Her character was not developed, it felt forced. TFA had some romantic tension with Rey and Finn, not furthered in this movie. - How do bombs "fall" in gravity? - This was a problem with TFA as well, but how the hell does Rey overcome Elite Guards without training? 3. Betrayal of Luke Skywalker. - Luke spent the first trilogy trying to redeem his father, you're telling me the same Luke, would kill his nephew after he sensed a little bit of darkness? GTFOH!!!
4. Comedy was forced and cheesey and out of place.

How they took an iconic character who's motivations we know from the previous films and then crap all over that history and expect people to accept it? I left the cinema stunned and the more I thought about what I saw the more I grew to dislike and now I absolutely hate the film. No Solo, EpIX or any future Disney SW for me. Expand

strange considering TLJ was the most anticipated movie of 2017) were not enough to sway me. It wasn't an enjoyable film, mostly because the main characters were written as unlikable, miserable jerks. Where's all the mystery, excitement, and fun? Aren't Star Wars movies supposed to be fun? Perhaps I missed the memo.

I wanted to be surprised and shocked (in a good way) after the nostalgia hash of TFA. But instead it made me feel angry from the start, as it became clear that this movie had thrown out TFA. I get that Rian Johnson didn't want to just blindly follow Abram's mystery boxes. But it felt like he'd only read a a two page summary of TFA and didn't care about creating a trilogy. The plots were also disappointing. The theme was failure, I got that quickly,but the film was a failure. Seriously, after the movie in just walked out with my nephew and we both just said we didn't want to talk about it. Everyone I've spoken to who saw it thought it played for cheap laughs and made fun of characters who deserved better plotlines and character arcs. There were some amazing things about this movie. But it fundamentally failed to engage me or excite me. I don't want to see the next movie. I don't want to watch more meaningless pap which critics have portrayed as the best ever Star Wars ever. I won't watch the next one. Expand

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Absolutely disrespectful film to all Star Wars fans and intelligent people. So many plot holes, that film just drowning in it. So many garbage stuffed in movie just for check. They don't actually reveal heroes, but show you stupid don't funny joke or action and large amount cute animals, hello Disney, bye bye Star Wars. Sanity or reason in this film logic they just forgot to put it. I add 2 points just because some heroes were better shown and some scenes were not bad. But it's one grain of logic in the desert off stupidity.

SUMMARY: Look at the user rating. You just can't take glorious SW Universe and put anything you want in it. Please, learn from SW Extended Universe.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Worst best seller of the history, Leia flying, stupid jokes like the "iron", those ridiculous birds, in that case better watch Spaceballs. Luke denigrated to the worst garbage of human being and with powers ridiculous for a Jedi, he died stupidly, please remake this film, this film should never had existed.I don't say that it is a bad movie because Luke died, in Episode VII Han Solo died and killed the possibility to ever play together with Luke again, but anyway I liked the movie as it was a decent plot, if you are going to kill a super idol do it for a good reason, like it was done in Episode 7, not kill him because he got tired after use too much Jedi Power and leave episode 9 with nobody, even with a good plot you should be very careful if kill the Luke, now everybody is dead as Carrie Fisher died in the real world, whats the point of Episode 9? Who will be the stars, Chewbacca and androids? Unless they bring Lando to episode 9 for sure only teenagers will go to cinema to watch it. I left my family in Christmas to go to watch this abomination, for a Star Wars movie, anyone would understand, but leave Christmas for this garbage? Most of fans say "pretend that this movie never existed" but it is difficult, specially that there will be an episode 9. Rian Johnson, you killed Star Wars. Expand

The worst part about this movie is not that it's a poorly written movie with terrible (or non-existant) character arcs, poor plot, out of place humor or ham-fisted political commentary. It's not even that it ignores established Star WarsThe worst part about this movie is not that it's a poorly written movie with terrible (or non-existant) character arcs, poor plot, out of place humor or ham-fisted political commentary. It's not even that it ignores established Star Wars canon or lore.

It is awful because it attempts to ruin everything about Star Wars that made it such a beloved story in the first place. Instead of wisdom, we get book burning. Instead of optimism and faith, we get nihilism. And instead of hope, we get pessimism and despair.

This movie is an all out assault on Star Wars as a phenomenon, it left me cold. It seems as if the people in charge of the franchise at Disney really hate the original trilogy.

I've watched the movie in the theatre, thought about watching it a second time, but I really did not like many things in this movie. So instead of giving Disney more of my money, I've came here to express my point of view.

The director ignored many aspects and plots from previous movies and novels of the franchise. Even from The Force Awakens.

I felt that many characters were thrown there just to be a mean to an end, even the big ones. Which I think it's not a big problem if you are making a movie in a new universe, or trying to push a new franchise/saga. But it can be a big problem on a well stabilished universe like this.

A lot of things that could have been or needed to be explained, are just ignored or like Rian Johnson himself later said "aren't important to the history", or "weren't important in the 70s movie".

They had an oportunity to make an amazing trilogy, where the old character passes the torch to the new hero and teaches her about the things that he did right and wrong, so she can become even stronger than him. And they could have done it in a way that feels respectful, nostalgic, coherent with the character and at the same time showing that he is not a perfect being.

But they didn't. And in my point of view, there are things in this movie that some Star Wars fans may find wrong, incoherent and in some cases even downright insulting.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I would give this zero stars if possible. This film is not only an awful piece of storytelling in its own right, but also a complete F*CK YOU to fans of the original trilogy. I can't comprehend how this film has had such good reviews from the critics but am gratified to see the sheer number of fans giving it poor reviews. Leia Poppins, Luke being Not-Luke and dying on a rock from doing nothing but using the Force, an entire sub-story (in a film with very few plot lines) being entirely pointless and characters like Akbar being killed off with utter disregard are just a few of the things so very, very wrong about this sh*tstorm of a movie. The film makers need to have a long hard look at themselves in the mirror. Expand

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This movie is a HUGE disappointment for me. A bad Star Wars movie is still an entertaining movie, but this is by far the worst Star Wars movie ever made. There are so many reasons this movie sucks. -Superfluous characters and subplots (who doesn't love Laura Dern and Benico del Toro but their characters had no reason to be in this movie, Fin/Rose mission to casino to find "Master Codebreaker" absurd). -Idiotic plot holes (hello, you can't drop gravity bombs in space, what they are electromagnetic?, then you don't need to get "over" your target, who is going to fly those suicide bombers anyway?)(fly a ship through the big New Order vessel?, try leading with that)(a whole long chase scene? Han Solo can take the Falcon out of hyperspace in the short distance of a moon's atmosphere, just hyperspace in front of them, duh!), etc.etc. -Throwing away stuff that has been built up (who is Snoke and how did he come to power?, who cares?, he's dead already!)(Knights of Ren?, never heard of them)

-Pitiful, not menacing villains. -Squandered opportunities (fight between Fin and Captain Phasma is like 2 seconds, WTF?)(almost no light saber duels). -Ridiculous retconning (you don't need to train for years to be a Jedi, Rey is a force expert with no training at all)(Yoda can just come along and shoot force lightning?, where was he when Palpatine was trying to kill Luke Skywalker?)(did I mention flying a ship through another vessel? makes it a lot easier to blow up a Death Star). -Forced political rhetoric (we get it, horse racing bad, capitalism bad, so I get my money back, right?). -Contrived, cringe-worthy "romance" (I love you and will sacrifice my life for you even though we just met).

-Cannon and characters completely inconsistent with previous movies, including the movie to which this is supposedly a sequel. But the biggest travesty is how they treated Luke Skywalker's character. He was totally wasted and betrayed. Also, how pitiful the resistance is; they have accomplished nothing since the first Trilogy and are worse off than ever before. The more I think about it, the angrier I get. Then to top it off, they harp on this theme of letting go of the past. Yeah, the past when Star Wars movies where great. This movie is garbage.

AMENDMENT - STRIKE THE LAST JEDI FROM STAR WARS CANNON! - I know some of you will dismiss this as pathetic, obsessive, sad, fan-boy wallowing because I didn't get the movie I wanted, but the more I think about it, the more I think I'm right. As I have reflected on the film, my opinion hasn't changed, it has gotten stronger. Every day I scan the new user reviews on metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes and watch the negative reviews pile up, and their beef is the same as mine. I know there are people who liked this movie. My son liked it, but he is young and didn't grow up watching Star Wars, and he loves Kylo Ren. I've reviewed a bunch of positive user reviews (the critic reviews are utter BS, so I don't concern myself with those). They fall into a few camps: people who didn't grow up watching Star Wars (thus reasonably impressed with a $200M blockbuster), people familiar with Star Wars who don't like it or are board of it, people who grew up with Star Wars but are not fans, apologists (people who love Star Wars and are trying to find a silver lining) and idiots (people who grew up with and liking Star Wars that also like this movie). Most non-apologist reviews usually say something along the lines of "this movie broke the mold and went in different directions". Here's the thing… if you want something new, go make something new. I'm not saying make it stale, but there is Star Wars cannon and a Star Wars formula that make Star Wars great (and it includes dog-fights, light sabers, the Force, master/apprentice relationships, light side vs. dark side, awesome villans, and courageous, noble heroes and Jedi Knights; if you don't like it, feel free to enjoy another franchise). This movie is a) garbage by any measure, b) a TERRIBLE Star Wars movie and totally inconstant with canon including the movie to which it is supposed to be a sequel, c) a total FU to Star Wars fans, and d) gives one of the most iconic heroes in cinematic history the worst send-off imaginable. So, I am praying for a miracle. I think everyone who thinks this Star Wars movie sucks, and that we (and Luke) deserve better, boycott Disney products (and I love Disney, so this is extreme for me) until they agree to remake or completely retcon Episode VIII. Also, that director RJ, and all the execs that approved this terrible movie, should never be allowed anywhere near the Star Wars franchise - There, fan-boy rant concluded.

The Last Jedi is just not a good movie, if this were any other franchise we would all be laughing about it in a MST3K/Rifftrax sort of way; because Star Wars means so much to people there is "polarization".

Lame jokes, unlikeable characters, a boring plot that goes nowhere and some of the worst editing and pacing I've seen this side of the Transformers franchise. In six months when this trash is on home media all of its supporters are going to have a hard time defending it. The only good thing about this movie is the commitment by every actor to try and make it work.

A friend of mine said it best:

"I was thinking today what non-Star Wars fans see when they are shown Star Wars, is just random crap about space and aliens. When a Star Wars fan watches Star Wars, they see the archetypal hero's journey in full effect--full with a deep mythological force as old as storytelling itself. When you make a Star Wars film that tries to chuck all of that out the window to 're-invent' or 'subvert' the previous saga...a Star Wars fan just sees random crap about space and aliens. And that's why critics, many of which perhaps never understood Star Wars to begin with, saw the random crap about space and aliens and thought, 'Sure this is what they like'."

I couldn't agree more. This movie left me completely cold, and I didn't think a Star Wars movie was capable of doing that. The worst part is...I don't think there is a way for it to be fixed. Disney has now opened the floodgates for this franchise to be a Transformers or Fast & Furious - just disposable trash, albeit trash that makes a billion dollars at the box office. The biggest disappointment of the year. Fans have a right to be heartbroken and angry.

Dull characters and side plots introduced in this movie just because "why not to add something that can be added". So far this is the worst movie of all 9 (episode 1-8 and including Rogue One) buy its plot and new characters. Comparing this movie to original trilogy is like comparing "Alien: Covenant" to original "Alien" and "Alients", or like comparing "Terminator: Salvation" to "Terminator 2" Expand

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. TLJ is a terrible movie with more plot holes than the Empire has Tie Fighters. I wouldn't really care, except the way Rian Johnson made Luke Skywalker into the Larry David of Jedi Masters was ridiculous. No way Luke ended up a grumpy old man just waiting around by himself doing nothing. No way he disrespects the Skywalker light saber by throwing it over his shoulder. No way he gets his ass kicked by Mary Sue Rey who is perfect in every way, but has no training whatsoever. Think about how lame The Empire Strikes Back would have been if Luke already was the greatest warrior in the galaxy from the beginning and could kick Obi Wan's and Darth Vader's ass without having to go through the trials and events that eventually made him stronger, made him a Jedi. I will never watch another Star Wars movie after this CF. Expand

If this is to be compared to The Empire Strikes Back, then it has failed in the one thing that a mid-point sequel in a trilogy should do; I no longer care to watch the finale.

Is it because it is too quick to introduce new features to the force? No, I don't care. Is it because it because I'm a Star Wars 'fanboy' and feel betrayed by the uncharacteristic actions of canonised characters? Not a jot although others seem to be. Truth is, there is just no story; nothing. It is 152 minutes of great soundtrack and pretty effects. All the subplots leave you wondering whether they are included just to showcase nostalgic elements. Unfortunately, the whole film is a mere collection of dead-end and pointless subplots. Humour and cuteness are uncomfortably forced, and relationships are unnaturally rushed. It is not even possible to provide a spoiler as it ends where it started, with no arc, either for the characters or in terms of plot. Sure, people die, but they seemed like they wanted to. About half way, I felt the same. I awarded it 2/10 as the actors performed well. Everyone else above the line was terrible; guilty of nothing more than raiding our earnings. Most worryingly, Disney also appear to have bribed most respected critics. That must have been one comprehensive press pack as this film truly is a turkey that has irredeemably ruined Christmas forever along with respect for a lot of reviewers.

Terriblemente escrita. Incluso envía mensajes politicos y la diversidad como ejes argumentales. Fuera de lugar. Absurdo.
Es probable que la saga no se recupere de este absurdo intento por ganar dinero creando una expansión del universo Star Wars sin reglas, sin un eje de personajes, en donde el siguiente director pueda hacer lo que le de la gana.
Star Wars se intenta vender solo como una marca, donde el contenido puede ser cualquier cosa en el espacio. Terrible.

***SPOILERS***

Luke Skywalker did not act like himself at all. The Jedi who once stood up against the 2 most powerful Sith in the galaxy, and sensed the good in one of the most evil Sith Darth Vader was so scared of what Kylo Ren might do he tried to kill him. Luke was too scared to confront the first order so he projected himself over there instead. Leia somehow with little force training used the force to survive in space after surviving and explosion to fly to the next ship. The new character Rose was a waste of screen time and her subplot with Finn was too long and did little if anything to add to the story.

Rian Johnson continues his personal series of flops by writing this awful fan-fiction. It focuses on the father-daughter relationship with Luke & Rey, and mostly a simple young female janitor to set-up a trite romance with Finn later on. There’s extraordinary pacing issues, and the longstanding characters act as though this is their very first Star Wars film. There is no pay-off in the end, and the humor is particularly bad. It tries so hard to be different in formula from The Empire Strikes Back, that it does nothing exciting. What could’ve been a fantastic departure from the obvious sci-fi standard is instead a tedious spin-off. Episode IX could ignore The Last Jedi entirely and no one would be the wiser. Expand

I paid matinee prices so I didn't get too ripped off but wow I'd be really mad to pay full price and do 3D too! Everything is wrong here, nothing makes one moment of sense, the acting is just terrible beyond words (except Mark Hamill), everything feels out of order most of the time and never for a moment was I thinking "wow this is going great." I see what happened here now, Disney's Kathleen Kennedy stated in an interview they write stories then fit characters around them. They don't write for the sake of characters. That's exactly what this felt like, as if the stories being given had no relation to any of these people we learned about in Force Awakens, instead it feels like they have been put into an alternate universe where everything has different universal constants/laws even peoples thought processes. I never thought a modern day film could ever be this bad, especially one with such a large budget as this I KNOW NOW I WAS WRONG. Nothing can fix this mess, it's written worse than a childs story, it's absurd nonsense that goes nowhere. I'd rather watch the prequels every single day of my life than see this one more time.

This is not Star Wars unfortunately.

Whenever I watched Star Wars, the original three, the prequels or the animated TV shows, I liked them because they gave back the Star Wars feeling with the characters and the immense story. With this episode, after a disastrous Episode 7, I am hopeless. The movie is long, packed with action which is good but the characters are not well written and most of them are misrepresented, not to mention the modern age plight in the movie:
- the new characters are not capable of taking over from the old characters, they are just vague and you feel like there is no point in the whole movie. - the old characters, nearly all of them, seem to be totally different from previous parts. They are not who they were, they have different ideals. - women are strong, brave and clever whereas men are cowardly, stupid or impulsive without brains (in old Star Wars movies we had strong women and men characters and it wasn't pushed, here it is pushed)

All in all, could have been a great movie because I believe old and new could have existed next to each other but they didn't even try to do that, they just wanted to get rid of the old and introduce the new which turned out to be a failure.
3 out of 10.

The thirty minutes used for the stupid subplot on casino planet could have been well used to explain all the answers to the questions posed in EP 7. I'm really hoping box office will plummet so they know what an incredible disservice they did to fans.

Visually stunning, horrendous story!

If you expect a movie to look beautiful and have some amazing special effects, this is perfect for you.
If you want a cohesive and compelling story, do yourself a favour and save your money. The movie consists of three main storylines and two of those are 100% artificial and would not have happened if certain characters acted in a logical way. It felt like they just existed to give character stuff to do.

Furthermore, you really experience the lack of a common thread for this sequel trilogy of Star Wars. Apparently, the writers/director did not plan out major plot points in advance and loose story ends from the previous movie are mostly ditched. In addition, some characters have a different personality than before and no visible arc throughout the film.

I would give 'The Last Jedi' zero points but admittedly the visuals are great and the score from John Williams is top-notch as always. Nevertheless, terrible Sci-Fi movie and even worse Star Wars film.

Rian Johnson took all of the FA plot lines/setup plus the remaining characters (Luke and Leia) as well as the history and myths of the Star Wars we all loved and took a massive huge dump on it.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. No I am not a bot, and no I am not some disgruntled Star Wars fan. Instead of the media investigating if bots are to blame for low audience ratings, the media should investigate how it was able to garner such high critical praise--strong-arming? bribery? Because TLJ is a very, very bad film. And not bad in a way that can be blamed on one person's tastes compared to another, but bad in ways that are otherwise undeniable in the eyes of critics: the writing is horrendous; the plot is all over the map but somehow ends with the main characters, as well as the the rebellion and empire, in exactly the same place as the beginning of the movie--i.e. in 2.5 hours of plot hole after plot hole, NOTHING HAPPENS other than setting up for another money-grabbing sequel; all of the major story turns are repeats of the original trilogy; the themes are sophomoric even for Star Wars, especially the whole "learn from your mistakes and let them go" bit that Luke, a supposedly enlightened Jedi supremely in touch with the interconnectivity of the universe has to learn from a second-coming of Yoda. Viewers can argue about the casting (horrible), the camp humor (bad), and Star Wars nerds can argue about the director taking the franchise in a different direction, but there is no way that critics can sincerely praise this film; something else is going on.

About half way through I felt like it should be wrapping up soon but was repeatedly quickly disappointed that the action would pick up again and I would have to endure another long round of nothing really making much sense and too many explosions... what was the main plot? The characters were extremely annoying and shallow. If you insist on making more Star Wars movies, please do something better than this pile of vomit. What a disgrace. Expand

If anything, the quality of the script gives hope to potential screenwriters that their worst ideas could be optioned by Disney due to their zero quality control process.

It is a sad realisation that the Star Wars universe is probably dead now, but alas, will all these negative feelings be forgotten when Disney brings out the next Star Wars story?

Disney does not care how you feel about it, because they know it will make money regardless. They know (as i've read in some fans negative reviews) that people will go and $ee it again "Just to be sure it was as bad as I thought the first time". They know there are enough dedicated individuals who will find substance in a film where there really is none. They know people will still go and pay to see it, even you reading this now who is baffled at how The Last Jedi could have been made with such a garbage script.

I am truly amazed how fans justify the films shortcomings. I am in awe really and find their interpretations fascinating, though I'm mostly disappointed and sad they they have to stretch their opinions to make sense of this poorly written script. I'm disappointed because it shows that people don't care much about story or logic and can easily fool themselves in to thinking things that don't make sense, do. And that is really what it is. Disney has tapped in to that inherent human flaw of hoping for the best, and giving the benefit of the doubt for beloved stories in order to make money. That, if anything, is what should be admired about this whole sloppy mess. They've adopted the Star Wars religion, and be sure they know what they've got here, and will keep on producing awful stories in this genre because people will pay money and go see it regardless.

As far as I'm concerned, my interest in the Star Wars universe is done and dead. I won't be fooled in to paying to see any more Disney Star Wars, other negative reviewers here should pledge the same. There are better things out there and we still have the original (unedited or even the adywan edit) trilogy in our home collection which they can't make any money from. May the original trilogy Force be with us. 1 star for the special effects.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This was the single worst movie that I have ever had the displeasure of seeing in a theater. I've never actually considered leaving a cinema before in my life. The reasons for which this movie is just horrible range from big picture to nitty gritty, from personal opinions to objectively bad decisions. I'll lay it out as such.

Objectively bad:
- Fin and Rose's plot takes up half of the movie and accomplishes absolutely nothing.
- General Gender Studies's plan to escape the ship doesn't make any sense: "We're just going to abandon ship in these transports and hope that the enemy - who has surrounded us and is watching our every move - doesn't notice dozens of ships leaving out of the hangar."
- Fin actually tries to make himself useful near the end in what was about to probably be the best scene in the movie but Rose ruins it because "MUH LOVE INTEREST" or some such crap.

Personal Opinion:
- Awful unfunny middle-school humor such as Poe's prank call in the beginning scene
- Movie is saturated with jokes that don't ever allow us to take it seriously. For example, when Luke asks Rey where she is from and Rey says she's from nowhere, this is in the middle of an important conversation but Luke kills the mood with a poorly timed joke about Jakku really being nowhere.
- There was no reason for Admiral Tumblr to hide her plan to her staff. It's clear that they just did this so that Poe would mutiny and so that they could use the moment to talk about "toxic masculinity" since that's what Poe's character has been reduced to in this movie.
- Terrible acting overall. The characters speak like children. Remember in the casino scene when Fin is positively GAWWKING at the glamour of the place and can't even contain himself because apparently he's as excitable as a puppy on steroids? And when he and Rose find the generic master hacker they literally stop and stare and exclaim out loud "There he is! The master hacker!" Didn't anyone ever teach these idiots not to scream their intentions out loud?
- Goddamn SUPER LEIA Nitty Gritty:
- World War 2 style gravity bomb bays in SPACE
- Multiple times where a ship is exposed to the vacuum of space without there being a forceful depressurization (leia coming back onto the ship, the last bomber in the opening scene literally having holes in it, the hangar of Snoke's ship still having air in it after getting shredded through by the Resistance flagship)
-Rose's awful quote after "saving" Fin is objectively incorrect and stupid.

The only reason I give this movie a 2 rather than a 0 is because of a couple select moments which are good. I enjoyed Luke's force apparition near the end and I thought it was cool when Vice Admiral Vag went full 9/11 on Snoke's ship. That said I would have preferred if Luke had actually been at his death in person, and I think it would have been better if it was Admiral Ackbar who went "Allahu Ackbar!" rather than Field Marshall Feminist but whatever at least those moments were still cool.

The Last Jedi destroys the hero of the series, makes the end result of episode 7 seem pointless, and manages to really back the franchise in a corner by implying that there will be no more Jedi, which is a major drawback to the future of interest in this galaxy. At first watch I think people will be entertained by this film but not long after the show is over it is far too easy to find glaring mistakes in the plot that are infuriating to any hardcore fan.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I see the media deflecting the criticism of this movie by accusing alt right groups and bots of review spamming the site. I am not a bot and I'm not affilated with any alt right groups. I have been a SW fan my entire life, as many of my fellow fans who were utterly disappointed with the movie. These are all people voicing their opinion, deal with it. Here is mine:

What I liked:
-Mark Hamill and Adam Driver were amazing.
-Many people found that scene ridiculous, but I personally liked Leia using the Force to pull herself back to the ship. It was already established that she was Force sensitive when she sensed Luke in Ep. 5.
-The visuals and sounds were good.
-Yoda's appearance.
-When "TIE Fighter Attack" started playing I actually felt like I was watching a Star Wars movie.

What I disliked:
-The movie opens with a lame "your mom" joke.
-Poe Dameron sacrifices an entire squad of bombers without any regret because he is the embodiment of "toxic masculinity".
-After Leia pulls herself back, Poe opens the door to open space, but the people don't get sucked out by the vacuum (Ep. 3 and TCW got this right).
-Holdo doesn't tell her plan to Poe so he is forced into making a mistake, which is intended to make the audience think that he's dumb. Thing is, Holdo is at fault here for being a bad leader and not communicating with an established star pilot of the Resistance.
-Casino planet was boring and it consisted about Disney (!) saying that capitalism is bad. Rich people=bad, poor people=good.
-The movie structure is very similar to Empire Strikes Back, except the battle of Hoth takes place at the end of the movie.
-The throne room events are very similar to the one in Return of the Jedi.
-Rey, after a couple days of lightsaber training, is able to defeat several of the elite guards. She seems to be just as potent in combat as Kylo Ren, who had been trained as a Jedi/Knight of Ren his entire life. Luke Skywalker in the OT practiced for weeks to be a decent duelist and Force user, while in the Prequels Jedi trained their entire life from a very young age. What I'm saying is: Rey is undeniably a Mary Sue.
-Captain Phasma, heralded by the media as "the first female villain of SW" (she isn't, Asajj Ventress exists), gets 3 minutes of screen time, getting beaten by Finn. She seems like a running gag from a cartoon at this point.
-During the Battle of Crait, Rose stops Finn from saving the Resistance, and then drops the most cringeworthy line of the Star Wars franchise.
-Finn and Rose crash land in front of the AT-M6 line, kilometers away from the Resistance base. A few minutes later we see Finn dragging an unconscious Rose back to the base on foot. The First Order showed them mercy and didn't shoot them on the way back, or maybe they missed because Finn was walking so fast.
-I personally felt like Rian Johnson's biggest goal with this movie was to bamboozle fans with his pretentious plot twists. It felt a little forced to me because there were just too many.
-My biggest issue: The reason I wanted to watch this film was to see what happened to Luke. I felt like his character was mistreated and underused by Rian Johnson just to make way for Rey. Luke in this movie was a grumpy, scared and reluctant old man who had very minimal impact on the story. I wanted to see him get some love, maybe a bit of fan service like the one scene we got with Vader at the end of RO. Instead he shows up at the end of the movie as a distraction, sacrificing himself for the Resistance. But it turns out it wasn't him, he was just showing us a new kickass force power, great! He doesn't need to die! Maybe JJ Abrams can give him some justice in Ep. 9... Aaaaand he dies from exhaustion... Are you serious? RJ did a 180 with his character and then killed him off because people would be more interested in Luke than in Mary Sue. Luke Skywalker had to actually learn how to use the Force and to fight with a lightsaber. We saw his journey from a whiny farm boy to a wise Jedi Knight. What journey did Rey have? Expert pilot, Force user (who can lift a hundred rocks without any proper training) and lightsaber duelist from the beginning. Not Mary Sue btw.
-Then at the end of the film we see a child effortlessy using telekinesis to grab a broom. In the OT and prequels, characters needed training in the Force to be able to use these powers. Apparently in the sequels anybody who is Force sensitive can casually use telekinesis, mind tricks etc. This is another way Rian Johnson disregarded the previous lore.

This movie left me utterly uninterested in Episode 9, because I don't care about the new characters. They are boring, one-dimensional and didn't have a proper progression like Han or Luke.
This movie felt like a mockery of Star Wars mixed with political messages. I personally don't like watching my favourite franchise being used as a tool to push an agenda. This, paired with the poor plot and utter disrespect for Lucas' Saga is worth 0p

I signed up to Metacritic today because I am amazed at 1) how terrible "The Last Jedi" was and 2) how anybody could give this movie a decent score.

There are so many many problems with this movie, and these problems are well vetted by other users, so no need to rehash. But there are legitimate reasons to hate this movie well beyond the blindly dismissive buzzwords like "toxic masculinity" and "stubborn fanboys".

I will just give one example of how terrible this movie is. There is one scene in a casino where an alien dressed like Mr. Monopoly Pennybags (monocle and tuxedo) tries putting coins in BB-8, mistaking the droid to be a slot machine. Later in the movie, BB-8 fires these coins and kills stormtroopers. Let that sink in.

I've polled 30+ friends/family/co-workers on this movie. My admittedly informal poll found that those that thought the movie to be terrible were older, male, successful, traditional values, and of higher IQ (not all mutually exclusive). Anybody that was a big fan of the original trilogy categorically loathed the movie. Those that loved the movie (I found very few) were typically children and younger adult females.

If you loved the movie, I'm very happy for you. In fact, I'm jealous. But just know the way in which you are entertained is very different than the way in which I am entertained. Disney horrifically changed the tonality and subsequent audience for these films. They clearly pivoted the brand. I think I speak for many people given the negative user scores and quickly eroding gross receipts.

To that point, sadly I will not be going to Solo or Episode IX on opening weekend as I typically do. I may not go at all. I'll wait for the reviews first. This movie was so bad that it made me stop caring about Star Wars.

This movie is poor from two perspectives. First as a movie in general, e.g. script, plot, characters, and cinematic. and second as a star wars franchise movie.

1). This is just a poorly done movie / cinematic. --- contrived plot
--- poor character development, e.g. characters do not evolve, they remain static in their understanding of events and conflict from beginning until the end.
--- forced diversity, the character 'Rose' reeks of Disney forcefully placing ethnic diversity into the film as a matter of making a check on list. There is no point to this character and events or responsibilities of this character do not make any sense and are meaningless.

2) Bad Star Wars franchise movie
---No adherence to cannon. e.g. not consistent with established 'rules' of 'The Force'(e.g. Jedi training). Why didn't rebels use hyperspace kamikaze to former threats in previous movies?
---The visuals and action were a step down from previous movies. Where is the masterful Jedi vs. Sith light saber scene? Where is the Jedi taking control of the battle field or space in conflict?
---Lukes climatic buildup carried from episode VII was a big nothing and inconsistent with his matured character from Return of the Jedi. To be frank, we all wanted to see Luke's bad ass Master Jedi skills in action to save the resistance. ---No climatic battle with Supreme leader Snoke... by the way, can holy wood get away from the contrived throne room? No rulers sit day in and day out in a throne room. At least Darth Sidious's room was more of a command viewpoint to watch galactic warfare.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This movie is so bad, both me and my father who are lifelong fans are insulted. We both have seen every star wars in the theater since 1977, and we can honestly say that when Lucas sold it to Disney it was over because clearly the same man no longer has his fingerprints anywhere on the movies. Even Mark Hamill in recent interviews slammed this movie. "Its not how I would have handled the situation as Luke Skywalker." Lets go over some points why this movie was terrible: 1. The first three movies, 1977 1980 1982 were basically a space soap opera. You became emotionally invested in the main 7-10 characters. The movie plot was built around these characters with action but it was always about these characters which became family.
2. The new movies. Never build up characters up the same way. Who cares about that new pilot? Who really cares about Ren like you cared about Princess Leia? These people never grew or were introduced like a family as in the first movies. The were just individuals wandering around the plot points on separate paths. This did not allow you to become emotionally invested with them.
3. The plot is haphazard, like pieces of a puzzle scattered all about a table from a 1000 piece puzzle. There were many points where you were saying to yourself, why is this part here? For example, why am I watching an alien horse breakout for 15 minutes?
4. Weak bad guy. The first three star wars movies there was a strong bad guy. Darth Vader. This new bad guy? Unsure of himself. Weak. Self doubting. That is really poor for a movie. You want strong opposite polar characters. The bad and the good. Darth Vader and Princess Leia. 5. You can no longer vibe with the old characters they brought back. Its like going to prison for 30 years then coming back home and realizing you dont really know these people anymore. Leia is some old lady no longer with the fiery personality she once had. She doesnt look or act the same. No longer know or recognize her. Luke is now a quitter. Doesnt act like Luke Skywalker. Even tried to murder his apprentice in his sleep. Dies at the end for no reason, almost like he just gave up. Not the Luke I know. And Han just came back for a cameo last movie before he got dispatched. All of them never got back like a family, they were all on their own separate paths. And don't forget the awkward hug between Han and Leia. No romantic long drawn out kiss between them now that they are old, right?
6. Same old (general) storyline, poorly rehashed. Hey, didnt the republic win at then end of Star wars 6 in 1983? Once again its the empire or some version of it chasing down a small band of rebels. Already been there, done that.
So to recap, this was a jigsaw scattered movie with a weak plot with characters you cant emotionally invest in containing cameos of characters you formerly loved but cannot reconnect with basically redoing a movie plot that was already handed in the first three Star Wars movies. It is quite clear the that man who did the first 6 movies handed it off to someone else and these 2 recent movies are somewhat soulless in comparison, being cranked out by a corporate entity who bought the intellectual property with the motive of profit. Yes, of this writing, the movie made close to 800 million dollars. Which means the bottom line says they are going to make more. However as people clue in that these are not the same movies they used to be, profits will fall.
In my personal library I have on DVD on a shelf Star Wars (1977) The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and the Return of the Jedi (1983) along with the next 3 prequels from the early to mid 2000s (Star wars I-III). And as far as I am concerned, that is it. Series completed. These last two movies were like poor fan movies. Yes, this movie blew. I am going to have to cleanse the palate by watching the original Star Wars and forgot I ever saw this.

Little in the story makes sense, and the sequel to The Force Awakens failsThe Last Jedi is a film with lots of window dressing but little in the way of substance or originality. Saying it is poorly written is somewhat of an understatement. Little in the story makes sense, and the sequel to The Force Awakens fails to pick up on many of the unanswered questions left open in the previous film. Events are clumsily forced, resorting to hand-waving at best and having competent characters acting jarringly stupid and out of character at worst.

Many of the scenes in the movie are rehashed versions of scenes from The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, with the original participants in the scene substituted by the new cast. Usually there is a little twist making the scene slightly different than the original, but the movie becomes frustrating to watch as it rehashes scenes we’ve seen done better in previous films.

Not only that, but there are major things in both this and The Force Awakens that invalidate previous films and characters and makes you question what was the point of it all? Luke’s efforts to become a Jedi across three films seem wasted when Rey can exceed the power of one of the most powerful Force users in existence in about 20 minutes without having any training. The victory over the Empire means nothing when The First Order simply replaces them with their own playboy-dressing Emperor copy. Clones are no longer needed to have an infinite supply of Stormtroopers for yet again unexplained reasons. Even the victory over Starkiller base in The Force Awakens is disregarded as The First Order now apparently have conquered the entire galaxy, despite them being left vulnerable to retaliation for the atrocities committed in TFA.

While some parts feel a little too much like a video game, the movie’s special effects team and designers have generally done an outstanding job. And it would be unfair to not mention that there are a few very interesting and intense scenes that are not only epic, but also manage to capture the personality and relationship between key characters in the universe. In these moments it’s nice to see what is actually a great cast given an opportunity to show what they can do.

Unfortunately, these moments are rare in a lazily copy-pasted minimum effort story that leaves you wondering why Disney couldn’t be bothered to get a decent writer or writing team on board for such a prestigious project, instead of simply assuming the masses aren’t intellectually capable of looking past the flash, and that the usual review outlets lack the courage or integrity to call a spade a spade.

But maybe the joke’s on us, because ticket sales are sky high and the critic scores are just about doubling the user scores across the web. For me personally, I have lost the appetite for watching the final chapter. But will people forgive the transgression or mindlessly shamble into the dark theater again next year? I fear they might.

The Director of The Last Jedi had little regard for creating continuity from the previous film. This movie also has several of the problems of the previous film of the sequal trilogy, The Force Awakens, such as the characters are very shallow and 1 demensial and are more or less more a "diverse" version of the original film. The protaganist Rey is the ultimate Mary Sue, and the antagonist Kylo Ren is not a very intimidating villian espically compared to pass star wars villians such as Darth Vader and Darth Maul.

The actions scenes were exciting but if you're a long time fan of Star Wars you will be sure to be disappointed.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I generally refrain from posting reviews, but after repeatedly hearing claims that the only critics of this movie were "russian bots" or "fanatic fanboys", I was compelled to make an account and post my review.

Where to start?

The single greatest problem with The Last Jedi is the writing. From the messy plot, to the egregious oversights and contradictions, to the absurd, repetitive dialogue ("Godspeed" and "page-turner" is all I'll say); the script of The Last Jedi stymies the movie to such a degree that even if everything else about it were great, it still wouldn't be a good movie.

But everything else isn't great. The lead actors are wooden and uninspired (with the exception of Mr. Driver, a lone bright spot. Fisher, Serkis, and Hamill were fine too, but alas this isn't their movie), though to be fair they aren't given much to work with. There's a plethora of 'jokes', which isn't inherently problematic, until you begin to realize they're only there to keep you from falling asleep. With every change of scenery there's a new "animal" to meet, and the movie takes extra care to ensure we get a lengthy, zoomed-in shot of each one's cute, pouting face (Don't worry if you didn't see them all, numerous toy versions will be available at your nearest retailer).

Some of scenes are carbon-copies of those found in previous Star Wars iterations (Hoth "Salt Edition"), others look like they were plucked right out of an anime strip (Snoke's Big Send-Off). On the flipside, we do get to meet some new characters. There's Benicio Del Toro's DJ, a hacker/thief who is perpetually on the verge of having a seizure, Kelly Marie Tran's Rose Tico (A play to overseas audiences in Asia? Or a sneaky way to further marginalize Finn's character? We'll never know), and finally Laura Dern's dear Admiral Holdo, a stoic, purple-haired rebel commander who just barely manages to lose out on the coveted "Worst Battle Tactician of 2017 Award" to General Hux and the entirety of the First Order military command (Self-sacrifice isn't heartfelt unless you let half of your forces die needlessly beforehand. And where are the TIE fighters?)

Now, in fairness, Rian Johnson does move the franchise forward quite a bit. We learn that there's much more to the Force than previously thought:
1. You can facetime your frenemies.
2. Force-ghosts are a thing (those silly Jedi in the past only used Holograms)
3. Remote light-saber activation (makes you wonder why we keep seeing all of this 'dueling' nonsense)
4. Out of oxygen? Never fear, the force-float is here!

We learn there are Space casinos where everyone dresses...wait for it...exactly like they do on Earth casinos! And apparently fuel is now a big deal, although sending out your smaller ships to collect some isn't allowed for some reason. Animal cruelty is BAD (but the planetary-genocides commited by the First Order in The Force Awakens have become a thing of the past. After all, a week is a long time to remember such trivialities).

So yeah, that's the jist. Some people may complain about things like Luke's behavioral changes, or Snoke's unspoken backstory, or Rey's 'grounded' parents, but those things aren't important. What's important is you go into this movie without clearly formed expectations, or a clearly functioning brain for that matter. I recommend copious amounts of your favorite drug or intoxicant of choice, so you can watch the lovely special effects without wondering why the First Order ships don't use hyperspeed to overtake the fleeing rebel fleet, or why the rebel fighters are lining up to face the oncoming AT-ATs in trenches a la WWI and not hiding behind their blast-proof door.

If you don't, you may just start wishing for everyone to kamikaze each other.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This latest cinematic installment, and I say installment rather than addition as addition would suggest consideration of and positive effect upon all or any of the preceding material, to one of the most beloved stories in the world has, with all its promotion, anticipation and critics reception, achieved the incredible feat of creating something of an "emperors new clothes syndrome" across the world.

Rian Johnson, the tailor of this empty garb, has some how been able to convince Disney and those we trusted to parade and praise the work he has done, whilst the public and many of the eager fans clap happily along and cheer for what an amazing spectacle he has created. Then there are those like myself, akin to the little boy staring at the emperors flaccid member in confusion and shock, whom raise their hands and point out the fact that the entire experience is an embarrassment.

Regardless of poor writing, story structure, bad and misplaced humor, sloppy editing, terrible plot devices, blatant marketing and money making "creative" decisions, zero character development and shoddy or hammed up acting by many, I am not sure why those at Disney responsible for the Star Wars property would chose to stray so much from the core material for these chapters in the saga. At their heart these stories are about the legacy of the Skywalker's, even the original title of episode 4 was "Adventures of Luke Starkiller, As Taken From the Journal of the Whills, Saga 1: The Star Wars". So, in my opinion, The last Jedi and then chapter 10 should have at least concluded that arc properly. With the choice for Luke in this movie and the path of Ben Solo, the legacy of the Skywalker lineage seems to have been cast aside in order the start crafting the next chapter for a new generation. The expansion of the Star Wars universe is something everyone wants, be it the fans or those with financial interests, and the creation of material to introduce people to new characters and worlds is wonderful, but not at the expense of the previous material and hard work done by thousands of people over decades.

With the originals, George Lucas aimed to create something ground-breaking and exciting. He used his knowledge of previous cinema storytelling and strong narrative to fashion a new way to tell the same type of story. He wanted to use the latest techniques to craft something fresh but recounted the same kind of messaging his inspiration told or he himself believed. Even in the prequels, be it you love or hate them, were efforts in the same vein yet, unlike Johnson, George Lucas managed to maintain the heart of the universe he created whilst telling the story he wanted.

What Disney and Johnson have done with the Last Jedi is disappointing, with no respect towards the original material or consideration towards the correct tonality for the genre let alone Star Wars itself, something that for all peoples gripes with TFA, the entire team got right and were respectful of. With TLJ they have seemingly tried to make Star Wars more relevant by changing the tone of the film, through choices of language, acting, character prioritization and constantly hammering the message that the old is to be brushed away and only the now, new and future is worth considering. Such a message might sound like a rallying call towards progress and one which may resonate with the ever increasingly impatient youth of each generation, but is one that also has the frighteningly narrow minded connotation that the past should be forgotten, that the old and more experienced are best not considered, that the mistakes previous generations made are better left behind because they were after all mistakes. Yet in doing so Johnson's message forgets the fact that with experience comes learning's that would die as result. The scene with Yoda in the film momentarily suggests that Johnson may begin to craft a worthwhile message but unfortunately he chooses to be "unexpected" and we are not provided with this important lesson as we see Yoda burn the books he considers useless. We see many of these types of lessons clumsily delivered in the film which many chose to defend as brave and bold choices or justify as holding deeper meaning, yet for all the arguing it can not be denied that they are inherently non Star Wars in both content and delivery.

All in all, there is a great deal more to say on the Last Jedi, be it superficially or in digging deeper and searching for answers, comparisons, metaphors, connotations or messages, but my experience with this film is that it is the only Star Wars film I have not enjoyed watching and that was from the very first scene of poor humor between Poe and Hux, right through Luke's space walrus molestation, past the ill conceived side quest & beyond the character assassination of a childhood cinematic hero. I will not be interested in seeing the final chapter of the Skywalker arc and will take solace in the words of Mark Hamill...its just a movie

JJ had set up RJ for an easy lay up/slam dunk after the TFA, and yet RJ somehow manages to alienate half the SW fanbase and make a completely non sensical SW film. Director RJ has managed to defile 40 years of Star Wars history and traditions in one fell swoop. Not even the stellar performance of Adam Driver can save this film from the garbage compactor. The Last Jedi is akin to the Phasma character, a lot of hype, with very little payoff and ultimately hugely disappointing and disrespectful.

The Finn/codebreaker storyline went nowhere. On the one hand, the daring, against-all-odds mission is supposed to work - it’s Star Wars!. On the other, even if you want it to fail and teach Po a lesson (always obey your superiors even when they seem to be leading your entire movement to certain death - a sickening betrayal of the whole ‘rebel’ ethos), they should have killed off Finn. There are so many things I could criticize about this movie, but I’ll just do one more. Why exactly are we supposed to care about the Resistance? No one responded to their distress call - clearly the rest of the galaxy doesn’t thing the First Order is all that bad if they’re unwilling to fight against them. Okay, one more thing, sorry. Why did the movie end with broom kid? I don’t care about broom kid, no one cares about broom kid. Every other movie ends with main characters - a concrete summation of coming conflict or a recent victory - this one ends with an abstract appeal to a notion of hope. Broom kid probably doesn’t even care or know about the First Order, he just wants to be freed. Just another tiny instance of this film’s message of subversion. Everything about the movie seems to betray some aspect of ‘Star Wars’. This is how a culture dies. Expand

In short this is a really difficult movie to review. There is so much wrong with this that as you try to lay out the criticisms in some sort of coherent fashion you are bombarded with memory after memory of this mess of a film.

It starts fairly well, the iconic scrolling text and opening are solid despite some daft spaceship designs (bombers... in space? And it ends as well as you might expect) the brief space battle looks good but it too heavy handed and sets the tone for this movie; it wants to be emotionally hard-hitting and slapstick without succeeding at either.

The comedy elements: often mentioned but I found them so unobtrusive or ineffective that I won't mention them further beyond that they were often at the expense of the audience.

The story premise is a fairly good one and could have worked (plucky rebellion are being pursued by a vastly superior First Order force and need to think their way out of almost certain defeat) but every arc and subplot is self-defeating at best or outright awful at worst. The Force Awakens did not do a very good job of uniting the characters it hopes to build this franchise upon and compounds the problem by including more characters that are even less fleshed out - if asked I could not describe Finn, Rey or even Poe except in the vaguest of terms - which leads to the bigger problem.

What the hell is going on? Is there a Republic, who are the Resistance, what situation are they in, what planets got blown up and what was actually lost by the First Order's attack? The world building is non-existent, I have -no- idea what the Resistance is what it's fighting for what challenges it faces and I cynically expect it is kept nebulous to allow lazy writers to shoe-horn in details as it needs them down the line.

I had expected to enjoy this, and I could not believe how embarrassed I was to be sitting there watching this film. I spent the majority of the excessive runtime staring at the screen incredulously; the choices and direction this film takes are breathtakingly stupid in places (Space Leia anyone?) and seriously detract from the story which begins disintegrating almost immediately after the opening scene. During the screening I was in there were regularly groans and whispered complaints, even strangers behind me were asking me if I were seeing what they were, and there was not a single laugh to be had. The Force Awakens for all its faults was still enjoyable, and the audience was right there carried along (admittedly once you left the theater or attempted a second viewing the spell was broken) but this was one of the least joyful experiences I have ever had watching a film.

Everyone outside of Luke Skywalker (with some uneasy character development) was a single note character, they were whatever emotion they happened to be portraying at that moment. From the writing and narrative it was impossible to determine what any of these characters principles or motivations are. Granted, Kylo and Rey get some intrigue that worked better than I expected only for it to unravel in an utterly pointless confrontation towards the end of the movie - and by then I just wanted it to end.

There is so much that did not work in this film and it is bitterly disappointing. I don't think I'll be watching the next one, and I'm not someone who would support boycotts or petitions for a remake or any of that silliness, I have just seen all I need to see and don't want any more.

TL;DR Force Awakens was fun whilst I was watching it, but does not hold up to further viewings.
Rogue One was watchable but utterly meh and suffered from some casting issues.
The Last Jedi was badly thought through, regularly undermined itself and uncomfortable viewing. There are a few good moments peppered throughout, but they are destroyed by terrible writing and confounding plot choices. Not that the Last Jedi is hard to follow, you just find yourself wondering about how these ideas made it to the screen. It reminds you it is a movie at every turn, and a very bad one at that.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Yes, it's as bad as you've heard. Other reviewers have deconstructed the film and highlighted its many flaws so I won't retread the same ground. But perhaps I can add this: More than any of The Last Jedi's structural flaws - e.g., narrative and character dissonance - to me the most heartbreaking aspect of the film is its underlying cynicism, both in its worldview and its message.

It tells us there is no such thing as good and evil (it's all just shades of grey) and that those who seek moral clarity are on the wrong side of history.

It tells us that "hero worship" is wrong and should be avoided because our heroes (like Luke Skywalker and Han Solo before him) will inevitably fail and let us down.

It tells us that the past needs to be 'killed' because it's useless, serving no purpose other than as a lesson of what not to do.

It tells us that anyone can achieve greatness, not through hard work, effort and sacrifice but through rejecting one's culture, traditions, institutions, and heritage.

It tells us that laying down one's life for another is wrong because that's tantamount to hate and killing who and what one loves.

It tells us that we can learn absolutely nothing about our identity from our parents, even though our parents conceived, nurtured and brought us into the world. I can't think of a message more antithetical to "Star Wars" - the Star Wars George Lucas created all those years ago (post-Kennedy, post-Vietnam, post-Watergate) than that.

And it just breaks my heart.

There are spoilers in this review.

TLJ was the single biggest motion picture letdown of my life. Disney should have released this parody on April 1st. There are over 82,000 signatures on a change.org petition to remove TLJ from Star Wars canon as of 1/6/18. Disney won't do that, but that there is a petition at all conveys that something is wrong here. And something is. Aside from being a bad movie, TLJ refutes the values of Star Wars. Disney pretends complaints show how sophisticated TLJ is. Those dumb fans, they don't 'get it'. But last I checked, thin characterization, using characters simply as vehicles for action, inconsistency within a trilogy, and thinking ships need fuel in space to keep moving, were not signs of sophistication. The discrepancy with pro reviews may be explained by the fact that pros' publications receive Disney advertising dollars. I give TLJ a 1 for the actors. They are not to blame. But the writing is ruinous to the entire franchise.


First, too much CGI, visually messy scenes. The movie had no idea what to do with Finn. The casino planet scene was filler. And how is it possible, after destroying Starkiller Base, that massive weapon, that the First Order seconds later has all but vanquished the Resistance? There's no gap between VII and VIII. (There was a gap of 3 years between ANH and The Empire Strikes Back.) So why is the First Order in such top form after such a huge defeat at the hands of the Resistance (now inexplicably called the Rebellion). It's like the Resistance's accomplishments of the last movie accomplished nothing at all. By the way, I'm not a bot. And I'm also not alt right or a Trump supporter. I'm white, married to a brown woman of African descent (she was not born in the USA and her first language is not English). We have a young daughter who loves BB8, R2D2, Rey, and light sabers. But that's based on TFA. We wouldn't allow her to watch TLJ any more than we'd let her watch Sesame Street themed porn.


The biggest problems with TLJ were Luke's characterization, the lack of characterization of Rey, and the anti-Star Wars theme which rendered this not Star Wars, but Mirror Universe Star Wars, or Bizarro Star Wars.


Regarding Rey, if you think her TFA "vision" had meaning, or there was any rhyme or reason to Maz Kanata saying to Rey, "Now it calls out to you" (referring to Darth Vader's and Luke's light saber) you will be disappointed. IT IS ALL DROPPED. The identity of Rey's parents might have helped explain why she's so great at everything, but this was squandered. This is not a sequel, it is not act 2, it has almost nothing to do with TFA. Ep 2 continued Ep 1; 5 continued 4; but Ep 8 spits on Ep 7. The idea that Rey could beat Luke (trained by two Jedi masters) in a fight is ludicrous to the Nth degree, especially when you consider how much training Luke (not to mention Anakin) required. Luke lost his hand to Vader because, while he trained under Yoda, he left too early. He paid a price. Rey pays no price. She's perfect without education beyond a two minute meditation session. A protagonist so strong is not credible, and is boring because nothing can threaten her, thus no suspense. Johnson knows this; it's why the last act shifts and all but abandons Rey; there is no peril for Rey now that she's superwoman. He's left JJ with nothing for Ep. IX. As for Luke, this was anti-Luke. Luke was aware Vader had killed millions, yet in Return of the Jedi, refused to kill him. So Luke's instinct to kill Ben in TLJ wasn't in keeping with Luke's character. And would Luke abandon his cause, and his SISTER, for decades, to hide out? No. But if so, why did he leave a clue to his whereabouts for people to follow? He was searching for the first jedi temple why? No reason at all. Rian Johnson wasn't consistent with the original films or Force Awakens. TLJ is hermetically sealed off from and doesn't fit with the saga. It takes place in a separate universe. The statements throughout TLJ that heroism and sacrifice are not positive values, that there is no difference between good and bad, are anti-Star Wars. They also deny TFA, not to mention the intense sacrifices of Rogue One that made everyone's lives in TLJ possible. Bottom line. TLJ is creepy and nihilistic.

Being pro-women is great. But Poe sexist, when Mon Mothma led the Rebels for 4 movies and then Leia led them, is absurd. Making every man bumbling, evil, or arrogant is hard to miss. You don't have to tear men down in order to build women up. That is just what feminists are always publicly claiming they are NOT about. Finally, the dialogue has no personality. In TFA when Finn helps Rey on the Falcon just before Han shows up - has more personality than in all of TLJ. I just bought Thrawn book 1 for an alternative post-Episode VI saga that makes sense. Disney has the legal right to make canon but that's an empty right when there is no spirit behind it. I'll decide what I consider canon.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. If you can classify yourself being between a hardcore Star Wars fan and just somebody looking for a couple of hours of entertainment with a free cinema ticket, you should steer clear of this movie. I will not bore you with painful details that have ruined my expectations. PLOT

The script is in a total disarray. You will see things that make 0 sense and you will struggle to find connecting links between events because of too many plot holes. Bombs "dropping" on space, First Order ships have no energy shields (really...?), Leia getting blown up -survives, drags off to outer space -freezes, comes back to life and flies back in THROUGH the energy shield? You will witness characters getting killed such funny and stupid deaths to a point that you'll almost be hearing the Benny Hill soundtrack (Snoke, Phasma?). Also, the majority of one-liners and humorous moments are so cringe-worthy, I am amazed that the people who edited this actually approved it.

VISUALS AND SOUND

Effects are probably the only redeeming thing of the movie but also probably the least important. It has a few very well directed scenes and iconic photography, especially with Luke facing the First Order walkers on the salty-surfaced planet. The beloved Star Wars music is sometimes used a bit out of place though.

SCRIPT - TIME AND PACING

This movie is long. And not in an enjoyable way; the first hour, I thought even if I hadn't seen it, I wouldn't have missed a whole lot. Towards the end, I was begging for the movie to wrap stuff up and end because I'd gotten tired of the endless cringe-worthy moments which seem to be increasing in frequency. The pacing of the movie is absolutely horrendous; some storylines take a few hours, others weeks. Some are unclear how much they take(?). This creates a lot of "WTF" moments in the audiences' minds as to "how did this happen?". Ray seems like she's been training with Luke for weeks but the events with the Resistance look like they last hours/a few days.

SCRIPT - "INNOVATIONS" AND CHARACTERS

In Force Awakens, we had a lot of new characters introduced, but The Last Jedi, viciously floors literally all of them and the ones that already were there. It introduces more characters who are completely and utterly useless, uninteresting and very flat (I'm looking at you Rose!). Ray's backstory seems destroyed, she's basically a completely uninteresting daughter of scum who sold her off for money. Snoke, one of the most intriguing villains we'll never know what did he do or where did he come from; at least not in a meaningful way. OVERALL
This is a very bad movie. Although the visuals and sound effects are stunning, the movie is a soulless husk. Characters are uninteresting and even look bored, plotlines diverge to paths unknown for too long for no reason, and then drag on some more. Plot holes ruin the continuity of the movie and make the audience wonder "so what happened now?". Sense of humour is appalling and completely out of place.

Yeah it's just disneyfied star wars... it goes from serious to humor in an instant the whole subplot with Fin and Rose is pointless and if it was removed nothing would change. J.J Abrams hit a home run and Johnson forgot to run

My disappointment is not based on any "betrayal" of what Star Wars is or is "supposed to be"; any real story teller and artist ought to be able to explore their imagination and give a new interpretation or spin on things. My disappointment is in the fact that this film is quite simply a poorly made film. It lacks almost any sense of narrative integrity- cause and effect relationships are overlooked in favor of action sequences, that while visually beautiful, have absolutely no sense of gravitas. Basic concepts such as the connection of motivation and action have no place in this film. In the end it feels like only so much fluff and dazzle. I can accept one, two or even three jumps in logic or plot holes, but this film takes it to a new level. The narrative collapses repeatedly. To find myself not caring at all about what happens to characters that I have loved since childhood only underlines the truly monumental lack of care and haphazard way this film was made. I cannot imagine a great film maker such as Spielberg or even Peter Jackson making something as poorly constructed as The Last Jedi. I am sad to say I won't be watching another film directed by Johnson. I am baffled by the critics who have praised his work- and can only think that they only hold this film to the standards that they would hold a commercial or a shoddily written Saturday morning cartoon. To me the worst Star Wars film ever made and enough to evaporate any interest in following the franchise any further. It feels like a great loss- but it's Disney's right to do whatever they want. I just don't have to follow. Expand

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This movie marks the end of the good old Star Wars quality movies. This movie has ruined Luke Skywalkers character, made the Imperial faction’s officers into jokes and comical reliefs, there is no consistency in the movie when it comes to morale (OK for the rebel vice admiral to suicide attack, but not when Finn wants to … it’s OK to kill and eat fish, but not OK to eat flying penguins .. and so on), this movie is so political correctly loaded that one wants to throw up (the rich 1% are cruel to animals, use child slaves, sell weapons to all sides and want to have war … bla bla bla) and like 33% of this movie is about a pointless side mission that has no meaning in the overall plot, with two characters who have no role in the overall plot (Finn and Rose). On top of all this, one could write a book about how Star Wars 8 breaks (or violates) tons of Star Wars canon and continuity. Overall: Disney has killed Star Wars as we knew it, and a new money grinding machine monster is born :-( Expand

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. TLJ was a retelling of ESB and RotJ, how are you defending this movie. Some of the acts are straight copies of these movies, Crait = Hoth and Snoke Throne room exact copy of Emperor even some of the dialog straight copy. Vader killed the Emperor, and vader wannabe Kylo kills Snoke. Are you seeing the trolling yet. The main act of ESB is about the falcon not being able to go light speed to get away from the Empire's fleet, TLJ main act is about the good guys not able to get away from the Empire by going light speed. This movie also had Dagobah with yoda and the jedi leaving while not being fully trained in the force just like Luke in ESB.
TLJ even has Bespin in it. Remember ESB has the heroes trying to find the help of a shady/scoundrel character who may or may not help them and ends up betraying them to the Empire. DJ = Lando.
The audience needs to take your Star Wars beer googles off and realize TLJ is a straight copy of ESB and RotJ with Act 1 Hoth being moved to Act 5. They even go as far to troll the fan boys by "It's Salt" to point out its not snow and it's your fan boy tears at the end of this parody.

It was nothing more then a SWJ propaganda movie. Every male in this movie was made to look like an idiot and needed a strong women character to tell them what to do. This movie contradicts itself "you must kill the past" nonsense. If you must kill the past then why is everything about this movie a straight copy of the OT? Both stories so far are copies, the ships are copies, it has vader/anakin = Kylo Ren, it has emperor = Snoke, it has Luke = Rey, both from a desert planet and come from nothing.

The hardcore SW fans need to realize Rian and Kathleen trolled you and made the first 3 movies pointless. The 1000 year prophecy of bringing balance to the force last maybe 30 years and The Empire vs Rebel face-off was meaningless and only to repeat itself 30 years later with a direct retelling.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. So, writing my first... anything really. Before I place my own thoughts into type, I would comment on what I have been reading of others. When I read comments by those who dislike the film, they write just that. They reveiw and comment on the film shown uupon the screen.
Those who like the film? They talk about everything else and every other movie of the franchise instead of the flim which had been upon the screen.
The "Last Jedi" is, in effect, Darth Nihilus as if such a character could be a movie (Or anything, really given the nature of what Darth Nihilus is)
The 'Last Jedi' is such a complete 'Anti' film that critics can seemigly do nothing BUT compare it to EVERYthing else in Star Wars because... there simply is NO movie (Effectivly) on the screen too review. This film truly has nothing to offer in and of itself that one could class as a 'Movie'. It has no plot. At least, nothing over arching that could be considered as a plot.
It has no real dialouge. Characters seeminly 'One liner' words at each other in sentences form, meaning passes... but nothing is actually meaningfully or coherantly discussed between characters.
The characters? They effectivly do nothing. They effectivly acheive nothing.
At the beginning of the film the Resistance is fleeing from the First Order. At the end of the Film the Resistance is fleeing from the First Order.
At the beginning of the film Kylo Ren is a force of darkness. At the end of the film Kylo Ren is a force of darkness.
Characters that are introduced during this movie... are no longer there when the movie ends.
And so the list of 'Anti' film goes on.
The makers of the last three films have succeeded in acheiveing something within myself that I truly never thought I would see. That I no longer care what happens to or with the franchise. A better title for the film would have been simply;
"Star Wars, meh."
