Star Wars: The Last Jedi Reviews
Visually, production and cinematography is one of the best of all star wars movies;
Great battle and fight scenes;
Storytelling is inconsistent with gaping wide plotholes and many throw away plots;
Characters non-compelling and bland;
Old characters potentials are wasted;
Gotcha moments that makes no sense or dont fit mood of the movie;
Badly placed humour without any point just for the sake of it;
Doesnt ties up almost nothing from the force awaken;
Original Lore is thrown away the window dozens of times;
I watch it and even not being a die hard star wars fan I know the lore and watched all the movies. And upon seeing the movies I felt nothing much just cheap enjoyment and after reflecting upon it the flaws are too big to be ignored not as Star wars itself but also as a movie and storytelling as someone who loves RPGs and books. The inconsistencies and double downing on bad backgrounds for everyones is off the chart.
Someone who doesnt know star wars will enjoy the movie because generally is like watching a good sci-fi movies with explosions and cool fights and funny scenes. You can even watch it by not seeing Force awakens and makes just as much sense as if it was standalone.
TLDR: Nice, cool, transformers movie. Too many inconsistencies and flaws to be anything other than cheap entertaiment. Thinking makes your head hurt so just ignore the flaws and its the best movie 2017.
Half a star because this was half a movie.
The last Jedi dared in many ways, go where other Star Wars didn't. And that pissed many off.
The intelligent use of lore, bold decisions with the characters and parallels with the current political climate make this entry to franchise one of the most relevant since its creation.
The characters are vivid and complex, with the odd exception of phasma. The focus on the new generation is divisive but ultimately makes sense. The plot turns help break the monotony of a predictable outcome and invigorate the main characters in new directions.
Ultimately this fresh take on a cultural colossus will always stand out, even facing the hatred.
For all of that it looked sort of cool and by the end of the film I sort of cared what happened to the characters. Not so much that I will be eager for the next installment.
As someone who love the original Episodes 4-6. Was disappointed in episodes 1-3. Now I lost complete faith in this 7-9 series. Disney and the people they hired destroyed this franchise. Do not bother watching this movie.
