The new lead character of this generation of Star Wars movies is really badly thought out. It has 0 defects, 0 hardships to overcome, perfect at everything. In comparison, the original trilogy was about learning how to lose, to improve, to thrive in the face of adversity. This movie was just Rey smashing through everything with ease, with almost no training, being able to go toe to toe with and even beating characters that devoted their entire life, starting from childhood, to fighting. That is bad writing, and keeps nobody glued to their screen, it's like a Superman movie where there is no kryptonite, no enemy kryptionians or any powerful aliens, just Superman versus regular humans.
The movie was great, and Black Panther was way better and more logically presented in this movie compared to his own movie. Which says a lot about how this movie managed individual characters, it knew how and where to put the spotlight in every moment of the movie.
I do not believe that having a magical material falling in one's territory (by luck) makes them a great people. Also, the idea that they were incredibly advanced and allowed colonization to happen to the neighboring nations makes them even less great, makes them kinda bad and complicit. I think it lacked logic, they focused way too much on the looks, not much on the story. Loud music and cgi fights don't compensate for the plot holes. Also the way it was marketed, by being the first marvel hero movie with a lead of color is just weird, considering they had Blade, which was fun as well. It tried to use real life politics for profit.
