Almost didn't go to see this as I was so horrified how bad the previous film was. But this wasn't bad at all. Plenty of nods to the original trilogy, spectacular space battles and epic back drops. If I had one criticism it would be the plot is slightly week in a few places. Won't say where as don't want to spoil it. But it does seem they had to put some shaky science in to bolster why they were having to do what they did in the finale. But hey, overall pretty awesome.
We t to the cinema to watch this film and left feeling disjointed and crushed. Gave it another try when it came out online. Switched it of after 15 minutes. Just a question? Have the writers, director and producers of this film ever seen an original Star Wars film? Have they read any of the book? Ok maybe something a tad easier, do you know that space is a vacuum? So in the opening scenes we have one fighter taking on battleships point defence by itself. Bullshit!
Then we have big cumbersome B-17 bombers that drop gravity fed bombs in space??????? Huh! Yes the developers of the Y-wing that was specifically tasked to bomb large star ships that was later replaced by the B-wing. Fast get in and get out intact star fighters. But no! What we really need is big cumbersome, slow, sitting targets that even a drunk stormtrooper could hit on a bad day. And blows itself up when it drops its gravity fed bombs (in the vacuum of space) that it has to be over the top off when it bombs. Wouldn't that also work from the side or below? ï¿ 1/2 1/2" This is just the opening stupidity and it just goes down hill from there. Really one of the worst films ever made. Don't treat your audience like fools!
