The force is WEAK with this movie - Star Wars: The Last Jedi review by William London

Spoiler Alert
30/04/2018

Dear George,

I would like to apologize for ever saying that Episode I was bad. I'm so sorry. You had a clear direction in your mind for Star Wars. And Episode I had an original story that made sense.

Episode I was SO MUCH BETTER than this Last Jedi turd. This patchwork of a movie is made of countless scenes taken from your original trilogy that it would be classified as a rip-off had it not been made by the new owner of your Intellectual Property.

Last Jedi is more an action movie like a recent Mission Impossible. I giggled a few times while watching it. But there was no suspense. Last Jedi is probably comparable to Beverly Hills cop IV. People watched it without expectations and that movie faded very quickly from memory. Last Jedi is as interesting as a mid-season episode of The Walking Dead.

People who made this movie had no idea of the material they were working on. Luke was THE hero in Star Wars and he is portrayed in such a terrible way. I feel cheated by his presence. Mark Hamill should not have accepted to play Luke again with such a script, but Disney probably made him a cheque he could not refuse. And the Science-Fiction in this movie is just Fantasy.

I don't care about these made-up characters that make no sense. Because, come-on, how long did it take Luke (or Anakin) to learn how to use telekinesis a move a lightsaber stuck in the snow on Hoth (spoiler: Rey make one fly across the room on her first try)? Or how long did it take Luke to move just one rock on Dagobah (spoiler: Rey moves several hundred/tons on her first try). And how long did it take Luke to fight with a lightsaber (magically, Rey was born as a master). I could go on...

I won't be watching the Solo movie or Episode XIV. And I just don't care about a meagre cliffhanger at the end of Last Jedi, especially after watching how they resolved the meagre cliffhanger at the end of The Force Awakens.

This movie was empty.

Mickey is just milking, and I'm not interested.

Star Wars: RIP.

Wrong - Star Wars: The Last Jedi review by DH

Spoiler Alert
29/05/2018

Couldn't disagree with the official critic more, who obviously has no understanding of the Star Wars legacy. Worse than that though, neither did the writer/director. Luke Skywalker was almost unrecognisable as a character, and I don't mean physically - although they might as well have used a different actor and saved themselves a few quid, it wouldn't have been any worse. Sure he had to be allowed to age and also evolve as we all do, but this bloke had nothing in common with the Luke Skywalker of the original films.

After that, nothing else about the film seems to matter much. C3P0 and R2D2 continued to be relegated to token cameo roles, may as well not have bothered. Of the new actors, Finn, Rey and Kylo Ren all had less convincing performances than in the last film. While I was really looking forward to this film. I am dreading the next one.

Big Disappointment - Star Wars: The Last Jedi review by MA

Spoiler Alert
14/04/2018

I genuinely dislike this movie & cannot understand why it has been given so many good reviews (eg: non-sensical plot, no continuity with the previous films, ridiculous story elements, poor jokes etc).

Critic review

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (aka Star Wars: Episode VIII) review by Mark McPherson - Cinema Paradiso

Writer/director Rian Johnson had recently announced that he would be helming an entirely new Star Wars trilogy all his own. After viewing The Last Jedi, it’s easy to see why. His entry into the latest Star Wars trilogy, both written and directed by Johnson, is bursting with ideas, arcs, mythos, and characters that are enough to fill at least two movies. For audiences that feel cheated with bridge movies, you need not worry about this Star Wars picture. Johnson doesn’t waste our time, and he doesn’t leave plot arcs unresolved. In a cinema landscape where most films like to stew and brew their franchises for the long haul, here is a film that refreshingly asks of itself “Why not finish these arcs now?” For such a bold take, Johnson’s film gives the most bang for the buck. Almost too much.

Having firmly established the new crop of heroes and villain for the continuing saga, The Last Jedi expands on the familiar characters with a depth that was lacking from The Force Awakens. The Resistance fighter Poe (Oscar Isaac) felt like a bookend afterthought of a hero, but now he takes center stage as a leader. He leads fleets into battle against the evil armada of The First Order but has more grit than smarts, ordering his men into suicide mission under the guise of “we can win this now.” Finn (John Boyega) still has some First Order knowledge to save the day as a turncoat but has to learn better how to work with others. Elsewhere, Rey (Daisy Ridley) seeks the guidance on the ways of the force from the legendary Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), but she may not be ready for what she discovers. And the evil Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) still has some demons to face and a past to confront.

To what may be the dismay of many Star Wars fans, Johnson has decided to rewrite a bit of the rulebook to conceive his own tale of doubt and letting go of the past. For conceiving such a story, it's almost guaranteed that this film will be disappointing with its revelations, showdowns and character deaths for all the hype surrounding them. If you can set your fan theories aside, however, there’s a compelling story present that fits well with film’s theme of looking more towards the future than referencing the past. This makes Rey’s shocking discovery of who her parents were more meaningful than logistical. It also makes Luke’s massive change in attitude towards the Force seem more crucial to the plot than hitting all the expected Skywalker-isms.

The biggest problem with the picture is that Johnson has so much to deliver that he often rushes the audience along, making the 150+ minutes just zoom by. As a result, many of the more meaningful and emotional scenes don’t stew enough to pack a big punch. The biggest detriment is to Rey’s teachings of the Force, more hitting the expected beats of confronting the dark side than being a genuine surprise. It really sticks out like a sore thumb when such a dramatic and emotional journey must share screen time with Finn’s wild casino planet adventure. While the showdowns are pleasing for the third act, many of them come so fast that there’s rarely a moment to feel the drive behind them. This is especially true with Finn's big battle with Captain Phasma. Considering Phasma doesn’t appear in the film until the showdown, their feud doesn’t feel as cohesive in this picture as it did in The Force Awakens. But if you really wanted to see the two duke it out in a flaming hangar bay, there you go.

The Last Jedi may seem overly divergent for tossing so much in the air and playing it loose with the Star Wars mythos, but it’s a very welcome change to a franchise in need of some cage-rattling. At its core, however, are all the familiar Star Wars traits that make this series so grand. There’s a somberness to the film’s darker tone, but a lot of humor brings levity in the form of Poe’s prank call transmission to the enemy, Luke’s perfectly timed commentary on Rey’s life and those cute little Porg creatures. There’s real grit to this film’s large-scale battles, spanning from the high-stakes bombing of a First Order warship to a final-stand defense on a planet of salt. More importantly, the film is a constant surprise of who will die next, who will shoot first, and who will make a sacrifice. If you don’t like bridge films that leave you hanging, rest assured, Johnson won’t leave you exiting the theater with the groan of a child who has to go to bed before finishing a bedtime story. Johnson lets us stay up to hear that wicked fourth act with the most impressive display of Luke’s heroic abilities.
