Goofs

During the slow-mo chase, the rebel lost 2 or 3 support ships that ran out of fuel. It is established that the fuel for sub-light engines vs light-speed engines is separate. So why didn't they send all the support ships at the star destroyers at light speed to destroy them. The last person on board was going to die anyhow. Or why didn't the last capital ship head to the same planet to cover the shuttle retreat, there by lending cover to the shuttles? See more »

Total Disappointment.
14 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

I had high hopes for the one. TFA worked well as a soft reboot and Rogue One wasn't bad either, so this one should have been fantastic. Instead, we got a lazy, incompetent mess. Basically, every interesting bit in The Force Awakens, which was otherwise a rehash of Episode 4, was scrapped or messed up. Rey's parents, the Knights of Ren, Kylo's obsession with Vader, Snoke's origin, it's all either unanswered or resolved in a completely underwhelming fashion.

The plot is 100% filler. The not-Empire has destroyed the Republic (again) before TLJ even starts and nothing really changes afterward.

The characters are just bad. Luke has been completely gutted and turned into a passive, cowardly sociopath. Rey continues to be a Mary Sue, but it's dialed up to eleven this time. The Force ghost of a beloved character shows up to basically tell Luke she doesn't need him and he can't teach her anything. I wish I was making this up. it's honestly ridiculous. Coincidentally, that character is also turned into a cackling lunatic. Finn and the new character Rose have a pointless romance and a filler plotline. Finn and Poe generally don't have any real development at all, which is a disappointment since they were among the more likable characters in the previous movie. Only Kylo Ren has some serious decent character development as his fall to the Dark side is explored.

The special effects look good overall, aside from the above-mentioned ghost, but flashy effects don't make up for the horrible story and characters.

Another thing that struck me was the humor in this episode. It's off the charts and completely out of place. Every other line is a quip, and even serious characters like the old, depressed Luke act like they're in a Marvel movie. It's extremely jarring.

Overall, this is probably my least favorite Star Wars movie. In fact, I don't think it's a Star Wars movie at all.
