I just went to The Rise of Skywalker and, well, I disagree. Innocent
J.J. Abrams is spineless. He caved in to all the whiny haters of Last Jedi and basically obsoleted that film by backtracking on all the daring decisions Rian Johnson had made.
They come up with a villain that comes out of nowhere, all interesting characters are sidelined, everything about the previous movie gets retconned (including Rey not being related to someone important Angry ), every time a character does something interesting they immediately kill him/her off, there’s an insane amount of asspulls in making people miraculously survive some events, and the pacing for the second half of the film is so high that it should have been at least half an hour longer just to add a bit more gravitas to the events. That and the giant space battle is a convoluted mess with no sense of direction whatsoever…
That said, is it a bad film? No, not by any means. It’s still fun, there’s quite a few laughs and epic moments, and some of the cast are having a blast hamming it up (you just gotta love Richard E. Grant here, as well as Ian McDiarmid who’s as over the top as ever).
But the film just completely rubs me the wrong way after I loved The Last Jedi to bits…
Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker - 3/5
I have to agree completely. I really didn’t like this movie at all. Makes the Last Jedi look like a master piece of film making.
Lowest rated Star Wars movie of all time. Lower than Phantom Menace which is quite an achievement.
I enjoy playing adventure games on handheld systems- PS VITA, Nintendo DS and ipad mini.
It’s time to forget about Star Wars and start looking forward to Denis Villeneuve’s Upcoming Dune. First movie is set to be released this november. This movie series could very well become the SciFi equivalent of The Lord of the Rings
