Review of Star Wars: The Last Jedi in one word – terrible.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi review in two words – absolutely terrible.
Where do we begin?
Spaceship runs out of fuel in an age of advanced science. We can put a nuclear powered rover on Mars, but spaceships in the future run out of fuel. It would seem if ships could travel light speed, they can have an unlimited fuel source. Unneeded emotional appeal.
Movie felt like a roll playing game with one quest after another.
Music was lame.
Death of evil Sith master who nobody had an emotional attachment to.
Lame death of Luke Skywalker that felt like something from Excalibur (1981 movie).
Two strong female characters who sacrificed herself – token characters to modern day feminism and political correctness.
Strong leading woman character with no training who beats a trained Jedi – token character to modern day feminism.
Various interracial relationships – tokens to modern day political correctness.
Leah flying through space.
Blowing up medical ship – over the top cruelty. The script did not have to say it was a medical ship, that detail was added for emotional appeal.
For some reason Sith master needs an armed detail of guards. No other master to date has needed such guards.
Dialogue was terrible and predictable.
Over the top acting by Luke Skywalker, such as milking an alien creature and drinking the milk.
Rather than following Star Wars lore, the story felt like it tried to appeal to political correctness and feminism.
Most of the white men were portrayed as mean, cruel, emotional, and they had to be brought to heal by strong level headed women.
As this article was written, I am 50 years old and watched the original Star Wars movies dozens of times. Since the series was rebooted and the first episodes came out, the saga has been spiraling towards a crash and burn. That crash and burn finally arrived with Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
