To date, this is easily the most polarizing Star Wars film. I enjoy it, and it does have some great action scenes as well as some surprises. There are some flaws however. The entire sequence on the casino planet of Canto Bight felt like it was from the prequels. Additionally, the character of DJ played by Benicio Del Toro was a lazy and contrived plot convenience, and the character of Rose Tico was kind of annoying (nothing against the actress who plays her though, who unfortunately has been unfairly bullied by overzealous fans).Phaneron
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the second of the current continuity of the Star War main cinematic story and it doesn't disappoint in drama, battle scenes, twists and foreshadowing. The First Order continues to hammer brutally at what's left of the Resistance while Rey attempts to convince a disheartened Luke Skywalker to rejoin the fight. Kylo Ren and Rey, meanwhile, find that there exists some bond between them...one that Supreme Leader of the First Order Snoke intends to exploit. A few new characters are introduced amid the chaos, some major characters perish, and what we're left with is both sides reeling from staggering loses and regrouping as we head into the third film. This movie, while a bit overlong and slow at points, is a strong addition to the Star Wars franchise and, with nods to several prior films given, maintains its own identity and continues to carry on the dread and harrowing action of its most recent predecessors, The Force Awakens and Rogue One. Overall, a good, solid Star Wars movie well worth a look!Erik M.
Question: In Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, Luke's replacement hand looks like a normal human one (though it was mechanical). In this film he has a more obviously robotic hand. Other than to remind today's audiences that he previously lost his hand, was there any point to this change?Gavin Jackson
