This is the second movie of the newest trilogy! The movie follows The Force Awakens in the trilogy and continues the story of Rey, and the Resistance against the First Empire Kylo Ren and Snoke.
First off this will have no spoilers... I am not going to spoil a movie on its release night!
The movie itself was amazing, I felt like it could have even been longer! The run time is around 2 hours and 33 minutes.
I have seen some reviews hate on the movie for pacing and story. While not getting into any details is my goal here, the pacing was great. I felt like the story was easy to follow, provided us with detail of what we needed to know and really had us hooked and enjoying the ride. I feel like most of not all Star Wars films are really all over the place with their pacing, simply because they have so much to tell in each film they have to be. You go from one set of characters to the next and that may be hard to follow, I thought it was great!
The comedy, films today seem to think comedy is where it’s at. While Star Wars The Last Jedi wasn’t trying as hard as Thor Ragnarok to be funny, the film had its moments! I enjoy a bit of comedy, especially in movies with such emotion as these films have.
The action was perfect as well. The fight scenes, space battles all of it was great! Can’t wait to hear the complaints about to much CGI though.. guess people want real space battles!
Character development of course is going to be an issue with many, but remember folks this is a trilogy so character development can take some time.
Over all the movie was great! A fun adventure and epic! I cannot wait for episode 9 IX and also what Rian Johnson has in store for us in the next trilogy!
The score for this film is 9/10!
