Right, it’s been five days since I saw Star Wars: The Last Jedi and I need to unload my thoughts on it.
Spoiler free review first.
I enjoyed it. But didn’t love it. I felt the storytelling was lazy and rehashed, reliant on knowledge from previous films and references, but not delivered with the same charm as The Force Awakens. The whole saga talks about balance. And that’s what this had. Some really cool moments. But some pointless drivel that made the film longer than it needed to be. Some of the acting was great. Some of it was quite robotic and emotionless. As a sci-fi adventure it’s a decent watch that is great for family viewing. But in context of Star Wars films and how previous stories were delivered, it’s a bit weak and rather confusing. 3/5
