The ninth instalment in the Star Wars series serves as both a conclusion and a start. It provides answers to several issues that fans have been asking repeatedly since since Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015), the first film in the new trilogy, was released.

It reveals some riddles while also giving rise to others. For some people, like this reviewer, it can seem like the finest Star Wars movie ever made, while for others it might be an overall disappointing experience.


It gained emotional weight with the demise of Carrie Fisher, who played the legendary Princess Leia in The Last Jedi (2017) and the death of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) in the movie.

When seen in that light and in comparison to The Force Awakens,In contrast to the way Harrison Ford’s (Han Solo) death genuinely hit the audience in the stomach, this movie feels carefree. It lacks the current trilogy’s first two movies’ dramatic grace and emotional centre.

Characters from previous movies and characters who have passed away frequently reappear without significantly advancing the storyline.

Adam Driver and Daisy Ridley aren’t given many opportunities to show off their acting prowess.

The hastily written screenplay also resulted in some shoddy editing. Kylo Ren just suddenly and conveniently appears wherever he is needed.

A beloved character is presumed to be dead before being unceremoniously discovered to still be alive.

JJ Abrams, the director, appears to have been eager to finish the project. Considering how skilled the This one feels like a hurriedly thrown together product in compared to the elegance of the prior two movies.
