Rey develops her newly discovered abilities with the guidance of Luke Skywalker, who is unsettled by the strength of her powers. Meanwhile, the Resistance prepares to do battle with the First Order.
“The Chairman” – After two years of hype and build up, the day has finally arrived. We all get to see the much lauded Star Wars: The Last Jedi. I already hear the questions in the back of the room, “was it great?, did it live up to the hype?” and I can say, with a heavenly choir as accompaniment, YES!!!!!
I will breakdown my review into positives and negatives (yes, there are Negatives):
Rey & Luke – The relationship that falls somewhere between Mr Miyagi and Daniel-son, & Bob Sagat and the kids of Full House. Their interaction is their to illustrate the true power of the force.
Kylo Ren – Probably the best performance is the movie, most of the movie pivotal moment are because of his actions.
Carrie Fisher – Princess Leia had a bigger role than the Force Awakens, showing her true leadership skills in a time of great anxiety.
Porgs – I need a scientist to make this hybrid Puppy-Penguin a reality. So cute!
Finn – Seemed like they wrote a script and said, “Hey guys, Finn isn’t in this much. Let’s force him in”. They all probably had a good chuckle over the pun they just made. No spoilers, tell me if I am wrong here.
Twists – Too many twists, M.Night would be proud!
Poe Dameran – Don’t crucify me, I am but the messenger. I won’t explain why, it might reveal too much.
Overall a positive result, and something to keep all Star Wars fans happy. And if you were wondering, it’s no copy of The Empire Strikes Back.
