Star Wars: The Last Jedi, A Review


Star Wars: The Last Jedi was the latest installment in the Star Wars franchise. This film is not a traditional installment of the series we all know and love, and has added a lot of new aspects that people did not originally think possible for the series–making it one of the reasons why long term fans and critics are currently split on its quality.

One of the things that makes The Last Jedi so different is it doesn’t have the traditional Star Wars lightsaber fights scene–those who have seen the movie know what I am talking about.

Concerning the plot, it takes off right where the last movie, The Force Awakens, ended. Throughout the film, all main characters get some great scenes and show thorough character development–especially Rey, the hero of the new trilogy, who has some standout scenes with Luke from the original Star Wars films, bringing the various storylines together in a cohesive manner.

However, one main complaint about The Last Jedi is the movie’s attempt at humor. Not all the cracks were a total flop, and most of the jokes would make anyone laugh. Unfortunately, one can’t help but think that the quality of the movie overall would have been improved without such attempts.

With all its faults, The Last Jedi was certainly something no one was really expecting, making it one of the best Star Wars movies yet.
