Star Wars: The Last Jedi

New generation stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac return alongside Star Wars legends Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher in this sequel to The Force Awakens. Rian Johnson (Looper) writes and directs this episode, allowing us see why Disney have given him an entire new trilogy of Star Wars films, unrelated to these, to craft next.

Rey (Ridley) took her first steps into a larger world in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and will continue her epic journey with Finn (Boyega), Poe (Isaac), and Luke Skywalker (Hamill) in the next chapter of the continuing Star Wars saga.

Although [it] meets a relatively high standard for franchise filmmaking, Johnson’s effort is ultimately a disappointment... the longest and least essential chapter in the series.

An excellent middle chapter bursting with wit, wisdom, emotion, shocks, old-fashioned derring-do, state-of-the-art tech, and stonking set-pieces.

It is a satisfying, at times transporting entertainment. Remarkably, it has visual wit and a human touch, no small achievement for a seemingly indestructible machine that revved up 40 years ago and shows no signs of sputtering out (ever).

Rian Johnson turns this middle part of the current trilogy into an 'Empire Strikes Back' for the next generation.

It's infinitely better than its predecessor, and it sparkles with the Star Wars depth, magic and dust, despite some of its occasionally baffling flaws.

A stunning black, white, and red color pallette, thrilling adventure, appealing new characters, worthy developments for old friends and a cause to root for.

Loaded with action and satisfying in the ways its loyal audience wants it to be ... generally pleasing even as it sometimes strains to find useful and/or interesting things for some of its characters to do.

If The Force Awakens raised a lot of questions, The Last Jedi tackles them head-on, delivering answers that will shock and awe in equal measure. Fun, funny but with emotional heft, this is a mouth-watering set-up for Episode IX and a fitting tribute to Carrie Fisher.

It's action-packed and visually stunning, taking a unique direction in the saga - however lacking the character qualities expected from a film of such standard.

Firstly, The Light Side - I was thoroughly engrossed during the two and a half hour run time, and with more twists and turns than, well, any other Star Wars film to date. It delivers a much more engaging and original storyline than Episode 7 (aka 'Star Wars XL - A New Hope Supersized') and is all the better for it. OK, it did go on a bit, but that I don't...

Must admit I am not a dedicated Star Wars fan so each movie has to give me something to enjoy. I have always found the plots a bit juvenile and the attraction has always been the universe it creates. This film was big on plot but low on what attracts me. I found myself rooting for the bad guys. Finish the resistance off so we can go home! Too long, too...

Despite the lengthy runtime, Episode VIII is an entertaining instalment in the Star Wars saga and is worthy of the acclaim it has been receiving of late. There are no rejigs or recycling of material to progress the story and that allows character arcs to flourish. Above all, it is undeniably stylish and fun.

Nothing makes me happier than a movie in a successful franchise that tries something new, and The Last Jedi is a pure example of this. Even if some of it's effort is at the expense of a few weak characters and lackluster scenes, it's still worth the re-watch purely because of the impact that it had on me as the viewer. Not quite as good as episode 7, but...

NO SPOILERS Film Review: STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI This is the sequel we’ve been waiting for… I’ve been a huge Star Wars fan ever since, a long, long time ago in a cinema far away, I saw the first movie.
