    Solid but divisive movie, I thoroughly enjoyed it - you may not
    Review of Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi Movie by Vashetti, Dec 22, 2017.
    If TFA was a safe almost-retread of A New Hope, you would think you'd be safe in assuming that this movie would be a retread of The Empire Strikes Back.

    For better or worse (depending on what you think of the movie), The Last Jedi is not a retread of any of the previous movies, and it's easily the 'riskiest' Star Wars movie to date.

    The movie has three storylines:

    Rey/Luke
    Finn/Rose/Poe/Leia
    Kylo/Snoke

    For most of the movie these plotlnes are separate, with some mingling in between before they naturally all collide at the end.

    At this point, if you haven't seen the movie, you've probably heard that it's dividing audiences. I think it's a fair assessment to say this is a very 'marmite' Star Wars. You're either going to love what they've done, or you're going to hate it.

    I don't want to spoil anything, so I'll wrap up in saying all the cast are solid, the music is great, special effects are top-notch. It's the story that's causing so much debate.

    Go see it.

    Pros

    • It's a 2 & and a 1/2 hour movie - if you're enjoying it, you'll be glad for the length
    • The cast are fantastic, Mark Hamill is the best he's ever been as Luke, as is Carrie Fisher as Leia (RIP)
    • Visuals, soundtrack, etc. is top-notch as to be expected

    Cons

    • It's a 2 & a 1/2 hour movie - if you're hating it, you'll be shifting in your seat throughout
    • Leaves many things set-up in The Force Awakens still unanswered

    Verdict
