Star Wars: The Last Jedi Reviews


Johnson, whose previous writing/directing credits include smart indies like Brick and Looper, makes the transition to Blockbusterland with the ease of a pro. It’s hardly surprising that he’s been entrusted with creating a new trilogy in the Star Wars universe. The galaxy is safe on his watch.

Engaging, advancing and thrilling, The Last Jedi doesn't disappoint on major levels and we can thank the makers for not messing it up and for being true to the force. As Master Yoda would've said, "Watch One May. Enjoy One Must."

Director Rian Johnson has made the best, most spiritual Star Wars movie since the Empire Strikes Back. It is one of the finest blockbusters of the year.

To kill goodness takes more than the might of a dazzling lightsabre or firing walkers. Its indestructibility is asserted in the most surreal and spiritual manner by the Skywalker siblings at crucial junctures of the story.You don't have to be a Star Wars nerd to enjoy its poignant pursuit of virtue.Like a wise green man once said, 'Through the force, things you will see.'

With some absolutely gorgeous moments that will become imprinted in every fan's mind, 'The Last Jedi' is everything a Star Wars film should be, and so much more. Johnson weaves an emotionally rewarding tale while balancing all the essential sci-fi action expected, but manages to give 'The Last Jedi' its own heart and voice.

When we have building up franchises of superheroes; Star Wars stands tall with its head held high roaring its infinite existence since 40 years. A toast to the 8th episode of this magnanimous series and hoping for many more to come. Star Wars fan? You don’t need any push but those who do not watch the short recap videos of all 7 parts available on YouTube and don’t miss this one.

The Last Jedi is definitely not the end of the road for the Jedi warriors. Johnson in fact brings their future creations into the sub-textual discussion that embraces issues of legitimacy and succession. The franchise's future appears to be in safe hands – with the baton having passed down from the old trinity - Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill to a newer and more energised lot. Let the force be with them!


Rian Johnson’s strategy for The Last Jedi was simple: identify everything that’s great about the previous Star Wars films, use those things sparely as Easter eggs and not main plot threads, and craft a brand new storyline that goes in a bold and adventurous direction full of wonder, thrills and discovery. It makes The Last Jedi the most enjoyable blockbuster of the year.



The visuals are bright and colourful, especially the one scene that takes place in a casino and the scenes that lead to the film's final battle. The computer generated images mesh seamlessly into the live action sequences demanding the film to be seen on an IMAX screen.

In this entry at least, the spectacle is fuelled by true narrative ambition. Because these 150 minutes aim to give you a Star Wars experience you never knew you wanted. Once you've experienced what a great story can do in this universe, settling for anything less is not an option. It's all on you to send the new trilogy off in style Abrams.

The Last Jedi is not the greatest Star Wars film but it certainly is a worthy addition to the galactic saga. Recommended!

The Last Jedi is not a film for the faint of heart. But courage, a sense of wonder, a resounding faith in the strength of love, and a healthy dose of hope will take you far.

    Continuing the over arching story of the Star wars saga, the story involves Rey (Ridley) fresh off her fight with Kylo Ren (Driver) travelling to a desolate planet in hopes of finding long lost Jedi Master Luke Skywalker (Hamill) to help the Resistance which is on the run from the diabolic first order, led by supreme leader Snoke (Serskis).

    If you go to the cinema to be entralled, surprised and challenged as the audience, then this film might as well be the one for you. Rian Johnson manages to craft a film, which honours the star wars lore while also being a radical breakaway into new territory. Rey and Kylo Ren are given their due depth in the story with a bold twist on the characters of Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa, both recurring from the original trilogy.

    The film has a distinctive visual style with the colour red being a prominent backdrop throughout. The cinematography and the practical effects seamlessly compliment the CGI effects giving the feel of a space epic. The performances of Daisy Ridley and Mark Hamill make a great Master and pupil chemistry. But the standout performance is given by Adma driver as the conflicted and unstable Kylo Ren who gives the impression of a pained villain with conviction. The film is easily the best star wars film since empire strikes back.

    This movie was way to inappropriate to show for my 10 year old daughter. I had to take her out of the theater because of the sexual connections from the Asian lady and The black guy, also the people in the Theater were being way to rude! they were constatantly telling me to turn off my phone when I wanted to take a picture to show my girl friends that I was watching star wars, Finally I can say don't show this to your daughter and don't waste your money to be called mean things by the viewers in the audience.
