In Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks new mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past.
The Last Jedi... The First Purchase
I've watched and enjoyed all the Star Wars films and, yes, even the prequels were fun. The original trilogy is excellent and always watchable, but this was the first Star Wars film I felt I had to own. Thematically rich, embracing and subverting expectations and doing something unconventional with the role of the 'middle' movie in a trilogy, I think this film is excellent. Well rounded portrayals, exciting twists and a sense of fun again. Looking forward to the next one!
Crap crap crap

Brilliant! Just brilliant! 👏 great Star Wars movie - grand virtual spectacle.
Not perfect but enjoyed it
It’s not perfect but I like that it tried to do something different instead of the same boring stuff like in the Force Awakens. The cinematography is beautiful.
Cruel and disappointing
We were given back Luke Skywalker only to have him snatched away. The anticipation was so great, and the revelation so cruel. Bad writing, bad execution. The actors all did great, John Williams excellent, but the story is just so bad.
The characters look familiar but they now speak like teenagers with contrived humour that will sound appallingly dated in about...hmmm...six months. The first Disney film was pretty good, their second was better, but this...this is a bitter mess of a movie. There is almost nothing original about it, and sadly the approximations of the originals are poorly written and cartoonish, so the enemy offers about as as much threat as a cloudy sky, and all the compelling intrigue of Postman Pat.
Disney have lost their way with this one…….
By Old Skool Trekkie
Unless the underlying message is plus ca change, this film is a lemon. A total lack of original plot and too much Deus Ex Machina make this film very poor indeed.
Come on Disney, you've been doing so well with the Marvel films, lets have a better ending to the saga in the ninth film and bring back Lando!!!!

Ignore the haters. This is a bold film that is genuinely thrilling in places.
It poses some interesting questions about Pacifism too.
The Casino planet storyline is disappointing, but all the scenes between Kylo Ren and Rey are fantastic and the ending is very poetic.
A wasted opportunity
By James Chelmsford
Sadly, TLJ disappointed me. I was hoping for a continuation of the story arc set up in The Force Awakens but instead this feels like a standalone film which dumps many set ups from TFA. It has a very modern take on language and plot i.e. current English language phrases and swearing, and a character with instant superpowers. It feels like an expensive blockbuster so has lost the sense of mystery and wonder.
Whilst watching TLJ I got very excited thinking there was going to be the mother of all cliffhangers. Instead it ends on some almost totally random shot of a child character. Sorry, this is not my kind of thing.
I’ll stick to the original trilogy 😊
