Movie goers around the world lined up again for Disney’s second attempt on what they think a Star Wars movie should be. As a die hard Star Wars fan myself, it pains me to say that this movie just isn’t that good, in fact I thought it was a complete and utter mess. Rian Johnson takes everything we know and love about Star Wars and throws it out the window much like how Luke throws the lightsaber Rey hands him over his shoulder at the beginning of the film. All of the mysteries that were built up in JJ Abram’s The Force Awakens are carefully deconstructed and the audience is basically told, screw you, none of those things matter, this isn’t your father’s Star Wars movie so get over it. It’s a ballsy move and I’m all about change and shaking things up but that’s not necessarily where my disappointment with the film lies. It seems like Rian Johnson was so preoccupied with disturbing the force that he forgot to try and make a good movie. What made the original Star Wars movies so great were the really memorable characters who had heart and who we really cared about. I felt absolutely no connection with any of the characters in The Last Jedi. I kept asking myself over and over again, why do I care about these people, it’s three days later and I still haven’t been able to come up with a decent answer. Also, the main plot is laughable, and the second act of the movie takes us to a casino planet where we get introduced to the real antagonists in the universe all along, rich aliens. It’s not all bad though, the film does have two of the best looking lighsaber duels in the entire saga and seeing Mark Hamill reprise his role as Luke Skywalker is a sight to behold even though he does kind of ruin the character at the end. Pretty looking lightsaber duels aside, none of it was enough to keep even this fan boy interested in going to a second viewing. My honest opinion, save your money and stream it online in a couple of months, Disney doesn’t deserve your hard earned dollars for this one.
