    There's so much to like in this film. There's also so much to dislike, however.

    Likes:
    - Holy crap the visuals. Great. The fight sequences are pretty fantastic. Some of the climactic scenes spoiler are great.
    - It felt unique. Johnson's extensive use of close-ups really gave it a unique tone.
    - Over all the story was solid-ish, and there were definitely parts where the opening night audience cheered.

    Dislikes:
    -It's a good 30 minutes too long. As one professional reviewer pointed out, somewhere in there is a fantastic 90 minute Star Wars Movie
    - The subplot spoiler was abysmally bad and insulting. Felt prequel SW bad. Holy crap I couldn't believe how bad it was.
    - By splitting up the characters, the dramatic tension was diluted. But when they get back together in the same place, man, does the film cook.
    - One important moment is never really resolved spoiler
    - The humour was way too over the top and silly. Meta-awareness has always been Han Solo's job, and it just seemed out of place coming from other people.
    -Trying to be cool and modern: Alongside the humour is the weird way language is used. A lot of modern vernacular and body language is used that just feels out of place in Star Wars.
    - The music: John Williams is a living legend, but overall this had nothing new to offer and felt watered down.
    - The tone: It didn't feel like Star Wars in the way I though The Force Awakens PERFECTLY captured the Star Wars tone. It was close, but it was it's own thing. Maybe that's fine. Wasn't for me though.
    -Useless romance that seems incredibly tacked on.

    Overall: I liked the movie, but there's much about it that bugged me. Some parts were FANTASTIC and others were just awful. Hammil was solid. There was very little in the way of character arcs for anyone though. It was all just kind of treading water. The film really had no pathos, ultimately. It just kind IS a Star Wars story. Felt more like Rogue One in the way it emulates Star Wars than just BEING a Star Wars movie. Also, like Rogue One, it felt more like a film about military operation than about a real adventure. Where was the adventure here? Larry Kasdan needs to write the rest of this series. His magic was sorely lacking here.

    I never thought this would come from me, but I need more politics and less war in these new Star Wars movies. I like the pace and the battle scenes, but the whole movie is too much a big hunt and a big escape. There was a intended nosgaltic scene that was awful, the humor screamed '' laugh now '' and was at times too flat and ridiculous. I only think it was tied together with it's predecessor in time, but had too many loose ends. Kylo Ren was better in this than the first movie, but I don't quite understand his ambition for the univers. I had a little hope of a romance that now seems impossible, another romance that I had not seen come and a new one that seems foolish. There is much to like and much to hate in this Star Wars movie. Not better than The Force Awakens or Rogue One. However, still better than the prequel trilogy. 4 months ago

    Fairly disappointed with this one. For such a serious movie, I felt some of the humour was forced and out of place which caused some tonal ambiguity. Finn's become a side character and his pointless arc only existed to give him something to do, while his whole romance story was not obvious at all; his relationship with Rey was much more genuine in the Force Awakens. There were also a lot missed opportunities in terms of what Abrams set up as the questions posed in the Force Awakens were completely disregarded since Rian decided to move it in a different direction. Kylo's development was by far the strongest aspect in this film but everything else felt insignificant. There were also some jaw-dropping moments and a fresh twist in there, but these moments don't really make up for the mediocre writing. It's definitely not a bad film, but it's not great either. 4 months 1 week ago
