The movie ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ came to theaters on December 15, 2017 and earned $450 million in the box office. It starred Daisy Ridley(Rey), Adam Driver(Kylo Ren) and it also brought back many loved people, such as Mark Hamill(Luke Skywalker) and Carrie Fisher(Leia Organa).

I give Star Wars: The Last Jedi, 8 out of 10.

Overall, I liked the movie because it had good dialogue, great action and brought in many loved characters. I felt that the movie creators really got the feeling and vibe of how the original movies were. Also the CGI was very good and all of the action looked amazing. Lastly, the dialogue was very good and the story moved very swiftly along. It all connected together very well for me to understand the plot. However, I had a problem with how the biggest villain of the movie was handled. In a previous movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens he was made to look like a very big force to recon with. To avoid spoilers I’ll skip details, but I feel like how this enemy was handled was very lackluster and all around just a bad call. My final problem was that I feel that one of the main villains should have made a different decision that  would have changed the ending to make it happier and over a cooler more cinematic way to end a very hyped movie for many people.

“I thought the last movie established a good structure for The Last Jedi,” Josh Corsi, 12, said. “It allowed it to follow in its success, which made the new movie that much better. Though the movie had a few shortcomings, it didn’t have a lasting effect to the overall story.”
