One of the most politically correct pieces of garbage ever created. My what a fantastic franchise you've destroyed Disney. All in the name of a sick ideology.
Everyone who has seen all the Star Wars movies knows this is the worst since they have the others to compare it to.
Actually it's a 4.5 but I'm a star wars fan. I enjoyed the new turn in the force and enjoyed the until now uncharted capacity of the Jedi. The reluctant hero is reborn in Luke Skywalker. I'm now looking forward to where this series will take viewers. The key to a good movie is broken expectation with purpose. This movie gave me a lot of "What!!! No!!" It truly riled me up and had me look at things differently. Star Wars is BACK!
Star Wars isn't fun like it once was.
What was done to the characters is evident but it's sad they had to send the original Star War crew off in a disrespectful manner since Lucus was forced off the helm.
The hatred towards this movie is too strong. It wasn´t perfect, for example the feministic stuff was too obvious and forced but as a whole it was funny and creative.There are not many movies todays which are not either remakes of older stuff or adaptation of comic books or books. It takes much more creativity to build a world with characters from nothing than to take what someone else wrote and make a movie from it.
The decay and corruption of the media is everywhere and Hollywood is at the forefront. Star Wars is a excellent example of it. The cultural conditioning that has always been evident has greatly accelerated in the last decade and this indoctrination has been aimed at children in particular including young families. Those of us who can perceive this can't even enjoy the previously mostly harmless escapism of a movie but now the leftist agenda has taken precedence over entertainment. Star Wars as envisioned by its creator was pure entertainment unfettered with ideological driven politics, but since being virtually ousted from control, it has deteriorated into politically correct doctrine we see in this episode.
Force Awakens was alright, nothing revolutionary but I was at least hoping this movie would build up something unique on top of that foundation. Nope. The worst Star Wars media since Attack of the Clones and it was made infinitely worse because of the high bar that Rebels has set. This husk of Star Wars has the pieces but none of the heart... at least the cinematography and music were enjoyable.
An endless barrage of feminist pandering. Could have been good otherwise.
The writers decided to portray all the male characters as unredeemable, weak, foolish and or incompetent. The opposite was reserved for the female cast. Elevating one sex in such a disproportionate manner to diminish the other is a distasteful way to assuage their hurt feelings and irrational hatred that was a response to Trump defeating Clinton. Most people aren't aware of this but the point is that their hostility should have been expressed in other ways, not at the paying public and certainly not in a family movie.
woah, simply the smartest, most meta star wars movie yet.
My favorite and most interesting characters to me were, Kylo Ren/Ben Solo and Rey. Their very compelling story and unique characters, great acting, good chemistry were amazing. They were the ones I wanted to watch most, on the screen. I hope they are the main focus, with more screen time, in the next film. I don't think only one more film will be enough to adequately flesh out, cover and satisfactorily conclude their story. I wish they would make more films with their characters having the main and the majority of the focus. This could become one of the greatest love stories, in the Star Wars universe or any other, for that matter!
really bad script worse S.W movie made.
Worst Star Wars movie to date. Same hype as Black Panther but much worse.
Loved it ! .. cant wait for the next one :)
Looks like this bad movie is finishing with a 3 star rating. A pity.
Was too political for a Star Wars films. Killed off ****, but left leia. Too many Deus ex machinas. Overall worse than phantom menace
Princess Leia was relegated to the B team in this one and Luke Skywalker didn't fare much better.
Could have been great but went out of its way to disappoint.
Loved it!!! Didn't see Princes William & Harry!!
I liked it for the first 20 minutes and then it went off on a tangent. Perhaps the people that did this should watch the previous shows so they can understand how the characters have evolved and how they would react to future situations in a similar manner.
As a die-hard fan it broke my heart to see this happen to my favorite sci-fi series.
WOW! People seem to either love it or hate it. I´m in the group of those who love it!
THE BEST REMAKE YET
Too disappointed for words.
Thought it was Great can’t wait for the dvd to come out
This film trashes every thing good about star wars. Good bye to the jedi and welcome to Star Wars any thing goes film. You might as well put in the seven drawfs as a new jedi and then talk about global warming and pet safety and have Mikey mouse talk about that smoking is bad for you, and that all men are stupid. Good buy Star Wars
The Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the Best Movie of this Year. Unfortunately this movie is not for a mediocre person. That could be the reason for so many one star ratings.
Despite assertions that this movie has destroyed Star Wars, and was was awful, we have great news that “Game of Thrones” creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will be writing and producing a new series of Star Wars films. So take a pass on anything Rian Johnson does while looking forward to writers that can do this franchise justice.
Good action-bad show.
Awful in most ways that matter unless one if below the age of ten. Perhaps the spammer has moved on to Rotten Tomatoes where the shows rating is sitting at 48% approval which is a much more realistic rating than the average here.
This movie single handedly has destroyed an epic franchise.
I hope it can't get worse than this. It was brutally bad.
Definitely among the worst movies I've ever seen.
We liked this movie so much that we are going tonight to the last show.
Finn who was an integral part of Star Wars: The Force Awakens was made to appear foolish, childish, impotent, and at best, misguided. The social justice warriors that wrote this were so intent on making women condescendingly superior to men that they stripped them of any heroic attributes. That alone is enough to give this a movie a zero if it were possible.
Plots holes, bad acting, painfully bad jokes, pointless scenes and characters. Terrible in every sense of the word. 5 stars is laughable.
Terrible addition to the franchise...nothing in this more was good...excessive humor, no backstories, killing off the one good thing it had going for itself, Mark Hamill. The movie is all over the place like it was produced, written and directed by a toddler. Worst SW movie ever. Wait for Netflix or dvd rental for it...save your money folks. Besides the obvious this movie was filled with political garbage and casted all men as stupid, grumpy and unimportant while females were heroes and the leaders in every situation. Rey is like a god needing no training what so ever. Chewbacca, 3po and r2’s screen time is a min at best...heck B.B.-8 is only in 5 min. Again just awful!!!
Visually stunning however the story was absolutely terrible.
That is a Great movie that deserves Oscar. Deep meaning and such amazing performance.
Even most of the movies I've been unsatisfied with I'd likely give them as much as a 2 but this edition of Star Wars is in a class by itself. There's nothing subtle about the statement it makes yet if it was not present even some of the more bizarre, boring or unnecessary scenes could be forgiven in which case I would be rating this 4 star.
Wow...That was one of the worst writing in star wars franchise. -plot holes upon plot holes; -everyone act like idiots; -0 logic; -0 chemestry between heroes of the story; -obscene amount of cringy comedy; -character of Phasma absolutely…
Another uninspired copy and paste script. Some absolutely stupid character abilities. No respect for the characters/legacy. A bunch of crappy effortless CGI. Cheap humour. 3 stars for the percentage of the movie I wasn't bored. It's just another dumb movie now - the legacy is dead.
Lots of problems with plot and such but overall I liked it. If you are a Star Wars fan like me, go and see it. It's got lots of Star Wars fun. Luke and Leia show up and a load of bad guys attack the Rebel Alliance. Turn off your negativity and just enjoy it for a fun romp in a Galaxy... far far away. Far from perfect, but still worth seeing. 3/5
I am not a DIE-HARD Star Wars fan but I have seen all the movies, played both KOTORs, read some literature etc. You can say I'm just an average fan. And maybe it was because of high expectations, fueled by rave reviews, but after the
Awful. Save your money. No surprise it's still rated 3 stars. Got to hurt the 5 star troll. Probably the worst ever Star Wars.
Luke is portrayed as a coward through the whole movie and is reluctant and never actually showed up to fight Kylo and this is weak writing. How can that become a cause by fighting via virtual reality..lol? It's better if Luke actually showed up, kicked some First Order butt and then became a sacrifice, ergo uniting everyone and doing the right thing. Man, that would have been such a powerful scene and all could be forgiven (maybe). Comedy scenes included are absurd (comedy is good to have but not this way) and take away the sense of urgency and importance of the fight too much, characters are shallow and cliche, enough plot holes to fill every hole on a golf course, and severe deus ex machina (the Force mostly) used for convenience and lazy/bad writing. Men in this movie are portrayed as idiots or macho. Women are not well represented or respected either and does them a disservice. The people who funded (Disney), wrote and directed this movie must have no morality or clue, therefore the movie had none.
I’m giving this a 1 because me and 3 other people in my group decided to leave the theater after the first part of the movie otherwise I would have given it 0if that were possible.. I have to say that I’m a fan of the original trilogy but except another friend in my group the other two didn’t care about Star Wars very much so they were in just to enjoy a movie together (We are all about 30 years old). I didn’t have great expectations, I’m not a fan of episode VII, I find it inconsistent and not original but overall I think it’s an ok movie, so I tried to have an open mind for this one. I did know about the mixed reviews but nothing could have prepared me for what I’ve witnessed. I’m not going to debate the lore or the direction the story is progressing in these new films, I personally don’t like it because for me Star Wars was something else and I think Disney could have told a new original story for the new generations without the need to destroy the heroes of the old movies and their accomplishments, but , I repeat, this is only my personal opinion. ‘The Last Jedi’ was very good visually but story wise it was ridiculous, rushed, full of plot holes and inconsistecies and I’m not saying that in refer to the original trilogy, but to episode VII and even with itself. The characters choices and many scenes are totally random and don’t make any sense. As if this couldn’t be enough the movie is full of cheap forced “funny” moments and evident political topics that don’t belong in a Star Wars movie at all. We had I think 6 or 7 kids sitting in the row in front of us but I never heard anyone laughing once. I’m completely puzzled about the great reviews this movie is getting. Are good visuals, special effects and cute birds really enough to make a bad movie a great movie?
After seeing The Force Awakens I was extremely excited to see this movie. The Force Awakens was refreshing, magical, and mysterious. Yes there were monitor issues, but it was very entertaining and I hardly noticed them. So, after two years The Last Jedi was released and I was ready to go. Little did I know that I would be walking out of the theater in such disappointment. I couldn't believe it! This film did not deliver the same experience The Force Awakens provided. It felt like it was a tree whose core was rotten. It lacked something. A lot of something. It looked and sounded like Star Wars but it didn't feel like Star Wars. It felt poorly written with no clear direction. Many of my favorite characters had been completely mischaracterized. I could care less for any of the characters. There were so many moments where I found myself being ripped away from the movie and I realized I was sitting in a movie theater. Having to listen to a political lecture really took me out of the experience. I want to forget about life hear on earth and go on a magical journey and see people do impossible and amazing things. This movie was very disappointing and unsatisfying. There were many questions from The Force Awakens that weren't even addressed. The answers we did get were very underwhelming. I have very little hope for the next installment. We'll see.
