Review of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
by Rouge Gum
Posted on March 22nd, 2020
Negative 3
Overall Rating
i only give this movie one & a half stars for its cinematography, score and the brilliant performances of the actors in their roles. now that's out of the way, let's tackle the story. it's pure garbage storytelling, there's a lot of factors that contribute to that. kk is one of those factors, j.j abrams also shares that blame where he did not commit doing the second film in this new trilogy. and lastly rian johnson for ruining what j.j has started. but the root of this problem is that disney itself doesn't have a plan in the first place on what to do with the new trilogy that they essentially plan when they bought swu. j.j tried to fix what rian did in the last film but it gets much worse than the previous one. you can start it all with how rey is been written as a mary sue character. including what they did to kylo ren. it is tragic to think that skywalker's family lineage had died just to save rey. and the revelation of rey's family heritage is just a way of j.j. to scrap rian's envision for rey's background. there's a lot of gotcha moment in this film that i hate. even the lightsaber fights become dull and i got bored watching it. and i've seen this movie twice on the same day back to back screenings and it doesn't change my perception. i hate this movie a lot. (i can still tolerate tlj but this one is pure garbage that shouldn't be made). rey and kylo's fight scenes are pretty boring and i hate every single moment's that they interact you can just feel the rise of sexual tensions between the two characters. (they should've at least get a sex scene during the final moments of this film before kylo ren died). oh did you read that? yeah, they killed kylo ren so much for the title of this movie? rise of skywalker my ass. it should've been kylo and not rey that needs to continue this whatever story that they created. and also don't forget the horrible twist they made out of general hux character. (i genuinely despise that twist). i feel like finn's character has no use for this movie, his story ends when phasma died and he should've been dead during tlj. and thank god they made the korean girl character to be less relevant and only given a few scenes. the new characters are cool, i liked the new general that they introduce and also the old pals of poe especially zorii. i got no problem with the endings of other characters that are still alive in this film. i'm just glad that c-3po got his memory back, thanks to his bff droid r2-d2.
