Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) by Rian Johnson
I won’t waste no time, I liked this Star Wars less than the previous one and I must recognize that "The force awakens" is not a masterpiece either.
The film left me cold for the most part, although obviously, it's great a show with beautiful space battles, laser sabers and a rather enhanced ending.
What I liked most about this film is the development of the relationship between Rey and Kylo Ren (Ben Solo) and the ravaged destiny of Luke Skywalker (although I had other expectations for this character). Mark Hamill’s acting made it bearable, I would say.
For the rest, from the change of director came a narrative disagreement and a bunch of problems: - Rey remains the "Mary-Sue" of the first film. - Finn (#JohnBoyega
) and Poe (#OscarIsaac
), the heroes of the previous movie find their places as token, embarked on a useless quest with a new character named Rose (Asian). - The end of legends, including #CarrieFischer
(already deceased), #MarkHamill
is not up to the saga. - The Resistance, in 30 years of Star Wars reveals an embarrassing amateurism. This is certainly the way for production to make it an endless story. - Snoke has an incomprehensible end. - Humor, sometimes clenching. - The theorization on the "force" and the Skywalker dynasty also leave me perplexed.
The film apparently divides. Critics loved it and fans conspire. Some say you have to see the film a second time to appreciate it for what it is. I'll wisely wait for it to come out in Blu-Ray.
I will conclude by saying that Star Wars has in fact never been a sci-fi work. It is a "space opera", a series of family quarrels/dramas carried in space. Indeed, what is more soap opera than the quote "I am your father"? I get it now.
