I really enjoyed this movie, it was not what i was expecting from watching the trailers, i was expecting more of an action movie, but I found myself drawn to the character and the plot was interesting to keep me watching. It seems that a lot of the exposition had been left on the cutting room floor and i would have liked the movie to be longer, but thought it was a decent movie as it was. Not the masterpiece some critics claimed it to be, but still well worth watching.
Finally a superhero movie with some depth and strong characterization, not like the other forgettable by-the-numbers marvel conveyor belt movies this is actually worth watching. Joaquin Phoenix is exceptional in this film, a must see.
I'm not sure where my previous review disappeared to, but I'm not going to write it all out again, simply say that this movie is really nothing special and is purely an un-necessary cash in.
The plot of the story has holes that you could pilot a dreadnought through. The main premise of the story is ludicrous, the few rebel ships travel slightly faster than the First Order so the main thrust of the movie is an exceedingly slow motion chase until the rebels run out of gas (wait, what!)
There is a side mission that turns out to be entirely contrived and unnecessary, with some huge leaps of logic.
If you think Rey's character was very overpowered in TFA, Rian Johnson basically says "hold my coat JJ Abrams" and turns her character into "Mary Sue" levels of incredulity. She is better than Luke, Snoke, all Snokes personal guards, Vader and Ren with no training at all and within 5 minutes of knowing what the force is.
The humor is contrived and out of place, in my showing only one person in the entire audience laughed at any of the Marvel style dumb jokes.
There are many face-palm moments - including Luke being totally out of character for the whole movie, Rose knowing Finn for a couple of hours and putting the entire rebel alliance at risk because she is somehow hopelessly in love with him. She spoils Finns best and defining moment.
Luke's cow milking is the most absurd and un-necessary scene I've seen in any Star Wars film, and possibly any movie, along with Leia's dead... oh wait... Gotcha I'm not! Superman flight, followed by opening space doors and no-one getting sucked out to space. DUMB, DUMB, DUMB.
The movie is also blatantly full of political correctness, including a string of characters that practically have "hello I'm a feminist" tattooed onto their foreheads.
Porgs are a plain cash-grab. I wont be participating in future as Disneys milking of the franchise is becoming as ugly as Lukes space cow milking scene.
