This movie was supposed to build the threat for the final install of the trilogy. But instead it destroyed everything that could have potentially been a plot thread to follow onto in Episode 9. RJ wrote Episode 8 like he was writing episode 9. He literally left nothing for JJ to work with. Which is probably why we ended up with the Emperor popping out of nowhere. Because who do you build a villain for a triology in the span of a single movie. You can't. So JJ re-used a familiar character that already had a proper setup and people know he's a big meanie. Whoever liked TLJ doesn't care about the direction of the trilogy. For if they did, they wouldn't like it. Because it literally undermined the concept of the trilogy by axing too many plot points and building none. This reminds me of how Flat Earthers deal with things. They don't build up their theory, they poke holes at the heliocentric/globe earth model. RJ pecked at Episode 7's plot lines until there was nothing left and called it a day.
Bad movie. Turned a Star Wars fan off Star Wars. Even Jar Jar didn't do that. I would rather watch The Phantom Menace where all the characters were digitally changed to be Jar Jar than watch this movie.
Ripped the soul out of Star Wars legacy.
This is a how to manual on how to kill a franchise. What a pile of hot garbage this is. So many plot holes, so much bad acting. 1/5 Only got 1 star because its Star Wars. crap.
not too bad I had a hard time understanding it a bit
Tries way to hard to be progressive. I actually liked the other two Disney Star war, but through this one I was just waiting for it to end.
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.
