Personally I find Reviews Very Subjective but Always and Interesting Read
Nostalgia is a wonderful thing, and the last two Star Wars films have explored and plundered their past with great success. Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi knows and loves its predecessors and it certainly isn’t above a heart-warming (or a heart-breaking) call-back every now and then, but it’s a bold step away from what’s come before and that ambition is thrilling to watch.
The film’s darkness was expected. This is the middle chapter in the trilogy after all, but it’s much more than a glum springboard for the grand finale and it doesn’t just crib from The Empire Strikes Back. It’s about finding hope when all hope is lost, and the way it foregrounds the need for humanity in times of conflict resonates even more strongly than the “Rebel!” rallying cry of Rogue One.
