It’s been two years since audiences saw the first new Star Wars movie. The film left audiences with a major cliffhanger in the form of Luke Skywalker’s silent reveal. For two years audiences have speculated on what would happen when the next installment came out, and now that the film is out, they finally have their answers.

 

The plot of the film follows three different stories. The main story being that the main ship of Resistance is quickly running out of fuel while it is being chased by the First Order. The two smaller plots are Rey’s training with Luke, and Finn and Roses attempt to stop the First Order from tracking the Resistance. All of these plots are tied together near the end of the film when most of the characters are aboard the First Orders ship. They each fight their own battles, but the ship is destroyed and they are forced to leave. What remains of the Resistance goes to the surface of a nearby planet and defends themselves against the oncoming First Order troops. Like shows up to save the day, but ultimately sacrifices himself so that the resistance may live. The film ends with all of the characters flying away in safety.

 

While “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is good, it’s not perfect. One of the biggest gripes was the character Rose Tico, as fans and viewers felt that she was an unnecessary addition to the cast. Plot wise, she makes some foolish decisions too. She is nearly responsible for the death of the Resistance when she saves Finn from sacrificing himself, ultimately letting the first order advance upon the resistance. Another major complaint among fans was the way that Luke Skywalker was portrayed. Throughout the movie we see Luke as a scared old man, someone who has failed and wants to hold onto the past. This is a departure from the Luke that audiences saw in Return of the Jedi, where he thinks about his actions and weighs all of his decisions. Despite this, the film is still enjoyable, and you should still make a decision for yourself.

 

Critics liked the movie for its bold choices, but some fans despised it. Despite this and its mid December release date, it went on to be the highest grossing movie of 2017.
