The final installment of Disney’s Star Wars saga lacks the energy, hope, and joy of the original films. Full of ups and downs like a roller coaster, but all built on a boring story.
Luke Skywalker could be the hero of the story, except for him there were no stakes. There is no risk, and without risk, there is no glory.
From a strict movie point of view, it’s a hot mess. Despite that, this movie moved me as few have done in recent memory.
‘The Last Jedi’ may be best summed up as a cinematic act of demolition. Disney has declared war on the past, on teachers, and on the idea of extraordinary heroes.
‘The Last Jedi’ is the Star Wars movie we wanted, the one we needed, and absolutely more than we deserved.
‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ is an egregiously bad movie: Poorly written, badly directed, lazily acted, and bombastically grating in both sound and image.
From the early reactions I saw online, I expected ‘The Last Jedi’ to be the best Star Wars movie since ‘Empire Strikes Back.’ That it is not.
Listen to this episode of Federalist Radio Hour for a spoiler free preview of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and what Disney has in store for the franchise.
The Russo brothers have made memorable films as part of the ‘Avengers’ series. Disney should let them take over ‘The Last Jedi.’
If this movie is what its title implies, then Luke might just as well have gotten a job selling power converters at Tosche Station.
