Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker ★★½

Why I saw this one? Been going to theaters to see every Star Wars movies for over 40 years. Ok.....I admit I skipped Solo when it was in theaters.

What is this one about? The surviving Resistance faces the First Order once more in the final chapter of the Skywalker saga.

My thoughts on this one? Hmmm....I really really disliked the first half of this movie. I thought the story was going nowhere, the action scenes were boring and not very suspenseful. Things got slightly better in the middle of the movie. That was mainly due to callbacks to other better Star Wars movies and the actors that made Star Wars famous.

When looking at the new cast members, the only story line in the entire new Disney trilogy that grabbed my interest was the Adam Driver/Daisy Ridley relationship. The rest of the story lines fell flat for me, and the supposed big payoffs in this finale never happened for me. Of all the Star Wars movies, this is down at the bottom of my rankings with Attack Of The Clones. Final thought: Movie has a few nice moments....but they are few and far between.

Ranked 15th of 224 movies on our UMR 2019 Movie Ranking Page.
