Watched from

My last review of this film simply said “Extremely forgettable”.

I watched it for the second time, the first with my children (8/11), and remembered almost nothing about it. So, I guess I nailed that…

This is a terrible film in so many ways. Probably the most egregious error is that, in a film about space wizards, it asks too much of you in the suspension of disbelief. “They built a colossal fleet of gigantic starships and no-one noticed?” And this is merely the tip of the iceberg.

I don’t think there is any doubt that Ben Solo’s story is the most interesting thing here. Rey’s story becomes ridiculous as it tries to reverse out of the cul-de-sac it went down in TLJ.

As we reach the end it become abundantly clear there was no overarching story for these final three films. Or, if there was, it was second guessed. The prequels are much derided for the quality of the film making but at least there was an actual story. As a result, I think this comfortably becomes the worse film of the nine.
