Star Wars: The Last Jedi Mini-Review
Is it good? Sure.
Does it have moments of greatness? Yes.
Will I see it again? Probably not.
Why not? Becuz I’ve already seen “The Empire Strikes Back” more times than I can remember, and this is really just a remake of that one. The order of the scenes is a little scrambled, and there are a couple of little differences, but overall….. same overarching theme. Desperate evacuation, walkers assault base, Luke meets Yoda, I mean Rey meets Luke. Dark Side force cave. Force ghosts. Leaving before ready to confront the big bad due to a vision, except it’s a trap. Stop me if you’ve heard this before…..
So my overall verdict is: See it for the spectacle and becuz it’s Star Wars and it’s a fun 2.5 hours, but don’t expect to be blown away by anything original either.
