Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Spoiler-Free Review

I felt this film was honestly just average. A lot of the latter-half felt like a rehash of Return of the Jedi, Kylo Ren’s character felt like it went in a circle of nowhere, and Rey finally got character development by the movie retconning her past. I honestly felt Kylo Ren’s entire character arc was a circular waste. It felt as if they retconned Luke and Leia by having Leia be a trained force user and Luke’s ghost giving advice to Rey during certain spoiler portions. I actually liked Luke’s depiction in the prior film and Rey needing training from Luke made less sense as a result of this film when Leia could train her just fine. Although, I suppose people could argue that Leia needed to focus on the resistance.

It was stupendously average just like the majority of Star Wars has always been. It isn’t the worst Star Wars film nor the best Star Wars film. It’s just average to me. Not much else I can say about it.
