The movie had a high bar to reach, not only ending the sequel but the entire Skywalker storyline. For this fan, the movie jumped over that bar. While there are still some loose ends, that gives me hope of more movies and shows about this galaxy far, far away.

This was a the most fun I had watching a train wreck of a movie.

All those people who are giving out so much hate to this film, sure, they can hate whatever and whenever they want, but I enjoyed it, so much! I was enticed in the story, I thought it ended so well. My only teensy weensy problem with it is the whole beginning part. No spoilers. But it sometimes gets a little too fast, but throughout the rest of the movie, I thought it was a perfect send off to the franchise. That’s just my opinion.

I was 12 when A New Hope was released, and I took my son to see this, and he is 12.. A lot of plot twists, plenty of action, and for a 2 hour 21 minute movie, it moved along extremely well. There were some questions answered, and some questions created. This may be the end of the Skywalker era, but hopefully it will be the beginning of the “new” era. Avoid all of the reviewers saying it was “too safe”, “too clichè”... enjoy it!!!

The only hang ups in the movie is the repetitive “I sense something in the distance” face. And that the pacing for the first thirty minutes or so feels a lil jumpy. Other than those, it was AWESOME

If you’re a Star Wars fan, I think you’ll enjoy this film. It has a little bit of everything and stays true to what I think the franchise has been all about. Definitely glad we went opening night.

Thank you JJ Abrams and all the Star Wars team for putting your heart and soul into this. Whatever the critics say, you won me over. Long Live Skywalker

Great fx but, the story seems as though it was written by someone at the last minute. The lore is all off, a lot of things don’t make sense as to HOW, Rey is more OP than ever, etc.

it's a middle of the road movie that felt more like a longer story was trying to be told.

In terms of story, the first half of the movie is a bit all over the place. Early on some of the scenes feel a bit rushed as we quickly cut away. However, the second half of the film really picks up. Overall, although it is not the Avengers: Endgame level conclusion many expected, is it still a good film filled with many enjoyable moments and pay offs. Not the best Star Wars film but not the worst neither.

Excellent close to the entire saga. Amazing writing to bring in older characters and tie off loose ends. Some strange choices made in the finale. It felt like they wanted to try to please too many people and mashed a few different endings together. Some of the end choices made did not feel organic, but still an overall excellent addition to the Star Wars universe and a beautiful ending to the Skywalker saga.

Review from an average fan. No spoilers. I’m not a super fan but I am a fan of Star Wars films. I don’t read any of the novels or cartoon shows. The movie itself was great. As a stand-alone this movie would’ve been very satisfying. I can guarantee you can watch this movie and understand it for the most part without watching any of the other films. This is where I feel I should knock a star down. Obviously this film is not stand-alone and not just a sequel but the end of a series so the pressure is there. I felt like a lot of the build up from the previous two films didn’t have that bang and meshing together I was expecting. Overall, the movie was entertaining. Answered some questions but left some unanswered and rose mew ones. Don’t base it off “professionals” reviews from critics. I can see if you’re a super fan you might now really enjoy. As just a “casual” fan I am sure you will enjoy it.

It’s frenzied, briefly infuriating, and eventually, grudgingly, satisfying, but it’s like being force-fed fandom: Your belly is filled, but there’s no pleasure in the meal.

The massive jumble of standoffs, near-misses, tense confrontations, narrow escapes and slick victories, while momentarily exciting, can lack plausible motivation and credibility. More often than not, one wonders not so much what just happened but why, and what was at stake.

The burden of wrapping up a 40-year franchise weighs heavily on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, an overstuffed chase film that barely lets up from its connect-the-dots MacGuffin-heavy plot for even a second or two.
