Star Wars: The Last Jedi's user reviews

The Telegraph

"It?s less Star Wars as you?ve never seen it than Star Wars as you?ve never felt it."

Read review Robbie Collin
Roger Ebert

"Writer/director Rian Johnson?s Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a sprawling, incident- and character-packed extravaganza that picks up at the end of 'Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens' and guides the series into unfamiliar territory. It?s everything a fan could want from a Star Wars film and then some."

Read review Matt Zoller Seitz
Cine Premiere

"We are in front of a film full of action, memorable moments, moving scenes and a high dose of adventure and emotion. [...] It becomes a mix of all the very best in the Star Wars film universe

Read review Arturo Magaña Arce

"No matter how much money has been poured into a movie, it?s emotional generosity that matters, and Johnson gives without squandering. His great gift is that he knows when to stop."

Vanity Fair

"The Force is, to me, still silly Star Wars mumbo jumbo, but Johnson finds a way to underscore it with humanity, with a classical Greek rumble of true pathos. On that front, 'The Last Jedi' is a pure success, accessing the molten core of its drama and grappling with it in nuanced ways."

Rolling Stone

"The Star Wars universe is the best toy box a fanboy could ever wish for, and Johnson makes sure that 'Jedi' is bursting at the seams with knockout fun surprises, marvelous adventure and shocking revelations that will leave your head spinning."

"Audiences will likely come away from 'The Last Jedi' with a lot of complaints and questions. But they?re at least likely to feel they?re in the hands of someone who cares about the series as much as they do, someone who loves its history, but sees the wide-open future ahead of it as well."

"'The Last Jedi' delivers everything you want from a Star Wars movie ? fierce lightsaber action, space dogfights, exotic creatures[...] ? but layers it with story twists, character arcs and an emotional wallop that you could never have predicted."

Read review Ian Freer
The Guardian

"'The Last Jedi' gives you an explosive sugar rush of spectacle. It?s a film that buzzes with belief in itself and its own mythic universe ? a euphoric certainty that I think no other movie franchise has. And there is no provisional hesitation or energy dip of the sort that might have been expected between episodes seven and nine."

Read review Peter Bradshaw

"Although 'The Last Jedi' meets a relatively high standard for franchise filmmaking, Johnson?s effort is ultimately a disappointment. If anything, it demonstrates just how effective supervising producer Kathleen Kennedy and the forces that oversee this now Disney-owned property are at molding their individual directors? visions into supporting a unified corporate aesthetic."

Read review Peter Debruge

From the astonishing light-and-color show in the opening minutes, the movie never lets up, communing with a cinematic tradition that has its roots in Lucas? original ambitions in the avant garde.

New York Post

"Sure, it?s just a space Western, but Star Wars is one of the our most popular modern mythologies. Johnson respects that. He?s infused the storyline with new energy and artistry, and I can?t wait to see it again."

Read review Sara Stewart

"It's naïve until it gets stupid [...] and its script, more than broken pieces, has really big holes. [...] All this is not a fault, but a giant virtue that gives the product things that were almost absolutely lacking in 'The Force Awakens' from its second half: freshness, life, joy."

"Maybe that?s the most exciting part of the very exciting 'The Last Jedi': after 40 years, the Star Wars series knows how to be surprising."

Read review Josh Spiegel
New York Times

"Yes, the latest Star Wars installment is here, and, lo, it is a satisfying, at times transporting entertainment. Remarkably, it has visual wit and a human touch, no small achievement for a seemingly indestructible machine that revved up 40 years ago and shows no signs of sputtering out (ever)."

The Wrap

"If having pure fun at a Star Wars movie is wrong, I don?t want to be right. So for me, 'The Last Jedi' falls right behind 'The Empire Strikes Back' and maybe the original film in providing the thrills and the heartbreak, the heroism and villainy, and the romance and betrayal that makes these films such a treat even for those of us who can?t name all the planets or the alien species or even the Empire?s flunkies."

Entertainment Weekly

"The film simply drags too much in the middle. Somewhere in the film?s 152-minute running time is an amazing 90-minute movie."

Read review Chris Nashawaty
The Playlist

"Star Wars has always been about destiny, fate, and legacy. However, perhaps like no film in the franchise yet, 'The Last Jedi' seriously considers the hubris that comes with certainty, and how knots from the past that can keep you bound from moving forward."

Read review Kevin Jagernauth

"If 'The Force Awakens' was a matter of giving fans what they wanted, then 'The Last Jedi' is giving them what they need, which is more complex characters and themes that break free of the traditional archetypes and mythic tropes the franchise was founded upon."

Read review Matt Goldberg
The Hollywood Reporter

"Loaded with action and satisfying in the ways its loyal audience wants it to be, writer-director Rian Johnson's plunge into George Lucas' universe is generally pleasing even as it sometimes strains to find useful and/or interesting things for some of its characters to do."

Read review Todd McCarthy
El País

"This has become a serial so calculated and soft that it bores me to death, with no inspiration and no soul, servile to a formula that is infalible in the market."
