On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has gained 56% positive opinions on behalf of the website users. Such a score situates the film as the worst in the franchise, according to the respective scores of 'Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones' and 'Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace' on the same website. The latter two films gained scores of 57% and 59% respectively.

'The Last Jedi' also performed badly on Metacritic with a score of 5 and more negative reviews than positive ones.

The public vs the critics

The low scores on Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic only serve to further demonstrate the huge gap between public and critic opinions.
