Critic Reviews for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

All Critics (496) | Top Critics (56)

It is trying to accomplish a lot, because it has to tie up every plotline. It has to involve every character. It has to has to take you to every planet... And so, in trying to cram in all of that, it feels very cursory and very rushed.

March 13, 2020 | Rating: 5.3/10 | Full Review…

It doesn't do anything new or even terribly distinctive, but maybe it didn't have to. It just had to be good enough to stick the landing, and it does that.

You sense in this film, J.J. [Abrams] shrinking that world... Everything in this franchise feels like a take back.

The Rise of Skywalker entertains, it elicits laughters, and it makes you feel even as you snicker at some predictably basic and occasionally nonsensical story decisions.

If you disliked "The Last Jedi" (like I did), you'll like - but probably not love - "The Rise of Skywalker." If you liked "The Last Jedi," this review might not be for you.

December 20, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

When we meet up with brash pilot Poe, he's lightspeed-skipping his way out of trouble, and Abrams is in much the same mode, whisking you from one thing to the next before you have much time to think or feel anything in response.
