Critic Reviews for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

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.

It started to feel like a greatest hits compilation...bringing out what everyone knows...handsomely-constructed and entertaining as it was, there was an element of pandering to what the perceived fans wanted...

The real Leia, the one we fell in love with, lives on inside us as she always has. She still inspires us, amuses us, moves us. And we can visit her anytime we want, at the touch of a play button.

A sizable amount of the narrative of The Rise of Skywalker is spent specifically undoing what happened in The Last Jedi, and the result is a film that lacks forward momentum.

December 27, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

I think The Rise of Skywalker is poorly directed, terribly filmed, clumsily edited, lamely scripted (a perennial problem, that one) and badly acted.

The reason why this film works (as opposed to the many editions which were overpowered by clanking machines) is because of the emotional connect it creates with us.
