What critics are saying about Star Wars: The Last Jedi
In just a few days, it'll be as if millions of voices suddenly cry out in joy. Two years after Star Wars: The Force Awakens put a thoroughly postmodern spin on the classic Skywalker saga, Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi will pick up precisely where we left off. Although Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) only appeared in the final shot of The Force Awakens and didn't say a word, he's undoubtedly at the heart of The Last Jedi. But there are also plenty other storylines to pick up: Rey (Daisy Ridley) is struggling to understand who she truly is, Finn (John Boyega) goes on a mission to the casino city of Canto Bight, and Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) isn't sure about new Resistance leader Vice-Admiral Holdo (Laura Dern).
The early reviews are in, and critics almost universally agree The Last Jedi is unlike any Star Wars movie we've ever seen. But is that a good thing? Here's what they're saying.
