Andres Clemente takes a look at the new Star Wars franchise movie “Star Wars the Last Jedi.”

World Building
Breaking the classic Star Wars storytelling pattern.
Kilo Ren is an amazing character
Kilo Ren and Rey’s connection
Some comedic bits that give the movie some air over the heavy drama
Great performance by the entire cast.
Fun to see Luke Skywalker back
The new cast continues to carry the mantle extremely well.
Amazing visuals
Great new alien creatures that make you realize you’re in a Star Wars world, but dont distract from the plot.
Movie takes it time to develop the characters introduced in Force Awakens
Added character of Rose played beautifully by Kelly Marie Tran was a welcomed surprise.
Some great long awaited showdowns, standout has to be in Supreme Leader Snoke’s chambers.
Bittersweet to watch Carrie Fisher’s last turn as Princess Leia.
Rey learns about the force extremely fast
Some jokes did not land.
Benicio del Toro’s character, even though it was interesting, did not enjoy the choices the actor made.
The light saber dueling is less choreographed.
Would’ve liked more Droid screen time.
Character’s should not survive thousand of deaths.
A lackluster conclusion to a Kilo – Rey confrontation
Final Comments
Great to have Star Wars back in movie theaters. Rian Johnson does a great job expanding the universe and develop the new characters. Dont miss this movie, and highly recommend watching it on IMAX.
