Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Review: A Disappointing End To The Skywalker Saga


Fan service doesn’t work the way it did in The Force Awakens in Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker.

Because he is a Star Wars equivalent of an originalist, J.J. Abrams’ perspective on that direction is to trace the Original Trilogy as closely as he can, and while that was tolerable with his first Star Wars movie, his second attempt is far less successful. The Force Awakens may be a remakequel of the original Star Wars, but it also did a spiffy job establishing the state of the universe 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi and introduced a brilliant ensemble of new heroes and villains in Daisy Ridley’s Rey, John Boyega’s Finn, Oscar Isaac’s Poe, and Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren.
