Reviews Roll in for The Last Jedi – and They’re Very Good Indeedby

The world waited with baited breath this time two years ago, when Star Wars returned from slumber in a new guise and under the watchful gaze of Disney – and the results, thankfully, were well worth seeing. The Force Awakens was seen as a return to the form for the franchise after years of George Lucas having overseen what has essentially been his pet project – and after a series of prequels which, to this day, aren’t particularly thought of too fondly. More pressure, therefore, has rested upon the next instalment in the series – The Last Jedi – as Episode VIII kicks into gear as the midway point for the third trilogy. This, essentially, should be the Empire Strikes Back of the new run of movies – and for the most part, critics are absolutely loving it.

Sitting with a 94% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes at the time of writing, Star Wars Episode VIII is garnering praise far and wide, with the site’s main strapline for the movie being particularly glowing: “Star Wars The Last Jedi honors the saga’s rich legacy while adding some surprising twists – and delivering all the emotion-rich action fans could hope for.” High praise indeed – and individual critique is just as positive.

Reviews roll in with thoughts that largely correlate – that this is a movie which plays homage to the series’ long-running mythos while offering genuine surprises along the way. There’s even touches of humor which were so well-appreciated in The Force Awakens – and that despite some complexity, the heart and the narrative in play are clear – all adding up to a very satisfying whole. Much of the praise, while lauding the cast (Mark Hamill returning as Luke Skywalker among them), is levelled at director Rian Johnson – who is remarked to have injected humor and humanity into the series with a genuinely appealing and gripping midway instalment. Could this be the new Empire? It’s outdoing The Force Awakens – so maybe so!
