The Last Jedi Review (Spoiler Alert)

Marcus Rowland, Junior Contributor

The most recent film in the on going Star Wars saga, The Last Jedi, released last week. Critics loved it, on Rotten Tomatoes it was given a 93%. Unfortunately, it seems that much of the audience does not love it quite as much, of the audience who watched and rated it on Rotten Tomatoes only 54% liked it. This is the lowest of all the starwars movies. Despite all this the Star Wars name brand will not be short on money, it has already made $512 million at the box office in a little less than a week.

Personally I thought the film was made well but it differed to much from original movies in feel and emotion. The scripting was excellent as were the effects, but it just felt off. The movie was too bold, but not like the prequel movies that were down right bad. The Last Jedi didn’t have any ridiculous characters or bad romance; it just flowed differently.

All that being said I would definitely recommend people see it, but be warned it’s a bit too long: at 2 hours and 33 minutes. It was not much longer than the original, A New Hope at 2 hours, but A New Hope feld like it need all that time the Last Jedi just didn’t. Maybe that’s just the overall feeling, it just didn’t.
