An odd, indecisive mish mash of vision which, regardless, ends up being genuinely upsetting for what it reveals about DuPont.
As a casual fan, I just wanted this to be a good new addition to the saga, and that it was. Kylo Ren was probably the most interesting character to me, there seems to be real complexity and conflict there under the surface and I wanna see where it goes.
There's plenty to nitpick in the story, but at least it was a fun ride.
It’s so overwhelmingly dense with names, events, non-stop talking, and background music, you almost get lost in the minutia by the end. Which is a shame because what feels like a very directed argument and build up in the first half ends up getting lost in the pile of images and words being thrown at you. It does put together a pretty convincing idea of what a Russian playbook for this kind of thing might be in that first half…
