Gannon Nordberg’s review published on Letterboxd:
This movie achieved everything it sought out to achieve and I think the story wraps up pretty nicely. That is, until Disney inevitably decides to do another spin-off of some kind with these characters. I mean, who could blame them?
I can think of at least half a dozen "oh snap!" moments that took my breath away and there were also some interesting plot twists.
There is a TON of action — lots of space battles & light-saber fighting. It's also much darker and possibly more violent than the previous films.
I’d rank this as good as ‘The Last Jedi’ but probably not quite as good as ‘The Force Awakens’ in my opinion but I’m sure the nostalgia-factor had a lot to with that in 2015.
