    It's not even a movie. It's game cutscenes that I watched on Netflix at x1.5 speed. There is no structure whatsoever. Every scene moves so quickly that nothing has impact because they have no time to breathe. It makes Suicide Squad look well edited. That's one half of the film's problems. The other is the plot.

    The Rise of Skywalker is a constant barrage of…
