Master Skywalker? I'm with the Resistance. Your sister Leia sent me. We need your help.
This is probably my least favourite Star Wars film. Too many similarities with the almighty "The Empire Strikes Back":
- It starts with the resistance // rebels escaping their base ;
- Rey trains with Luke // Luke trains with Yoda ;
- Canto bight // Cloud City ;
- DJ's betrayal // Lando's betrayal ;
- Rey goes after Kylo against Luke's will // Luke goes after Vader against Yoda's will...
They did change the ending to say that this is a new film and not a pale remake of the 2nd part of the original trilogy, but yeah...
On the other hand, Luke in black ♥ + Luke using the Force ♥♥.
My favourite scene remains the kid at the end who uses the Force to retrieve the broom and looks up at the stars while raising it like a lightsaber, signifying hope for the Resistance but also for the future of the Jedi, Rey not being the last one.
