    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    ★★½

    Safe and secure, those are the adjectives to describe this film. And the safe and secure approach unfortunately tones down the film.
    After The Last Jedi this is step back. It is an ending to the Skywalker saga which tries to please everyone. That’s understandable when the market forces dictate the content.

    The characters are less than one-dimensional. Almost no romance, fun or drama. No delightful suspense Just action and a lot greedy or frightened people.

    The actors are the only ones that are worth mentioning. The cast with few veterans know that no matter how bad the script or…
