Keith the Critic Movie Reviews - Star Wars Episode VIII The Last Jedi

This Star Wars installment takes up where The Force Awakens left off in 2015.

The Resistance continues to fight against the First Order.  Princess Leia, played by Carrie Fisher, is evacuating as Poe Dameron, played by Oscar Isaac, fights off the First Order.  Kylo Ren, played by Adam Driver, has an opportunity to destroy Leia's ship, but cannot do so knowing that his mother is aboard.  Rey, played by Daisy Ridley, continues to seek out Luke Skywalker, again played by Mark Hamill.  As the last Jedi, the Resistance needs his help.  

Luke resists joining the fight but agrees to train Rey in the use of the force.  Rey finds that she is able to communicate with Kylo Ren through telepathy.  How long can the Resistance continue to hold off the First Order?

This movie was better than Rogue One that came out in 2016.  The directing by Rian Johnson was excellent, the script (also by Rian Johnson) was fantastic, as was the looks of the set and the music.  You can't leave out the great special effects always found in a Star Wars movie.  I rewatched the first movie, and special effects have come a long way.  All the last characters made an appearance including the late great Carrie Fisher, John Boyega as Finn, Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill, and Adam Driver.  All performed fantastically.  

This movie gets 4 out of 4 stars.  Stay for the tribute to Carrie Fisher at the end.  She will be deeply missed.
