Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

The latest film brings conclusion to a nine-part movie series. I am not quite sure how to describe the film. We did enjoy it and thought it to be a satisfying end to the series. To get there, however, meant sitting through some rather corny dialog, odd music, and a lot of visits with characters from previous episodes; the film seemed more interested in paying homage to the series than creating anything new and exciting. The story also felt rushed to me. I did like how it brought resolution to the question that started it regarding the power of good versus evil. I thought Adam Driver as Kylo Ren and Daisy Ridley as Ray were both very strong in their roles. Thumbs up for a film whose final quarter is much better than the rest of the film and, while not a perfect film, is still entertaining. It is not one of the better episodes, but for me, it was a decent way to end it all. (2019; 3 Stars).
