To date, this is easily the most polarizing Star Wars film. I enjoy it, and it does have some great action scenes as well as some surprises. There are some flaws however. The entire sequence on the casino planet of Canto Bight felt like it was from the prequels. Additionally, the character of DJ played by Benicio Del Toro was a lazy and contrived plot convenience, and the character of Rose Tico was kind of annoying (nothing against the actress who plays her though, who unfortunately has been unfairly bullied by overzealous fans).

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the second of the current continuity of the Star War main cinematic story and it doesn't disappoint in drama, battle scenes, twists and foreshadowing. The First Order continues to hammer brutally at what's left of the Resistance while Rey attempts to convince a disheartened Luke Skywalker to rejoin the fight. Kylo Ren and Rey, meanwhile, find that there exists some bond between that Supreme Leader of the First Order Snoke intends to exploit. A few new characters are introduced amid the chaos, some major characters perish, and what we're left with is both sides reeling from staggering loses and regrouping as we head into the third film. This movie, while a bit overlong and slow at points, is a strong addition to the Star Wars franchise and, with nods to several prior films given, maintains its own identity and continues to carry on the dread and harrowing action of its most recent predecessors, The Force Awakens and Rogue One. Overall, a good, solid Star Wars movie well worth a look!

Continuity mistake: During the throne room fight against the red-armoured guards, one of them splits his weapon into 2 blades. In the shot where he gets Rey into an arm lock, the blade in the guard's left hand vanishes from the scene completely, in the middle of a shot. The hand that held the weapon is obscured by Rey's body at the point when the disappearance happens. It could be that the actor dropped it (a strange thing for an elite fighter to do), but then the blade is nowhere to be seen on the floor in the wider shot when Rey kills him.

Trivia: Finn and Rose's mission on Canto Bight is interrupted by the fact that they parked their ship illegally. This also happens to the heroes in the Star Wars parody film Spaceballs by Mel Brooks that came out in 1987.

More trivia for Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Question: Why do Snoke's guards attack Kylo Ren and Rey after Kylo kills Snoke? They no longer need to obey him, and he is past protecting.

Answer: Kylo Ren has betrayed the First Order. They were loyal to the First Order. You are assuming they only did so out of fear of Snoke rather than out of loyalty.

Answer: Kylo killing Snoke is no different than any leader being assassinated. If the U.S. President is assassinated, the Secret Service will come after the assailant (s) even though the president is past protecting.
