To begin i will be talking about things that happened in The Last Jedi so there will be spoilers. If you are trying to avoid them please turn away. SPOILERS TO FOLLOW
The latest film from the Star Wars Universe begins with the Resistance packing up from their base as the First Order is about to start bombing it. As the Resistance escapes Kylo Ren and the First Order try to destroy the ships yet Kylo hesitates as he senses his mother and doesn’t want to destroy her, but a TIE fighter hits the bridge of the ship killing several leaders like Admiral Akbar. Thankfully they aren’t all killed as Leia uses some of her Jedi abilities to save herself, but she was still injured and leaves Vice Admiral Holdo (Laura Dern) in charge over Poe.
While this is going on Rey is on Ahch-To with Luke, we return with Rey presenting the Lightsaber to him only for him to refuse to come help. We dive into what the force is something like Midi-chlorians that are in all things that bind us all together, check on the last couple of episodes from The Clone Wars animated series. They lean on the spiritual side of the force which is great as well.
Back in the great space chase the Resistance get there own resistance as Poe wants to mutiny over Holdo when he discovers that Holdo’s plan is to use small transports to escape from the First Order on to an old rebel base on Crait. Poe thinks this is dumb and has Finn and Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) go on a secret mission to find a code breaker to get them on the First Order ship to stop their ability to track the rebel fleet. They (Finn and Rose) have to go to Canto Blight to find a hacker to get them in. After finding DJ (Benicio del Toro) who steals a ship to get them back we learn that the rich are financing both sides of the war, so who are the good guys and who are bad. Oh and Nien Nunb is still alive.
This is all I’m going to say here as the needs to be something that you need to learn from going to see the film. It has some great action set pieces and I have no clue where the next film will be going JJ Abrams has his work cut out for himself, especially with the death of Carrie Fisher last year. Another thing that I am glad is back is the humor at times The Force Awakens was a bit too serious. All in all it was another Star Wars film and I doubt that I could be that disappointed with one of them, as I am one of the few it seems still find some positives in the prequels which get derided by just about all the fanboys, who are out there complaining about this new trilogy as well. One of the coolest things about the film was the creature the Porgs are there because Skellig Michael has a bunch of puffins on it so the Porgs are there to cover that issue. Also, I am looking forward to what stories Rian Johnson has to tell in his trilogy.
