An image from Star Wars: The Last Jedi

It’s the Star Wars film that’s caused the most controversy and it’s also one of the highest grossing – but what will you think of it?

The Last Jedi picks up immediately after the events of The Force Awakens, following Rey as she seeks the help of the previously missing Luke Skywalker (played at a career best by Mark Hamill). Whatever Mr Hamill might have to say about his role, there’s no denying that he plays a brilliant part and his execution of Skywalker in this film is fantastic. Indeed, all of the actors, in particular Daisy Ridley as Rey and Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, excel in this sequel.

The film also follows the progression of Poe Dameron, the cock-sure pilot played by Oscar Isaac as the Resistance is chased relentlessly by the First Order, butting heads with a new character named Admiral Holdo (Laura Dern). After the passing of Carrie Fisher, many of the scenes with the Resistance are emotional and Carrie plays each of her scenes with grace and energy. Be warned: This film may make you cry if you’re a fan of the franchise. Among the other new characters is Rose, played by Kelly Marie Tran, who teams up with Finn in an attempt to save the Resistance.

It’s a film with a lot of development for its main trio of characters, and for the franchise itself, making it an unmissable movie!
