J.J. Abrams returns to make the final entry to the beloved sci-fi action film franchise to put a stop to it. And a stop he puts, one that is with mixed reviews.
Writing credits goes to Chis Terrio and himself and a few other writers. The stars include Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac.
The remaining live members of the resistance face the first order. I mean the final order for the final time when the battle between the Sith and the Jedi comes to an end.
My complete honesty is necessary to make an honest review out of this movie. Although I might be a bit too late to enter into the ranks of those who reviewed it already.
And that honesty is; I am not a big fan of the franchise. That is why it will be interesting to see the point of view of the person who is barely familiar with the characters without any emotional investment. Because reading Rise of the Skywalker review in other places, I encountered highly invested fans liking this movie.
While only a little less than half of the people who watched it disliked it. This first of all proves the movie had a lot of fanservice. Fan servicing is one aspect of the movie that even though many people seem to dislike it. They will come out impressed and liking the movie.
The scattered story and the urge to cover all the plot holes they left open is probably too much for anyone movie to handle. Yet they tried to do that very impossible thing which almost ruined the whole movie.
Copying off what worked before was as obvious as trying to bring the finale to the journey of all characters.
Rise of the Skywalker Review
Even the ending seems quite similar to the other sci-fi movie which broke the billion-dollar mark and became the highest-grossing movie of all time.
Having a structure and following it is one thing. While repeating what was successful in previous movies is not. The filmmakers were obviously too afraid to disappoint the fans and it easily shows in the movie.
In a Rise of the Skywalker review, It would be difficult to call it poorly directed but even harder to say it was good. While the acting is good, the writing is what disengages the movie.
In a movie like this where you have strong characters and motivations and their arcs mus be perfect. The rise of the Skywalker remains way behind.
What they could do better, in my humble opinion. Finn fights the captain two times and loses in both, actually gets rescued the second time.
But what they should’ve done; is to perhaps make that captain his old captain because of whom he left the empire. And they are long-term rivals. When they fight the first time, he is saved because he can’t’ defeat him. However, throughout the runtime of the movie. He could train or get better and defeat him, finally completing his character arc.
In terms of runtime, I’d argue it would even save time than take more. If they went the make justice route.
In short, it was a movie that heavily focused on making their fans happy and did the service that even some of them hated.
However, from the cinematic design standpoint, Rise of the Skywalker review agrees it had some cool action scenes and visuals, and scope of galactic size wars. Except for even that kind of reminded me of the other successful movie which I have mentioned right above.
To Sum it up
If you read the Eli movie review, don’t jump into thinking OnreplayTV does reviews of some of the worst movies only like the Rise of the Skywalker review. More reviews of the good and best movies are coming soon.
Because, the list has some of the best-animated movies and shows of all time, with some of the greatest stories and character arcs, all of which Rise of the Skywalker badly failed at.
After all, what is the point of resurrecting a character to have him die again for no reason?
Couldn’t they find a better villain?
They shamelessly copied many things from, I can’t keep saying another sci-fi successful movie anymore! It is the Avengers end game.
They should’ve brazenly copied with the villain as well, this at least would make the movie better.
