Movie Review : Star Wars Skywalker

I've said this before but it's worth repeating Star Wars includes a special place in my heart the opening scroll is one of my earliest and most distinctive movie memories I remember watching it as a kid for the primary time in an exceedingly movie theater and thinking that the planet would never be the identical again I wasn't wrong over 42 years and eight films the saga has become an outsize cultural entity with a key place in movie history and a vice-like grip on our collective imagination with the increase of Skywalker the story that filmmaker started on May 25th 1977 finally comes to an end it's as director JJ Abrams said the trilogy of trilogies the increase of Skywalker had to be the final word grand finale sadly the film is far less within the force awakens' Abrams created a seamless blend of nostalgia and newness he was ready to inventively remind us of everything we've loved in these stories and yet take them into a replacement direction but in the rise of Skywalker Abrams an oscar-winning co-writer Chris Terrio are unable to seek out the sweet spot instead the film looks like a fatigue rehash designed to cater to everyone once more the brave resistance warriors go up against seemingly insurmountable odds embodied by the gargantuan fleet of the evil final order characters we both loved and been terrified by make a comeback their cameos and journeys to exotic planets to seek out a Sith artifact of course the longer term of the galaxy is at stake we're repeatedly told if this mission fails it had been all for nothing the plot is frantically busy and yet little feels urgent sever plot twists are convenient instead of organic don't ask questions on how or why something happens because the logic is decidedly lacks and this is often alittle detail but I never understood why villains laugh while unfolding their nefarious plans surely in other galaxies this cliche doesn't exist what holds up other characters of Rey and kylo Ren fierce fabulous warriors were fighting forces external and internal the struggle between good and evil plays are both in the sprawling galaxy and in their hearts Daisy Ridley and Adam driver are terrific that gives the film it's emotional call building on what director Rian Johnson started within the last Jedi Abrams creates a deep sexually provocative bond between them in one scene they're fighting each other on top of the wreck of a spaceship while giant waves all around them it's beautiful it is also sexy almost as though the lightsabre duel was some sort of foreplay visually the increase of Skywalker may be a marvel the cinematography is by Dan Mendel and also the production design by ricotta and Kevin Jenkins the colors planets and showdowns between these tiny insect-like spaceship and massive hulking ones are all wonderous the unforgettable soundtrack by John Williams also lifts the fabric in places it is the only thing infusing energy into the convoluted narrative but ultimately the demanding length of 142 minutes exposes the storytelling which remains serviceable but hardly inventive or singular there just isn't enough voice or heart the Star Wars universe guarantees a minimum satisfaction there's always some joy in watching the cuddly creatures the lovable robots and characters just like the dashing pilot Poe the charming ex stormtrooper Finn and of course the majestic Princess Leia who returns because of the invention of unused footage that fit the narrative but the increase of Skywalker never rises to its destiny its uninspiring and what could be more heartbreaking than that for more reviews like this buy film companion and do not forget to test out our website film companion dot in check out this really interesting article we've done of the most effective posters of the last decade
