'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' Review
A Disappointing Finale to a Beloved Franchise

Rating: ★★

While the final episode in the Skywalker Saga, 'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker', does have impressive practical effects and CGI working together seemlessly, wonderful production design and costumes and enjoyable performances, it's let down by the poor writing, nostalgia-driven score (which is great) lacking any originality, a bland story, abysmal editing and it's reactionary nature to its far better predecessor film, 'The Last Jedi'. Making what should've been a fantastic finale to a 42-year panning series, a disappointing whimper.
