J. J. Abrams, the director of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, tried to bring fans the best so far. He delivered audiences much stuff, from significant variations from its predecessor movies, solely expected character exposes to cameos from fan-loved characters and even intense action sequences. If for some of us, all those facts seem a little bit unorganized, it is indeed like that.
All of those attempts, however, resulted in only one movie that looks more like a mix of intense scenes and plots than a cohesive journey. The film had, though, lots of payoffs dispersed everywhere to make for an exciting and moving experience.
Despite all the characters’ situations appearing to be accurate and real, the overall story will make many audiences confused. Abrams is no stranger in introducing his viewers into a guess-game and, while some significant reveals are somewhat detailed, many seem not to get something.
People have mixed opinion on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is nothing but a two and a half hours of a handful of jargony dialogues that are not so new, whatsoever, being encountered before throughout the saga. In other situations, it felt as the writers found themselves confused on a scene, and they might resort “well, what would the fans want to see happening here?” rather than delivering something useful or never-seen-before.
Also, while we might find ourselves comparing every film to what came directly before it, we should remember that each chapter is solely one-ninth of the full adventure, for better and worse. So, rather than including all eight movies that were released before it, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker selected and picked what parts of the saga it desired to include while entirely ignoring others.
However, missed chances for strong storylines alone, it’s difficult to ignore and deny the effectiveness of much of the movie.
