Review: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker – How is the Biggest Pop Culture Saga Completed?
The latest trilogy from the cult world of Star Wars has both opponents and followers. she first part He was largely convinced that it was a nostalgic security bet, but it meant more New Hope, he second part divided the fandom into two camps.
Mainly because it was all too different and maybe foolish and difficult for many to overcome. Others see her as the sequel to the Star Wars episode that has been rated the best so far – The Empire Strikes Back, I belong to a camp that would say very explicitly: “You just had a ball.” The rise of Skywalker then it should be a derivative of both. His job is not only to complete the trilogy and answer any questions that may arise, but also to end the story of the Skywalker family that frames the series. How is J.J. Abrams has?
As expected. Abram’s films are generally what his seventh episode was. The well-made films that you can rely on do not take any great risks and fit in with dignity and taste in the fictional world. But that’s all. I have never seen anything of him – figuratively speaking; sat on his ass, It just seems like a clever routine to me. After leaving Rian Johnson in Star Wars with the eighth episode, it was up to him to put a tasty point behind it. And it did. What you can do most with the new Star Wars is stored under the carpet or summarized. There is a negative character that is a common denominator outside the Skywalker name, or a gray eminence of all episodes. Given his iconic laugh in the trailer and the portrait on the posters, it is probably not surprising that it is Darth Sidious, also known as Palpatine.
What I regret a bit about the new films is that although the characters from the original saga have appeared here, the old acquaintances have never all met and their participation is not as important as the new characters, all for them Narrative are more important.
This is also the case here (of course, we can tick off Lando Calrissian, who finally got rid of it here), but as is apparent from the cast and news about the shooting, Leia is easily pushed into the background by her actress Carrie Fisher. Fortunately, the filmmakers have managed to make good use of their scenes, so we don’t lose them. Of course, the last part of the SW is not only about the First Order and the rebels, but also about the great final struggle of both sides of the power, which will culminate in the presence of the greatest Sith. I was afraid that Abrams would not be able to close the questions (and perhaps the most important ones) with myself, but with Johnson, I was unnecessarily afraid.
The journey of the new heroes may come to an end, but at a decent pace, with a calming gradation and a gradient in which the most distinctive characters of the trilogy, of course, Rey and Kylo Ren, naturally mature. Here’s what was outlined in the previous episode fully crystallized. At the same time, after this film, you can pretty well understand why Rey is so good at everything (including the use of power). At this point, I have to say that I was satisfied with the presence of the Knights of Reno, although they deserved a greater involvement in the conspiracy, which is only hinted at here.
The new Star Wars cannot deny great dynamism. There is always something going on. Add to this imaginative action and different locations to see that there is definitely something to see. The plot is absolutely perfect and flawless from a visual point of view (nevertheless, this and the expensive film was expected differently), but something is missing.
Something that made Star Wars special. Despite its efficiency, I missed a fateful moment that would impress me. The transformation of some characters then takes place too quickly, the answer to a number of questions is answered in a few sentences, while others and the eye of clearly defined laws are changed directly. Some of the characters that were either interesting or have had a lot of space for the last time are completely late and only flicker here.
But it’s just about paying for the different approaches of the two directors. But if something is true, there was no point in evaluating the films as a whole before they were released. Just as you didn’t know much more about Palpatine after the original trilogy, we don’t know some of the characters here. In addition, many things that appeared essential are either forgotten or ignored.
The rise of Skywalker The most irritating thing about the legs is the short-lived continuity of its predecessors, sometimes excessive leaps in the plot and at the same time the understandable effort of its makers to bet rather than make waves.
However, it can be rejected that he has done enough The last of the Jedi. That’s enough to give the saga finale a new one. Instead, despite mixing a large number of new characters, we focus on the main young protagonists and close the saga, which doesn’t have much new.
At least in the basic phrases, where there are surprising but quite pleasant answers. What Johnson didn’t want to give the fans, Abrams served them on a plate that might be too silver. Still, the new Star Wars are a bad movie. They are good and tasty – they end. So if it’s a brand that continues to exist, you can even say that. In particular, I think the end of the entire film is the best that this trilogy has offered. Beautiful return to the roots and closing of the big circle, which ultimately gives the subtitle of this part meaning and importance.
It is a good film, but nothing revolutionary or ingenious. Just a decent and satisfying spectacle that avoids unnecessary clichés and works where it should. Which is not enough. Don’t expect a revolution, just a fun Star Wars movie. And you won’t be disappointed. Especially if you like the original saga …
