Continued Luke and Rey? He literally killed Luke and the character he was. The Force Awakens didn't make it clear that Rey is no one. That's ridiculous. And how the hell does Rey become a strong Jedi after a weekend trip to visit Luke.
Read this review on IMDB, which sums it up pretty well:
"Disney strikes back:
Congrats for killing another franchise. The movie was horribly edited, half of the things happening on screen are literally pointless and theres NO character development whatsoever. Rey becomes a jedi after a 15 min meditation session with Luke, Kylo kills Snoke (wich was supposed to be stronger than vader and sidious) and this somehow doesnt change anything AT ALL. But hey, the 2.5h of screentime are filled with poe doing poe things, finn and a forgettable chinese partner going to the forgettable space-las vegas and doing pointless things that have nothing to do with the plot except giving benicio del toro some money, and leia somehow flying in space. Oh also dont expect explanations for the multple questions you may have had after seeing TFA. 13/12/2017 is the day Star Wars died, good job mickey mouse."
Um first of all
Who are you to say who luke is? You know rian johnson wrote his story under the approval of Kathleen Kennedy (who’s been an executive at lucasfilm since The 80s) right? You do also realize that jj Abrams writer of the force awakens loved rian Johnson’s script so much he said he wished he could direct it himself right?
So many people crying about this movie making blanket statements like the ones you’re making. This wasn’t luke
And who was luke. Are you going to sit here and pretend that you know how luke would react after being entrusted with his sister and best friends son who would proceed to turn dark and murder his entire school of young jedi
Or are you saying you think luke would never have a brush with the dark? Which he did clearly in return of the Jedi before doing exactly what he did in last jedi overcoming it
Killed luke and who he was? Lol. Luke opened a new temple to train jedi, saw his own blood turn dark and murder them all, learned through years of studying that the jedi were responsible for not stopping the rise of the empire and decided he would no longer perpetuate the lie of the jedi as he saw it
What a unique perspective on a character. What added depth. I’m sorry rian johnson didn’t go the expected route.
And yes. Jj Abrams himself made it very clear in the force awakens that Rey was no one. Maz says your story isn’t in your past but what lies in front of you. Are you unable to see what that means.
How did Rey become a jedi in one weekend? How did luke become ready to face Vader in a similar time frame. You act like luke was on dagobah for years
Not to mention who said Rey is a jedi? Luke said He won’t be the last jedi. That doesn’t make Rey already a jedi. She’s powerful in the force. Why? Because she’s Kylo Rens counterpart which is made very clear in the movie but it doesn’t mean she has a full handle on her powers.
Also that review is incredibly idiotic. First of all the woman running lucasfilm has been a higher up at lucasfilm since the 80s. Secondly Disney doesn’t have much to do with their sub companies. Thirdly no character development? Lol half the crap people complain about the movie is character development that they disagree with and somehow therefore becomes no character development? Nonsensical
Kylo ren goes from wanting to bring back Vader to wanting to kill the past, murders his master and becomes the supreme leader of the first order. Oh ya DEFINITELY where he left off
Luke goes from exile to sparking the entire resistance, finding hope again, and putting forth the greatest display of force power ever. Do people watch movies correctly. Kylo says to Rey that her connecting them through the force would kill her. Luke projects himself across the entire galaxy from ach to which if you remember (probably don’t) is on the outer regions. So he essentially does the most powerful thing ever done through the force by far. He literally transports his energy to another planet. It’s laughable.
Snoke was powerful? Sure he was. And yet kylo killed him. What does that say about kylo? Kylo is a Skywalker, with all body parts in tact (only one outside of Leia) which if you know means the force is inherently stronger with him as it flows through his entire body. He allows snoke to read his thoughts knowing snoke to do this before and simultaneously uses that against him just like snoke did to Rey
