Movie Review: Star Wars – The Last Jedi
By Keegan Beck
During winter break the entertaining saga returned to the theaters. On December 15, 2017, Star Wars: The Last Jedi made its debut around the country. The saga continues with the First Order reigns having decimated the peaceful Republic. Supreme Leader General Snoke now deploys his legions to seize military control of the galaxy. The only ones that are standing up against the rising tyranny, First Order is General Leia Organa’s band of resistance fighters. The resistances have hope that Jedi Luke Skywalker will return and restore a spark of hope to the fight.
The heroine, Rey, discovers herself and finds out that she is way more than some person from the desert planet Jakku. While trying to convince Skywalker to come help the resistance fight the first order, Skywalker is uncertain about Rey’s powers.
“The rebellion is reborn today. The war is just the beginning. And I will not be the Last Jedi.” – Luke Skywalker
The Last Jedi was a very interesting and filled with action and adventure. With Disney buying the rights to Star Wars, I thought I was going in to see a Disney made film but instead it was action-packed and an incredible story. The director, Rian Johnson, and the producer, J.J Abrams, put together a great film and understood the meaning behind being a Jedi. There were a lot fans that were really happy about the film and had those “called it” moments, but I really enjoyed the film. They gave more information about different characters in this film, and it kept me very focused and interested the whole time.
I would recommend this movie to everyone far far away from different planets and galaxies to go see Star Wars: The Last Jedi in theaters. And may the force be with all of you.
