Star Wars: The Last Jedi was released Friday to mixed-but-generally-positive review among The Sun’s Arts and Entertainment Staff. Several staff members contributed short reviews, and here are the main points:
The film played along with the established Star Wars plots and themes, but added some originality that was lacking in The Force Awakens. Mark Hamill’s Luke was more impressive than ever. Some of the character development and one of the subplots fell short. The battle scenes, lightsaber fights, and new planets met the necessary standards of excellence.
