Star Wars-The Last Jedi Movie Review: The Force is Strong With This One

It's time for the force to assemble again as the eight chapter from the galaxy far far away reaches the cinema hall. Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been one of the most awaited films of the year, which takes forward the events from seventh chapter Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Second, in series from the rebooted trilogy, the film focuses on Rey and her training from Luke Skywalker himself, who is on a self-exile, following Kylo Ren's swap into the dark side.

The film also marks the last appearance of late Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) as she returns as the leader of the Resistance, now finds itself one of the few remaining bulwarks against the First Order in the wake of the New Republic’s decimation in The Force Awakens.

With new characters on board and on a mission to save the galaxy from the dark force, it'll be interesting to see what Last Jedi has in store. Will it be able to follow up on Force Awakens' success? Will the new film justify Rey's power? Is she the last Jedi to walk the galaxy? Will Kylo Ren be saved or will he follow his grandfather Darth Vader's footsteps? Sameeksha from News18 is inside the theatre to get all the answers.

In this interview with Rajeev Masand recorded in Tokyo, Mark Hamill discusses the return of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and as a result his own return to the Star Wars universe.

Luke Skywalker is finally back in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, precisely one film later than we all thought he would be. But The Last Jedi isn’t just about returning characters, it’s also expanding the cast of the new trilogy in some important ways.

The question going into The Last Jedi isn’t whether the First Order will strike back but what the scope of its vengeance will be. The villains are smarting from defeat, but they, led by the sinister Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis), will certainly have a plan to strike back with a fury. Everyone — including the Resistance and Organa — knows that this is coming, regardless of whether they’re prepared.

Star Wars is, of course, about individual journeys, awakenings, and growing up. But those all happen in the context of a bigger galactic struggle.

In The Force Awakens, we learned that after the galactic civil war some 30 years ago — which served as the basis for the first Star Wars trilogy — the villainous First Order has risen up and wants to get rid of the democratic state currently known as the New Republic. Wary of an all-out war and not fully aware of the threat that the First Order presents, the New Republic is discreetly supporting the Resistance, led by General Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher).
