Is it a parody?
14 December 2017 | by MoodyHankSee all my reviews

There are some well written and comprehensive reviews on here already so I won't waste your time in the details.

Essentially, the entire first half of The Last Jedi feels like a Star Wars parody. Instead of the odd moment of humour every now and again, every scene AND character is a comedian in TLJ. It's a crap gag a minute. And some of the great work done The Force Awakens to re-energise the franchise was just completely undone. You know that incredibly significant and poignant moment at the end of TFA as Rey hands the lightsabre to Luke? Just wait and see what happens next.

I've rated it 4 stars because the second half of the film does pick up but by then the damage is done. TLJ is a huge misstep in the franchise.
