Proudly posing with THE EMPRE STRIKES BACK (popularly regarded as the best in this series), writer director Rian Johnson makes sure that the force is with the audience, especially to the fans. STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI fulfills all the expectations and answers the prayers in this deeply satisfying, human and utterly enjoyable triumph.
Honoring the rich legacy with surprise twists twined with emotion and kick ass action, Rian Johnson smartly begins from where THE FORCE AWAKENS left off in 2015, its action time right from the word go with the audience caught in the middle of a battle scene where Poe (Oscar Isaac) and other Resistance pilots are attempting to take out an enemy craft belonging to the First Order. In an amazingly surprising twist, Poe cracks a joke to the First Order leader General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson). Its show time folks!!
Rian Johnson in his supreme confidence makes his intentions clear. Back on the deserted island cliff where Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Luke (Mark Hamill) met in the last episode, Rian Johnson makes STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI out rightly generous to the hungry souls of the franchise and followers of this genre and remarkably makes it enjoyable to those who are not much aware or say fans of Star Wars.
The movie gives the new trilogy characters — Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) sufficient plot and at the same time in a unique nostalgic experience when the characters from Geroge Lucas original trilogy General Leia (the late, legendary Carrie Fisher, the movie is rightly dedicated to her), older Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) appear to reconnect with a surprise.
Having all the familiar elements, Rian Johnson makes this adventure astonishing in its unique ability to balance the known elements – the brilliant CGI with thrills, heartbreak, heroism, villainy, this rejuvenation of the franchise where human emotions have an edge over technology makes it a treat.
Even after having the longest run time (2 and a half hour plus) the audience don’t feel the boredom in this fast paced edition.
On the flip side, Tico’s morality battle doesn’t connect.
Technically a triumph in all departments – cinematography (not shot on digital cameras), music score, editing and sound design STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI is perfectly designed for “A New Hope” in future.
