Rolling up with the kind of intergalactic swagger that gives us a cosmically infuriating phone prank within the first five minutes, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a work of supreme confidence: witty, wild and free to roam unexplored territory.
This is the longest movie in the franchise. It just doesn t feel that way. I haven t been this into a Star Wars picture since the Empire struck back in The Empire Strikes Back.
It may sound like a backhanded compliment, but with so much on the line, Johnson deserves credit for not messing things up.
Still, this is no mere placeholder of a story. Huge, important things happen to characters secondary and primary. Surprises big and small abound.
Loaded with action and satisfying in the ways its loyal audience wants it to be ... generally pleasing even as it sometimes strains to find useful and/or interesting things for some of its characters to do.
