After ten movies of galactic battles, Star Wars: The Last Jedi came to theaters on December 14, 2017. If you are a hard core fan of the Star Wars movies, this is a movie for you. If you are not a fan and your friends are making you go to the movies and watch it, you might get confused with all the details of the film but, don’t worry, you will still enjoy the movie’s intense action scenes like you were playing Call of Duty when you were in middle school. Star Wars The Last Jedi received a lot of positive reviews including a 90% score on Rotten Tomatoes, 7.5/10 on IMDb, and a 9.7/10 on IGN. With the movie’s amazing cast and stunning action scenes, hardcore fans love this movie, while the casual fan finds it all a bit overwhelming, but still enjoy all the details and the lore.

The main character of this film is Rey, played by Daisy Ridley. Rey is learning the ways of the jedi, and has sought out a trainer, the one and only Luke Skywalker, played by Mark Hamill. Luke is the last jedi in the galaxy, so Rey has to become oneto keep the jedi generation alive. Ridley’s performance as Rey is amazing. She managed to make this character very serious and fun to watch. Rey is a great character with a well-written backstory and goals to make her feel very realistic. Luke Skywalker is probably everyone’s favorite character, and Hamill plays him perfectly once again with. While Rey is training with Skywalker, the rebels are struggling with the First Order, who are hunting the rebels down and destroying them. The movie plot is good but there are a lot of details that only true fans will understand.

The action scenes are amazing and breathtaking. The CGI in this movie is perfect; I didn’t see any mistakes. The various settings are beautiful, magnificent, and well-designed. If you want to see an astounding movie, Star War The Last Jedi got has your back.
