Goofs

Princess Leia is so powerful with the force that she can fly through space like Superman, yet when the rebels are trapped they must rely on Rey's ability to remove the rocks even though Leia is with them. Clarification: While The Empire Strikes Back established that the weight of the object being moved is irrelevant to use of the Force, it has also established that the perceived weight of objects creates a psychological barrier to anyone untrained in use of the Force. The number of objects and the ability to see an object does have an impact on the ease with which the Force can be used to move things. Moving one object one direction in a weightless, frictionless environment is a relatively rudimentary use of the Force, while simultaneously controlling the movement of several dozen multi-ton objects, some of which aren't visible to the force-user in question is drastically more difficult. Also, one instance instinctive use of the Force under extreme physical duress is not the same as continuous, willful use of the Force. See more »

Star Wars: The Last Hope
24 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

Disney, You should be proud of Yourself - this blatant, mindless and disgusting flick of Yours led me to write my first IMDB review and receive 1/10 rating.

You've done the impossible: You've almost killed a very lucrative franchise, with loyal fanbase, with developed Universe, with likable characters that were shining during last 30 years.

You know, I've thought that Episodes I-II were just childish, poorly written and bad. Jar Jar Binks, silly racing scenes just for arcade games, all of that. But with Episode 8 You've showed us:

We do not care about SW legacy (despite what our PR guys are telling You). All we want is money. We will put undeveloped screenplay to production, even with plot holes at size of the Death Star.

We were unable to produce new likable characters the viewer can be linked to and accept them as a new "trinity". We will not do character development - only scream and tears on forced drama moments. Grown-ups will act as children during a school show. Damn, we will even fail with R2-D2 and C-3PO moments.

We will badly utilize beloved characters and sentence them to the very stupid deaths because we do no know, how to use them properly.

Yes, looks like "Rogue One" was exception, not the rule.

Yes, we will hint You with the main villain during Episode 7, but do not think about some backstory - You will receive none.

We will insert shirtless scene just because we can. Why not?

We will buy critics or force them to public "excellent" reviews.

Even visuals and space battles are not so enjoyable anymore. Bombers with bombs a-la World War II? Seriously? X-Wing vs Dreadnought? Sometimes enough stupidity is enough. This is exactly Your case.

You see, Disney, if even such a good guy as Mark Hamill himself being vocal about how poorly his character was handled in the movie - this is not just a bell ringing, this is a death bell obviously.
