For me Star wars have allways been about good storytelling.
The original trilogy had a simple but strong and surprising story.
The prequels had their faults but they still told a great story about how evil could rise to power under the nose of the good guys.
The story in the rise of skywalker, is not existing. It just chaos. People running around doing stuff in a pace which seems to be an attempt to hide an incredible high amount of plot holes and inconsistencies. Even the ideas which could have been awesome fall flat due to the lack of an overall structure in the story and what seems to be a fear of surprising the fans.
The use of the force and the depiction of the power structure in the galaxy, is so vague and not in line with what was established in the previous movies, that it almost break the logic of the franchise.
If you just want a movie with stunning visuals, high amount of fan service and where everything happens as you predicted, then the rise of skywalker may be a good star wars movie.
I liked the music and the visuals, but the lack of good storytelling and respect for ALL the previous movies mad me sad.
