Goofs

Characters in the movie don't question the return of Palpatine much, but they seem strangely even more unfazed with the revelation that he had a son, even though it had never been mentioned or hinted at in any way previously. See more »

Like a two hour long trailer for some epic saga
19 December 2019 | by dpasaricSee all my reviews

I am a life long Star Wars fan and this was the first time I came out disappointed. And I am not picky, I was mostly happy even with the last two movies, but this one is the worst Star Wars movie yet.

It's hollow, unnecessary hectic, without soul and the good old Star Wars magic! And it's not that I am "old fashioned", I love the Mandalorian as a new production, so it's not about "generation gap", it's about the rhythm of the movie, it's like you are dropped in a two hour long trailer for some epic saga! You get tired, characters are like pawns on the table, there was no time for build up of any feelings, mood, everything happens just like on a factory assembly line.
