Rey develops her newly discovered abilities with the guidance of Luke Skywalker, who is unsettled by the strength of her powers. Meanwhile, the Resistance prepares for battle with the First Order.
5 Stars! “though every inch a Star Wars movie, propels the saga forward in unexpected ways…An excellent middle chapter bursting with wit, wisdom, emotion, shocks, old-fashioned derring-do, state-of-the-art tech, and stonking set-pieces” (Total Film)
4 / 4 Stars! “as visceral and visionary as anything in the entire series (and, honestly, in contemporary commercial cinema)…a thrill ride and a great good time, but it’s also about finding inspiration among the embattled and the principled, no matter how outnumbered they or we may feel. In short, it feels like a new hope.” (Boston Globe)
5 Stars! “A triumph of comic irreverence and dramatic purpose, Episode VIII dazzles…a work of supreme confidence: witty, wild and free to roam unexplored territory. If J.J. Abrams’s franchise-rebooting The Force Awakens (2015) was the creation of a boy who lovingly dusted off old toys and put them through their expected poses, its superior sequel is made by a more inventive kid—maybe one with a sideline as his block’s most inspired D&D Dungeon Master” (Time Out)
