A messy and problematic movie with some good ideas and moments of true spectacle.
Some decent narrative ideas, but lacks any standout moments and ultimately marred by how poorly written Anakin is and how little the central romance works.
The end of angsty Anakin. It is not a glorious end, nor does it make much sense, but it is an end, I guess.
The end of an era; not with a whimper, but also not with a bang. Instead, we got a "good enough" and a feeling that things could have been a lot better if Disney had actually put a plan in place from day one.
A beautifully different entry into the Star Wars franchise which will hopefully see the sequels grow into something unique and much more interesting than might otherwise have been.
A spectacular and surprisingly intimate look at the characters that usually lurk in the background combines to form an excellent addition to the growing franchise.
A lacklustre adventure that serves as a useful set up for the TV series but little more.
A competent fleshing out of the wider Star Wars narrative in a way that gives a lot of much-loved characters room to breath. Nicely builds on the themes of the prequels whilst setting in play the themes of the original trilogy at the same time.
A beautifully directed, brilliantly acted Western set in space and one of the best entries to the Star Wars canon since the original trilogy.
