Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker came out at the end of last year and people still can’t talking about it, however, not really for the right reasons.
J.J. Abrams’ film, rather than unifying all Star Wars fans after what happened with Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi (one of the best Star Wars films in my opinion), Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker created even more division.
Some Star Wars fans loved it, others really didn’t like it, and the critics weren’t overly kind to the final movie in this latest Star Wars trilogy.
I gave it a solid 7.5 out of 10 in my review as I thought it was a lot of fun but has its problems.
Honestly, I think my review is fair to the movie and I tried to explain why I both liked it and thought it was a bit of a misfire.
Critics really didn’t think much of Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker
All in all, I had a good time with the film at the cinema, yet some critics really didn’t enjoy it and it looks like they took to the popular reviews aggregator website, Rotten Tomatoes, and gave it terrible reviews.
It’s since been revealed that Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker is now the lowest-rated Star Wars movie on the website as far as the critical consensus is concerned.
That includes the likes of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, Star Wars: Episode II – Attack Of The Clones and Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge Of The Sith.
In all honestly, Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker isn’t the worst Star Wars film ever made. That honour has to go to one of the prequel movies, and my vote would go to Attack of the Clones.
However, critics really didn’t seem to take to this movie which now stands at 52%.
