Star wars continues the story of Star wars IV. I found the beginning too slow and felt like I was waiting for the action to start, but, when it did those were excellent. And I’m still in love with the robots.
I also believe Chewbacca is the only one who had his head screwed on straight in this film. (CP30 certainly didn’t! Hahahaha…cough)
I loved the last 45 minutes of this film. I felt I was finally seeing some of the plot unravel and loved the pace of that weaved with action scenes. And, of course, the music was epic throughout.
The last half of this film was amazing, and, woah, that ending! It was worth it for all that happened in the final scenes. I will have to watch the next film because I need to find out what happened.
I was pondering on why I felt unenthusiastic and disconnected from the protagonist’s plight and, for me, it’s doesn’t show me well enough why the bad guys are the bad guys. I don’t see how it affects the rest of the universe.
To sum up, slow start, epic ending, great cast of characters, stingy with plot reveals
Was it worth the watch? Yes
Would I re-watch? No
