Star Wars: The Last Jedi (12A)

Action, Adventure, Fantasy

Having taken her first steps into the Jedi world, Rey joins Luke Skywalker on an adventure with Leia, Finn and Poe that unlocks mysteries of the Force and secrets of the past.

The critical consensus

If The Force Awakens raised a lot of questions, The Last Jedi tackles them head-on, delivering answers that will shock and awe in equal measure. Fun, funny but with emotional heft, this is a mouth-watering set-up for Episode IX and a fitting tribute to Carrie Fisher.

****(*)Ian Freer, Empire Online, 12/12/2017

An excellent middle chapter bursting with wit, wisdom, emotion, shocks, old-fashioned derring-do, state-of-the-art tech, and stonking set-pieces.

*****Jamie Graham, Total Film, 12/12/2017

Overall, the movie still has a few wrinkles but is a fine and Force-full addition to the saga.

****(*)Stefan Kyriazis, Daily Express, 12/12/2017

By Jove, Johnson’s done it!

*****Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies, 12/12/2017

Sure, The Last Jedi can occasionally be too goofy or free-roaming for its own good, but it’s an impossible film to sit in front of and not have a good time.

****(*)Christopher Hooton, The Independent, 12/12/2017

Director Rian Johnson delivers a tidal wave of energy and emotion in the eighth episode of the saga, as Luke, Leia, Finn and Rey step up to meet their destiny.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 12/12/2017

Looper's Rian Johnson delivers the goods with this thrilling addition to the space opera.

****(*)Katherine McLaughlin, The List, 12/12/2017

The multi-stranded plot of The Last Jedi allows writer/director Rian Johnson to ease out the Star Wars veterans to concentrate on the next generation of the franchise, but not before a fitting farewell to Carrie Fisher.

***(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 12/12/2017

Too much is going on and you begin to suspect the story here might be better told in a mini-series than a feature film. As we leap from one character to another, reach a finale and then realise that there are still loose ends to tidy up, the force of the film gradually begins to ebb away.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 13/12/2017

It is a triumph of storytelling for director Rian Johnson.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 15/12/2017

Writer-director Rian Johnson delivers a fine mix of character, storytelling, explosions and something to think about on the bus home.

****(*)Mark Kermode, The Observer, 17/12/2017
