The Star Wars film “Rise of Skywalker” directed by J.J. Abrams, wraps up the epic Star Wars saga by creator George Lucas, but recently has sparked outrage that splits the Star Wars fan base. With a Rotten Tomato score of 58% by critics and a 86% from the audience really shows the division among the Star Wars fan base. During my experience watching the film I enjoyed the breathtaking visual effects and the amazing cinematography. However, the film could’ve improved on pacing and story-line because due to the failure of the last film “The Last Jedi” it didn’t live up to its hype or expectations on how the new trilogy will wrap up the whole saga. Even though with the bad reviews, it’s still a fun movie to enjoy with friends and family who love the Star Wars saga.
