I am not the only one who thinks that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is a mess. In fact, there are many people who share this opinion. The story does not make any sense and it's easily the worst movie in the trilogy. Rey is a Mary Sue character who can do no wrong, and Finn is reduced to nothing more than comic relief. Disney failed audiences with this movie, and it's a shame because Star Wars is such an iconic franchise.
If you're a fan of the Star Wars franchise, then I'm sure you were looking forward to this movie as much as I was. But unfortunately, it just didn't live up to the hype. In fact, it was quite the opposite. So if you're thinking about seeing it, my advice would be to save your money and watch something else instead. If you have Disney Plus, watch some other stuff instead.
There are many problems with the story, the characters, and the overall direction of the trilogy. Rey is a Mary Sue character who can do no wrong. She is given all of the power and never has to work for anything. This is not only unrealistic, but it's insulting to strong female characters everywhere.
The other characters are also poorly written and lack any depth or development. Finn was a potential star of the trilogy, but he was pushed to the side in favor of Rey. That's a whole other log.
Poe Dameron could have been an interesting character, but he was reduced to a comic relief sidekick and he was really corny. It was not a good use of such a strong character actor as Oscar Isaac.
Kylo Ren is perhaps the most disappointing character of all. He had so much potential as a well-rounded villain, but he was ultimately reduced to a one-dimensional bad guy. Instead of a vilain who was in line with the SIth, we have a Solo who is just acting out because he hates "daddy."
The overall story of the trilogy is also a mess. It's disjointed, nonsensical, and leaves many plot holes. The ending is particularly disappointing and feels like a cop-out. It's clear that Disney failed Star Wars audiences with this trilogy. They took a beloved franchise and turned it into a cheap cash grab. It's a shame because there was so much potential for this trilogy to be great. Hopefully, Disney will learn from their mistakes and do better next time. I doubt it.
