Speaking as one, I suspect that fan is unlikely to suffer convulsions over The Rise of Skywalker. This film never goes anywhere near the kind of bold swings that Rian Johnson admirably dared to take in 2017’s The Last Jedi. No, Abrams relies on nostalgia and big emotions to deliver the film’s most crowd-pleasing moments. If anything, The Rise of Skywalker is an exercise in pandering. The strain to cram in everything in the hope of pleasing everyone results in an especially bloated first hour.Having said that the film is also a genuinely exhilarating adventure. I’m going with three and a half out of five. Even if you’re not a hardcore fan, there’s enough visual wizardry to keep you entertained for the duration of its running time.

The Star Wars universe guarantees a minimum satisfaction – there’s always some joy in watching the cuddly creatures, the cute robots and characters like the dashing pilot Poe, the charming ex-Stormtrooper Finn and of course the majestic Princess Leia, who returns thanks to the discovery of unused footage that fit the narrative. But The Rise of Skywalker never rises to its destiny. It’s uninspiring and what could be more heart-breaking than that?

JJ Abrams’ The Force Awakens did something completely unexpected: it offered an element of surprise despite being a soft reboot. The novelty in the subsequent films has worn off, but the visual grandeur, the fan service, and the general ‘epic-ness’ remains intact in The Rise of Skywalker, a sequel that offers exactly what you expect, and stubbornly nothing more.

But the reason why this one works (as opposed to the many editions which were overpowered by clanking machines) is because of the emotional connects it creates with us. You feel for our old pal C-3PO (Daniels is the only actor to have appeared in every film of the series) as it yanks hard at its memory banks. You are anxious when the furry Chewbacca (Suotamo) is taken prisoner.

Ratings:3.5/5 Review By: Neil Site: Times Of India

The Rise of Skywalker ultimately plays it so safe that it makes you wonder if it was designed by committee — or a global forum of Star Wars fans who threw everything they love about Star Wars in a blender. It’s too afraid to really commit to anything. Big consequential moments, be it character deaths or narrative revelations, are set up, only to be abandoned. This preference for chickening out remains true across The Rise of Skywalker, as it delivers a sweet family-friendly ending about good triumphing over evil. There’s no problem with that lesson as such, but in context of the film’s events — and a nine-chapter story that began four decades ago — it all feels rather underwhelming. Surely there must be more to the Skywalker saga than this? Evidently not.

Ratings:2.5/5 Review By: Saibal Site: NDTV

Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker drifts back into the known orbit, treads cautiously, and falls back on old sleights. As a result, parts of the film, particularly in the last hour or so, may seem like a rehash of 1983’s Return of the Jedi. Fans are unlikely to complain. However, sticking largely to established norms and mindful of what the Star Wars heroes, villains and their galactic battles – all of which are larger-than-life and have been pop culture-defining phenomena over a period of 40-plus years – mean to the fans, Abrams is unwaveringly focused on carrying the fans along. In the bargain he skips paying attention to letting The Rise Of Skywalker acquire a life and logic of its own.
