Goofs

During the slow-mo chase, the rebels lost 2 or 3 support ships that ran out of fuel. It is established that the fuel for sub-light engines vs light-speed engines is separate. So why didn't they send all the support ships at the star destroyers at light speed to destroy them. The last person on board was going to die anyhow. Or why didn't the last capital ship head to the same planet to cover the shuttle retreat, there by lending cover to the shuttles? Clarification: The crews of the Ninka and the medical support ship are shown being evacuated to the Raddus before they run out of fuel, leaving them empty by the time they are destroyed. Other Star Wars media has established that jumping to hyperspace through a solid object is incredibly dangerous to any object in the vicinity, including friendly ships, due to hyper-accelerated shrapnel and the complex physics of hyperspace. Because Holdo had a plan to stealthily land on the planet Crait, which she had presumably communicated to other officers, there was at the time no need to try such a potentially disastrous maneuver, Holdo only took such a risk when the threat of total annihilation was imminent. The evacuation shuttles were already far away from the Raddus when the First Order opened fire on them, making it impossible for the Raddus - a larger, less maneuverable ship with virtually no fuel left - to have reached the shuttles before they were wiped out.

Quotes

Snoke: [Rey's restrains are undone] Come closer child. So much strength. Darkness rises and light to meet it. I warned my young apprentice that as he grew stronger, his equal in the light would rise.
[uses the force to take Rey's lightsaber]
Snoke: Skywalker...
[laughs]
Snoke: I assumed, wrongly. Closer I said.
[uses the force to slowly move Rey toward him]
Rey: You underestimate Skywalker and Ben Solo and me. It will be your downfall.
Snoke: Oh. Have you seen something? A weakness... in my apprentice... is that why you came?

Dumbest plot in a long, long time
21 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

I can't really get into what's bad with this movie without dropping a ton of spoilers, but let me put it this way: a friend of mine went to see this before I did, and when I asked him how it was he hesitated, then said "it's just a superhero series now". He was more right than I ever could have known.

The plot is stupid and is full of moments where my friends and I looked at each other and said "wait, what?". There are sequences in this movie that simply do not need to exist and provide literally nothing to the story. The technology, previously something I always thought was neat about Star Wars, is genuinely dumb and makes zero sense (why do big laser bolts in space arc like artillery?). I am ashamed to have paid money for this and as a long-time Star Wars fan it hurts to see just how dead the franchise I love really is.

All that said, the special effects look and sound great, and it was fun to see Mark Hamill acting again. Other than that this movie is a disgrace not just to the franchise but to anyone with a brain. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
