What the Critics say
Ilan Preskovsky So, yes, there is plenty wrong with The Rise of Skywalker, and it pales especially in comparison to this year’s other major climax of a beloved franchise, Avengers: Endgame (what a miracle that film was), but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t a massively entertaining, emotionally poignant conclusion to this particular story.
Leon van Nierop Wat my betref is dit ‘n bevredigende slot waar J.J. Abrams daarin geslaag het om katvoet tussen die bewonderaars se verwagtinge deur te loop. Ek dit geniet en beskou dit as ‘n waardige afsluiting van die reeks.

Sandie Angulo Chen Action-packed end of iconic series falls short of greatness.
Jim Judy The performances from the returning cast are fine and the production values, effects and score are not-surprisingly top-notch. I just wish the story was as well, but considering Abrams’ insistence over multiple films to put a new coat of paint on the walls where we’ve seen the material before, it’s not surprising that we get more of a rehash rather than something new. Diehard fans might be happy, but I found “Rise of Skywalker” just okay and clearly the lesser of the most recent “Star Wars” films.
