General Hux, leader of the nefarious First Order, is determined to destroy the rebels, headed by the fearsome Rey. To help in the fight, Rey tries to persuade Jedi master Luke Skywalker to abandon his self-exile and rejoin the rebels and their resistance. Meanwhile, to win this fight, the hotheaded Poe Dameron proposes additional firepower. General Leia feels Poe’s plan is insufficient. Dameron and his allies are not deterred and conceive of another strategy to defeat the First Order. It fails. Luke does eventually return to help the Resistance. In a confrontation with Kylo, of the First Order, the aging Luke is wounded. Leia tells the rebels that the Resistance will rise again.

Director Rian Johnson delivers a tidal wave of energy and emotion in this saga. An old hope. A new realism. An old anxiety. A new feeling that the Force might be used to channel erotic telepathy, and long-distance evil seduction. The excitingly and gigantically proportioned eighth film in the Star Wars saga offers all of these.Peter Bradshaw
THE LAST JEDI is arguably the most original and surprising entry in the series to date. The film is the real deal: a bold, risky venture unafraid to tell its own story, freed from the weight of nostalgia and formula.Christopher Machell
