From the very earliest scenes of the film, when Rey and Luke's long-awaited meeting is finally realised, to an emotional final clash between Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and our heroes, The Last Jedi zigs where you expect it to zag, setting up predictable beats only to blast them away at the last moment. Kylo Ren begins to grow here, becoming increasingly more unpredictable and hard to read over the course of the film. "The sequence looks like something out of the Star Wars prequels, which isn't necessarily an insult as the prequels had an exceptional design, it's just a very different aesthetic from the original trilogy palette", SlashFilm's Peter Sciretta explains. The movie now stands at a 93 percent fresh rating from 137 counted critics, which is the exact same score "The Force Awakens" received in 2015. Of course, given the unfortunate death of Carrie Fisher (General Leia Organa) in 2016, these moments give her character even more impact.
Above all else, the return of Hamill'sLuke Skywalker is a darker, more challenging storyline than many would have expected, right up until the film's later moments. "If 2015's The Force Awakens bent over backward to be like the original movies, The Last Jedi does the same to buck your expectations", GameSpot's Michael Rougeau says in our The Last Jedi review.

By the film's conclusion, I was genuinely left with next to no idea about where the franchise will go next in 2019's Episode IX and beyond - but I'm excited to see what's coming. So too does Luke Skywalker, disillusioned and curmudgeonly on the planet Ahch-To, and fixed on placing his Jedi past behind him. It supplies us with all the things we expect - nay, demand - in a Star Wars movie, and manages to surprise us by revealing that this fictional universe, in which we've already clocked so many hours, can still surprise us. Everyone also knew that Luke was going to be in the movie. The bad guys were delivered a stinging blow in The Force Awakens, but with their seemingly endless resources remaining largely unbowed.
