    Last I checked it had 93% on Rotten Tomatoes. Surprised to here it’s getting any bad reviews. The director behind it directed a few outstanding episodes of Breaking Bad and “Looper”, which was a bad ass movie.

    It's 86 on metacritic too, so the reviews arent mixed, they've been pretty good...


    Still, IMO, it was merely ok. Better than Force Awakens, but i find the whole franchise overrated. 6.5/10

    Reviewers said Johnson did fine but it's Disney who is holding it back.

    I haven't read a review saying it was brutal but a few basically saying it was incomplete.

    Whatever. I'll see it before the end of the year with my nephew (who really liked it)

    its 56% from fan reviews on RT, currently the lowest rated of ALL Star Wars movies including prequels.

    the 93% is critics, and there is a lot of suspicion about those numbers. The fans are shelling it.

    I’ll see it but I’m not holding out hope that it will be on the level of ESB or Rogue One (which was out****ingstanding).

    its middling in my opinion. I rate them by number...

    5 4 6 7 8 3 1 2

    Don't read RT reviews because they have all the spoilers obviously

    I was unexpectedly pleased with how good Rogue One was.

    Not to sound like an old fogey but any passion for making quality films seems to have died off years ago. Everything now is just a cash grab . . . especially when corporate scum like Disney gets their slimy hands on something.

    It carried the story over from 7 pretty well, not as good as rouge one but much better than 7, the story was a lot better than most sw films except empire, Disney most def. sucks, but this was a good film for me

    The reviewers are raving about it. I think that Star Wars fandom is very divided. Personally I thought the movie was a jumbled mess aside from Rey, Luke and Kylo Ren. Enjoyable like any Star Wars but average at best, prequel level at worst.

    JJ Abrams has a hell of a job before him in picking up the pieces from TLJ.

    I loved but I love them all. Those movies bring me back to when I was a kitten.
    Have an open mind and enjoy it. There is plenty of negativity already in the real world.

    Liked it more after a second watch.

    I think some of the major issues fans had with certain Rey and Snoke plot points are going to be resolved in the third movie.

    Luke and Kylo saved the movie for me, but I'm rare in that I really like Kylo.

    The movie definitely suffered from having too many storylines in the first two acts. That and the Oscar hype had me expecting something more.

    A little too heavy on the humor sometimes

    I am a die hard SW fan. I thought it was "ok". My oldest son thought it sucked(and he loves Star wars) We left the theater talking about how awesome Rogue One was and this latest movie left something to be desired. I just dont think the new characters have any where near the same draw as the old characters which we most of us loved. But with that being said, it is always nice to return the the Star Wars realm since it brings me back to my childhood.
