Saw it yesterday in Germany. Overall i liked it, but definitely i have to see it a second time though.
REY - Finally the character had the likeable TFA heartbeat again. She was kind of dull in TLJ.
KYLO - The scene with his father was great. His ending was very good.
FORCE POWERS - It was nice to see Force Healing and the Force Teleportation/Beaming of objects. One of the few good things that TLJ invented. I liked how that force power was expanded.
RICHARD E. GRANT - That guy was born to be an imperial officer. More menacing than General Hux.
C3PO - He had a lot to do and a lot to say. Unexpected, and i liked that.
LUKE CATCHES THE LIGHT SABER - Nice jab at TLJ. Deservedly so.
PALPATINE - His reason to be alive would have been more acceptable as a Force Ghost. But again, JJ needed a big baddy because TLJ dumped Snoke for no reason. So, Palpatine being here is TLJ’ fault, not TROS’.
KNIGHTS OF REN - Suffered from Darth Maul syndrome. They looked cool in TFA during the Reys force vision. In broad daylight on Pasana they looked goofy with all their butcher kind of weapons. But again, TLJ missed to introduce them properly, so there is no time in TROS to deal with them more in detail. So, Knights of Ren are a lackluster is TLJ’ fault, not TROS’.
LUKES WIG - Must have been the same dudes work who did Ewans wig in AOTC.
THE BEGINNING OF THE MOVIE - Way too rushed and too fast. No build up or tension.
Rogue One is redundant. Just play the first mission of DARK FORCES.
Being surrounded by yes men: the hallmark of a corrupt leader.
