    I took the casino bit and the kid at the end as laying the foundations for a future storyline.

    I liked it. Few quips that were reminiscent of iv, v and vi.... certainly not the best, but I enjoyed it all the same...

    Dragged along to pictures last night. Would give it 4/10, was watchable enough but seems like it's been done before. PG rating limits badly what they can show therefore for adults it's not edgy enough.

    Benicio del Toro's brief appearance was welcome if a bit irrelevant. Snoak's demise was the best part.

    The critics have loved it, or the ones that I've seen on the various media outlets have, I'll wait till March next year and watch it on Sky movies.
    If you've been smoking something you shouldn't and you see something that walks like a duck, sounds like a duck and looks like a duck, then it's probably a dog or a bag of peas.

    Rotten Tomatoes has the critics rating at 93%, while the Audience rating is sitting at 56%. Likewise Metacritic has the Audience rating down at 4.9/10, while the critics are rating it at 86/100.

    Something clearly not adding up, but I certainly wouldnt believe everything I read from the critics, many of whom I guess are slightly wary of going against Disney (aka the Empire!)

    Agree with Benicio Del Toro, thought he was good if a little underused.

    Not sure about killing off Snoke, but the subsequent scrap in the throne room was great and one of the few highlights for me.

    You're wrong it was awesome! Perfect fit to the force awakens! It fits perfect in the star wars story - it wasn't predictable - I enjoyed that aspect - I thought something was going to happen then the opposite happened! Perfect balance of good vs evil!

    I thought it was very good with a number of surprises. Can see the whole 'the force is in everyone and not just a few' thing becoming an issue in the next one. All the hype about Rey's family to find they were just ordinary junkers (assuming that is true) and she is nobody special, then the boy at the end showing force powers. Guessing in episode 9 a whole army of ordinary 'jedi' will form the bulk of the resistance under the guidance of Rey.

    Equally like the way that they got rid of Snoke with no explanation or backstory. Clearly the story here is the development of Kylo Ren rather than the development of Snoke as a character. Pretty much the same happened in Star Wars, Tarkin was the senior character in the Empire but after he was killed off Vader shone.
