2 out of 10 for me.
Even removing Star Wars from the equation, it's a very poor film: a boring premise stretched over 6 or 7 acts. More like watching 6 episodes of a TV show than a movie.

And poor old Luke. They should have gone the whole hog and made him a pedophile just to really stick the boot in. That would have been a real twist on why his Jedi school got closed down!

Second viewing this afternoon with the family and like it a bit more now, so given it 8/10. I asked my 5 year old son what he would give it out of 10 and he said 20/20. :lol: He wants a Last Jedi Luke Skywalker for Christmas and my seven year old doughter wants a Porge, not shaw how you spell that.

I watched Rogue 1 last night and I can’t help but think why can’t they make these prequel films like that. But when I think about it the kids were not that fussed by Rogue 1. Says it all really.

I’d say 7, some great bits in it. Great to see Mark Hamill have some significant part. Well worth a watch.

I've given it a 5/10.
There where parts of it that I enjoyed and other bits not so much, but they were not put in the film for me, they are there for the new generation of fan's and watching this I was surrounded by kids who were just eyes wide open at what was happening on screen, just like I remember being when my Dad took me to watch Empire.
I do think that is one thing that Disney have done well is introduce Star wars to a whole new generation.
I'm looking forward to where they are going to take it next, also I have to say that I'm always happy to watch any Star Wars on the big screen (I even enjoyed the prequels at the time) but to myself its never going to capture the magic of the original ones.

First viewing and it's just about a 6/10 for me....... can't see it getting any better.

Left the cinema feeling very underwhelmed........ whilst there were some enjoyable moments there were far too many that left me shaking my head.

The whole casino island scenes were terrible, Luke's island maids WTF!, Hux being very annoying throughout, far too much cgi, Rey going from complete jedi numpty novice, to all expert in the space of a minute.

However I absolutely loved the scene when the control ship was flown at light speed into Snokes Supremacy destroyer followed by the deathly silence, very dramatic and enjoyable.
If its Luke Jedi then I'm interested, vintage or modern.

Just a 2 for me. Nonsensical, simplistic, non-canonical tripe. Wanted to love it, but actually hate it :cry:

Just calculated all these votes and the average vote from everyone on here so far is 5.5 out of 10

IMDB has it at an 8, which shows the contrast really as many voters on IMDB who watched TLJ probably are younger Star Wars fans and other people who aren't actually fans, and won't be judging the film as much as we do and comparing to the original trilogy.

Food for thought!

Third viewing and moved my vote up to a 9, I'm starting to find less and less wrong with it after each viewing...

9/10 absolutely loved it except for the crappy Poe and Hux scene at the start which almost made me apologise to my kids.

7/10 for me after my first viewing last night. Didn't love it, didn't hate it. A good watch, entertaining and action packed. Enjoyed it, need to see it again.
