Carrie Fisher
Daisy Ridley
Adam Driver

Directed by J.J. Abrams

The first time I saw this movie I was wowed by the effects and the wait I had to endure to see it. The second time around when calm, I can see why this is one of the worst Star Wars movie there is.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker episode IX is an ok movie which takes place in a galaxy far far away. It is my least favorite in this final trilogy in the Skywalker saga, after Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) episode VII and Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) episode VIII . Also, one of the worst movies in the Skywalker saga.
You must remember when watching that Carrie Fisher is not alive during the making of this movie. What we see of her is a mix of CGI for environments, old footage and powerful editing to make her parts in this movie.
Her role is essential and her place as General Leia is paramount to the conclusion of the Skywalker saga. I feel J. J. Abrams work suffered a decline as the trilogy progressed. But appreciate his attempt to make this work and the whole production is just amazing although the new addition to the use of the force did not add to the excitement for me. I think it ruined the Jedi's making them almost like gods. That said I can understand the way some fans felt about the way the movie plays out this Skywalker saga. The ending left many openings. But I feel this was a good swing at ending the whole Skywalker saga and begin a new look at the whole Star Wars epic space opera.

The movie has a different take from the George Lucas first take on the Star Wars story, when we had the “I am your father” moment. In this movie we have a something like, he is your grand daddy moment. Before we get to the plot which gave us the origin of Rey and the conclusion of Emperor Palpatine, both of which you will not find in the plot below, until you watch the movie. I must warn, the movie had a adventure gaming feel. They had to locate this to find that, that will be needed to decipher this to help find the location of that.

The movie starts with Kylo Ren coming to find out that Emperor Palpatine is alive and has been pulling the strings all along. The information of the Emperor’s cheating death gets to the resistance and Rey sets off to find the location of the Emperor, who is said has with him a great fleet to end the resistance.
She is not alone on this journey, with her we have Rey, Poe, Finn, Chewbacca, BB-8, and C-3PO go in search of someone who Luke knew, to help them locate where the Emperor is.
And we get to see Lando get back on the fight.

While elsewhere Kylo rebuilds his helmet and is battling his demons, is getting himself ready to work with Palpatine and rule the galaxy. The movie is how Rey stops this and we see Kylo end his struggles of either staying on the dark side or becoming a Jedi. The movie made me cry when Leia died, for me it was like a final goodbye to Carrie Fisher. Other than that, that Kylo Ren turn from dark to good and the from nowhere funny feelings between he and Rey just made me want to dropkick the screen.

In the end all I can say is that, the movie is as bad as some are making it online, but not so bad that you cannot watch it. I can understand the disjointed feel the whole trilogy can feel like, I felt it too.
As wonderful viewing goes, Star Wars has that, powerful acting and very inviting journey. The movie also merged what we first saw displayed in the Star Wars Series: The Mandalorian, the healing power of the force. Although in this movie, they abused the healing power to the max, then the force ability to teleport things, omg i felt like the writers ran out of ideas on how to end this saga.
This finaly Skywalker movie did not do the needed justice, but liked it nonetheless.
