The Top 10 Reasons Why Star Wars: The Last Jedi is Disappointing

The Top Ten

1 Luke Skywalker is gravely mistreated and is NOT the Luke Skywalker we loved 34 years ago

-Darth Vader: Kill children padawans, betrayed and murdered the Jedi and his master and friend Obi-Wan, almost extinct the Jedi Order, falls into the Dark Side, becomes the second most powerful Sith Lord, cut off his son's right hand, killed many almirants and imperial people.

But Luke believed that there was still light and goodness inside him, and despite being a Sith, Luke manages to save his father from the darkness.

-Kylo Ren: He is Luke's nephew, he was a Padawan, Luke apparently saw "darkness and evil" in him, and instead of guiding him, he contemplates and tries to kill him, although Kylo never killed anyone before that event and before massacring the Jedi Academy.

Leave his luck to his sister Leia, Han Solo, the Republic only to go into exile and become a bitter suicidal misanthrope. He does not want to be found, but he leaves a map in R2D2, I suppose because he likes to be the difficult stubborn and to beg him.

Apparently here Luke is ...more

I’ve seen plenty of good and lengthy arguments as to why the Luke we see is who he is and why he does what he does, but the way they decided to end his story and seemingly speed through most scenes with him is such a slap in the face to me. - imightbeidioteque

Nah Mark Hamil was pretty good

2 Nearly EVERY serious or emotional moment is punctuated with a (bad) joke like a Marvel movie

Don’t get me wrong, I know Star Wars is a mostly light-hearted and goofy time, but the amount of unnecessary and flat jokes that are tacked onto plenty of important and serious scenes is so frustrating.

I like Marvel movies, but a Marvel movie this is not. - imightbeidioteque

Untrue and the jokes were good when they happened

3 The “reveals” of Supreme Leader Snoke and Rey’s parents are ridiculously underwhelming and swept under the rug

By far - darthvadern

That's true

I can understand how this is a good thing in that it subverts our expectations, but I think it’s a waste of time to tell and show all these new things in The Force Awakens, just to cancel them for no real reason.

If they had NOT created a mystery around these things, it wouldn’t be as big of a problem to me. - imightbeidioteque

4 Rose Tico is an awful character who’s driven by false hope and stupidity, and makes a gigantically dangerous and illogical decision based on “love” she feels for someone she barely knows

I think she's a forced and annoying character. She has all the worst lines and delivery in the movie. I hope they take advantage of the enormous room for improvement in the next movie. - imightbeidioteque

If Luke didn't step in at the last moment, every single character in the movie would have died. - Not_A_Weeaboo

I hate ROSE! You know what? If Rose wasn't in the film, than Finn would be successful with his mission. Oh, she pushes him off to the side for a kiss?! What Finn was doing was very heroic, but she is so desperate. And wasn't Rey Finn's love interest? You're ruining Star Wars Mickey Mouse ):(

She’s worse than Jar Jar, mainly cause of that scene near the end. - DCfnaf

5 So many plot-points from ‘The Force Awakens’ are ended unexpectedly, and then many others are created just to be ended again
6 Leia’s HUGE use of the Force begs more questions and confusion than it does providing a good scene

While it provides for a moment of spectacle, it just begs questions about why we’ve never seen something like that before, especially when a character who ISN'T a Jedi or even a Sith does it. Leia being force sensitive was never THAT much of an important part in the story, aside from her relationship with Luke. I don’t understand why this happened, besides to save Leia from an unceremonious death. - imightbeidioteque

7 Rey doesn’t have to work very much or earn her way into becoming a Jedi

"What are you talking about Rey isn't a mary sue" *Rey shoots down at least 10 Tiefighters without missing once on a turret shes never used before* *Rey is able to easily handle a gun shes never used before (she misses once but its because the safety was on). *Rey is able to beat luke skywalker for no reason.* *Rey just so happens to run in the millennium falcon on some god forsaken desert world.* *Rey is able to resist mind tricks from a sith lord, even though she has had no training against is and didn't even believe the sith existed before that point.* I could go on for days. (by the way the way saying a she has a staff and that why shes good with a light saber is like saying someone whose only used a crossbow before is automatically a great marksman with a sniper.)

8 Han Solo's death bares no real consequence on ANYTHING that happens

Leia’s reaction at the end of The Force Awakens is appropriate and understandable, but we get 10 SECONDS of Luke asking what happened to Han, followed by a cut to a competely different scene. Luke never even says his name again after that. - imightbeidioteque

9 Carrie Fisher does NOT feel like Leia

This can be easily debated, but I feel like Han Solo is the only returning human character that truly felt like himself. - imightbeidioteque

10 We are lied to about Captain Phasma’s importance and the size of her role

I have this at the bottom because we knew she wasn’t going to be important to the trilogy begin with, but the blatant lying about her role TWICE, and wasting what could be a really cool rivalry between she and Finn is so disappointing.

There’s no reason why she couldn’t have been just another standard First Order trooper. She's quite literally just a shiny object to dangle in front of our eyes. - imightbeidioteque
