Verdict – 5/5

 

Pros –

 

1) Fast paced – action packed – to the point. Only star war film with no annoying sub-plot.
2) AT-AT, hyperspace, light-saber fight – what more a fan can ask !
3) Darth Vader in his prime.
4) CGI likenesses of Peter Cushing and Carrie Fisher is criticized in some media forums and I disagree with it. If we can recreate our favorite characters for the story, there is nothing wrong with that. It gives more authenticity to the movie.
5) K-2SO & Chirrut Îmwe are the best outcomes.
6) Star destroyer crash scene

 

Cons –

Verdict – 2/5

 

Pros –

 

1) Visual delight
2) Honestly speaking, I was waiting for the post-credit scene the whole time and it wasn’t disappointing.
3) Cloak of Levitation

 
Cons –

 

1) Generic origin story – nominal villain, token boss-fight.
2) They should have brought Thor much before post-credit scene.
