'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' Reviews Are Out

Sit down for the tea ONTD. The embargo for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker reviews has lifted and they...

are terrible!

It currently holds a rotten score of 56% on RT.
We'll see if it continues to go down.

Here are some snippets of the reviews:

From the LA Times:

The problem with "The Rise of Skywalker" isn't any single omission or misstep. It isn't the succession of cheap "gotcha!" twists that briefly threaten to alter how we look at these characters, only to abruptly pull us back to rose-tinted reality.

Entertainment Weekly:

Rise of the Skywalker isn't an ending, a sequel, a reboot, or a remix. It's a zombie.

Vanity Fair:

There doesn't seem to be any real organic idea animating Rise of Skywalker; instead it feels cobbled together from notes stuffed in the suggestion boxes of Reddit and Twitter.

Even some of the good reviews are only lukewarm.

Houston Chronicle:

If it's not all that it could have been, it's also more than enough.


"The Rise of Skywalker" isn't perfect, but seen that way, it more than rises to the occasion.

The critics did praise The Last Jedi, so maybe they are wrong about this one too??
