Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker (2019) (BLU-RAY REVIEW)
DIRECTED BY: J.J. Abrams

RATED: PG-13/REGION A/2:39/1080P/NUMBER OF DISCS 1

While the First Order continues to ravage the galaxy, Rey finalizes her training as a Jedi. But danger suddenly rises from the ashes as the evil Emperor Palpatine mysteriously returns from the dead. While working with Finn and Poe Dameron to fulfill a new mission, Rey will not only face Kylo Ren once more, but she will also finally discover the truth about her parents as well as a deadly secret that could determine her future and the fate of the ultimate final showdown that is to come.

Well, we’ve done it, folks! We’ve once again reached the end of another Star Wars trilogy and this time it might not have been as good as the original, but it was easily better than the ones that came out while I was in high school (episodes 1-3, you know? The ones with Jar Jar). Here we have The Rise of Skywalker and it’s the final battle between the Jedi and the Sith. The plot we’ve seen here for these films wasn’t just movies where we had to watch the deaths of all our beloved legendary characters, it did a fine job of building up this deal with Rey and Kylo and what it will boil down to here. These movies are about the battle between good and evil. They are that at the heart of things even if they never shy away from that area of grey and internal conflict. With that being said, what we get here in this one was very satisfying to Star Wars fans and I feel it might be a fitting end to a somewhat mixed trilogy of films.

While most people want to talk Kylo and he certainly does have a lot of things to talk about from a character standpoint, I think Rey is the heart and soul of these movies and I think she continued to be that here and was the glue that held these together even though the downside of them. I wanted to see her story reach a fitting end more so than I even did Kylo and all the bells and whistles Star Wars tends to throw at you is good and all, but she’s what I think makes the most part of these watchable and that’s the same for The Rise of Skywalker. This movie is a very solid and fun Star Wars movie. It packs a punch visually and hits you on some emotional levels that I think were needed for it to work overall. There’s action, adventure, and above all else, there is a fitting end to this trilogy that makes it all seem worth the journey we went on to finish it.
