Star Wars: The Last Jedi was a failure.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi was a failure.
“I hate what you’ve done with my character.” These were the exact words of actor Mark Hamill—the man who played the beloved Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy—spoken directly to The Last Jedi’s director, Rian Johnson. This would be a sentiment shared by thousands of Star Wars fans across the globe.

It’s been one year since the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and the Star Wars fan base seems to be about as divided as ever. While there is no denying that the film was a box office success, there is also no denying that the film was one of the most divisive entries in the series to date.

Past interviews with director Rian Johnson actually captured him stating how he one day wanted to make films that would tear audiences in two, with one side loving a film, and the other side hating it. Is this really the person that deserved to carry on the torch of one of the most beloved franchises in all of cinematic history? A person who wants to divide a community of fans?

Yes, it’s true that The Force Awakens clearly mimicked the story and tone of Star Wars: A New Hope, but most people would agree that it wasn’t necessarily a bad thing. The movie felt like a proper Star Wars flick, while The Last Jedi felt like it was done by someone who’d heard about Star Wars but never really watched any of the films. It completely deviated from the plotline that The Force Awakens established, and introduced a bunch of unnecessary characters, plot points, and settings that honestly felt like nothing more than filler.

And of all the sins that The Last Jedi had committed, the worst of all is that it ruined Luke Skywalker.

It's a Flop, a big humongous Flop!

I'm a big star wars fan and I have high hopes for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, I even watched it on its premier night. You should here the silence when the film ends. There was a lot murmuring, no one clapped and i left disappointed.

No, I think it's not a failure

I am not a fan of Star Wars franchise. But, I have heard and seen many clips of Star Wars before. I searched about this particular movie and found out that it grossed more than a billion. I guess that's enough to call it successful. But, I don't know with the real fans.

Not a failure

I disagree with Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a failure. Yes, the movie has some rough edges but it is not a bad movie and there are worst movies in the Star Wars Franchise.

The movie did well in the box office and it made billions of dollars so we cannot call it a failure.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi was actually a huge success in our country. Of course, it's evidently successful worldwide. I have seen so many discussions on social media about the movie, and I think, being one of the talked about movie of the past year is already a great achievement.

It may seem weird to a lot of people but I’ve only seen one Star Wars movie and I find the whole series boring! Not my cup of tea at all! Anyone else not at all a fan of Star Wars out there?

We'll never know if it's just a strategy. They might have did this intentionally in order to get more attention from the people. The more the movie is so controversial, the more viewers it would attract. This might have what happened here because even though it has a lot of negative feedback along side with good ones, it still generated a lot of income.

I really hate what they did to Luke Skywalker in the movie. It was so boring, and I really think that they could have made a much better film than that. Just look at Star Trek all its films are Blockbuster hits and they don't have a single boring film. What happened to Star Wars?

Star wars: The Jedi was a success in my country. It collected huge amounts of week in the first week and then it died down as the days progressed. The movie was declared a success at the box office. Yes, it was not that good when compared to the earlier movies but I am sure that Star Wars would bounce back.
