While easily the most spectacular, impressive and beautiful Star Wars movie ever, it lacks a story that is consistent with the rest of the franchise and most characters are at best a caricature and at worst a complete betrayal of what made them compelling. The visually stunning backdrop has little to back it up and it gets worse with every re-watch. Everything that was set up in Force Awakens is discarded or ignored and doesn't give any pay off to the lore. The new characters are shallow and insipid and one dimensional. It's enjoyable to watch if you aren't that into star wars, but if you're a fan and you want to follow the saga, it's difficult to enjoy.
