Quick Takes: The Rise of Skywalker

WARNING: Minor SPOILERS for The Rise of Skywalker...



A few nice moments scattered among a fundamentally broken narrative can't save The Rise of Skywalker (J. J. Abrams, 2019), which caroms at breakneck speed to a climax that's as unearned as it is eye-rolling.

It says a lot when the usually annoying C-3PO gets the majority of the film's best moments, and when a blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameo by Denis Lawson as Wedge Antilles generates more excitement than all the Rey/Ren drama.
