It shouldn't surprise us that not everything in The Last Jedi holds together. (Unlike, say, the Millennium Falcon.) The movie has so many moving parts that, at times, it can swing a bit off balance. And, naturally, it has the same content problems that almost every Star Wars film has: Its muddy spirituality; its rare-but-still-there language issues; its massive casualty count.
But for fans of the franchise, this film hits home where it matters most.
