I saw the movie yesterday and have mixed feelings. I dont like it and I dont hate it.
I will say this. Personally when it comes to these type of movies, Great villains make the movie for me. I LOVE!!! a good bad guy. Whether its Darth Vader, Magneto or Apocalypse in the XMen, T1000 in T2, Bane and the Joker in the Dark Knight movies, etc
I cannot say enough how much I dont like what they did with the villains in this movie.
I was worried about them making a Darth Vader ripoff in TFA, but they had me liking the Kylo Ren character and thats gone down to a luke warm feeling after this movie.
Supreme Leader Snoke was such a waste......hopefully thats not completely finished
and Captain Phasmas fight was terribly done and couldve been a good moment in the movie, instead it lasted two seconds. I dont have a problem with Fin winning (though by my count he should have died 4 times now), but the fight was just short and sloppily written.
there are a bunch of other things that I didnt care for that people have already mentioned and go without saying (like Lea in space, how had no one veto'd that scene all throughout the movie making process???)
there are a bunch of other things that folks are making a big deal over that I really think is just too much and in some cases trying to pile on. But hey to each their own.
But for me personally, and on a simple level, as someone who enjoys a good sci-fi action/comic book hero film. The handling of the villains really bothered me.
