Warning: Major Spoilers for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has finally rolled out into theaters, proving to be another divisive entry into this saga.

There were plenty of reasons to be worried about how the film would turn out, from concerns about retconning the previous film to how they would wrap it all up when there was no clear roadmap for this trilogy. Sadly, not only were our worst fears realized, but it was worse than anyone could have ever imagined.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is a disaster. It's a horrible finale - even worse than the final season of Game of Thrones - and by far the worst Star Wars film.

The Last Jedi isn't great, but it had some bold storytelling which just didn't always work. Even the prequels, as poorly written and painful to watch as they are at times, at least had a vision and creative ideas.

The Rise of Skywalker has none of that. It's lazy, completely devoid of imagination, overstuffed, and has the worst script of any Star Wars film.

This is what happens when a studio lets two filmmakers with very different ideas make a trilogy without a solid roadmap they were required to follow, resulting in an incohesive series that leads to a truly abysmal finale.
