Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

(A movie review by Inesh Shenoy)

Hi! This is Inesh of the iThree. We saw the latest movie Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker on Sunday. This latest film is directed by J J Abrams and produced by Lukas Films. The Rise of Skywalker is the ninth episode in the Star Wars series and brings an end to the Sequel Trilogy. It is also the last movie of the overall saga.

Hear the movie review directly from Inesh Shenoy!

In an earlier movie The Force Awakens, Ben Solo became Kylo Ren and he tried to make Rey go to the dark side. This also happened in The Last Jedi.

This storyline continues in The Rise of Skywalker too, where Rey, Finn, Poe, and The Resistance have to find the Sith Way-Finder, but only two of them were made and Kylo Ren already has found one of these.

Star Wars… Here we come!

A Sith Way-Finder is a special compass that leads you to a secret world called Exegol, where Emperor Palpatine has been hiding all these years. He has now created the biggest fleet ever, which he calls “The Final Order”, and is threatening to start a war to end all resistance and rule the whole galaxy.

They start searching for the Sith Way-Finder, but Kylo Ren finds them first and again tries to make Rey go to the dark side. Rey finds that she can’t control herself. Rey is scared that she might become bad, bring an end to the Resistance, destroy the galaxy, and rule the universe with Kylo Ren.

Will Rey be able to control herself? Will the Resistance win the war? Or will Emperor Palpatine win, with Kylo Ren successfully making Rey go to the dark side? You should watch the movie to find out.

What good is a movie without a couple of buckets of pop-corn?

My favourite character is Babu Frik. Babu is very cute and funny, and he is also one of the important characters in the movie.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker was full of suspense and action. The graphics were very nicely done, and it all looked very real. It was really nice how they made the movie very serious and funny at the same time, I really liked that combination. I love Star Wars movies because everything is futuristic: from laser guns to spaceships and space travel, it is all very interesting. Overall, the movie was awesome.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is a must watch for everyone. It is a great way to end the saga. I loved it and I’m sure you will too.

Special Effects of the 4DX Theatre

My brothers and I watched Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in the PVR 4DX Theatre, these were the following features:

Scent: If we were watching a scene with flowers, fruits, plants and trees there would be a nice sweet smell.

Motion: If we are flying in a plane, swimming in an ocean, or running, the seats move exactly how the character is moving, it all feels very real.

Wind: if we were in a heavy storm or going at top speed in a car, air would be blown at us.

Snow: If we are in a cold area like a snowy region, there would be fake snow falling all over the place. It was a very nice feature.

Smoke: If there was a fire in the movie, the whole room would be filled with smoke, you would really think that there is a real fire!

Water: If you are near a shore and the waves are really strong, some water gets sprinkled on you! This also feels very real.

Light: This was one of my most favourite features because everyone would be shooting guns and there would be light all over the place! Even if there was a lightning strike, there would be a flash of light. This was the best feature ever. I loved it!

Thanks to the 4DX features, we felt like we were inside the movie and a part of everything that happened. It was a wonderful experience!

Bye guys! We’ll see you next time.
