In a surprising turn of events, the final installment of the Skywalker Saga currently has a “rotten” score on Rotten Tomatoes, earning an unfortunate 56% after 117 reviews. The most shocking thing about the score is that it has earned the new movie the second-worst score for a live-action Star Wars film. The only movie to come out with a worse score was Star Wars: Episode I- The Phantom Menace, which earned a 53% rating.
