The Rise of Skywalker review

So it all comes to an end. After 42 years, the Skywalker saga comes to a close, with JJ Abrams entrusted to guide the saga through its conclusion, but can the man who made Star Trek cool again and wowed most with The Force Awakens stick the landing? Or was it a baffling move by Disney to re-hire him after he refused the offer to do Episode VIII and then clearly didn't like the choices Rian Johnson made in that film?

The boys answer these questions AND give their definitive ranking of all Star Wars films as The Countdown continues ...
