-====== Star Wars: Last Jedi Review ====== 
-<note warning> **WARNING: This article contains spoilers. **</​note>​ 
-I will give Star Wars: Last Jedi 5.5/10, mainly because the story doesn'​t make much logical sense. Why is the Resistance portrayed as a good organisation?​ Why is the First Order considered as bad? I think the Resistance looks like an organisation that is very lacking in terms military tactics and discipline. Personally I support First Order, because they seem to be a better organisation. 
-===== Military of the Resistance ===== 
-  * Lack of disicipline ​ 
-    * Capt Dameron disobeying order and continued the attack on First Order destroyer 
-      * This resulted in a pyrrhic victory, and unnecessary loss of resistance personnel. ​ 
-    * Cmdr Dameron mutinied over Vadm Holdo'​s order to abandon ship.  
-  * Failure to win hearts and minds [(hearts_and_minds > Wikipedia: Winning hearts and minds https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Winning_hearts_and_minds)] 
-    * Self-imposed exile by Luke Skywalker 
-      * Even their senior leadership doesn'​t believe in their cause. ​ 
-    * Nobody responded to the distress call by the Resistance. ​ 
-  * Poor military leadership 
-    * Vadm Holdo decided to kamikaze the Resistance cruiser 
-      * This resulted in loss of a member of the senior leadership, it is harmful for morale. ​ 
-      * Couldn'​t she have used autopilot, or a drone? 
-      * Couldn'​t they have done this earlier ​ 
-  * Lack of communication between team members 
-    * Cmdr Dameron wasn't informed of Vadm Holdo'​s full plan of evacuation. 
-      * This partially led to the mutiny. ​ 
-      * It is reasonable to believe that Cmdr Dameron would not have put Finn and Rose at risk by sending them to First Order flagship, if he was informed of Vadm Holdo'​s plan.  
-    * Rose stopped Finn from committing kamikaze, and ended up injuring herself. She managed to crash 2 Resistance vehicles in the process, and she managed to pull both herself and Finn away from the battlefield. ​ 
-===== Military of the First Order ===== 
-  * Justified and Proportionate use of force 
-    * The Cruiser chase scene 
-      * It is reasonable to think that the First Order could have crushed the cruiser then, bu they decided to fire warning shots to ask the Resistance to surrender. ​ 
-  * Unity and Strength 
-    * The red guards revenged for Snoke'​s death 
-      * It clearly shows that the red guards'​ loyalty come from love and respect, rather than fear. Otherwise they would have immediate pledge allegiance to Kylo Ren. 
-    * General Hux always followed orders. 
-      * It doesn'​t matter if it was from Supreme Leader Snoke, or Supreme Leader Kylo Ren.  
-      * It shows that he is a very disciplined and professional soldier. ​ 
-    * Better equipment 
-      * This is probably because the First Order is better managed. ​ 
-===== Politics of the Resistance ===== 
-  * The Resistance refuses to cut a peace deal with the First Order 
-    * Supreme Leader Kylo Ren proposed a power sharing agreement with Rey, but that was summarily rejected. They ended up having a fight during the negotiation - both side wanted Luke Skywalker'​s light saber. ​ 
-===== Radicalisation of Kylo Ren ===== 
-Luke Skywalker tried to kill Kylo Ren while Ren was asleep. Surely this is a safeguarding problem? I believe Skywalker needs to be reported to whatever government/​authority they have. Skywalker'​s license to teach should have been revoked. Can you imagine if your lecturer / supervisor try to kill you, while you are taking a nap?  
-In some ways, I believe Kylo Ren is a hero, he is trying to liberate the galaxy from this dangerous Jedi cult.  
-===== Conclusion ===== 
-I really feel the Resistance deserves to perish ​ 
-===== External links =====
