I saw the new one yesterday. It was good; it was not great. Aside from the first ~15 minutes (which need serious reworking), it would’ve been a fine end if we hadn’t had The Last Jedi first. TLJ was stellar, and TRoS walks back half of what made it great.
Also, in case The Force Awakens didn’t make it clear, Abrams is a heavy recycler, whereas Johnson seems to have really understood what made the original trilogy great and put a lot of that into a new, modern story.
