Movie review: 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' is a grandiose, epic space opera

Writer/director Rian Johnson goes for broke during his turn at bat in the "Star Wars" franchise, and he delivers an epic space opera with "Star Wars: The Last Jedi," a film that is as indebted to the previous installments and "Star Wars" canon as it is to classic Westerns, sword and sandal epics, and martial arts films. After this impressive showing, it's no wonder producer Kathleen Kennedy has hired Johnson to make a trilogy of "Star Wars" films with a whole new cast of characters.
