Luke Skywalker is the central character of Star Wars. Whether people want to argue and mention Darth Vader, because of the prequels, that is totally fine with me. But in the original film that started it all, we get to see Luke. Luke in front of the twin Suns on his planet and longing for hope and adventure.
So, seeing him back after all these years was a course a dream for many. They fantasized about him being back and jumping into the adventure.
But this is not the way that writer and director Rian Johnson chose to do it. This took major guts. I really admire the courage of Johnson, who chose to follow what the character told him and not the opposite. It would have been easy to have Luke Skywalker jumping aboard the Millenium Falcon and join the adventure. But is that really true to the character? Would an old hermit like him, secluded on his remote island, really do that? Having him losing his faith and staying there is actually working perfectly. And I think that overall this was the best homage that could have been given to this wonderful character, that will have been perfect into the four movies (Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi and now The Last Jedi.)

I found really odd that Princess Lei was able to resuscitate into space and then also fly in space...

Soon after, we meet the new character of Rose. After the girl, the black and hispanic protagonists, here is now the Asian character. While I find of course great to see this melting pot, I don't watch film wanting to purposely be "correct" in the way they show a little bit of every type.
But most important, the character of Rose is definitely the least interesting thing in this film and its biggest weakness.

Which brings me to the sotry of the master code breaker. I did not find this storyline inspiring. It felt too childish and overall too much screen time for nothing.

Visually, the film is truly outstanding. The colors and images are wonderful. Rian Johnson really took the time to beautifully craft some the imagery of The Last Jedi.
As an example, when the small ship is flying full time against a big enemy craft, the shot is splendid. No sound, just pure quality.

I give the movie 7 out of 10. Excellent.
