The general reception is 65% on Rotten Tomatoes and 55% on Metacritic from the audiences. I think it's rather the usual band of nerdculture hihi praising non-ST fans that give this movie a pass.
Really, so because I enjoyed the movie I'm not a Star Wars fan? That's nonsense. The problem is that people with a negative view of the movie are quicker to express this, that has always been the case.
The biggest problem with this movie, I believe, is that many fans analysed it to death and so, they didn't get the movie they expected. For me, that's a sign Rian Johnson is willing to take needed risks with the franchise and if he has to upset some fans that still plot characters by power level on a graph, so be it.
