Yes, only episode 1 and The Clone Wars reviewed lower, though the margin is close enough to Episode 2 that it could pass it as more reviews come in. 


Not sure if this is a good sign or not. Critics loved episode 8 and it was terrible, one of the worst movies I have ever sat through. Maybe the fact that the critics hate Episode 9 is a good thing, afterall they didn't like Episode 1 or 2 and I like those quite alot. However, it's also worth noting that fan reactions at the Hollywood premiere were mixed, some said that it was great and a perfect conclusion to the Skywalker saga, others said that the plot was horribly convoluted and hard to follow.

I think we have another TLJ on our hands, going by the plot leaks, which have been confirmed. Only this time they aren't exactly pushing an agenda that agenda driven critics can get behind. In fact, them trying to desperately get back the fans they shit on just two years ago may have pissed those critics off.  Now, we just have a mediocre, maybe even bad, film that critics can't ignore is convoluted and poses more questions than answers old ones. Something Jar Jar Abrams is known for.
