Saw it today...
Very gritty, war action (both on the ground troops and star fighter combats), loved the scale shots too which gave everything a much more authentic feel to the narration
As others said, this could arguably be the best movie in the franchise (definitely one of the best at least).
CGI and other effects were phenomenal and Darth Vader was GOAT
my only main criticism was I didn't like the opening 15-20mins of the film. Very boring, scene setting, kept showing multiple cities/worlds with new characters like I was supposed to remember all that, who the characters was and the dialogue....."nah ain't nobody got time for that!"
