Erik Davis of Fandango described the film as “epic.” He added it was “a terrific finale.”

Variety’s Adam B. Vary stated he would need time to digest the film.

Maude Garrett of Geek Bomb declared that it is “the best film in this trilogy.”

Mike Ryan of Uproxx described the film as “convoluted” and that the first half is “bogged down with exposition and new plot and doodads and beacons and transmitters.”

Yolanda Machado of Latinx Factor felt the film had too much fan service.

Collider’s Steven Weintraub noted he would wait to comment on the film until after it has opened.

Angie J. Han also at Mashable noted there was quite a bit to ponder.

Dan Casey of Nerdist described the film as a “fitting ending for this incredible, 40+ year-long saga.”

However, he added the movie “gets a bit convolulted.”
