Star Wars: The Last Jedi might have been enjoying critical and commercial success, however, the film's also become one of the most divisive films in the Star Wars franchise.

The Force Awakens sequel might given the franchise a fresh new perspective, however, some felt outraged by how the film subverted fan expectations and turned the classic hero Luke into a bitter and jaded hermit.

Taking time off his hands, Reddit user TheNeptunianSloth decided to see whether The Last Jedi was really the most divisive installment in the franchise, using the statistics on each Star Wars film's IMDB page to calculate how divisive each film actually is.


"It got me wondering: can we know for sure that it actually is the most divisive film in the series," the Reddit user explained. "By how much is it more divisive than the second most divisive film? What is the least divisive one?"

Here are the results of the computation:

1. The Last Jedi – 2.696

2. The Phantom Menace – 2.062

3. Attack of the Clones – 1.914

4. Revenge of the Sith – 1.837

5. Return of the Jedi – 1.695


6. The Force Awakens – 1.612

7. A New Hope – 1.602

8. The Empire Strikes Back – 1.517

9. Rogue One – 1.405

Guess The Last Jedi might be the most divisive film after all – which isn't quite a surprise considering the giant gap between the film's critic and audience scores. It's interesting to see though how The Empire Strikes Back and Rogue One are the two least most divisive installments in the franchise.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is currently screening in cinemas.
