I enjoyed watching it in the theater but when I got home and thought about what I watched, all the plotholes started jumping out at me until they were all I could think of. It rushes at you so fast with so many cheap pops it doesn't give you time to notice its flaws until you take time to process what you saw, and Disney was banking on people not doing that and just going "holy poo poo" online over and over until it's time to consume the next movie. For an example of a major plot hole: how the hell did a loving remnant of the Empire that doesn't look one tenth as threatening manage to build a weapon to surpass the Death Star in only a few short decades?
Also it felt like they were trying to shoehorn in all the plot beats of the entire original trilogy into a single movie, so there wasn't enough time for a proper space battle. They introduced the x-wing squadron like in New Hope but did fuckall with them, I can't even remember. RotJ did a far better job balancing the ground, space and lightsaber action so that all three were of a satisfying length and were reasonably fleshed-out.
