Editor's Note: Light "Star Wars" spoilers follow
"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" may have busted box office records and received overwhelmingly positive reviews from critics, scoring a 95 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but not everyone is enamored with the film.
L'Osservatore Romano, a Vatican newspaper that largely reports on the activities of the Pope, published its own review of the film, calling it "confused and vague" and taking issue with the film's interpretation of "evil," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The paper, owned by the Holy See since 1861, wrote that the film's villain was subpar in comparison to previous franchise baddies like Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine.
"The counterpart of Darth Vader, Kylo Ren, wears a mask merely to emulate his predecessor, while the character who needs to substitute the Emperor Palpatine as the incarnation of supreme evil [Snoke] represents the most serious defect of the film," the reviewer wrote, according to the report.
"Without revealing anything about the character, all we will say is that it is the clumsiest and tackiest result you can obtain from computer graphics."
Of course, this review does not reflect the Pope's opinion of the film, as "he doesn't watch movies," according to NBC.
"The Force Awakens" has garnered $689.4 million globally since its release, pushing Disney over the $5 billion mark for global box office sales for the first time ever. Disney's previous full-year record was $4.73 billion in 2013.
The film smashed box office records, earning $247 million during its opening weekend
