Even though Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been mostly praised by critics, fan reception has been divided at best looking at user scores on Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic.

However, a new audience poll/survey has been taken in the USA and it shows a more positive response.

As reported by Mashable, data acquired by Survey Monkey has shown that many American adults like the movie. An audience poll of 4,441 USA adults was taken and a healthy 89 percent of those asked either loved or liked the film.

This is a stark contrast to the 50 percent or so of people that didn't like the film on other polls used by Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic.

That being said, Survey Monkey only polled American people since the other sites can be used by people around the world.

The aforementioned Survey Monkey poll was taken between December 15th until December 19th so it would have been fresh in people's minds. Mashable expects the reception towards Star Wars: The Last Jedi can improve with multiple viewings.

It's really hard to grasp an accurate number to how many people liked and disliked the film.

One thing is for sure and that's the fact that Star Wars: The Last Jedi has way more polarizing views compared to The Force Awakens and last year's Rogue One.

It will be interesting to see what JJ Abrams is able to do with Star Wars: Episode IX. One would think he would take the feedback from fans to make the next film more universally appealing.

So far the movie is still killing it at the Box Office so Disney will make a lot of money regardless of what people think of the movie.

However, Disney/Lucasfilm may want to oversee future Star Wars movies more closely to ensure a majority of people are happy.
