Daisy Ridley's Rey and John Boyega's Finn are having a blast as the touted twosome out to save the day in J.J. Abram's celebrated STAR WARS reboot THE FORCE AWAKENS

"to the sequel trilogy!
<em>'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'</em> entertained me. It felt like a fresh direction for the overall franchise, which I guess is little surprise given George Lucas was not a major part of this. I actually didn't notice a great deal of difference, or at least as much as I thought there'd be given his exclusion.
I enjoyed seeing the new cast merge with the old trio, even if there are only small appearances from two of the latter. Daisy Ridley and John Boyega are exce"
"love. It's sly with humour and nods to foundations, a blitzkrieg of effects and sound work (my Blu-ray viewing had my sub-woofer doing a jitterbug in the lounge), and it doesn't shy from surprise or the dangling of the carrot.
The makers have big heart and technical invention, the cast vibrant, spunky and strongly committed to the cause - the old hands a very reassuring presence - Yeah, so it's not sci-fi perfection, or any Star Wars geeks' idea of the perfect Star Wars movie (oh J.J. Abrams "
"was just released, but my time didn't yet allow me to watch it. However, I do have time to review the film that started this new trilogy: The Force Awakens.

"A very entertaining film filled with immensely fun nostalgic moments and lots of laughs, but this is movie is not perfect, no it is not.

One more thing that bothered me a lot is Kylo ren, not the character, the ac"
"**The Force Awakens: A New Hope 2.0**
The highly-anticipated follow-up to the Original Trilogy treads through familiar waters, taking the "safe route" approach. Though The Force Awakens has its fair share of phenomenal moments and is definitely an improvement over the Prequel Trilogy, its reliance on using the Original Trilogy (mainly A New Hope) as a template feels nothing more than an imitation of events that occurred prior.
At the end of Return of the Jedi, the Empire suffered a great l"
"**The following is a review that I originally wrote in 2015.**
Was it perfect?
Was it basically a shot for shot retread of A New Hope?
Did it under-develop characters and plots of almost everything interesting to near Boba Fett-ian levels?
Did the entire thing rely on about 47 ridiculously implausible complete coincidences that the story would have fallen apart without?
But after more than three decades, is Star Wars finally back?
