Star Wars: The Force Awakens: a spoiler free review

Okay, I'm going to do my best not to post spoilers, but I will say this is probably the best Star Wars movie I have seen! 
I guess Rey and Finnn made the movie for me, and I enjoyed their introduction to the characters we all know and love from previous films. 
I went to the film with a great audience, and we all cheered once we saw a familiar face. 

In terms of script, this movie was written so well. I haven't seen this kind of writing from Hollywood in a long time, and I believe it did justice to the orginal three. (Episodes VI, V and VI) 
The foreshadowing, the dialogue. It felt like we had returned to the world of a galaxy far far away. 

It was wonderful to see Star Wars on the big screen again, and I love the new characters, they're fun, relatable and I'm excited to see their legacies unfold. 

BB8 was also adorable! 

Okay, in terms of the older character's stories, I thought they were written very well. The antagonist had a little background story, but I'm sure we will learn the reason behind their choices in the next films. I feel like the writers wanted to keep up the suspense until they dropped the twist, that I found to be believable. 

In terms of another big secret that is later revealed, I have all kinds of theories, and I'm curious how that character will confront their long built fear. Fear is the path to the dark side after all. 

In terms of character, I loved Rey, Finn and Poe. They were a great addition to the story, as the consequences of the previous generation fall on their shoulders. In terms of feminine roles, Rey's role was amazing! And I loved Finn's origin story. It's so exciting to see a character come to life and relate to the audience so easily, and I imagine that was not an easy process for the story department. 

All in all, the force was strong with this film, and I can't wait to see what will happen next! 

Five out of five blue lightsabers! 


  1. Glad you liked it. I thought it was a fun movie, but more importantly, I think it will re-energize the fan base and stop the kvetching about how no Star Wars movie can ever again match the original trilogy. I'm looking forward to the next one.

  2. I agree. I think that the other movies are good in their own way. But this one is probably my favorite now ^_^
