A near perfect synthesis of old and new. This FEELS like Star Wars! (by TouchTheGarlicProduction)
This movie hits every conceivable emotion, but above all, it's fun. Nowadays, we have so much dark gritty stuff which is great and deep, but it gets tiring. And, things that try to be fun come off as overly silly and dumbed down. The Force Awakens does something not many films have done successfully in a while; combine the two seamlessly into one balanced package. The prequels tried to do this, and it blew up in Lucas' face. The reason it works in this movie is that all the humour and drama comes naturally from the characters. Yes, the plot and beats are VERY similar to A New Hope, <more>
but that was a great movie. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Besides, that's exactly what's been missing from movies lately. So don't listen to all these negative reviewers saying "it's a remake", or a "rip-off". Towards the end, it goes completely its own way becoming more like The Empire Strikes Back.Let's start with the characters. It's great to see the old characters back in action. The Han and Leia scenes could have easily felt like they were just in there for nostalgia factor, but they feel natural and factor into the plot. Given the vast number of characters, it's amazing how very few of them feel shoe-horned in. There are three that I can think of who did, but all three of them are confirmed to be in the next one, so I'll get my fix then. However, the real standouts are the new characters. Adam Driver brings unexpected depth to Kylo Ren. Oscar Isaac is intensely likable as Poe Dameron. John Boyega is great as Finn. But the best is Daisy Ridley as Rey. She is going to be in so much more stuff, I guarantee. The chemistry between her and Finn was one of my favourite parts of the movie.The cinematography is incredible. The camera never moved around in the originals. Here, it follows around the action, capturing the feeling of playing with toys as a kid more perfectly than any movie before. It also just feels so much like Star Wars. Every sound and image is familiar. The movie has a real presence; the practical effects make it feel real. John Williams' new score is great, of course. He does a great job integrating the old with the new. In fact, that would be my summary of the movie. It pays enough homage to the original while setting up an exciting new story. I like how not everything is revealed by the end of this film. The final shot perfectly sums up all the questions we are left with and foreshadows what to come. It may be one of my favourite final shots of a movie ever.In conclusion, some people are going to hate on it for being too much like the originals, others are going to complain that it's not enough like them. Some will say too many questions were answered, others will say that not enough were. In the end, there are so many expectations riding on this film that it will never live up to everyone's hype. It's a minor miracle what JJ did. He had to bring in all of the old, set up a sprawling galaxy of new, establish what's been going on for 30 years between films, add humour, add drama, and somehow make it cohesive and fun. If you go in with the understanding that this is a movie, not the second coming, you will leave immensely satisfied.
Beyond Incredible! Especially Compared To The Laughably Overrated Originals (by morganstokes)
My expectations were very, very high for this movie.Starting with the opening scene, a typical Star Wars opening, I wondered how well it was done. I wondered how it would be different and yet new, rebooting some of the old and original without seeming stagnant.JJ delivered on the Star Trek reboot and he absolutely nailed this one as well.He made it his own movie, he engaged original characters by engaging the new and the old. He let the characters tell their own stories without pushing over the boundaries. The story flowed.John Williams does it again. Harrison Ford was spectacular. The <more>
newcomers were fun, engaging and "cheer" worthy.My only complaint is this: do I really have to wait 2 more years to see the next amazing one directed by Abrams?!Someone pass me the Xanax while I wait, please!!!
A fantastic addition to the Star Wars series!Great story, excellent acting, brilliant action, and so on.The photography was sweeping and excellent. The characters were imaginative and fresh. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and would watch it again without hesitation.The plot was easily the best of the entire series and the cast were all outstanding in their parts.I truly look forward to the next installment and hope J. J. is at the helm. Scratch that, he actually is!!!!
It's as if millions of Star Wars fans suddenly cried out in criticism and were suddenly silenced – as that's the effect this movie should have on most other than those fanatics who were bound to be disappointed/hate it no matter what . For all the SANE Star Wars fans out there, I'm happy to report that the Force is strong with this series once again after taking a walk on the dark side with the prequels . All other shoddy imitations take note – THIS is how you do a space opera. The Force Awakens possesses everything that was missing from the soulless prequels – we have a <more>
non-snooze-worthy storyline, likable new characters, great acting, non-cringe-worthy dialogue and not such a reliance on only CGI effects/green-screen. The pluses of this movie are in abundance, starting with what's new. All those with reservations about the fresh young actors cast to play new characters Rey and Finn should sit back, relax and watch the beautiful chemistry between the two as their characters form a friendship/dynamic on screen which they also seem to share off- screen that rivals that of the original trio.Daisy Ridley more than proves she's up to the challenge of letting a large portion of the new trilogy rest on her shoulders. Her Rey is a scavenger with a good heart as evidenced by her coming to the rescue of BB-8, a droid carrying something important on him . Whilst certain people who for some unfathomable reason don't like seeing a woman who can handle herself may take this new female lead who is smart, brave, kind and just all around awesome as a personal affront to them, for the rest of us who *don't* hate seeing a woman take centre stage, this is what we've been looking for in a female character for so long. She's everything you could hope for...but not without her faults, as she does make occasional mistakes – but not enough you hate her for it. She's flawed, but SO much more interesting because of this. Ridley imbues her character with so much heart and soul, conveys a lot with just looks and even shows she's adept at humour as well. Most importantly, she's likable, forming instant friendship with other characters who we already like so we know she's awesome . Any gripes about her would be for petty reasons/nitpick-y.Sharing her responsibility of being one of the new faces of this trilogy is John Boyega as Finn – a former Stormtooper who refuses to go along with the rest when he witnesses them do something terrible. It's after this that he meets Oscar Isaac's Poe Dameron, who he forms an almost-immediate friendship with. Out of the three new leads, Isaac's Poe is probably given the least development, but he manages to make it believable that he and Finn become close friends in such a short space of time. The best dynamic, though, is without a doubt the one formed between Rey and Finn. The way they play off each other with such ease is thanks in large parts to the actors, but also the dialogue is snappy and quick-witted. They share a fun friendship that becomes quite close, but is always believable due to the actors truly inhabiting their roles/believing in who they're playing as well as the universe they're a part of where characters talk/act in a unique way . One of many things the prequels sadly lacked was heart, but this movie/these characters have it in spades.Adam Driver's Kylo Ren picks up where Darth Vader left off as our main villain this time around and is clearly devoted to his memory since he talks to the burnt mask of him, as seen in the trailers . Driver is quite good at playing the bad guy, though he is prone to the occasional 'hissy fit' with his crossguard lightsaber which verges into slightly over-the-top/petulant teenager behavior. Thankfully, when the big moments occur, Driver shows real emotion/conflict within his character. His lightsaber duel, first with Finn and then Rey, is everything the prequel duels were lacking. They may've had the needless fancy twirling and whatnot, but here we have rough and tumble, gritty fights between someone skilled and two people who are only just learning what they're capable of. Plus there's real emotional investment, which helps. It's an epic battle with tension – which is a BIG plus with this movie: we don't know what's going to happen.Of course it's good to see our old favourites back. Han, Chewie, Leia, R2-D2, C-3PO, even the Millennium Falcon – all of these received applause at my screening. Those claiming this film relies on nostalgia/good will towards the original films alone are mistaken. Whilst the prequels included familiar characters/moments just for the sake of callbacks, what they do here is much more satisfying. Han's his usual charming, funny, "scruffy-looking nerf-herder" self, but he forms attachments to our new characters, and his dynamics with them allows for some of the film's best moments. The movie certainly has humour, but thankfully it's not the "cutsie" nauseating variety found in the prequels. There's genuinely funny moments for young and old alike. J.J. Abrams has been unfairly criticised, when he should be receiving thanks for bringing the Star Wars Saga back from the brink/re-energising it after the prequels. So what if there's some familiarity? My only quibbles were Domhnall Gleeson's shouting/performance, the somewhat hit-and-miss soundtrack, and Andy Serkis' CGI Supreme Leader Snoke - since, in most other instances, Abrams ensured that along with story/character development locations/miniatures/practical effects and make-up took precedence over a reliance on CGI/things that simply 'looked cool'. The sequels have their work cut out for them in matching this thrilling/exciting, enjoyable and satisfying first chapter of a new era in the saga, but if this film's anything to go by, the next two should be safe in the hands. Finally, we have a new hope. What more could anyone without impossible standards wish for?
Great continuum to Star Wars saga No spoilers (by tinovalkki)
Star Wars: The Force Awakens steps into a big boots and fills them honorably. The Force Awakens look, feels and sounds like the real Star Wars movie. It contains all the elements that made the original story so epic. It tells an epic story with great scenery and with fine action and adventure. The Force Awakens is like a reboot of an original story, but the same time it is clearly continuation to an original saga. The story and characters are written well. Actors and actresses get through greatly at their roles. No one feels lame or factitious. The story is clearly a tribute to Han Solo, but <more>
at the same time it brings new characters well present. Maybe only one thing is not perfect. The story serves background stories of some characters almost too easily and dish out them with no big surprise which made the original movie so epic. The original story was actually a soap opera of one family. There are some elements in this story too, but they are reveled almost too easily. Greatly the story leaves enough of loose ends, so probably we will get bigger surprises of the characters later at upcoming movies.Star Wars: The Force Awakens is loyal to its fans and it lacks of prequels plastic look. It looks familiar, but at a same time it is fresh and interesting. Iconic characters are brought back honorably, but at a same time it tells a new story with new characters. It offer a nostalgic and new epic adventure at same package. Great script offers enough of action and adventure. It almost feels like George Lucas says: "This is what the Star Wars meant to be".J.J. Abrams manages to refresh Star Wars saga to present day without forgetting the original fans. It almost feels like I was again that 12 year old boy at 1977, who watched the original story 13 times in two weeks.I watched this movie first time in 2D, but I will watch it again and next time I will see it at 3D, so I will add later to this review how 3D worked in this movie.
The Force Is Here - And It's Welcome To Stay (by dball-61330)
The return of Star Wars has been long-awaited, and it's finally here. With so much hype surrounding the film, there was no-doubt some extreme nervousness about the turnout of the film. But put your nerves at ease, because J.J. and his team have delivered very solid, flawed, but exciting Sci-Fi adventure.There are many aspects to consider when critiquing this film: humour, story, performances, characters and technical achievements - which pinpoint the film's highs and lows.There is a surprising amount of humour in Episode VII. Each character, both old and new, appear to have a comic <more>
value of some degree. Han Solo and Chewbacca are their usual gimmicky, humorous selves. The charisma of our new little droid, BB-8 also adds to the fun energy of the movie. Some may argue that there is too much humour in this film to take seriously. Personally, I found it only added to the quality of the film, after all, what is Star Wars without humour? J.J. and Lawrence have done a fantastic job writing the movie. The story is refreshing, with plenty of nostalgic moments and unfortunately some cliché ones too . The premise of The Force Awakens is definitely one of the most intriguing aspects of the film. After the crawl fades, the action begins, and it doesn't let down! We are greeted to all of the new characters in their seemingly inter-connected lives. We get a bit of an insight into their current lifestyles, motivations and even some of their ambitions. The plot is so event-focused that it demands total awareness and perhaps even repeat viewings. In my opinion, I feel there has been a little too much crammed in to this movie at once, however the unfolding events appear to be leading into what will hopefully be a very exciting sequel.Episode VII introduces many new characters, from Finn and Rey to Poe and Kylo Ren. It's so refreshing and exciting to see the new replace the old, as our next chapter in the Star Wars saga begins. Performance wise, all actors portray their characters well. It's honestly nothing spectacular, but it appears each actor is well invested in their character. Although something to note are our new leads, played by John Boyega Finn and Daisy Ridley Rey . Both present us with fairly simple characters, experiencing a sudden turn in their casual lives. This is quite reminiscent of many characters from this film's predecessors. We'll also be looking forwards to Adam Driver in future, who plays the menacing and somewhat awkward character of Kylo Ren.In technical aspects, The Force Awakens holds up very well indeed. It's so beautifully crafted, and it's clear that this movie was made with lots of dedicated and hardworking hands. The visual effects are what you'd expect from J.J. Abrams - they're big, beautiful and seamless. There's a great balance between makeup prosthetics, practical effects and CGI. It's a welcome balance to the new trilogy. Other technicalities, such as cinematography, sound effects, film editing etc. are all pretty much flawless in their execution. However the most exciting technical aspect of the film I found was John Williams' score. Yes, there are a lot of reprising themes from the original trilogy, however there is a notable amount of new content. Perhaps nothing is quite so memorable as the opening credits music, or say the 'Imperial March', however the new themes are quite sweeping - a great addition to the Star Wars universe.Conclusively, I believe J.J. Abrams has got it right. Yes the film is definitely flawed, but he ultimately delivers us what we need - a fun, action packed, intense and humorous entry into the Star Wars universe. I wish I had payed more attention to the previous films so I could fairly rank them against The Force Awakens, however I can definitely agree that this is a very solid piece of entertainment. When watching this movie, go in with an open mind, but stay alert. The premise will have you on edge and the following revelations definitely deserve your attention! This is indeed a force to be reckoned with.9/10
Not perfect but an excellent starter for a future wider scope of the Star Wars Universe (by eve_dolluk)
Well first thing is its a whole lot of fun !! I can see what JJ has done here which is to introduce new characters as well as reviving the older ones. This creates a huge nostalgia trip and gives you a very familiar setting. The story is nothing new granted and I can understand avid Star Wars fans who are well versed in the expanded Star Wars universe that may be a bit disappointed. Having said that as a stand alone film it is far from disappointing and for the younger audience this is a new story. The new characters are great, Fin an ex Stormtrooper plays a rather naive young man who is <more>
clearly trying to impress the girl Rey. Rey takes the lead however yet Fin is not just a tag along buddy. Rey certainly seems like the most interesting character with the most depth, a scavenger from a desert planet who doesn't know her parents sound familiar Ren as the bad guy seems more like a petulant child early on who hes a lit of anger issues. Cant say too much more without spoilers although I wish he had kept his helmet on.Poe is the dashing Xwing Pilot as part of the resistance and he is quickly separated from his sidekick BB8. BB8 is a very likable character and is an R2 replacement but slightly cuter.You then have other characters such as supreme leader Snoke, Captain Phasma who looks awesome and the quite scary General Hux.On top of that Han, Leigha, Luke, Chewie, C3P0 and R2 all return in varying degrees.What we end up with in story terms is a bit of a reboot of a New Hope with slightly different elements. This is not a terrible thing as for older fans its a great nostalgia trip and for newer fans its a great introduction to the Star Wars universe.You will however leave the cinema knowing the previous 6 films wanting more answers as to why things have turned sour again. As a standalone film it works on all levels but is slightly vapid in depth and at times could have done with a slow down in pace.It seems JJ tried to cram as much as possible into one film to move the sage forward, JJ is of course not directing the next instalment so I can see there being a lot more depth in the next 2 films plus 2 or 3 more expanded universe films I just hope that the following films can find some emotion and spirit that is somewhat lacking in the Force Awakens. I will look forward to a second viewing but one thing Force Awakens does do is puts you back in the Star Wars universe with a great big bang !!May the Force be with you !
An exhilarating continuation of the Star Wars saga and an homage to what made it special in the first place. (by lnvicta)
If there's any movie you should see in theaters, The Force Awakens is it. From the first frame you're sucked right back into the Star Wars universe, and that's probably the best part of the movie - it feels genuinely like Star Wars. Not a child-pandering political farce The Phantom Menace , a melodramatic soap opera I'm looking at you Attack of the Clones or a CGI filled sensory overload Revenge of the Sith anyone? . No, it's barebones Star Wars. Visually stunning, constantly engaging, and most of all, it's incredibly fun. There are a lot of parallels with A New <more>
Hope, like how we're beginning this epic adventure with vastly different characters and learning their stories for the first time. And it shares the basic outline of that movie as well from the monumental opening shot to its massive riveting climax. It's a blast from beginning to end, and especially exhilarating in a packed IMAX theater. The characters are easily relatable from the moment they're shown. Their stories are simple and to the point, allowing the audience to follow them in their journey every step of the way. There's also a lot of humor in the movie, and not the dopey kind either. It's clever and self-referential humor that suits the characters and their motivations while also being damn funny in context.It's hard to put this into words because if you're a fan, you're well aware that watching Star Wars is an experience. There's a rush of being back in the universe and seeing some of your favorite characters again. The threats are even bigger this time around. The First Order is what the Empire has become, led by Supreme Leader Snoke and his apprentice Kylo Ren. At first glance Kylo might seem like a second-rate Vader, but he has much more depth than that. Things are revealed in the movie that piece everything together, and when all is said and done, Kylo Ren is not only a great villain but a great character - charismatic but insecure, arrogant but unexperienced. You can empathize with him at times, but it's obvious there's great darkness within him, and not only because of his haunting mask. The heroes Rey and Finn are immediately likable and easy to root for, and when they start uncovering the bigger picture behind the First Order's sinister plot, they behave exactly as you'd expect them to. Not pompous or valiant but hesitant and curious, at least until their lives are on the line and the only way for them to survive is to band together. Then their inner heroism comes to light.Everything about The Force Awakens is phenomenal - the acting, directing, and writing are all on point, and it serves as a wonderful template for this new Star Wars era. I don't need to spoil anything because the fact is, if you loved the original trilogy you're going to love this. Hell, if you're a fan of good cinema you should love this. Episode VII is what Star Wars fans have been yearning for, and when all is said and done, I couldn't ask for anything more.
The heroic cosmo-opera "Star Wars" ended with the third episode "Revenge of the Sith" in the distant 2005th year, later books and serials opened deeper into the universe, using plots of the expanded canon that shed light on clonic wars and some heroes like Darth Maul, the best villain franchise - Darth Vader. Six episodes of the saga, for all its difference in influence on the viewer and the fans together made up an amazingly solid canvas. The classic adventures of old films and political epic and air battles began the twenty-first century. The new generation requires a <more>
new "Star Wars". But the merger of Lucas Films and Disney, together with the cancellation of canons, triggered a sharp narrowing of the universe, where the new heroes are creating a new story. The new trilogy wanted to see when it comes out completely, but knowing how they like to squeeze money out of milk cows, then nine episodes may not be limited, so did not begin to delay acquaintance. The synopsis of the film can be briefly described as follows: Luke Skywalker went into voluntary exile and became a myth. But in a distant galaxy, a conflict is arising between the First Order, inheriting the traditions of the Empire, and the Resistance, led by former Princess Leia. She sends her best pilot to find the map, which will indicate where her brother disappeared. By chance, the card hits the attack aircraft Finn, who does not want to serve the First Order, and the scavenger Ray from the provincial planet Giacca. Find the last Jedi not only they dream, but also the powerful servant of the First Order of Kylo Ren ... Studio Disney conducted a workshop campaign to promote the seventh episode of the "Star Wars". Around the film was created an incredible hype, and at the same time Jay Abrams and his comrades managed almost nothing to talk about the content of the upcoming film. It seems the last time such an atmosphere of mystery surrounding the plot of the fantastic film was before the release of the third "Matrix". And the Wachowski brothers were intrigued not for nothing - their picture was generous with surprises successful or not very much discussed some other time . Abrams, on the other hand, is inclined to foment intrigue where there is no need. So, he let the fog around the character of Benedict Cumberbatch in the second "Star Trek", although only the lazy did not know who it was. That's the mystery surrounding the story "Awakening Force" had no special meaning, because he does not present any special surprises. The director has repeatedly confessed his love for the original Star Wars trilogy and stressed that he was trying to reproduce the stylistics and spirit of the classic episodes of the saga. But in his desire to be equal to them Abrams did not confine himself to the video series - the plot is also built according to the patterns of the early "Star Wars". Something similar could be seen in the universe of the Jurassic Period, where the classic "Park ..." was also resurrected, but in the new high-tech scenery, repeating the classics of the ninety-third year, the film offered nothing fundamentally new. The same can be said about the "Awakening of Power": it successfully reproduces the atmosphere of old star wars, does not skimp on references and direct quotes, but there is not even a new history here. As it seems to me here the failures of the starting trilogy films, I want to immediately show all the most important, give the right keys, but do not disclose all the cards at once, otherwise the case will prove to be dying before the situation requires it. Of all the new characters Finn, Po Dameron, Ray the latter is better uncovered and even then it is not completely, I think that the episode of the eighth will give a little more information and food for thought about its origin. Finn is also a good character, but could be worked out better, the blessing is kind: a stormtrooper who crossed over to the side of the Resistance, but the motives for desertion are not disclosed, there are no clear leaks to this. According to Dameron, too often loomed on the screen to make any judgments. Actor's work pleased. The newcomers coped well. Joe Boega in the role of Finn looks good, there is in this stormtrooper a comical element. Daisy Ridley in the role of Ray coped with its task, in her fate I see similarities with Luke and Anakin, in the sense that both grew on desert planets. Giacca is somewhat similar to Tatooine, but the atmosphere there seems gloomier. In the role of Kylo Rena is Adam Driver, the one who I liked as the priest Garuho, whose moral appearance impressed me slightly more than the main character. Kylo Ren is an ambitious character with a great villainous potential, but ultimately it is the synthesis of Anakin Skywalker's rushing, not knowing what he needs. But his ancestor to the dark side was reduced to the Sith, the future Emperor. Somehow his motivation is somehow incomprehensible: he wants to match his ancestor, but in this episode it has not turned out so far. Verdicting: By and large the film turned out to be quite good. Of the advantages worth noting the style of the original trilogy, spectacular video in this movie has always succeeded , the acting is not for everyone, but by and large does not cause questions. But the film is worth watching. Wait and see! All good and pleasant viewing!
