“30 years after the defeat of the Galactic Empire, a new threat rises. The First Order attempts to rule the galaxy and only a ragtag group of Heroes can stop them, along with the help of the Resistance.”
Years after the much maligned “prequels”, and even more years since the original trilogy, comes Star Wars episode 7…The Force Awakens. If i could sum this entire review into one phrase, it would be “Star Wars is back”. All the sounds and sights and everything about this movie screams Star Wars. It’s not a perfect movie, or a perfect Star Wars movie, but it is the foot forward that this franchise wanted, needed and deserved. This movie is also a great example of setting up compelling characters, while also leaving us wanting more in a way thats both satisfying and leaves you wanting more. Everyone who has been waiting for years and years to get another great Star Wars movie, have found it. Like i said before, this movie isn’t perfect, but the problems it has are minor, and won’t apply to every viewer either. I won’t go into any spoilers, i’ll save that for later on, but take my word for it this movie is worth seeing, and worth seeing on the biggest screen you can find. The new cast is fantastic, and they aren’t out shadowed by the returning cast. The score is everything you could want and more, and the movie answers some questions, and makes a lot of new ones i can’t wait to try and answer.
Review Score : 9 out of 10
