Star Wars: The Force Awakens

 

I have waited 30 years for this movie and I’m still deciding if it was the movie that I was waiting for. Probably after seeing it a couple more times I will be able to decide.

I have talked about it with a couple of people and have been told that I sound disappointed, but I’m really not. I was very happy with most of the movie, and my biggest problem is the fact that someone is missing, the same someone that is missing in the trailers, but I will discuss that another time. This movie was definitely made for our generation. It played great homage to the Original Trilogy actors, and it really was good seeing them again.

It is a great “hand off” movie to the next generation of Star Wars stars and fans, the new hero’s are set up and I really think that Abrams did a great job with Finn, and the story with him deciding to not be a Stormtrooper any more (That’s not a spoiler, it’s obvious from the trailers). Kylo Ren might be the most powerful Dark Jedi since Sidious, and it would of been nice to see Captain Phasma more on screen, but I’m sure that is coming next time.

In my opinion this installment was obviously lacking the “Lucas touch”, which I felt ok with. Abrams did for Star Wars what he did for Star Trek, and that’s what I expected!
