Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens's user reviews


It must have seemed like a nearly-impossible task when JJ Abrams and his collaborators set out to bring "Star Wars" back to life, but they've more than done it. They've made something honest and beautiful and, above all, fun, and I find myself energized by the movie and by the promise it represents.

The Force Awakens reveals surprising connections, begins a few bromances, solves mysteries while digging up others, and sets a strong tone for what comes next in Star Wars lore. Best of all? It?ll make you feel like a kid being introduced to something truly special once again.

"The pleasure of seeing for the first time and without notice what is right to gaze in wonder designed by J.J. Abrams is hardly comparable with anything. Or almost."

"Abrams has adopted the relatively cautious strategy of essentially remaking the original "Star Wars," which allows him to delight fans by bringing back the original players while laying down the groundwork of the new ones".

From the off, JJ Abrams?s film sets out to shake Star Wars from its slumber, and reconnect the series with its much-pined-for past. That it achieves this both immediately and joyously is perhaps the single greatest relief of the movie-going year.

"The Force is back. Big time. As the best Star Wars anything ? film, TV show, video game, spinoff, what-have-you ? in at least 32 years, Star Wars: The Force Awakens pumps new energy and life into a hallowed franchise in a way that both resurrects old pleasures and points in promising new directions".

"For impressive stretches, Abrams achieves the action-packed buoyancy of the old Saturday morning serials that partly inspired Star Wars in the first place".

This mediatic circus has entertained me moderately, wishing the film would be a little shorter. What can I say? Not really my cup of tea.
