I’m going to review the previous two Star Wars films in the spirit of the upcoming Star Wars episode VIII. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a 2015 epic space opera film directed by J. J. Abrams. It is the sequel to 1983's Return of the Jedi and the first instalment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy.
This film knows exactly how to please its own huge fanbase. The film looks spectacular, from the landscape to the space battle, everything exceeds my expectation of how a modern Star Wars film should look. There are moments that definitely give old time fans chills, like the Millennium Falcon scene. I like the new protagonists and the performances are actually quite good. It has more comedic elements incorporated to the film, and most of it works really well. Kylo Ren as the main villain is a good addition, I enjoy his character personality. The returning casts from the older films are also a very satisfying sight to have.
The film kind of plays everything too safe without taking any risks that would’ve made the film much more refreshing. It follows the standard plot progression that is extremely similar to episode IV. The lightsaber action is underwhelming to say the least. The final act feels way too easy and it doesn’t feel like the stakes are really important. Also, for some reason they decided that Rey should be a Mary Sue character, which is probably not a good idea to have, since it destroys the possibilities of her character development.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a very solid film and a great start to a new saga of the Star Wars universe. It’s a simple yet effective film that will definitely please fans of the franchise.
