Today I am reviewing Star Wars: The Force Awakens, episode VII of the Star Wars saga. This movie continues the story of the SW universe.
This movie is a cultural phenomenon. There is no way that this movie can live up to all the hype around it, but this film does it as well as possible.
J.J. Abrams has done it. He had the daunting task of creating a new Star wars movie that had to:
Please Star Wars fans
Appeal to non Star Wars fans
Make up for the universally hated prequels
And he did it!
The new Disney owned Lucasfilm had all the right pieces in place. This movie was created by people who have a history and a love for Star Wars; Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy, writer Lawrence Kasdan, composer John Williams and of course Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill.
The new pieces, including J.J.Abrams, Daisy Riddley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac and Adam driver all live up to expectations.
This movie is fun! It has action, drama, humor and heart. It has many homages and familiar moments from the original trilogy. It seems to have something for everyone. Old fans and new fans will find something to like. If you had any interest in going to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens, you should go, you won't be disappointed.
