Idk if I’m just a big SW fan but, this movie is so nostalgic for me after I went to Star Wars galaxy’s edge! It’s such an amazing film highly recommended
Sir baggy bottoms
Rey is my lest favorite character. I even prefer JarJar. Rey is annoying. Her character seems perfect. Is there any mistake she makes. I prefer star wars 1-6. If they wanted a female jedi . Put in Ashoka Tano. She is an awesome character. I think my problem is they didn't add characters that are already in the Star Wars world. Like Luke son named Ben. Or Solo and Leia other children. They had like four or five.
JJ Abrams tries his hardest to start something fresh a plane it to safe. The team Disney created to create this movie in this trilogy did not try hard enough and did not have a vision as it is clear with the end product.By the way force awakens has more digitally created (CGI) shots than Star Wars Phantom Menace.
It would be awesome if Japanese subtitles were added!
I hope it goes back to bed , I wish I can have my money 💵 it was horrible
This is trash, just like the other sequel movies. Makes no sense at all
The originals are the best
The sequels movies on Star Wars are bad. it basically copies a new Hope. Watch at your own risk. Luke and Anakin are better then this movie. And the lightsaber battle is bad. all the good Star Wars movies died with return of the Jedi. And on a other note why do people love this? I mean seriously 😒 this movie is racist and annoying Rey makes Anakin and Luke look weak!!! But like all bad characters,Rey will be NOTHING.🤣🤣🤣🤣 and Luke and Anakin are MORE powerful than Rey and will always be! If your Kathleen Kennedy I will say this: your plan has failed.Luke Skywalker is alive!!!!! And Rey will die out with the end of your rule. for George Lucas will take over. And he will kick you out of Lucas film(which is his not yours!)if you are a fan of this movie I will say this:turn alway from this movie. This movie is long dead (like the last Jedi and rise of skywalker)why is so much love for this movie!!!!😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😒😒😒😒😒😒😒🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬
Amazing! Some twists and turns! Great new characters! Daisy shines! We also get to see the old characters again!
Makes no sense. How does she defeat a trained Jedi with her first sword playtime!?!
Not the worst of the sequels, but still not great.
Old l Star Wars forever
The old Star Wars had depth and meaning to the characters evolution.The new Star Wars is ruining the magic and world of the Star Wars trilogy I guess movies were just better back then
I really liked the introduction of Rey. She is a vital player in the story, and she is my favorite Star Wars character. Thanks for making this movie!
Want me to sum this up in a short story?
Okay here goes;
“The Force Awakened then got some therapy. It sat on the porch and blabbed about old times. The Force Awakened, but I fell asleep.”
Why!? WHYyYYYyyyyyyyy!?? Why did Han Solo have to die! Whyyyyy!? He was my favorite! I was expecting a high stakes movie with Han Solo through the whole movie but I was wrong....😔. It was a good movie but for people who love Han Solo please consider skipping the somber part....😭😭😭😭😭
best of the sequels but started off the worst part of star wars
This movie is horrible. It ruined pretty much everything that made Star Wars amazing. They shouldn't have made this. Star Wars ended with episode 6.
Best PG- 13 movie ever!!!
This movie is awesome!!! Great job jj!!!! Rey is my all time favorite!!!! Watch it right now you won’t regret it!!!
It was the same plot as A New Hope, but it is watchable
Not a very good movie. Plot not original. Basic copy of a new hope. Star killer doesn’t make much sense as a long term weapon. Music score not great, only March of the resistance and Luke’s island are good. Lacks the vigor and awesomeness of the original triolgy.
The Force Awakens has nearly the same story line as A New Hope. The only differences are that there is little to none character development for the new characters, there is more profanity, and Starkiller base is big.
Poe was a great character, Finn was ok, but the movie was a repeat of A New Hope. The rathtar scene was pretty good. Maz was a fun character I wish they did more of her in the other ones.
If there was ever a time where you could walk into a movie theater with not the highest expectations to revisit a famed series that took the world by storm and changed the way we looked at science fiction and special effects with lots of pomp & circumstance, this is it. J.J. Abrams has been a magician with his work of the past and here he seems to have hit his high point, he has alot to work with and a very good cast of new characters to put into play, however the only draw for me from loving this movie to full capacity was that it shadows the original a little too much in regards of storyline & plotting. Star Wars is now the type of franchise where most or the work is cut out for the filmmakers, plenty of destroyers, a battle station that is always plotted to be blown up, and a couple of fugitives that set the tone for excitement & action sequences. Its hard to distance this movie from seeing the original, not that it completely shadows it in every scene, but that it doesn't really create its own identity and go in a new direction, but that’s probably (and hopefully) what the upcoming sequels will give us.
The movie starts with a pilot named poe (Oscar Issac) who retrieves “a piece” of a map that leads to the abandoned Luke Skywalker from a local villager in a dessert planet called jakku, his plan to escape is stalled when some storm troopers and the cruel but mysterious antagonist Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) who resembles Vader in every way, comes to intercept the missing piece to the map which supposedly leads to lukes whereabouts. We are given away a hint about the villain from the local villager saying he “didn't rise from the dark side” this kind of information is given away too early and it makes the plot unfolding a little too predictable, but he certainly is the most ruthless and fun villain on screen since vader. Shortly after we meet the very fragile and feared storm trooper Fin (John Boyega), he helpes poe escape when captured by what is now “the first order” the new version of the original Empire from the first trilogy, they becomes best friends the second they escape the destroyer ship and land yet back to the jakku dessert. We are than eventually introduced to the best character and also the best thing about the film, a dessert scavenger named Rey (Daisy Ridley), whats baffling about these 3 main characters is they all have 3 lettered names, you would figure for a franchise like star wars that a genius like Abrams would have some initiative like George Lucas who gave the original characters real normal human names, but they all perform great on screen which makes us forget the significance of their names.
The plot is very much like the original in this sequence, theres a missing piece to a puzzle that is being pursued by the bad guys and trying to be solved by the good guys, theres a new battle station which in ways works like the original death star, in which the returning han solo eventually says “its big”, its 10 x the size of the death star, but it uses the power of the sun, why on earth would we want to drain something that gives all of the galaxy its life & purpose just to destroy one or five planets? which we eventually see happen when the famed “Republic” is destroyed by the station. The movies eventual plot is to destroy this battle station, just like the death star sequence in the original.
The saving graces of this star wars are the amazing visual effects and colors blended on screen and dignified re-intros of the original characters, han solo & chewbacca, eventually leia, than the 2 crop figured droids C3PO & R2D2, the new characters and their fun, quirky, and at times humorous dialogue, and the great action sequences that follow through. Poe & fin act as if they are college roomates and they behave as common human beings from earth, we are not used to this kind of banter in a star wars movie, usually its the jedi & so called droids speaking special languages & dialogues of the force. When Rey is introduced she is the most inspirational, kind, lovable & noble character since luke skywalker himself, yes folks the first female to lead a star wars movie and who eventually will become a jedi which we are led to believe, when she runs into fin who believes his new pal poe is killed, they begin to trust in each other in completing poes mission by bringing the new lovable droid BB8 to the new breed of rebels “the resistance” they find the famed millennium falcon in a junkyard in jakku, which is also considered a junkyard according to everyone besides rey, han solo & chewy intercept the ship by suprise with Rey & Fin piloting it, han puts the inspiration in grumpy, he acts as a cranky and frustrated grandpa who acts as a foster parent toward the 2 fugitives, he feels as his attachment toward them builds, so does his responsibility.
I like how these new characters bring such energy & charisma to the film its a new and fresh feel and they never run out of steam. Than when the films focus shifts to Kylo Ren, we learn that he wears his mask “for no particular reason” what is he hiding? What is the purpose of not wanting to show off his surfer haircut that already matches his black outfit? Vader as we came to realize he was disfigured and his life depended on that suit, he would “die” if his mask was ever removed from his face. REN is more of an insecure and rigid figure under the mask, he shows plenty of vulnerability he takes it off and confronted by rey later in the movie, but eventually that is partially resolved later on and i will not unveil the reasons to those who haven't seen this one yet.
The Force Certainly Awakens in this movie, it made me forget the prequels were ever made, and it brings the classic entertainment & charisma of the first star wars movies, just not the originality, i give this one 3.5 out of 4 stars.
It’s a watered down version of a New Hope. Is it bad? Far from it. But it’s just A New Hope. Gotta admit, it was really fun seeing this on opening night.
I can’t believe this used to be my number 1. But I still really enjoy watching it! 5 years later, It’s still amazing. Not 5-star because I’m disappointed Han Solo died (even though he’s in Episode 9) and I wish Finn never existed. There’s just no point of him and is one of the only characters I might admit I dislike. But the music is great and the graphics are great. And It’s just a copy of A new hope but I still liked Starkiller base and the introduction of a bunch of new characters.
I hated this one because they killed Han Solo off in this movie.🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬😡😡😡
What saves this movie is the truly disturbing character Adam Driver portrays.
I Love Berries
The other two are much worse
That this would have been the only good movie out of the final trilogy. Wish JJ had been given creative control over the whole project
The Force Awakens refreshes what we started with Return of the Jedi. This time it includes new characters such a Rey, Finn, Poe and Kylo Ren played by Adam Driver. This Star Wars entry is suprisingly good and has neat visuals and talented cast growing into this mega space oprea film.
The end was good
A successful return in my eyes. JJ had the horrendous task of bringing back Star Wars, he succeeded I think.
He managed to make a new charming cast, the film feels like the 70s (weirdest thing I’ve ever written), and... Maz... so yeah...
Kylo Ren is the best, non-Palpatine, Star Wars villain. Better than Vader. While his unmasking was jarring at first, once your used to it you can really empathize with him! He’s the best part of, not only this film, but the whole trilogy.
Rey is also a great protagonist. I’m not a feminist, but honestly, what’s so weird about a women being a Jedi? There are women Jedi in the prequels, why can’t there be one here? Is it because she’s the lead? There it is! Anyway, Finn and Poe are great (not romantically), seeing the old characters is just... magic... pure magic...
The flaws are Starkiller Base... just that really, that really took me out of it... 8/10!
This was a predictable remake of the original, we did not ask for this. I will never consider these part of the Star Was canon.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Wow! I’m surprised! This movie was a excellent beginning to a “aftermath” of the empire. Good job JJ!
Fletch F. Fletch
Everything from the space brat sith fanboy throwing tantrums and sporting the least effective bad guy name in recent memory (Kylo? Sounds the offspring of hipsters who attends a mellow voice private preschool that encourages touchless hugs) and wearing a mask that makes him sound like a broken drive thru speaker, to the fact that they’ve included the original stars but then DID NOT put them in one single scene together, to a complete plot rip off of the first Star Wars movie and of course a remarkably bland hero...this is a weak journey into a galaxy far far away. Where the original six movies were part of a story thought out in advance, as the additional sequels prove, this was the first chapter in a new trilogy that had no overreaching story and nothing new to say, made by filmmakers that chose to pander as opposed to innovate and made it up as they went along. There was no desire to do anything with these sequels other than to make money. While all film is essentially still a business, the best of the lot generally also have artistic motives as well. This is a soulless enterprise made by committee and focus group data. On its own perhaps it’s watchable as the technical aspects are top notch, but it’s impossible to view it without considering the movies in the series that came before. And when judging it against that standard this is a very poor excuse for a sequel.
This movie is just a bad dream. Star Wars: Return of the Jedi is the true ending.
I’m not a huge Star Wars fan but I find SW very interesting keep up the good work!!!!
I have been rewatching the Star Wars movies and I haven’t seen this trilogy yet, so I was excited for something new. I loved this one so much I rewatched 3 times in 2 days. It’s definitely worth the money.
I am fully aware that this movie completely plagarized Episode IV: A New Hope, but it works for some reason. I actually liked some of the new characters including Poe, Kylo, Finn, and BB-8, even though I think sometimes Kylo is kind of a freaking emo crybaby. The biggest thing was the return of Han, Chewie, C-3PO and R2-D2, and Leia, which made it feel adventurous, especially with the classic Han Solo humor. However, Rey was kind of growing on me for half of the time, until the dumb scene where she mind-tricked James Bond. I remember her taking Anakin's lightsaber (it's not Rey's in any way you idiots) and I thought it was the coolest thing in the world, but as I watch it more and more, I was just waiting for the inevitable. More on that for the next episode (ugh).
In conclusion, yes this is a good film even if it's the exact same thing as something else, but that's why we have formulas that work.
