Really enjoyed it. Lots of fun and captures the spirit of the original trilogy. Action, Special Effects and production design are all excellent. Story (although strictly a rehash of episode IV) works really well and keeps the momentum and suspense coming.

Do have one big complaint, because it's basicly a remake of episode IV, their isn't much suprise.......hopefully they will make up for it with part VIII.

Seeing the original cast.......ahhhhhhh just terrific.

Comments above were after the first watch in cinema. Finally saw it again today. Still stand by my previous comments but the it also bothered me a little bit more how much of VI is just IV. Also the untrained Rey using the force THAT good without training......hmmm

BUT GREAT FUN :-)

Has anyone made a comment about how it's similar to episode IV? I don't think I've seen anyone ever say that yet.

Essentially, it's Fan Service: The Movie.

For the record, though, I really enjoyed it.

The Search is on for the Legend Luke Skywalker. The First 30 minutes of The Force Awakens are fucking awesome, the opening credits to the action packed start, Its back with a bang it captures the Spirit and Magic of the original Star Wars, the return of Millennium Falcon was such a joy. Sadly in turns into a a remake with another plot about Death Star ( for the 3rd time in the Star Wars Movies) But this time the star is BIGGER and with BETTER EFFECTS.

Oscar Isaac is in a lot of the best scenes in the movie, he needed more screen time, this man is a Superstar, The force is his screen presence. Hope he plays a bigger role in the sequels. I liked newcomers Fin and Rey and there backgrounds, good chemistry between the two, BB-8 over R2D2 any-day, Infact BB-8 is the best character in the film. Damn Han Solo is bloody old, its awkward him watching him run, the movie goes down a level when Han and Chewie appears, and down another when Princess Leia and C-3PO get of the ship. The film don't give the returning characters a background about what happened in the period between episode 6 and this one. A certain SPOILER lacked emotion to me.

The lead Villain Kylo Ren is bad-ass from the start, but he goes downhill from there, is family relationships seem forced and rushed, such a confusing character, Reminds me of a Young Professor Snape when he takes his mask off. Its hard to believe this really powerful Jedi that's turned to the dark side can struggle to beat young untrained Girl in Rey and former Storm trooper in Fin, Kylo Ren is quite weak and crappy, C-3PO might even have a chance of beaten him in a Light saber battle. Luke Skywalker with a beard is god, he will be this series version of Yoda, Hope he brushes up on is acting.

Star Wars The Force Awakens is a recycled version of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, which leaves lots of unanswered questions. I Would say it's the 5th best Star Wars Movie from the 7. Director J.J. Abrams and Disney played it safe, low on creativity and imagination it lacks memorable scenes to be a great film, No denying it was a fun bumpy ride which I enjoyed the nostalgia but its brings nothing new to the World of Star Wars and Blockbuster movies.

I tried to go into the movie without any expectations. I almost did but I ended up pretty excited as it finally started. From the moment of the three bloody stripes on Finn's helmet, I liked the movie and it didn't let me down. I admit that you might have some difficulties do get the whole story that happened in these thirty years inbetween. I bet it will be explained in future movies, though.
I can't really understand all of you who have a problem with the fan service.... I mean what if Abrams would have done his own original movie, without any appearance of the old cast etc. ??? I think most of the fanservice or "unoriginal" complainers would have rebelled and shouted "that's no real star wars!" "Where's Han, Where is Leia ??" "What is the relation to the other movies??" and so on.... you get the idea ;)
Personally I really enjoyed the film, I liked Kylo Ren (he is not the true evil guy... geez... he is becoming it maybe) because of his imperfectness and I loved the lots of citations and links to the original trilogie. I am born 1992 but I can imagine now how the "a new hope" audiences felt after the first star wars movie. Thank you, J.J.

Basically just a carbon copy of Episode IV "revamped" for the kiddies. Bigger special effects. Bigger Death Star. Everything is bigger except the diminutive prospective Jedi and the villain, which seems like the economarket version of Darth Vader. Just an overblown Disney toy commercial. Shame.

I can't drink the Kool-Aid here. This film is fun and exciting, but it lacks an identity. It's a pale, even lame reflection of the original trilogy (especially "A New Hope") that is made for an audience keen on nostalgia and little else. I'd actually rather watch the prequels, even though they were less well executed - they had much more to sink one's teeth into.

You know you didn't enjoy a movie when you don't even bother to look at the trivia section on IMDB.

It doesn't beat the original and in some sections not even the prequels. It was a fun and enjoyable disney ride. Safe but nothing iconic.

Luckily for the next movie we get another director because like any Abrams film: strong beginnings, weak endings.

6/10

One hour after the midnight screening my thoughts are thus:
"British Anna Kendrick is hot."
"The exteriors are fucking amazing."
"spoiler was completely telegraphed but the editing of the emotional responses was effective."
"What's the Republic?"
"I really like the two leads but Finn really should've had more of an emotional reaction to shooting his former comrades. He hesitated with the complete strangers in the beginning."
"What a waste of Max von Sydow?"
"Finally Max von Sydow is not introduced as a good guy in the beginning only to be revealed to be with the baddies all along."
"The First Order are really channeling their distant future cousins, the Third Reich, for fashion tips."
"Yep, I really don't like Domhnall Gleeson as an actor. Adam Driver even less."
"I really wish Kylo Ren kept his helmet on."
"The Star Wars movies do a great job of establishing their villains but make them too easy to take down. Case in point: the gorgeous snow forest light saber duel between an established bad ass, a cowardly traitor and an untrained Force user."
"John Williams is probably the only composer who be self-referential and still get away with it while composing a great score."
"This is JJ Abrams' best movie. His inclusion for a literal mystery box gets a pass for actually servicing the story in a significant way."
"This was a serious case of over-acting. I'm not entirely sure why, the human actors are good, but I did not believe that they were actually the characters they portrayed. You can tell that these are well-taught actors that are calculating their reactions. Harrison Ford is the only one who gets a pass because he acted according to the image he has built over the years as the surly grizzled veteran."
"There is no consistency in the make-up of the humans."
"As a non-Star Wars fan, I was entertained and actually look forward to the Rian Johnson directed sequel, but have little interest in the Colin Trevorrow episode."
"There are still so many other movies I'd rather watch or re-watch than paying to see this again."
