Star Wars the Force Awakens

I didn’t like Star Wars The Force Awakens. It was too Disney. There were so many repeated scenarios from A New Hope that it felt like a poorer, rehash of the same film. Kylo Ren was a great bad guy until he began questioning his beliefs and took his helmet off. Then he just fell apart and became really weak.

I know it’s about 30 years since Return of the Jedi and Star Wars doesn’t really do flashbacks and that of course lots of things must have happened in the story, but I can’t see how they can go back and tell them in any detail, unless they do episode 6.5. How Han and Leia’s son turned to the darkside could probably make a fantastic file which also covers how and why Luke went into exile.

Han Solo was still by far the best character, but his lines weren’t funny and not delivered with the same style as the previous films. And what’s happened to Princess Leia’s voice? Very strange. It was so disappointing to see how naively solo died.

I spent quite a while waiting for the film to get going and then realised it was half over. It never really got going and was far to predictable.

They must do better next time.
