Star Wars: The Force Awakens seems to be the movie half the world has been waiting for and after having seen it, I couldn’t resist adding my voice to the many who are commenting on this cinematic phenomenon.
So, in under 50 words, here are my impressions of the film without any major spoilers.
Rey: Tough and resourceful; Nausicaä of Jakku.
Ren: Brooding but unstable; Hamlet with a lightsaber.
Finn: Funny and endearing;
Poe: Cocky but likeable;
Music: Surprisingly underwhelming.
Plot: Unoriginal, but still fun and plenty of mysteries remain.
Overall: More adequate than amazing; room for improvement.
Now it’s time to start looking forward to next year’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.[^_^]
Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!
