“This will begin to make things right”. A fitting line for the beginning of The Force Awakens. One which has also been conversation of topic over the past week, but that is for a different post. Nevertheless, Star Wars: The Force Awakens brings back a franchise that a lot of people have been longing for. Fans have been waiting for that moment to finally get the bad taste out of their mouths, is this the moment they have been waiting for?
For those of you who don’t know, the Force Awakens is a struggle between the First Order and the Resistance to find the last remaining Jedi, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). Along the journey to find Luke, the audience meets a few new characters, Rey(Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), Poe (Oscar Issac) , BB8 and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) as well as encountering some old ones: Han Solo (Harrison Ford) , Leia Skywalker (Carrie Fisher) , Chewbacca, C3PO, and R2D2.
The transition between the old characters and thew new is brilliant and works fantastically. The plot is well thought out and brings back the traditions from the original star wars movies. The acting was great and Kylo Ren has the makings of a spectacular villain.
One of the only problems with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is that following old traditions can lead to predictability. There are scenes and other moments that play out in the Force Awakens that can be easily foretold by fans of the franchise.
Positives: Fantastic acting, great transition between the old star wars and the new star wars, perfect new characters and a villain that can really become extraordinary, perfect plot and awesome way to set up sequels.
Negatives: Story could get semi predictable at times
Star Wars: The Force Awakens finally brings a heartbeat to the franchise introducing great new characters as well as bringing back great old ones. This is a must see for any fan of the franchise and anyone who is looking to get into it!
