I actually loved it. I loved the effects, I loved the scenery, I loved the development of older characters and the introductions of the new characters. I thought that it was awesome and I'm really excited for the next ones :)
At first, when it first came out I was excited. A week after, I was still excited for it. A few months later and I can't even remember what happened. All I really remember is thinking Kylo Ren must've gotten light saber lessons from Roxas.
I think it was alright, though it lacked a certain feeling that I usually get watching star wars. I don't really know how to describe it. I really hated that planet laser gun that swallowed the sun, I thought that was retarded and kind of killed the movie.
I do like that there is a female main character, and I do like that there are a lot of characters that can grow to become something greater.
I hated the way they portrayed snook, is that his name, the big tall guy that the enemies looked up to in that dark chamber? Why the hell was he so big, couldn't he have done it over the old style communication consol? I'm not sure I really like the young sith with the three peg lightsabre, that looks like it comes from medieval times. And I didn't really like his lughtsaber, it should have looked different, more sci-fi rather than human made. And then there is a 'new order' but hey use stormtrooper uniforms for the grunt soldiers? Why lol, invent something new, or use the old clone based storm troopers. It was a decent movie, but parts of it are either odd or just lack that star wars feel.
It mediocre. The movie followed the same, boring formula that Disney has been using for Marvel movies (which are also bland), taking no risks nor venturing out to invent new storylines. I didn't like it, and I don't consider it a Star Wars movie. It's it's own thing.
It was a new hope. It may have called back to the originals and overall was a very good film... but I watched the originals days before. It was the same story as a new hope. I found myself disappointed on the lack of original plot.
That said I'm fairly sure it was a setup film to bring more fans in. I enjoyed it. Was probably built up to much in my head to live up to overall expectations.
Kylo Ren was actually decent, couldn't fight for shit though which I though was weird. Rey was too much, like LOOK AT OUR FEMALE PROTAGONIST OMG SHE'S SO AMAZING AND CAPABLE AND INDEPENDENT. Unless it turns out she's a prodigal student of Luke with amnesia then she is just over the top. Even if something like that is the case, then it's still bad writing as a standalone film.
She won the fight with Kylo, like wtf? Luke got his ass handed to him by Vader the first time and had his hand lopped off. He had to grow and comeback and win the day. Rey just straight up won against Kylo, learning a bunch of force powers on the fly. That was bullshit.
I accidentally hit the wrong answer. But I meant to say the characters were out of place. They made Finn a nerd. If he was a battle hardened badass, I could accept it. That, and Kylo Ren was a whiny little brat. Rey is cute and all, but how'd she become an overnight Jedi when it took Luke years?
