The best new Star Wars film in three decades and one of the most satisfying films of the year.
Absolutely disappointing rehash of the first trilogy. Disney had a real opportunity to do something new and exciting with this ipr but resorted to rushed writing with an extremely compressed story that makes no sense and fails to make anyone care for the characters or events. Emo Kylo is an outstanding metaphor for the whole deal.
The whole theatre burst into spontaneous cheers several times, and the whole theatre completely went silent - people literally stopped chewing their popcorn - on numerous occasions.
Like you've probably already heard, the movie REALLY is a phenomenal throwback to the original trilogy, with an extra oomph and insane amounts of creativity and new found inspiration that will take the franchise to a whole new level.
The characters are three-dimensional, it's nowhere near as strictly black and white, good vs. evil like in most of the previous movies, and Adam Driver as Kylo Ren is the best example of that. Hands down, the best villian to appear in the Star Wars franchise other than Darth Vader.
Daisy Ridley & John Boyega are thrilling to watch, the old cast members, popping in during the movie were just as fun to watch.
J.J. Abrams and the writers somehow managed to create a plot that was very confined in space and time, yet they effortlessly captured the grand universe that is Star Wars with some pretty great throwbacks to the old trilogy plot-wise. Some might argue that it's lack of creativity and unnecessary repetition, but I thought it was a wonderful homage. It flowed naturally and there really was no dull moment.
Absolutely phenomenal. :)
I think what really turns me off about this movie is that every potentially interesting character gets sidelined for the sake of focusing on probably one of the most boring female protagonists that's ever been written. Rey has no personality outside of being good at everything and being passive aggressive when any male character asks her if she's okay and that, bundled with her palpably plain appearance, made her hard to like. The soundtrack also leaves much to be desired, almost as if John Williams also felt that this movie was a completely unnecessary cashgrab and put as little effort into the OST as possible.
82% is a little high. I enjoyed it for what it was which is a one off experience. Maybe a watch in a few years. The only emotion I felt was due to liking the old movies and nothing to do with the new one. It plays on the old star wars and isnt brave enough to be original. Poe is an obvious Solo rip off. The movie is full of old Star Wars ideas that have been done already. It doesnt really bother me as long as its well made and it is. The action and cinematography were good. I didn't mind Kylo being weak as many did as I'm sure it's part of his character development and he'll come back stronger. But yeah he was trained by skywalker yet is so weak. That could have been different. Seemed like an opportunity just to stuff some connection to skywalker in for the later episode but it wasn't thought out properly in the overall picture. They know fans go over this stuff with a fine tooth comb. The humour bits felt new but out of placertain sometimes. I'd rather have some suspense leading up to an action sequence instead of humour leading to action. The movie is a 6 but polished upto a 7 thanks to the budget.
È vero: la Forza, i Jedi... tutto. È tutto vero.
