The Star Wars franchise has always been filled with interesting characters. Furthermore the landscapes, space crafts and the George Lucas inspired space world are still fascinating.
"J.J. Abrams is a master director and I'm glad this movie was under his control"He has a habit of setting the tone for franchises even after they leave his hands.
Harrison Ford is back as Han Solo, the lovable rogue. Even chewy is back! The spaceship fighting scenes with the Millenium Falcon are spectacular. The new CGI characters such as the junkyard boss and the little old woman (who knows the jedi arts) are expertly crafted.
The stunning Daisy Ridley is a great addition, I liked her tenacity, her choice of weapon (a staff) and fighting style. John Boyega plays an ex-storm trooper and Oscar Isaac plays Poe Dameron, an X-Wing fighter pilot.
This is the team that is up against the First Order (what used to be the Imperial Forces) and they are lead by Kylo Ren (Adam Driver). Kylo does an outstanding job as a villain who is still honing his craft.
The final scene leaves you wondering what became of Luke Skywalker? At 136 minutes I am pleased to say that Star Wars is back!
