I must say it follows a plot too close to the originals' for new and refreshing comfort, but Episode VII is near perfect in the special effects, cast, and engaging action departments. The force is most definitely strong with this one.

As many reviewers have already said, it is essentially episodes 4 and 5 together. But, I'm interested to see where this new trilogy is going to go. For pure nostalgia, there is nothing like it.

if people asked me is it good i would say yes it is. something tht has not been said about star wars since the first 3, but the reason why i cant say its great or rate higher is it is not without flaws.
its almost like they had a guide line of things to do like the original and they stuck to it. the android to replace r 2d2, rey to replace princess lea ,the first guy to replace solo etc. then they basiclly ripped of the entire story of the original. the bridge scene was extremly lazy i can understand the rest but that was too far of a riip of and a terrible ending for the best character
the guy who played what is basically the new darth was terrible. seriously who cast that guy as a villian. he was more like a posh buy in a play than a darth character. poor choice.
overall its the …

"Hope is not lost today... it is found."
Finally I was able to admire this highly anticipated feature film. Although, I wasn't waiting impatiently for this new episode, like so many millions of other Star Wars fans. I always have to think hard while trying to situate this Star Wars movie in the whole saga. All that prequel, sequel or semi-sequel mumbo jumbo isn't something I'm thrilled about. To be honest it annoys me immensely. When I was an 11-year-old boy I went to the theater, together with an uncle, to watch the very first Star Wars movie. Afterwards I came out of the theater totally flabbergasted. It just knocked me of my feet. This was, at that time, never seen in any previous movie and was quite impressive. Especially for a young boy like me. The following two sequels build …

Es scheint so, als ob Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens der Film sei, für den Regisseur J.J. Abrams geboren wurde (schaut man sich seine bisherige Karriere an). Der neue Star Wars setzt 30 Jahre nach der letzten Episode ein und ist überraschend leichtfüssig, humorvoll und auch berührend. Er weist so einige Familienangelegenheiten um die Sippe Skywalker auf und eine neuen Todesstern. Abrams greift selbstbewusst auf die Serie zurück und spielt mit Versatzstücken. Es scheint die Verpflichtung zu geben, dass Star Wars diese Themen wieder aufgreifen muss. Dennoch ist es eine anregende Reise geworden mit den archetypischen Charakteren, einiger plausibel psychologischer Elemente und melodramatischer Konfrontationen. Eine gute Episode, vielmehr gut für Star Wars! Vor allem stellt …

My brother is older than I am by a year, and he has tormented me for over forty years. Still, I believed him when he told me that Disney announced it was delaying Episode VII until the summer. I didn't think he was trolling me until he said Vudu was going bankrupt. Anticipation, excitement, giddiness, uneasiness...it's all building with enormous pressure

Final trailer has hit, tickets have been purchased, books have been written a a video game is going to hit in November. If my anticipation level were any higher I would break all the known laws of physics and will myself into the future so I could watch this now.
