If you are looking for an action film, then search no further. The newest Star Wars movie has just as much action as all of the previous films in the franchise. Being that it is a continuance, the film brings forth many new exciting characters to the franchise. In addition, it has many old favorites, such as the iconic Chewbacca and Hans Solo. There is also a comedy factor in this movie that will keep adults and children alike entertained throughout the feature.
Viewers should be prepared for a rather lengthy film…
The only complaint I had about the film was that the antagonist was not as menacing or intimidating as his predecessors.
There were a few surprises… SPOILER ALERT: IF YOU DID NOT SEE THE MOVIE, STOP READING NOW!
We see something never seen before in this movie: a storm trooper turns to the good side. Also, there is a new droid, BB8. He is an important part of the plot and provides comedy to viewers. Depending on the number of Star Wars movies you have seen, this may be a spoiler because the Sith and Empire technically no longer exist. They are replaced with a new threatening “First Order.”
Overall, this is an interesting and amazing film worthy of the Star Wars franchise name. Both fanatics and newbies, will enjoy this action packed motion picture. If you get the chance, you must go see it.
