First things first – It’s a good film but not the kind of film which would make me go WOW. When George Lucas first took up Star Wars it was a novelty the audience were being treated to something which they have never seen before. But this version kind of had sameness to it.
When u re-boot a franchise for a newer generation the first film of the franchise becomes very important. It should first be a good stand alone film for the audience to comprehend the proceedings. The Force awakens fails in this regard. Star Trek was a much better reboot with a lot of emotional quotient.
The best thing about this film was Harrison Ford’s charisma. He has this quality of making franchises work with his screen presence alone and yes he will be back for the next film. One more thing which works well is the passing of the legacy of star wars to all new cast. Hopefully a better star wars film next time.
Watch this on the big screen once if u have never watched star wars in theatres before. Check out George Lucas’s theatrical versions on DVD to fully understand the vision of the great film maker.
My verdict 3/5
I would prefer George Lucas’s Version over this one any time.
