Decent enough film but it wasn't "Star Wars"
I'm with you Alan. Thing is Disney paid a small fortune for the rights to the film so it's pay-back time. Once the hype machine starts, it takes on a life of its own.
I went to the cinema probably through nostalgia having seen the original film back in '77. Ray the new character is excellent and will be a future star. Very believable. However a number of things let it down for me.
The new storm-troopers just aren't menacing enough. The rebel alliance's base looks like it was built overnight at a disused airfield at Sutton Coalfield. And to top it all Harrison Ford probably insisted they did his shots back to back. He wanted the original character killed off years ago. Money talks though.
I give it 3 stars out of 5, and I'm being overly generous.
