Everyone who's seen Star Trek 2009 and ITD pertty much knew exactly what JJ was going to do with this film. It's a pretty close beat-for-beat remake of ANH complete with "Young hearo on a desert world finds a cute droid with important plans maps. . . death star. . . discovering the force. . . main protagonist defeated at the end but still alive to come back. . . and you know the rest.

Since it is a JJ movie, don't expect much in the way of amazing dialogue or writing, but be prepared for a film with nice pacing which looks and sounds beautiful with lots of well done action. The acting amongst the old cast is pretty flat, but the new crew is pretty solid. Daisy Ridley and John Boyega really upstage Ford/Fischer/Hamill, but that wasn't hard. The real surprise is how Adam Driver blows all of them away, and gives us a top-notch villain with some real conflict.

3.5/5
