Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015)

I have to review this because nobody else has. This review is spoiler free. I will publish spoiler review video during January or February when I relaunch my video reviews.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is biggest movie event of the year. It seems to be more event than movie. Star Wars: The Force Awakens doesn't take any changes. It adds as much nostalgia as possible, It is like original trilogy and some of the best Star Wars games mixed into one movie. If this is what you want you will enjoy the movie.

I wanted something more. Movie even has same shots original trilogy had. At times it hit our heads with references to original trilogy. Everything looked too much like original trilogy. Prequels didn't have anything like Han Solo. So in this one almost everything seems to be little like Han Solo. There is even joke how much like Han one of the new characters is.

My other issue was it didn't explain important concepts. I didn't understood balance between Empires successor First Order and The Resistance. One thing I wanted to know was what happened after Return of the Jedi. We are thrown into this world and nobody explains what has happened. I saw post of "10 things you need to know before watching The Force Awakens". I didn't read it because I wanted to avoid spoilers. I shouldn't have to read posts like that to understand what is happening. Movie should tell it. Avengers: Age of Ultron had same problem.

Overall movie was entertaining. It brought the fun back to Star Wars. It is not disaster like prequels. It is much more like original trilogy. Probably too much like original trilogy because it took too much from original trilogy. With correct audience this probably feel like great movie. There is enough fan service to keep devout fans happy. Like with other JJ Abrams' work it doesn't feel so good afterwards. But during the movie you are having fun.
