Fifth about The Seventh

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Star Wars The Force AwakensStar Wars: The Force Awakens: J.J. Abrams (and his co-writers Lawrence Kasdan and Michael Arndt) succeed with the tricky feat of creating a film that both echoes the original films and feels like something new; this mix of familiarity and novelty, however, can be a bit disconcerting at times. The newly introduced characters, across the board, and engaging and interesting to watch. As a result, the film is generally exciting and emotionally fulfilling; the mood is light without being infantile. The casting of Daisy Ridley is inspired, as she is a joy to watch; John Boyega and Adam Driver are not far behind . The returning cast is, likewise, in fine shape. Nicely made through and through; the choice to ground much of the setting in reality was a smart one, even thought the special effects are very efficient. Well shot by Dan Mindel, but it’s the sound design that is the strongest technical suit here.
