Fifth about The Seventh

Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Revisit

Star Wars The Force AwakensStar Wars: The Force Awakens:  director J.J. Abrams, and his co-screenwriters Lawrence Kasdan and Michael Arndt understand that this franchise is at its best when it follows the blueprint closely: clear black-or-white sides (even the scoundrels fall squarely into one of these eventually), overwhelming odds, charismatic heroes and villains. This entry, that for better or worse (your mileage may vary) emulates the original film so closely, intends nothing more than being entertainment (other than, perhaps, being a merchandising juggernaut), and succeeds (in particular, if one has already emotional investment into this universe). Daisy Ridley and John Boyega are great together, Oscar Isaac deserved more time (but has the best line of the bunch). The film both looks and sounds great.
