As everyone would know by now, the 7th film is set years after the last film of the original Star Wars Trilogy.
While I’m not the hugest Star Wars fan, I did find the film really interesting.
One thing I really loved about the film is the cinematography as I found there were a number of beautiful shots throughout the film. Some of the locations were as equally beautiful during the film. I found the scenes in the forest scene when Rey gets taken to be beautiful, the snow scenes, and the last scene when Rey meets Luke Skyewalker on the remote island to be really wonderful and I didn’t want to look away.
I found the storyline in some ways similar to Episode 4 ‘A New Hope’. A main similarity between Episode 4 and Episode 7 is some sort message or clue left in a droid by someone that either has a large part to the story line or has a minor part to the story and that person is eventually reunited with the droid in question.
I love that Carrie Fisher (Leia), Mark Harmill(?- Skyewalker), Harrison Ford (Han Solo) and Peter Mayhill (Chewbacca) returned as their respect characters Princess Leia, Luke Skyewalker, Han Solo and Chewbacca. As predicted from Episodes 4, 5 and 6, Leia and Han Solo got together.
While the original characters were developed enough from the previous films, I’m not sure if the other characters were developed enough for me to feel enough of a certain emotions towards them depending on the situation or whether or not they were a good or bad guy.
Of course the soundtrack was really good with sounds from the original 3 movies as well the prequels,
As the film ended, I was left with a couple of questions. 1) Why was Rey abandoned as a child? 2) Who the heck is Rey’s mum? I get the Luke is her father because he had his fathers light saber and light sabers are passed down to a child and that child is Rey. Meaning Rey is Luke’s daughter but whom did Luke knock up?
Of course with the way the film ended, there has to be at least another movie or two to follow and we’ll have to wait until 2017 when Episode 8 comes out.
