Disney seems to have gotten the correct formula when it comes to creating both blockbuster successes and failures as Star Wars: The Force Awakens Hyperdrives it's ways into the record books. Never underestimate the power of the force or in this case the power of the movie goer as Star Wars scores big with not only die hard fans but with also casual movie goers.
Never letting up on the pace the film started off with the introduction of Resistance pilot Poe Dameron as he is on his quest of locating information that is crucial to turning the tide in their war with the First Order, the new bad guys of the franchise. From there on we met Finn (John Boyega) a now Rogue Storm Trooper who some how caught a conscience after the Evil Sith Apprentice Kylo Ren decided to massacre a village in search of the information that might lead to the whereabouts of Luke Skywalker. More coincidence follows after a daring escape Finn meets upon Rey (Daisy Ridley) a beautiful and charismatic space scavenger who so happenly found the one droid in the entire galaxy that carries the information that's being so hard sought by both the Resistance and the Empire. Much like the original first movie A New Hope, The Force Awakens caries quite a few similarities when it comes to plot and boy are those similarities evident. But who cares though, that movie was made 39 years ago right?
Picking the movie apart one would most definitely see how lazy and forced the story line was, truthfully it absolutely made no sense, unless to say for instance the entire journey was preordained in some magical scripture, that defined each action took by each character. Faith or the force, I absolutely don't care at this moment as the movie itself was enjoyable. It was great seeing Harrison Ford reclaim his role as Han Solo, the name that I have so many times used to describe my ever so mundane love life : ) " Fight as much as I could, I could not help but enjoy this movie, from the humor to the action, the CGI, the character motivation and development, the whole nostalgia feel. It was absolutely worth every penny spent, In probably won't spend more money to see it in theaters again but I most definitely will look forward to seeing it again or probably cable or Netflix.
Mywatchlinks gives Star Wars: The Force Awakens 4 out of 5 Stars. If you don't look to hard into it, it's a pretty damn good movie, it won't make you a fan but it might help you kill around 2 hours.
