Star Wars – The Force Awakens

1 / 5

Yawn. Super dull. Checked my watch a bunch of times.
Put simply, there was nothing new to entertain me. It was all stuff that I had seen before, nothing to engage me in the characters or the plot.
Even the ships, sounds and lasers were exactly the same.

The only highlight was the few interactions between Han and Chewie.

It was put to me that Tron Legacy was the same as Tron… So why the hate on Star Wars and not Legacy…. Fair question, but I think there is enough new stuff that while it has the feel of the old one, it still felt like a new movie. Star Wars just felt like the same stuff over and over again.
Granted, with Tron you have going inside the computer, the grid, light cycles and the portal, but there was a whole bunch of new stuff thrown in around those basic constructs that you were kept engaged.
Star Wars? No. It was death star all over again, same run down the tunnel, same X-wing fighters making the run, on and on. Same, same same.

Long rant done.
