“This could easily have been a mess, but in nearly every way that the film could have gone wrong, it doesn’t. ‘The Force Awakens’ finds just the right path through reverence and respect to find invention, ushering a new generation into its galaxy of iconic visuals and reliable heroes by raising the epic stakes, while keeping the narrative, for the most part, focused and propulsive.” – Vanity Fair, Richard Lawson.
And here’s another one from Ann Hornaday of The Washington Post:
“Filled with incident, movement and speed, dusted with light layers of tarnished ‘used future’ grim, it captures the kinetic energy that made the first film, from 1977, such a revelation to filmgoers who marvelled at Lucas’s mashup of B movies, Saturday-morning serials, Japanese historical epics and mythic heft.”
With such awesome reviews, there’s nothing to expect but really an epic return of one of the most loved franchise in the world of movies. Enter the galactic universe once again with “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
