I think it's pretty good too. I wasn't that keen on 1,2,3 the computer generated stuff was over the top for me. While the new offering has plenty, it's just not as over the top.'Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens' ... a good 8/10.
I'm not "into" Star Wars. I don't think I've even seen the other three (the later, first three). I saw 'Star Wars' back in the day and 'Empire Strikes Back', possibly seen ' Return of the Jedi' but can't remember.
Anyway, 'The Force Awakens' is a fun romp. As a straight-up film it works. It's got all the elements of a decent Sci-Fi film coupled with some drama. As part of an epic, it's a clever handover - here are some new folks, here are the old folks, look how washed up they are and look how the new folks are sliding into position. Yeah, it worked.
I likened it to Ballet, how the older dancers hold non-dancing roles, like the King, the Queen, that sort of thing. They're on stage, but it's the younger dancers that hold the key roles. The old folks were all there in the film, just not holding the main roles. Long cameos, if you like.
So, all handed over ... I guess there's be a good few more to come.
Enjoyed. And actually, it perked my interest to watch the others.
