It definitely Star Wars. It's fun, it's action packed, it has heart and is a thoroughly enjoyable film. It's absolutely packed with easter eggs.
My main criticism (apart from the house lights not dimming at the start of the film - thanks Odeon) was how misleading the trailers ended up being. They're not just tighter edits as was the case in TFA, the final battle must have been totally reworked so just as you think you're about to see something from the teasers it's quite jarring to end up with something different.
The very start of the film feels a little clumsy and the team clearly never solved the problem of how to start a non-Episode SW film without the fanfare and crawl.
However, on balance I'm still excited to know that I have tickets to see this again - in IMAX this time and in the dark.
