Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens User Review

    Star Wars is back... May the Force be with you.
    Review of Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens movie by sounddog, Dec 17, 2015.
    Great mix of emotions but somewhat "safe" in its story in that there is nothing really new (IMO). Feels more of a reboot than continuing George's story. Can definitely see where JJ is going next with the trilogy.

    Generally good "realistic" effects without too much obvious GCI; watched in 2D and personally I have little interest in OTT 3D effects anyway. Can't comment too much on the production values and audio / visual quality as was in the local flea pit at midnight - decided to watch it there ASAP with likely a repeat viewing in IMAX probably in 3D sometime over the Christmas / New Year fortnight.

    So is the Force truly with JJ Abrams? Well I Enjoyed it a lot though, don't think it is my favourite / best film of the year; not even my favourite Science Fiction film of the year. I'm not sure its a 5 star film.

    Undoubtedly will break all box office records.

    Pros

    • Star Wars is back.
    • It's not "The Phantom Menace".

    Cons

    • I'm not 10 watching Star Wars for the first time.

    Verdict
