Movie Review: Star Wars: The Force Awakens *****

movie star wars the force awakensStar Wars: The Force Awakens is the latest edition of the series of George Lucas films. This one is produced by Disney–and it shows. The evil space people are trying to dominate the Galaxy. The good space people are trying to stop them. Familiar characters join new characters to fight for survival.

I am not a Star Wars fan, but this looked like a blockbuster, so I went. I am familiar with the characters from the original movie, so I have some back story about Han Solo and the Force. This is a fantasy movie, not science fiction. Storm troopers wear armored uniforms that do not protect them from anything. Han Solo and friends run around in regular clothes and seem invincible. New characters are introduced to continue the series for future episodes, as the original cast is getting older. I missed all the movies since the original and was able to follow the plot just fine. Every familiar character was awesome–the new characters were, too. I went opening weekend to a sold out show and enjoyed it from start to finish. Fun film for the whole family. Excellent entertainment. Nominated for several technical Academy Awards. 5 out of 5 stars.
