Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens
Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, marketed as Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is the seventh film in the Star Wars saga and the first in the Star Wars sequel trilogy. The film was directed by J.J. Abrams; co-written by Abrams, Lawrence Kasdan, and Michael Arndt; and produced by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and Bad Robot Productions. The film stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels and Peter Mayhew reprising their original roles. The original actors are joined by a host of new actors including Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Oscar Isaac, among many others.
Thirty years after the defeat of the Empire, Luke Skywalker has vanished and a new threat has risen: The First Order, led by the mysterious Supreme Leader Snoke and his dark side enforcer, Kylo Ren. General Leia Organa’s military force, the Resistance — and unlikely heroes brought together by fate — are the galaxy’s only hope at thwarting a new reign of evil.

Visionary director J.J. Abrams brings to life the motion picture event of a generation. As Kylo Ren and the sinister First Order rise from the ashes of the Empire, Luke Skywalker is missing when the galaxy needs him most. It's up to Rey, a desert scavenger, and Finn, a defecting stormtrooper, to join forces with Han Solo and Chewbacca in a desperate search for the one hope of restoring peace to the galaxy.
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The basic problem is that it is just the first Star War movie rehashed. Instead of the Empire the First Order is now the bad guy. Instead of the young and inexperienced Luke Skywalker there’s Rey played by Daisy Ridley. Instead of Darth Vader there is Kylo Ren in some horrible casting played by Adam Driver Vader’s grandson. Instead of the desert planet of Tatooine there’s the desert planet of Jakku. Instead of the movie starting with Princess Leia being captured by the bad guys but not before she puts some important information for the rebels inside a little robot that escapes, it’s pilot Poe Dameron played by Oscar Isaac that’s caught and puts data into his bot BB-8 that escapes. And of course the bot is found by the hero aka Skywalker who is Rey in this film, and the information leads to an old and wise Jedi Knight Obi Wan in the original and Skywalker in this version. Finally, what is a Star Wars flick without a Death Star, this time called Starkiller Base. That means you can guess how this ends. It’s like the writers and director had no respect for the audience at all, and didn’t want to spend the time coming up with an original story.
The only really good new twist to the film was the arrival of Han Solo played by Harrison Ford and Chewbacca played by Peter Mayhew because they added some levity to the story. Otherwise just watch Star Wars A New Hope. It’s a far better movie.
The Force Awakens is superior to the Prequels/Anakin Skywalker Arch because it invests in the characters ans builds on tjeir realtionahips realistically, similar to A New Hope: common objective, common enemy, team work anx etc oppose to the Prequels more complex political alliances, and emphasis on Zoroastrian and Dualist ideologies. The Force Awakens is pure fun, with enough lore and wonder to keep it from being campy or a total knock off.
In particular I applaud J.J. Abrams for his handling of Kylo Ren as a villain. He isn’t a Vader clone or Darth Maul cult creating character, he is the antithisis, unsurd of himself and conflicted, his insecurity and tryingvto overshadow it with Dark Side prowess makes him actuslly more relatable than the dogmaticism of Darth Vader. Kylo Ren is a Sith for a new generatiok, that no doubt may carry the same conflict inside.
Rey who has been labeled a Mary Sue, is acruslly refreshing. Men have had plenty of Jedi and Force affilates to choose from: Luke Skywalker, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, and maby more; girls and women have only ad Aayla Secura and Ahsoka Tano for female Jedi and they are aliens not humans like Rey. [Legends fans have had Bastila Shan and Mara Jade Skywalker for major human female Jedi].
Finn and Poe both are welcome heroes, one a former stormtrooper and the other a resistance pilot. Their dialogue during their escape from The First Order at the beginning of the Force Awakens always gives me a good chuckle.
I want to seal this review by stating I am a Legends/EU die hard who knows Dash Rendar, Exar-Kun, Ulic-Quodroma, Mara Jade, Revan, Darth Plagueis, Prince Xinor, the Jed’Daii (proto-Jedi tribes), Ashla and Bogan (Light and Dark Side), Force Grip is a grey power (light or dark depending on who you are using it on), and so much more. I have been following the Legends, called Expanded Universe when I was young, and I enjot the Force Awakens.
Really well written and paced. Seems to fix in the timeline accurately and has all the elements you seek from a Star Wars movie. Wonderful vistas, intense and exciting when it should be and fun for anyone over 10 years old.
Like all used items, I wait for a while to see the price averages and when I see a good deal I jump on it. Once you have it, and if you're a sci-fi fan, it'll be on your shelf forever and will be viewed over and over with something new that you missed each time. Buy w confidence.
I also have been on love with 3d since my youth. I bought a 3d tv and blu ray years ago, but the Star Wars series was not done in 3d...until The Force Awakens. No matter how many times I'd seen the movie, adding the full, Rich 3d made it come alive. The sound is rich and vibrant with the epic John Williams sound track.
The behind the scenes features are informative and entertaining for those who love to know how it's done and what all goes into the production of the film.
Even the case is a work of art. From its attractive, 3d artwork on the cover to the beautifully collectors item inserts, this set seems like it should be far more expensive than it actually is.
Whether you loved the film or are a critic, the power of the production on this product is admirable. Well done, folks. Well done.

Big screen HD tv/3d BluRay combination really demonstrated:-
1. the superior quality of the original film, shot at least partly on true 70mm film. Sharp with good colour (not one of those washed out grey colour films where everyone looks like they need a blood transfusion)
2. the 3d effects are superb and definitely worth the extra price over 2d version.
3. great presentation of the sound effects, dialogue and the music.
there are extras included and a nice 3d image on the box which are all worth having to some extent, but it was the 3d that really "stood out" for me
Mild spoiler: Somewhat disappointing that the story line had to stick the old proven-concept of A New Hope, Return of the Jedi and The Phantom Menace where the enemy base had to be blown up in the ending scenes.
Our 8-year old daughter who is a big fan of the series, liked the movie the lightsaber action in particular and the new hero Rey.
We buy the 3D version of movies where possible. This 3D version at home on our fairly high-end OLED screen is excellent and bright.
Sans être absolu je suis néanmoins fan de la saga Star wars, et j'ai assez de mal avec l'ouverture de cette nouvelle trilogie labellisée Disney.
Je suis allé me rendre compte par moi-même lors de la sortie au cinéma du Réveil de la force - en évitant autant que possible de lire ou écouter ce que les autres (amis, critiques) - ce que valait ce nouvel espoir...
Préférant les originaux IV V VI, je fais parti de ceux qui ont aimé aussi la série I II III, réalisée par Lucas des années plus tard, permettant de découvrir la genèse de l'histoire et de Darth Vader.
Et le sentiment que ce nouveau triptyque me laisse est plus que mitigé. Il souffre de la même dérive que d'autres films sortis ces dernières années, une volonté d'aller trop vite à l'essentiel pour magnifier le superficiel.
En résulte une héroïne, que l'actrice tente d'incarner de son mieux, qui est de la même façon que la génération Y et Z, pourvue d'un don de préscience. Et sur l'espace du film, de façon parfaitement autodidacte elle parvient à maîtriser toutes les techniques des Jedis, qui avant se perdaient les pauvres dans un long apprentissages...
En découle pour moi un sentiment d'inachevé, pas achevé du tout même.
Et tout est traité de cette façon dakmns ce film, pour les besoins du scénario et de la mise en place de l'intrigue, Rey ne s'est jamais servi d'un sabre laser, mais il faut un combat épique avec le boss final, alors pas grave, elle devient experte spontanément. Le super méchant, qui a dans cet opus le charisme d'un beignet, tue Han Solo afin de montrer au public qu'il est bien irrémédiablement passé dans le côté obscur.
Il fallait une étoile de la mort en référence aux anciens films, on en crée une- toujours avec les mêmes travers Hollywoodiens actuels - à grand coup de protéines et de salle de muscu, version kingsize fait la taille d'une planète et absorbe un soleil entier... non trop c'est trop, je passe sur la suspension de crédulité qui n'en tient plus... tout le monde devrait être écrasé au sol par l'augmentation de la gravité provoquée par l'absorption de cette énorme masse... bref, il n'y a pas plus de son dans l espace et de communication instantanée possible vers l'autre bout de la galaxie mais cela fait partie du jeu auquel on adhère pour rentrer dans cet univers space Opéra.
Cet épisode semble vouloir faire le pari de résumer les épisodes précédents, montrer aux fans inconditionnels qu'on a pas oublié d'où vient la saga et les héros de la première heure (luke, anakin), et aussi de s'en débarrasser, en faire la rupture, mais dans un film de 2h. Résultat tout est survolé et finalement bâclé.
Heureusement que John Williams à résigné pour réaliser certains titres musicaux, apportant un peu du génie et de la magie qu'il a insufflé aux autres opus.
Dans la série des nouveau star wars, je suis beaucoup plus convaincu par Rogue One, qui a su capté l'univers graphique et épique de l'histoire dans lequel il vient s'intercaler, tout en se créant son propre style, suivant sa propre route. Il est vrai que ce film là n'a pas pour but de s'inscrire dans la légende de la famille skywalker, de sa création à sa résurrection.
A very enjoyable movie which set up things really well with the introduction of Supreme Leader Snoke as the new master villain. After this good initial establishing movie, the trilogy seem to get messy and completely lose its way. Really did waste all the good developing work Force Awakens had accomplished.
Avoid the force awakens, in fact skip the entire new trilogy and solo. Save your time and money and buy Rogue One instead.
Action packed all the way through, some funny one liners.
The newer versions of the film have JJ Abrams commentary and the overall ascetic of the product is very nice with good quality feel all around.
More like a 12" vinyl record sleeve, than a plastic DVD/Bluray case.
The film itself is one of the best and a must for any star wars fan.
