Anyone who believes that The Force Awakens was a good movie is either IN DENIAL or is a PAID DISNEY SHILL.
What I saw today was UN-AMERICAN. Absolutely unacceptable. In every possible way. I do not recommend going to see it. I wish I could have my money back.
All these good reviews you're seeing are PAID SHILLS. Don't listen to them.
---SPOILER ALERT AHEAD---
So we start out on this Planet called Jakku(totally not Tatooine) where we have one of the top rebel pilots on a secret mission to find information which will lead them to where Luke Skywalker is hiding. Because for some reason, instead of leading the fight against the last remnants of the Empire, Luke has decided to pull a Yoda and go sit on a planet and think about how butthurt he is.
Anyway, this pilot named Poe manages to get a hold of the secret information on where Luke is hiding, which doesn't make much sense because why would Luke leave a map of where he's going? Anyway, suddenly Kylo Ren appears to stop Poe and retrieve the data on Luke.
I'm going to point out here, that Kylo Ren made an incredible badass entrance. He uses the force to suddenly stop a blaster bolt in MID-AIR and almost freezes time in this little area. It was so cool, and when he walks away the blaster-bolt finally unfreezes, which showcases a level of force-power that completely disappears in the later half of the movie. But more on that in a bit.
Before Kylo Ren captures Poe, we see him give a little data chip to the orange ball-droid. Totally not ripping off the time R2-D2 and C3PO had to traverse a desert and hopefully run into someone that would help them.
Meanwhile, Finn is a Stormtrooper who randomly and for little reason whatsoever breaks all the indoctrination he has gone through and decides to betray his programming and help Poe escape. They crash land back on not-tatooine and Finn ends up finding Rey who has conveniently found the orange balldroid.
They almost immediately SEEM to fall in love the way Anna fell in love with that random Prince in Frozen, she trusts for absolutely no reason that Finn is who he says he is and they decide to go off and save the Galaxy together, but OH NO the Empire is after them, so they randomly find the Millennium Falcon which just happens to be there for no reason at all.
They quickly fly away and have a fight with some Tie Fighters and this is where things get weird.
Han Solo and Chewbacca manage to find them, and their entrance is really very sudden and explained with a few lines about how they've been looking for the Millennium falcon for a while. Anyway, before we know it, a bunch of space pirates with scottish accents or whatever have suddenly boarded their ship, and it's not clear how they managed to board. But it doesn't matter because the accidentally freed monsters end up killing all the pirates and they escape in the Millennium Falcon.
Meanwhile we have it casually announced in a meeting between Kylo Ren and Snoke that Kylo Ren is Han Solo's son, which makes me feel nothing because everything is just so convoluted at this point that I'm having trouble following(who is snoke anyway, why does he look like Voldemort and why should we care about him?)
Then we get back to the rebel base and we get some decent scenes where Leia and Han talk, but it's also really weird because we now know that they have this son who we have NO knowledge about that turned to the Dark Side, and now they're talking about him as if this has been going on for a while.
It's also announced that there's a big mega-death star weapon, but that's okay because it, like all the other death star weapons it has an easily exploitable weakness.
So Han Solo, Finn and Rey go to lower the shields.
and who lowers the shields for them?
Brienne of Tarth commander of stormtroopers does nothing the whole movie and then betrays her army by taking down shield generator.
Pisses me off and it should piss you off too.
Then I get to watch Kylo Ren kill Han Solo, at this point I felt nothing so I don't know what to tell you. There was hardly any emotion or dedication, so I could only hate Kylo, I just don't know.
Then we see Kylo Ren, who had earlier frozen a blaster bolt and displayed immense power, get almost get beaten by a guy who has never wielded a lightsaber in his life, and has absolutely no skill with use in the force.
Then he gets his ass beat by Rey, who despite discovering some of her force power ALSO has absolutely no skill or knowledge of how to wield a lightsaber, and struggled to use a blaster just a couple hours prior.
Last minute destruction of mega-death star occurs, and then we see Rey make her way to find Luke.
I should have been mourning Hans death at this point still but oh well. It doesn't matter.
None'a this matters.
