Add my review

Great entertainment film! A new hope made true.
By Jack Anderson on December 27, 2015
 (6/10)

Even though Star Wars became the very first hugely popular franchise, the number of movies were incredibly small. There were only six films between 1977 and 2015 (before this one). Lovers of Star Wars had to endure the destruction of their beloved saga when George Lucas and Rick McCallum released the infamously bad prequels. I remember very well being in the first showing of Episode I. I then waited years before finally watching Episodes II and III on DVD. I just didn't care anymore. Star Wars was dead and damaged for good. It seems there was no more story to tell.
Then, when Disney bought Star Wars from Lucas and announced that there would be new movies, I wasn't particularly excited, thinking that the next instalment of Star Wars would be a dumb film with a big budget, big but boring special effects and young models being cast and giving totally empty performance without any ounce of charisma. Pretty much like most Marvel superheroes movies ("Thor", "The Avengers", "Captain America", etc.).
Finally, when I heard that J.J. Abrams would direct the film, I didn't have much more hope, as, even though I loved his pilot episode of LOST, didn't appreciate the reboot of the Star Trek franchise one bit. I also didn't like his Mission Impossible movie.
And then, slowly, I started to read that there would be no more overuse of CGI, that special effects would be real again, that there would be real sets instead of blue screens everywhere - the only two sets that George Lucas built in Episodes I to III were either blue screens or green screens.
The first trailer was released, and it felt great again! On purpose, I didn't watch any other trailers nor read any spoiler. I wanted to be surprised by this film.
And boy, was I surprised!

I was in a fully packed movie theater, filled with energy and anticipation. It was on December 16 (two days before its release in the US), that way I would be sure not to be spoiled in the street or by friends or co-workers.
