Hopefully by now everyone has seen the new Star Wars movie. I thought this was a very good movie. I say good because I think anyone that grew up with the original 3, those three will never be dwarfed by any other movie. I love how they meshed the old and the new in this movie. They let us know that the original characters were phasing out and the new characters would be taking over. The longest movie of the Star Wars franchise is one that is packed with lots of action, some corny but funny one liners, and a few twists that even the biggest fan didn’t see coming. By the end of the movie though very few questions were answered about how all the new characters fit together.
They didn’t reveal who Snoke was, but I was wondering if he was Starkiller since they were on Starkiller base in episode 7. Then there was the Rey and Kylo connection. Even though Snoke brought their minds together, in the end they worked together to defeat Snoke, so is there a connection between the 2. Maybe brother and sister, or cousins? Then you have Finn and Poe, where do they fit into the galaxy, is it all dumb luck they came together? I didn’t think there was any great light saber battles such as Luke and Vader in the Return of the Jedi where Luke’s passion for his newly discovered sister was electrified by an awesome score from John Williams.
There certainly was not a classic battle such as when Yoda unexpectedly went all ballistic on Count Dooku. There was plenty of action though such as Luke outwitting Kylo Ren and saving the whole resistance where an intense battle between the First order and one single person ends with an epic use of the force. Over all I think they did a great job and they left a great deal of mystery so that episode 9 is shaping up to be epic and perhaps the best Star Wars movie to date for the young and the old crowd.
