Fresh Reviews for “Star Wars The Force Awakens”
Despite the copious servings of tragic threats and good feelings, the production sinks under the weight of its emotional calculation.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens dazzles audiences with a surface of nostalgic fun made shiny new-but beneath that mask, if you care to notice it, lurks an abyss of futility.
The spectacular ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ provides a new hope for future generations of moviegoers.
A spectacular film that will keep the franchise going for many years to come. [Full review in Spanish]
Abrams understands that a great Star Wars movie is not only about the whiz-bang external stuff, but also about the soul in its classic riff on the eternal struggle between the sides of light and dark (good vs evil).
Technically a reboot from the original 1977 film, J. J. Abrams breathes live back into the franchise, pleasing old fans and creating legions of new ones. I felt like I was 12 years-old again!
It relaunched the franchise in a real majestic way, mixing new characters with the familiar faces of the original trilogy. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review…It has all the spirit of the original saga while also introducing new characters for a new generation. It will make you feel like a kid again. [Full review in Spanish]
[VIDEO ESSAY] This latest installment of fandom’s favorite mongrel pet is a poorly paced MacGuffin-chase plot, ginned up with groan-inducing spoonful doses of pro-war imagery and its attendant rudimentary vocabulary.
Bravo! Ford ignites the movie! He’s the star and jumps right back into the iconic role. Disney brought a princess but it was a bait and switch. They got General Great-Greatma instead.
As a one-off, the movie might seem like a little miracle – a fresh take on nostalgia not too different in tone from last year’s delightful Turbo Kid. But stretched out… a hard crust of cynicism is apparent just beneath the sugar-dusted surface.
as long as the viewer does not need to contend with Jar-Jar Binks or a pod race, any Star Wars film delivers more than a ticket’s worth of entertainment.
