Star Wars: The Force Awakens
The blurb:Three decades after the defeat of the Galactic Empire, a new threat arises. The First Order attempts to rule the galaxy and only a ragtag group of heroes can stop them, along with the help of the Resistance.

What did I think?The Force Awakens is everything we’ve come to love about Star Wars. It’s big, it’s epic, it’s spectacular. And underneath, there’s actually a big heart to it all. You get a sense from watching it, that it was made by true fans of the series.
The good guys are very likable, I thought the relationship between Ray and Finn worked out very well. It gave the film it’s emotional anchor.
The villains are pretty much what you would expect, but the filmmakers threw in a few twists about them that were interesting.
Add some terrific battle sequences, and you get a very welcome return to the greatness of Star Wars. Go and see it (but you already know you will). Take a friend or a family member. You’ll have a great time. Because that’s what these films are about when it comes down to it.
Overall, Force Awakens shows off some snazzy visual effects combined with a compelling story and great characters. It won’t disappoint.
