Where do I even begin? The Force Awakens is set 30 years after the defeat of Darth Vader with the Universe being split, turning the Rebel Alliance into the Resistance while the Empire becoming the First Order respectively. Both parties are trying to locate the last remaining Jedi, Luke Skywalker, one to destroy him while another for him to lead. His location map is hidden a BB8 droid which falls into the hands of scavenger by the name of Rey who stumbles upon Finn at the Planet Jakku. Together they chance upon Han Solo and Chewbacca after taking a ride on Millennium Falcon. All of them then travel to Takodana to meet Maz Kanata where Rey discovers Skywalker’s lightsabre. Soon after Kylo Ren attacks Takodana and take Rey along with him. Han, Chewbacca, Finn and BB-8 arrive at the Resistance base on D'Qar, where they plan a counter attack against First Order. All hell breaks loose with a lot new discovery being made. The struggle faced by Kylo Ren, Rey figuring out her Force, Han Solo’s confrontation with his son and his fate. (jeng jeng jeng). Who will make it out alive? Can the Resistance withstand First Order’s new deadly weapon? And the ultimate question…WHERE IS LUKE SKYWALKER?

Holly heck…talk about a revival! The Force Awakens sure did bring back memories with a mix of former and new cast being added. With the usual suspect of Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Chewie and the older droids still hold their candle. The addition of Daisy, John, Adam and tonnes of fresh face gives Star Wars a breath of fresh air. The storyline managed to continue where it left off whilst moving towards a new direction. The special effects only got better with time, the intergalactic music score, the cinematography is nothing short of amazing. J.J. Abrams did justice and will be awarded handsomely no doubt.
|Run Rey Runnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn|
I’m not a big fan of Star Wars but this new resurgence did peak my interest and I must say, I’m not disappointed one bit. If anything, it only stirred my curiosity even more to find out what is in store for the future. By the time I finish writing this review, Star Wars will be making cinema history. Rightfully so since this long awaited flick is definitely worth every penny spent making it.
