Wow! I saw it! I saw it! I was taking part in that historic week, that Star Wars is coming back. Awesome movie! AWESOME MOVIE!!! Okay, so I would hope that you got a chance to see it by now, but if not, please do not proceed with reading this article. THERE WILL BE SPOILERS AHEAD!!! Keep reading at your own risk, although I really would recommend that you watch the movie first.
So, now more squabbling, let’s get straight into into it. First of all, it really is a great movie. Of course, it’s not as good as the originals, but it’s pretty good. I would rate it 9.5 out of 10. I love how they still have roles for the original characters, despite their age. And personally, I am pretty glad that [spoiler alert] Han Solo died. I mean, Harry Ford was quite old anyway ans since Han was the epic pilot/action-man in the gang, it was not a bad decision to replace him with Finn and Rey.
Next up, the stormtroopers finally play a part in the story. They were always just the men in armour that everybody had fun of because they could never hit a target. Also we never felt sorry for them before, but now we really know where all of them came from. They were normal people taken from their family at a young age only to be trained and brain washed by the empire. Sound similiar? It should! This adds a whole bunch of controversy, because that’s pretty much what the Jedi do as well. Maybe apart from the whole brain wash thing. It’s great to see that the stormtroopers are actually causing chaos now.
Now, for the main reveal of the movie [spoiler alert] Kylo Ren is Han and Leia’s son!?!? Awesome! So it really does rhyme with the orginal. It’s all the other way around. First a Jedi turned evil has a son who is a hero and then a smuggler turned into a hero has a son who is evil. But I don’t think that this masked lunatic with big anger issues got enough screen time. That’s just my opinion. Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! I’m afraid that there is so much that I want to talk to you about concerning this epic film, but this pie is already too long. So thank you for staying here to read my thoughts on the movie and I really want to know what you thought of it. Thank you for reading! 😉
