Having the presence and dramatic lineage of three characters the Prequels weren't afforded the luxury of accessing (Han, Leia and Luke) adds some gravitas to proceedings.

J.J. Abrams is the right choice to helm this sacred film franchise and present a whole new litany of continuing adventurous narratives for a new generation of 'Star Wars' personalities dipping their tenacious toes into the force of goodness

The Force Awakens isn't the best film of the year but it certainly is one of the best based purely on entertainment value.

It was never going to be easy. Following up the original Star Wars trilogy was a difficult task for its creator George Lucas and his prequel trilogy was met with a lot of criticism and backlash.

The nostalgia factor ... is done with great poignancy, adding the emotional beats the film needed to be accepted by the old guard.

A key moment... has all the poignancy of discovering an old toy in the attic-or in this case, in the middle of a desert-and finding not only that it still works, but it has a role in saving the universe.

It's a grand adventure that illustrates how some things might stay the same, but other things can always, always change for the better.
August 27, 2018
The same vague, mystical wonder - accompanied by the twittering flutes of John Williams - fills the screen that ran imaginations wild in the '70s.

There's everything you want in a Star Wars film here and fans of the original will not be disappointed.
August 22, 2018
J.J. Abrams has succeeded where George Lucas failed: He has remembered what made Star Wars good in the first place.
August 22, 2018
Incorporating old and new concepts and characters together blends wonderfully. The style feels like George Lucas' golden touch.

It's both nostalgic and fresh, a tender homage to, especially, the initial Star Wars ("Episode IV: A New Hope"), as well as a bridge to help those of us stuck in the splendor of Hoth edge into the future.

What crystallizes the film, especially for veterans of the Star Wars franchise is the sense of history and consequence from the last film in the storyline.
June 12, 2018
A truly wonderful movie-one worthy of its years-long hype and the Star Wars name itself.
March 16, 2018
The Star Wars film we needed (a palate cleanser). Funny, full of action and lots of feels, this new entry achieves great balance between nostalgia and novelty. [Full review in Spanish]

The film's political resonances are as mutable - and as muddled - as those of its predecessors.
March 5, 2018
The Force Awakens is so crammed full of fun stuff it's like an economy-sized jar of Prego.
March 2, 2018
If you were worried that this movie was going to be like the prequels, or Star Wars: Into Darkness, do not worry. It captures the heart, it captures the soul, it captures everything that you liked about Star Wars growing up.
January 23, 2018
This movie carries so much magic.
