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.
August 27, 2018
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.
August 24, 2018
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.

August 6, 2018
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.
June 13, 2018
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.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens may not have provided me with an artistic experience, but it did maintain my interest in the rest of the trilogy, and there is something to be said for that.

Abrams has done a lot more than rebirth this series, he has renewed it with hope for the future

November 8, 2017
The storytelling is top notch. It's a carefully-crafted dance of nuance that balances a bit of everything.

October 25, 2017
It succeeds by managing to be spectacular, thrilling and, as Star Wars past meets Star Wars present and future, unexpectedly moving, too.

The final product is that The Force Awakens is emotionally satisfying, but you kind of have to play dumb to get along with it. It's a good movie-a really good one, on the surface level-but it falls just short of great.
September 21, 2017
Abrams seems far more intent on delivering on the promise of the originals as rousing space Westerns where good and evil stood opposite one another and dared the other side to blink.
