reviews for star wars in
The real Episode Four! From the first few minutes, or even the first few frames, JJ Abrams’s exciting, spectacular and seductively innocent Star Wars: The Force Awakens shows itself a movie in the spirit of the original trilogy, which ended with Return of the Jedi in 1983. (This one takes up the story 30 years later.)
Here are what some of the critics are saying
For the first hour or so of The Force Awakens, director J. J. Abrams gives you everything you hoped for, and even exceeds your expectations.
You feel the tragedy, your jaw will hurt from the excitement, you will be on the edge of your seat trying to guess what happens next. [Full review in Spanish]
The Force Awakens is a glorious reminder of why this is one of the most beloved sagas of all time. [Full review in Spanish]
From the opening crawl to the ending credits, it’s the Star Wars movie we waited decades for, and it sets the stage for even bigger, better and bolder adventures to come.
J.J. Abrams and team brilliantly merge the old and the new into a Star Wars that soars on every level. Han Solo is back but it is Daisy Ridley’s Rey that is the heart of The Force Awakens. She’s a keeper.
This mediatic circus has entertained me moderately, wishing the film would be a little shorter. What can I say? Not really my cup of tea. [Full review in Spanish]
It’s a solid space opera spectacle with enough nostalgia to overpower even the most hard-hearted child of the ’70s and ’80s but it relies a little too much on recycling old plot elements.
