Elevator Pitch A new version of the old film, with a villain as evil as Darth Vader, focusing on the search for a missing Luke Skywalker, both by the heroes and the scary First Order, who have taken over from the Empire.
Content A lot of aerial dogfights, battles between ground forces using lasers and many explosions. People die! Quote from imdb “several characters are eaten by multi-tentacled beasts”.
A View I had forgotten that I have never been a fan of Star Wars, but the hype dragged me along. In the end I found the many types of non-humans “in a galaxy far away” irritating but I liked a couple of things – the sets, which were awesome (literally) and  the two dents in Kylo Ren’s mask. Or is that three things?
