Finally let's talk about the most anticipated movies of the years before 2015! But first we need to warn you that we will avoid spoilers as much as possible and not get into the plot of the movie so as not to spoil the surprise of those who still want to see the movie without any information about the story. That said, let's talk about Star Wars!
Directed by J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Force Awakens takes place 30 years after the events of Episode VI - Returns of the Jedi. But if you haven't seen any of the franchise's predecessor movies, don't worry, the movie is not a straightforward episode of Episode VI.
The first thing that needs to be said about Star Wars: The Force Awakens is that it takes away the uneasiness caused by George Lucas's last trilogy in the 2000s. because we are talking about a film directed by the already revered director JJ Abrams.
By the way we have to stand up for what J.J did with Star Wars. From the first interview he gave about the movie, his passion for the Star Wars universe was noticeable. He is really a fan, and so he has taken great care in everything in the movie, from casting, to scenery, soundtrack and in some way to the script. We will talk in more detail about each of these. Watch now the movie and find out for yourself if it's worth it.
Let's start by talking about the cast, which from the first images were very assertive. In addition to the return of Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher as Han Solo and Leia, respectively, we have the introduction of some new characters, starting with Finn, played by John Boyega. Finn is one of the most entertaining characters in the entire franchise since the first movie. Boyh Boyega can impress a strong personality, sometimes dubious but always very sincere. He moves between a brave soldier and an insecure warrior, and you can see that in the trailers. Finn puts us inside the movie as a fan, a young man who heard all those stories of Jedis, Force and Saber, but had not yet experienced it all. His glimpse of that universe presented to him echoes in the younger viewer who had not yet experienced Star Wars in theaters.
Soon we are introduced to the great revelation of the movie, perhaps of the year. Daisy Ridley is Rey, a lonely junk who along with Finn lead the whole story. Rey is perhaps the best character in the movie, and not only because she is a female protagonist, but because she purely represents a person just introduced to that rich universe. She has a look of wonder, of total respect for all that. The chemistry between her and Finn is extremely rich and works perfectly. Watch online the movie and you'll understand.
While Finn is a more fearful and incredulous character, Rey is a representation of the adventurous and upbeat spirit of Star Wars. The body posture, tone of voice and the look that actress Daisy Ridley imposes on the character conveys a lot of security and control of the situation.
Another new character introduced is Poe Dameron, played by Oscar Isaac. Here unfortunately we have a little used character, but when it is required it fulfills its role well. And we also have what for me was the best thing in the movie. The BB-8!
This ball-shaped droid is amazing. He is fun, functional, participative, believable and very, very charismatic. Every scene with him is very interesting and fun. A curiosity is that because it has no speech function, it expresses itself by noise, like R2D2, and by gestures with the head. And to make it as believable as possible, comedians were hired as consultants on how to emulate comic feelings through gestures and noise. And the result is impeccable! Everyone who comes to this droid right away loves him.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is undoubtedly a great movie, fun, humorous and action-packed, but it lacks an unpredictable and predictable script.
