Star Wars : the Force Awakens

 Out of curiosity I went on to the hype to catch the opening screening of Star Wars episode VII 
*Bewarned slight spoilers*

While waiting for the screening to start, manage to get chew bak kua figurine and renew my MBO member card with BB-8 design.

Anyway on with the show! Opening crawl which explains the continuity of story after return of the Jedi. Introduced an ace pilot from the resistance trying to find Luke sky walker whereabouts but as the story unfolds, more menacing plans from the dark side is at toll. Friendships made, deaths, flying storm troopers, pewpew, space fights, soapy emotional climatic , anti climatic scene, and lots of episode 4, 5 ,6 recyclable reference plot.

 Introduction two main chars in the movie which is Rey and FN-2187, both come from different background but I would love to see how they build up on FN-2187 story. Was rooting for him to take on the lead but sadly the character development reached to its cliffhanger and the near end of the movie. Hopefully we get to see him more in action on Episode VIII. As for the counterpart, Rey is not that much of a new chemistry in the Star Wars world, since taking striking history resemblance background as of Anakin Skywalker of torn childhood. I don't feel connected much with the character since she is like jack of all trades, know it all tough girl power player in this movie.

Another not so great detail was explaining the bad guy Kylo Ren/Ben, I felt the character development was okay, but could used a little more juice of his background, there were some flashbacks however throw audience like early in the movie about Mr. Indiana Jones was his father was so anti climatic in Star Wars movie history. Hope he does get a standalone movie to explain how he came to be Kylo Ren.

Visual effects is magnificently stunning, the musical score  brings back nostalgia where I was watching Laser Disc in a home room theater at Juwanda's House during the good old days. Some parts gave me goosebumps just from the music. I must say very excellent.

Alot of mayhem, just like how JJ.Abrams previous Sci-Fi show. Sometimes action scenes were pretty fast for viewers and not knowing what to see. However there is this pull back moment to get viewer in check while watching stormtroopers being ragdolls. The saber duel was kinda subpar but hey both of the side are still new to the force anyway. 

Overall its a good movie, but was sadly disappointing with the mediocre movie plot. They could follow through FN-2187 and have new breed of Jedi but sadly they played safe and stick to Star wars original metaphor. Rating 7.5/10 The force may not really be in this episode yet...
