Star Wars The Force Awakens: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

We attended the Philippine Premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens last Tuesday night at IMAX SM Megamall. The theater is jam-packed with celebrities, cosplayers, and Star Wars fans who are really excited to see the Force Awakens. We are lucky enough to be a part of it and yes, it was a remarkable experience.

Let me start by saying that I am not a Star Wars fanatic. I've seen three out of the first six films (Episode I, IV and V) before this latest installment from J.J. Abrams. The franchise lives on with the characters from the past backing up the young ones in creating the nostalgic effect and still paying homage to the classic entries. I never expected that I can also be hooked like everyone else by just watching Episode 7. Guess, I need to watch the marathon to fully understand the entire saga.

The film is simply exceptional from the very beginning. Every frame generates a lot of thrills, especially to the fans who followed this series through thick and thin. We've got the original cast with Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill returning plus everyone's favorite "The Millenium Falcon." We also forgot to mention the Chewbacca and Han Solo connection that brought a lot of fun with their jokes. 

The newbies were all a gem with Daisy Ridley taking the new face of this franchise. She just simply holds the entire thing together and plays her character with all her heart plus her charming personality. John Boyega also gave out an ecstatic performance while Adam Driver comes up with the energy to light up the new villain. Oscar Isaac is a pretty cool addition and who would love to take home the new droid BB-8?

Overall, Star Wars The Force Awakens is all tremendously fun. We now understand what the hype is all about and why a lot of people are hooked and dying to see this film. I am still not a Star Wars Fan, but I am starting to be one after watching this sick film.
