As Kylo Ren and the sinister First Order rise from the ashes of the Empire, Luke Skywalker is missing when the galaxy needs him most. It's up to Rey, a desert scavenger, and Finn, a defecting stormtrooper, to join forces with Han Solo and Chewbacca in a desperate search for the one hope of restoring peace to the galaxy.

A good film that I rather enjoyed. Is it, in essence, a remake of A New Hope? Yes. However, it's still different enough with interesting new characters to make it worth watching. Is it for all Star Wars fans? I don't know. For casual fans though, I'd definitely recommend it.

Formulaic. I have hope for the new characters, however.

Amazing characters, but too similar to Episode IV :( I expected better from J.J. Abrams. A lot better, actually. I feel like he's finally losing his edge as a film director.

Nicely cast, nicely acted.

But hey, Episode VIII: The Last Jedi just came out and it is AWESOME! So different from the rest of the Star Wars movies! Can't wait until the library catalogue acquires it, and I will write an extensive comment on all the good things about it! :)

A different way of telling the same story. Reminded me of the first movie.

Pretty good movie. There are other stories in the Star Wars Expanded Universe to movies on. Such as a Star Wars: The Force Unleashed,Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II and Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic movie. PLEASE LET THIS HAPPEN GEORGE LUCAS

waaaaaaaaaaaaay worse than all the prequels combined.
i'm a huge fan of star wars but all the characters are boring, Rey is a mary sue, Finn could be removed from the movie, the death of Han Solo was seen from a mile away, Rey was made to make star wars have a "strong female character"(who is Leia?), Luke decided to run away and wallow in self pity for messing up once, Kylo is an edgelord, Jakku is discount Tatooine, there's no way that the "First Order" could get funds to turn a planet into a worse deathstar, the movie focuses way too much on comedy and slapstick humor, Leia ignored Chewie in favour of comforting Rey and the worst part of it? SO MUCH CG, we were promised practical effects but all we got were disgusting CG monstrosities.
don't waste the money or the time to watch this.

Watching this in the theater was an incredible experience; it felt like watching Star Wars for the very first time. Seeing it a second time however made me not only feel like I'd seen this movie twice, but that I'd also watched Star Wars for about the 20th time, because it basically is a modernized retelling of Star Wars, just with better graphics and less whining.

this movie was a remake of a new hope. so there's the bad guys...blah blah blah then there's the good guys blah blah blah!! then the good guys blow up the imperial base BOOM! BANG! KA-POW! same as a new hope. still...it's a pretty good movie except for the plot. I think rogue one is a lot better than this movie but that's just my opinion.

Han Solo: This map's not complete. It's just a piece. Ever since Luke disappeared, people have been looking for him.

Rey: Why did he leave?

Han Solo: He was training a new generation of Jedi. One boy, an apprentice, turned against him, destroyed it all. Luke felt responsible. He just walked away from everything.

Finn: Do you know what happened to him?

Han Solo: A lot of rumors. Stories. People that knew him best think he went looking for the first Jedi temple.

Rey: The Jedi were real?

Han Solo: I used to wonder about that myself. Thought it was a bunch of mumbo-jumbo. A magical power holding together good and evil, the dark side and the light. Crazy thing is... it's true. The Force. The Jedi... All of it... It's all true.

Rey: [Trying to use the Force to compel the guard] You will remove these restraints and leave this cell with the door open.
Stormtrooper JB-007: What did you say?
Rey: You will remove these restraints and leave this cell with the door open.
Stormtrooper JB-007: I will tighten these restraints, scavenger scum!
Rey: [Concentrating harder] You will remove these restraints and leave this cell with the door open.
Stormtrooper JB-007: I will remove these restraints and leave this cell with the door open.
[he does so]
Rey: And you will drop your weapon.
Stormtrooper JB-007: And I'll drop my weapon.

Rey: [to Kylo Ren] You... you're afraid... that you will never be as strong as Darth Vader!

Maz Kanata: Han Solo! Where's my boyfriend?
Han Solo: Chewie's working on the ship.
Maz Kanata: I like that Wookiee.

Finn: Hey, Solo. I'm not sure what we're walking into here...
Han Solo: Did you just call me "Solo"?

Chewbacca: [growls]
