New Delhi, Dec.25 (ANI): The star wars series is back with a bang and is even more action packed. The seventh episode does take you back in time with some of the original cast is seen namely Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) and Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker).
The movie keeps you at the edge of the seat at all times and with it being in 3D it is all the more better. The movie begins with the trademark Star Wars one liner “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away….” The plot of the movie is what follows.
Luke has vanished and there is a new threat to the universe and that is the ‘first order’ which has replaced the empire and representing the dark side of the force is Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), reliving the character of the most iconic villains of cinematic history Darth Vader. Kylo does continue the legacy of Vader as he is seduced by the dark side and is all about evil.
The two people who are trying to help the resistance force are Rey (Daisy) and an ex-stormtrooper Finn (Jon) and they work in tag-team style. They have heard about the jedi and the force and they know who Luke Skywalker is but they don’t know whether it is true or not. It takes Han Solo to say “The Dark Side, the Jedi-it’s true”. Han Solo is still rocking and has still got that swagger and with his fluffy sidekick Chewbacca aboard the falcon it is definitely home for them. The chemistry between Han and Leia still rocks.
Luke disappears when he feels responsible for one of his pupil when he went rogue and feels guilty and decides to hide somewhere in the universe. The whereabouts of Luke is on a map safely with a BB8 droid which steals the thunder from the legendary R2D2..
The light saber battles in this movie are good and the x-wing fighting sequence is also pretty good. Fans of R2D2 will be left disappointed as R2D2’s appearance is very limited.
The movie is a must watch for star wars fans and MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU. (ANI)
