More Reviews:
  • Rotten Tomatoes - Scored 97% (As of Dec 16th) - Critics Consensus: Packed with action and populated by both familiar faces and fresh blood, The Force Awakens successfully recalls the series' former glory while injecting it with renewed energy.
  • Hollywood Reporter -Todd McCarthy- 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Review: A Blast of Energy For the Franchise 
  • Newark Star-Ledger - Stephen Whitty - The Force is strong in this one
  • Forbes - Mark Hughes - Star Wars has returned to us again, and it brings us a wonderful gift: a brand new chapter, mixing old and new elements, original and new cast, in [an] amazing picture.
  • Forbes - Scott Mendelson - It is not a little disheartening to see this new 'Star Wars' installment not blazing its own path but rather chasing its tail and rehashing its former glories for our approval.
  • Guardian - Jordan Hoffman - Its script is ludicrous, riddled with coincidences and a fealty to existing text that a less forgiving person might call lazy. Yet I can't wait to see it again.
