30 years after the defeat of Darth Vader and the Empire, Rey, a scavenger from the planet Jakku, finds a BB-8 droid that knows the whereabouts of the long lost Luke Skywalker. Rey, as well as a rogue stormtrooper and two smugglers, are thrown into the middle of a battle between the Resistance and the daunting legions of the First Order. Written by
Rey continues the tradition of disparaging the Millennium Falcon when she calls it "garbage". In the original trilogy, Luke called the Millennium Falcon a "piece of junk", and Leia referred to it as a "bucket of bolts". See more »
When Finn looks up at the sky while on Takodana, he observes the real time use of the First Order's Starkiller weapon, which is being used against a number of Republic Planets. Han also looks up and sees the planets' outlines in the sky. Given that this weapon was being fired from a different star system (with the star of that system providing the power), there is no way for Finn or Han to be able to observe light from the weapon in real time, as the light source would be many light years away. Also, they are supposedly in a different star system to that of the republic planets that were the target of the weapon, therefore there should have been nothing for our protagonists to see at all.

Lor San Tekka:
This will begin to make things right. I've traveled too far and seen too much to ignore the despair in the galaxy. Without the Jedi, there can be no balance in the Force.
Well, because of you, now we have a chance. The General's been after this for a long time.
Lor San Tekka:
Oh, the General? To me, she is royalty.
Well, she certainly is that.

The Force Awakens is the Seventh Star Wars film directed by J.J. Abrams
and stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, and Harrison Ford.
The film was mass distributed by the Disney Corporation and produced by
Lucasfilm, being labeled as a Sci-Fi Action Adventure. I actually own
the film and would be glad to document my opinions and observations
just for you.
The Force Awakens is set a full generation after the events in Return
of the Jedi. Rey (Daisy Ridley) is a lonely scavenger selling for
scraps for a living on Jakku. On the other side of powers, Finn (John
Boyega) is a storm-trooper looking to escape from the First Order with
the help of Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac). Their fates coerce and try to
take on the First Order run by Kylo Ren (Adam Driver).
Characters in The Force Awakens are mostly good ones. You can call Rey
a "Mary Sue", but Daisy's performance really makes up for what could be
an underwritten character. The movie has a lot of characters and is a
lot of fun but they don't balance out easily. Some like Captain Phasma
look interesting, but she does next to nothing in terms of plot and
character development. But overall, most of the performances are great
and give the film a lot of levity, unlike *Cough* Rogue One *Cough*.
There was a lot I liked here. There is a lot of grand set pieces that
really give the film huge scale. Even the visual effects by ILM looked
amazing as well. And overall, The Force Awakens is a huge amount of
fun. The plot is a rehash of A New Hope, but as they say "If it isn't
broke, don't fix it", even if there are elements of Empire thrown in.
Themes of The Force Awakens include Family, Fate, and Coincidence.
Since Rey has the Force, it is only known that she should discover the
full extent of her powers, which is implied at the end. Family plays a
big role in the Star Wars universe. And this trend continues with Han
and Leia's son being the leader of The First Order.
This film has reached more than a seventh of the world. It has most
certainly found its audiences. General audiences would like this film.
Star Wars fans certainly would. Depending on how you see the plot, it
could go any way.
