I think JJ Abrams just watched the original 1977 Star Wars movie and said "Lets remake that and call it a day."
Wife and I watched the 3-D version a few day ago and I thought the same thing. When it was over I was like I have seen this before only very slightly different.

Knowing JJ Abram's propensity to just rehash and repackage other movies, we can probably predict the plot of the next installment.

Inexperienced Jedi seeks out Jedi master for training.
Inexperienced Jedi rushes off to save friends before training is complete.
Confronts bad guy in black mask before they are fully ready.
Gets hand chopped off.
Surprise ending when Jedi finds out she's related to bad guy in black mask.


I think if we want an original Star Wars move, the anthology movie series coming out next year might be good. I have high hopes anyway. We'll see.

EXACTLY what I thought when I took my kids to see it yesterday. An entertaining movie but basically a re-make of the original in my opinion.

right a safe movie with guaranteed people not hating it....not taking any risks...the acting was pretty good and I like the fact less CGI than the last 3 movies..but I thought the storylines were better last 3 movies...

I hate that everything is so convenient in the movie how things related to each other..i was waiting on Fin being related to Lando....

isn't it easier to blow up something before they finish making it..you figure they had to know halfway through that something was up....just like the partial death star..

also hate how a former stormtrooper can fight a jedi pretty equal for awhile....took skywalker a lot longer to be that good...

Saw it opening night as well and absolutely loved it. It recaptured the feeling of the originals so darn well. Granted...it did come off like a re-mix of the original but that's not necessarily a bad thing. The foundation they set for the next couple of movies is so strong.

(I have a 77 Topps Darth Vader proudly displayed on my desk at all times, the Force is strong on my desk!)

+1

This movie was intended to set a foundation for the next several upcoming movies. Was it a rehash? Yes. Was it also an apology by proxy from JJ to fans for the special editions and the prequels? Yes.

At 770 million, it passed Avatar as the all time box office leader. It will probably gross 900+ million before it's over.

finally saw the movie yesterday - it was pretty good! took my 6 year old son cause he was dying to see it. I think it was fine for the kiddies that age in case anyone was interested. There were 3 "scary parts, he covered his eyes for. Was a bit more violent than the other 6 films. All in all a damn good movie that leaves u waiting for the next one - which I believe comes out in 2017

also if you have kids that lego star wars game is awesome
