        Not a good movie at all.  Rehashing old ideas is dreadful.  It reeks of desperation.  The story was so poorly thought out, that it makes me wonder if it was done over drinks at a bar.  Underlining that point is Han's death.  Granted, Ford didn't want to do the role, so his death was inevitable.  But, the way it was handled took away almost all the emotional impact that it should have had.  The audience could see it coming a mile away.  That's just inept writing.
        And the lack of explanation for the new conflict is grating.  Answering crucial questions at a later date is just more bad writing.  If they were going to rehash the Jedi-Sith conflict, then I would have liked it if they did away with the whole, 'Sith only come in pairs' garbage.  A new Jedi council facing a council of Sith would have at least had a novel aspect.  Or genetically engineered, super-soldier Stormtroopers(a la Captain America), would have made a rump Empire more of a threat.  But, a new Death Star??  C'mon.  I won't be buying this mess on DVD.

        The whole pair thing is based on Star Wars history. They could do another war but they would still need a set up and there are no Jedi other than Luke.

          One could make the argument that the original Star Wars was a rehash of movies already and nothing was entirely novel in those either. Revealing some things as it went sort of were but a dynmanic in family drama is common.

            Not saying anybody has to like the thing, but I do think it was a well made movie, if not entirely novel. Although I do not think any of them were. I thought Han's death was handled well too. I feel it is really hard to not have modern audiences recognize a scene like that when it is coming though. Otherwise it would just have to be too sudden to really realize things. At least IMO.

    Hans death was viewable from miles away. I knew he would die before I read or saw ANY of the movie or story on the internet. I actually did a good job of avoiding spoilers for this one.


Did not say it was a surprise but if a person has seen many movies or read much spotting a character that will die is often not that hard. That is my point. I am not sure there would have been a way to do it that would not draw ire for one reason or another.
