“Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” directed by J.J. Abrams, is the seventh and newest installment of the “Star Wars” franchise. At the time this was written, the film remained number one at the box office for three weeks in a row and was expected to break the 2.8 billion dollar box office record set by James Cameron’s “Avatar.”

The film focuses on Rey, a down-on-her-luck scavenger who lives on the desert planet Jakku. Her entire life changes when she meets the droid BB-8 and Finn, a former stormtrooper for the evil First Order. The adventure that awaits them is sure to entertain.

The first thing longtime fans will notice is that it just feels like a “Star Wars” movie. The moment the opening crawl begins, any doubt about the quality of this film should be erased. It is full of witty banter, tear jerking drama, and great special effects.

Despite this, there are a few minor problems with the film. Without spoiling anything, there is a scene that features a certain character element that does not feel at home in a Star Wars film.

There is another moment where Domhnall Gleeson, who portrays a First Order officer, overacts quite a bit while speaking to his troops. However, these two scenes are a minor blemish on an otherwise fantastic film.

In the end, this film is a welcome addition to the “Star Wars” universe.

J.J. Abrams should rest well knowing he will not be referred to as “Jar Jar Abrams” for the rest of his days.
