Review: Star Wars: The Force Awakens Part 2

*WARNING: CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS*

This is the second part of my review of The Force Awakens and like I said in the first part I am mainly focusing on the characters and what I thought about them. Overall though, I did absolutely love the movie and all the characters in it and I think J.J Abrams did a great job.

Han Solo

Han Solo (played by Harrison Ford) is a character from the original Star Wars who was first a smuggler and then joined the Resistance. He eventually did marry Princess Leia Organa and they had a son named Ben who struggled with the Dark Side of the Force. After his son destroyed Luke’s attempts to rebuild the Jedi Order he went back to smuggling and eventually lost the Millennium Falcon. He first finds it when Rey and Finn use it to escape Jakku. He then eventually meets Leia again and returns with her to the Resistance to help destroy the Starkiller Base which is the First Orders weapon. There he meets his son and tries desperately to convince him to come back and leave the Dark Side but it doesn’t work and his son ends up stabbing him with his Lightsaber. Wounded, he falls to his death in the Starkiller. I knew that eventually they would have to kill off Hans Solo but I didn’t think it would be in this movie. This death was obviously devastating for all Star Wars fans and I am still mourning it. However, I do understand that this was done to show just how evil Kylo Ren was, although it is highly debatable whether or not they had to kill off Hans Solo to prove that point.

Chewie, we’re home.

 

Princess Leia Organa

Princess Leia (played by Carrie Fisher) is another character from the original movies. She is the daughter of Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidala however after her father turns to the Dark Side and her mother dies she is adopted by the House of Organa. She is first seen in The Force Awakens when she arrives to help out Hans Solo and the rest who are being attacked by the First Order. She still works with the Resistance and when Han Solo decides to help destroy the Starkiller Base she asks him to bring their son back. Unfortunately, this doesn’t go as planned and Solo ends up being killed by their son. Being Force sensitive she feels it and looks absolutely devastated. In the end we see her bid goodbye to Rey who goes off to find Luke.

Maz Kanata

Maz Kanata (played by Lupita Nyong’O) was a female smuggler who had run her castle for thousands of years. She was very fond of Chewbacca. She was Force sensitive and had the power to see individuals who were also so. She had somehow come to be in possession of the blue lightsaber that had once belonged to Anakin Skywalker and then Luke Skywalker. She tells Rey that the lightsaber is calling for her and advises her to take it. It is unknown what happens to her after the First Order destroyed her castle. Lupita Nyong’O did a great job with this character.

Captain Phasma

Captain Phasma (played by Gwendoline Christie) is a female Captain working for the First Order. She tries to recondition Finn but it doesn’t work. She watches as the New Republic and Hosnian System are destroyed by the Starkiller. In the end she is left in base’s trash compactor by Han Solo, Finn and Chewbacca. Gwendoline was really great and I’m already a huge fan of hers because of Game Of Thrones. I also really like how this movie has so many strong female characters.

Luke Skywalker

Luke Skywalker (played by Mark Hamill) is the son of Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidala and he is the twin brother of Princess Leia Organa. He was trying to train a new Jedi Order after he was the only Jedi left. Leia sent her son Ben to train too as he was force sensitive however he ended up destroying everything Luke had tried to build and joined the Dark Side. Luke who was devastated ended up leaving and no one knew where he had been for the last 20 years. However, Rey finally finds him and The Force Awakens ends with him dramatically turning around and looking very surprised. I look forward to seeing more of him in the next movie and cannot wait to see him train Rey.

Review: Star Wars: The Force Awakens Part 1

*WARNING: CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS*

I know everyone has probably written their reviews for this movie but I wanted to write it a bit later after discussing it with everyone and reading some other reviews too. So instead of talking about the plot I will be talking mainly about the characters, especially the newly introduced ones. But I must admit I did love the plot (although it was extremely similar to the plots of past episodes). Everything about the movie seemed great too- the actors and actresses did a great job, the lighting and sound was obviously great and I really loved how J.J Abrams paid homage to the original movies. So here is what I think of the characters:

Rey

Rey (played by Daisy Ridley) who is the new main character and who is shown as a powerful and clever female is definitely one of my new favorite characters. Her past is very mysterious and all we seem to know about her is that she was left at Jakku at a young age and learnt to be a scavenger. She is also a talented pilot and fighter. She first became involved when she found BB-8 and later Finn. Another thing that makes her extremely interesting is that The Force is very, very strong with her and the lightsaber that was earlier used by Anakin Skywalker (Darth Vader) and Luke Skywalker called to her. This has got fans all over speculating who her parents are because we all know that The Force is very strong in the Skywalker family. Even though her piloting skills remind us of Han Solo I still don’t think he and Leia are Rey’s parents. Neither he nor Leia mentioned a daughter and Kylo Ren didn’t recognize her either and only mocked her for wishing Han Solo was her father. In my opinion I think she may be Luke’s daughter. The movie ends with her finally finding Luke who has been gone for 20 years and whose location had been previously unknown. I look forward to seeing her (hopefully) as a Jedi in the next episode.

Finn

Finn (played by John Boyega) formerly known as FN-2187, is obviously the sort of lost, confused, funny and sweet character you can instantly take a liking to. Formerly a stormtrooper, he deserted his post and eventually ended up joining the Resistance against the First Order. He became friends with Poe Dameron, a member of the resistance, when they escaped the First Order together however they were separated when they crashed in Jakku where Finn eventually met Rey. They escaped in the Millennium Falcon and eventually met Han Solo who seemed to be a legend as both a rebel fighter and a smuggler. At first Finn wanted nothing to do with the Resistance or the First Order and instead just wanted to hide but seeing that they had captured Rey (who he seems to have thing for) he decided to join the Resistance and fight against the First Order. After seeing Kylo Ren kill his father Han Solo and hurt Rey he briefly uses the lightsaber to fight Kylo Ren but is unsuccessful. His past, similarly to Rey’s is unknown, as he was taken to be a stromtrooper at a very young age and didn’t remember his past. People do seem to be hinting that Lando may be his father but of course there isn’t any solid evidence to show this yet. The movie leaves Finn unconscious but seeming to be in recovery as Rey leaves his side to find Luke Skywalker.

 

 

 

 

 

Poe Dameron

Poe Dameron (played by Oscar Isaac) is again a new character who is very important and interesting to watch. He worked The New Republic and later with the Resistance, he is an amazing pilot and he is insanely hot. In the very first scene we see him give BB-8 the information given to him by Lor San Tekka, who apparently knew where Luke was, to keep safely. It has a part of the map that leads to where Luke Skywalker is. Unfortunately, he is captured by Kylo Ren who learns that Poe gave it to BB-8. Poe is than saved by Finn, a rebel stormtrooper and as they both escape he insists they go back to Jakku to find BB-8 even though Finn insists this would be a mistake. As they are arguing about where to go they are hit and end up in Jakku anyway but Poe seems to have died in the crash as their Finalizer explodes and Finn is left on his own. However, we see Dameron again and it turns out he landed on a different planet and is now back with the Resistance. In the end we see him bid farewell to Rey as she goes to seek Luke.

Kylo Ren

Kylo Ren (played by Adam Driver) is the son of Han Solo and Princess Leia Organa who turned to the Dark Side of the Force. From when he was young he seemed to be different and so his parents sent him to Luke (who at the time was training new Jedi’s) to train him to be a Jedi. However, this idea ended horribly as Ben became Kylo Ren and ended up killing all the other Jedi’s and joining the Dark Side. This incident devastated Luke who left without a trace. Kylo Ren is obviously the villain here and he believes he is continuing the work of his grandfather Darth Vader. Of course it is hard to take over the place of the antagonist from a famous villain like Darth Vader but watching him kill his own father Han Solo (which was the most depressing death ever in my opinion) who was unarmed proved the point really well. The Force is very strong with him just like the rest of his family however we see him being overpowered by Rey both when he tries to get information out of her and when they have a fight in the woods. In the end of the final battle between Kylo Ren and Rey, Kylo is injured but is rescued by General Hux who was commanded to do so by Supreme Leader Snoke as he wanted to complete Kylo’s training.
