ODEON says...
One of cinema’s truly legendary franchises finally returns with the eagerly-awaited ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’, which sees a new generation of heroes fighting for the freedom of the galaxy.

We return to George Lucas’ beloved universe to find it dramatically changed, and a new enemy has risen from the Empire’s ashes. Fresh faces Rey, Finn and Poe Dameron must unite with old warriors Luke, Han and Leia. The Dark Side has awoken. But so has the Light.

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ promises a heart-stopping return to the Galaxy Far, Far Away, bringing the iconic franchise roaring back. May the Force be with you.

A couple of refreshed plot points to help familiarise audiences of what they enjoyed from a film nearly 40 years ago, but it sets up a new story with new/returning characters in an adventure that is compassionate, funny and exciting... A fun adventure!

It was brilliant! After ten years Star Wars is back on the big screen! I enjoyed it so much. It was the most successful film of last year!

One of the worst

Reviewer: SF2Date: 2016-03-31

One of the worst films I've ever seen. Boring. A repeat of previous films. Waste of money.

Old school

This is the star wars film I have been waiting years for. fantastic action, lots of great effects, a great cast and some fine performances. Lots of humour and a little romance made this a great Star Wars film.
