This film has four layers 1. Beautiful visuals, the outer layer 2. Nostalgia 3. Cheesy jokes and predictable action 4. Emptiness, there's no weight to any of it, no atmosphere

Don't get me wrong I don't think it's a one out of ten but it does not deserve to be ahead of films like the hateful eight and I feel bad for all the money Disney has managed to make for nothing original, I was looking forward to it, but was so disappointed, there are plot holes everywhere that make you escape from the movie because you don't believe any of it, and everything is made overly dramatic without any subtly so it just makes you cringe instead, there are no New ideas and they make the galaxy feel as if it's the size of a small town rather than that feeling of endlessness you get from the originals, the first half was better but the second half is so predictable, I liked Kylo ren and hope snoke is not just emperor 2.0 but the plot was far-fetched and the cheesy jokes felt awkward and cringe worthy like in a marvel movie but those jokes have more place in them
