Lor San Tekka:
This will begin to make things right. I've traveled too far and seen too much to ignore the despair in the galaxy. Without the Jedi, there can be no balance in the Force.
Well, because of you, now we have a chance. The General's been after this for a long time.

Entertaining but forgettable popcorn movie....horrendous Star Wars movie
Under Disney ownership and with hacks such as JJ Abrams (with creative input from Simon Pegg...God help us) at the helm now, unfortunately Star Wars has been reduced to yet another Transformers/Marvel mindless action, zero plot franchise designed purely to reach the widest possible audience. The legacy of the iconic characters of the OT (particularly Luke) have been reduced to the point of them being almost unrecognizable losers. The previous six film story arc has been completely undermined to say the least and the mystique and nature of the Force simplified, dumbed down and instant.
The endless coincidences, JJs nonsensical, deus ex machina story, riddled with plot holes, absurd pacing and editing (which explains John Williams difficulty to nail the score), lack of character development/backstory, so on and so on. The bastardization of SW universe laws and the basic fact that this was supposed to be Episode VII in a seamless saga, but instead we were coned and sold a forgettable reboot was utterly unforgivable. But alas it's a huge commercial hit and the mob sing its praises. But without Lucas, it's just spaceships and lasers.
