I thought it was great! Entertaining with a big old fashioned heart. I'm a little disappointed with Lupita's role, though. The MVP, for me, is Adam Driver, menacing and fragile at the same time. But the chemistry between Finn and Rey were super fun!The weak spot, for me, is the Han Solo / Leia romance. Unconvincing, sadly.
I liked it very much. It is, at certain points, too similar to ANH (can't say more) but the new cast are all excellent. Daisy Ridley and John Boyega are gonna be megastars and they deserve it! And I know we're all sick and tired of beating on the prequels but this must be said: Adam Driver has more emotional depth in a single scene (and once you've seen the film you'll know which one I'm talking about) than Hayden Christensen had in two whole movies.

"Co-sign. He could have walked away with that Oscar easily. Not only is it one of the best male performances of the year, but they owe him for Grand Budapest Hotel. Why no campaign? He's not bothered, clearly." -- James Birnie
