I give it a 7/10. It was fun.
Bad: straight lifting the plot of episode 4 was a little disappointing. Fan service went a little far. I think Adam Driver is an above average Hollywood actor, but it was hard to not see him as his character from Girls for a lot of the movie. "Hi, my name is Kylo Ren. I'm an emotionally undeveloped, privileged white male millenial who lives off my parents, and I've decided I'm joining the dark side to destroy the galaxy because fuck them and everyone else."
Good: Daisy Ridley and John Boyega. BB-8's cutesy stuff was well done and avoided the worst of C-3PO and that other dipshit. Lasers and light sabers. The music.
Recreating the feel of the originals was nice but I feel like the bar has been raised especially over the past decade for action films. As far as theater experiences this year Mad Max (holy shit) and even Furious 7 (not really even a fan of the franchise) were on another level than this.
