I guess Bond films are all about callbacks and nostalgia now
I can’t say this film was very good. There were parts I liked; they were overshadowed by the many parts I didn’t like.
The Kylo Ren and Rey relationship continued to be interesting here, and pretty much the only bright point (well, up until the terrible end). Abrams tried to do the ensemble cast thing, but there just wasn’t the time made in the movie for real characters. The excruciating, overwrought, telegraphed sentimentality permeated the whole film.
Don’t watch more than once. Maybe not even once.
