A small budget independent film from the 50's that provides a lot of fun. The Martian in the Glass Globe played by Luce Potter is fantastic! The end however is a bit too on the nose and it lost me in a few parts. The exposition and pseudo scientific explanations are great fun but do drag a bit.
A film that delivers nostalgia and plenty of fan service for lifelong fans of the series but does little to expand into any new ground. Following the divisive Last Jedi from Rian Johnson in which Kylo Ren states "it's time to let old things die" JJ Abrams instead goes about creating a sequel in the same vein of The Force Awakens by retracing plot points from the original trilogy. All that aside if you are a Star Wars fan you will no doubt have a lot of fun watching this.
