Denis Lawson, who played X-wing pilot Wedge Antilles in the original Star Wars trilogy, has confirmed that he turned down an invite from Disney to reprise his role in the new installments. Lawson told the British press, "I'm not going to do that. They asked me, but it just would have bored me." See more »
When Kylo Ren interrogates Rey, he removes his helmet and sets it down on a table of ashes. This table is not present in any of the wider shots of the interrogation room. [Director JJ Abrams has stated that the closeup of the ashes (the ashes of his victims, apparently) was actually from an earlier scene taking place in Kylo Ren's quarters on the star destroyer, which explains why the table is not visible in the Starkiller Base interrogation room. Still a mistake but there's the reason.] See more »
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.
Lor San Tekka:
Oh, the General? To me, she is royalty.
Well, she certainly is that.

As any film with a fantasy reality, the way such a reality is presented to you means a lot. This movie presents almost nothing that we had not seen before and by better actors, which makes it all quite dull in a way. I won't spoil anything you can't read in the plot description, but if you are going to watch this know that: In every minute of this film you will feel deja vu

That's literally all you get of an introduction to the reality of which this films take place since now all of a sudden the winners are the underdogs again.. hmm! The Disney girl plays an expressionless half-genius who has all the ability in the world already. Her face doesn't seem like she cares much and since she doesn't, I don't.
Perhaps I'm being a bit harsh. The film is visually very pretty and there are a few familiar characters along the way, but I unfortunately found myself not caring one bit for anyone or their "coincidences". Everything I saw, everything the characters said, and everything the characters were fighting for, meant nothing to me watching it because it was all to easy and predictable if you had watched Episode IV. The bad guy is also like the neighbourood bully that scares little kids and can't maintain his discipline because everyone has seen his mother spank him or drag him in to eat his dinner greens.
This movie is clearly made for the investors and not for fans of the original stuff - as it is an insult to those that haven't. If not an insult, then just pure failure from the director who ignores/doesn't know so many storytelling aspects that today counts as "basic" in order to lay the ground work for a decent movie.
