Watching this in the theater was an incredible experience; it felt like watching Star Wars for the very first time. Seeing it a second time however made me not only feel like I'd seen this movie twice, but that I'd also watched Star Wars for about the 20th time, because it basically is a modernized retelling of Star Wars, just with better graphics and less whining.

I loved the original Star Wars movies when they came out way back when. They were original and creative. While this wasn't bad, it was so much like the first one that it could not be called either original or creative, from the bar scene with the crazy beings to the droid that has a map that is wanted by the bad guy - slight changes, but nothing new from the original movie. All in all, it was pretty disappointing that after so many years they came up with such a weak movie.

This was a great movie! I'm not a Star Wars fan and had never seen the original movie but this movie introduced the new characters as well as the old ones. I liked the action and the lead actors and loved the story line. I understood the movie without knowing a thing about the story of Star Wars. Great action, humor and everything you need for a great movie.

Being a big fan of Star Wars and Star Trek, I'd have to say this movie was hands down the worst movie I've ever seen. Save your time and find another movie. It looks like a low-budget film. They substituted a story line for unnecessary gruesome violence. Not for children!!!

Entertaining, I'll yield on that point. But it's disappointing the creative team weren't -- in fact -- more creative. After all, we've already seen episodes 4-6; no need to waste film repeating the entire story line again with different characters. Still, as a viewer, since you didn't have any say in the plot yourself, like I say this film still has all the essential Star Wars elements: good vs.evil, non-stop-action, adventure, suspense, drama, & even a little comedy. And all well done too. It's just a shame to go through all effort that and not end up with something a little more creative and original.

ok story line, but really it is just the 4 , 5 and 6 all over again.
George Lucas come up with something new; and Disney didn't help much.
Great action (But not as much as 6)

On wait list for 5 weeks and the disc I get had been screwed with and would not load.

If I could give it negative stars, I would. It looks like it was written by a marketing team trying to recreate the original Star Wars' appeal by shuffling around the elements and plot without bringing anything new in. There is not a single scrap of originality or story to this.
