Jan (Age 11) - ★★★★1/2

"One of my favourite Star Wars movies so far! The best bits were; Finn ditching being a storm trooper to become part of the resistance, Finn first getting a name, Finn first meeting Rey, Finn and Rey first meeting Han Solo and Chewbacca, Han solo's reunion with the millennium falcon. Other good scenes were; Han and Leia's reunion, the revealing that kylo ren is actually Han's son, kylo ren vs han solo, han solo's death, kylo ren vs finn, kylo ren vs Rey, and finally R2-D2's map to Skywalker.

'My favourite character top 3 of this movie' is;

1. Finn

2. Han

3. Rey

Finn had a funny kind of chaotic bold confidence in him which I really enjoyed. Han solo is just as good as he was in star wars episode 6 return of the jedi (which is perfect) even though he's a bit older. Rey was quite strange and full of mystery to me, that was what made me want to watch her more.

Overall a brilliant movie, which I would recommend to anyone who loves Marvel or DC. I am sorry if you wasted your time on reading this very long review. I hope that star wars episode 8 the last jedi will be just as good (maybe a bit less dramatic) as this star wars episode."
