You would think the box office success of The Force Awakens would be celebrated by everyone who has an affinity for a good cinematic adventure. Alas, that is not the case – not in the type of world we live in today. For those who feel The Force Awakens is part of the overhyped media machine, Variety’s Peter Debruge makes his case for Episode VII being worthy of every republic credit the film has earned so far via the source link below.
This is about the moment that the backlash sets in. “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has broken box office records around the world, the first wave of fan excitement is trickling out into the culture at large, and now, the skeptics jump in with daggers drawn to take the movie down a notch. It happened with “Avatar,” and now, J. J. Abrams’ glorious re-launch of the world’s most popular franchise is primed to be the next victim. Fine, that’s how these things go, but don’t let the nay-sayers fool you. In a year rife with spectacle, nothing thrills like “Star Wars,” and if you loved it, you’re not alone. Here, in a “Rearview” intended for those who’ve already seen the movie [warning: spoilers ahead — viewers are advised to go in knowing as little as possible], Variety chief international film critic Peter Debruge gives you ammunition to defend the galaxy’s biggest blockbuster.
