The critical consensus

It packs a planet-sized punch, launching a new generation of characters who – by the end – take a place next to Han, Leia and the rest. Star Wars is back, and this is just the beginning.

****(*)Helen O'Hara, Empire Online, 16/12/2015

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is very probably the best Star Wars yet, and would be held up as untouchable had it come first. So let's not let ourselves get too bloody internet-y about it and start it tearing to pieces, and enjoy what is a fun, well-executed and thoroughly corrective sequel.

****(*)Christopher Hooton, The Independent, 16/12/2015

JJ Abrams' confident direction ensures a triumphant return for the beloved space saga.

*****James Mottram, The List, 16/12/2015

JJ Abrams banishes memories of George Lucas’s prequels with this outrageously exciting and romantic return to a world you hadn’t realised you’d missed so much.

*****Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 16/12/2015

Fabulously entertaining and beautifully crafted.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 16/12/2015

No film could hope to match the expectations surrounding Star Wars: The Force Awakens and yet director JJ Abrams and his cast come pretty close.

*****Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 18/12/2015

The action and spectacle is first class.

*****Henry Fitzherbert, Sunday Express, 20/12/2015

What’s most striking about Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the fact that this multimillion dollar franchise blockbuster has real heart and soul.

****(*)Mark Kermode, The Observer, 20/12/2015

The Force Awakens is as good as anyone could have realistically hoped, and it sets things up wonderfully for Episode VIII.

****(*)Richard Edwards, Total Film,

No need to have a bad feeling about this. J.J. Abrams’ movie will thrill youngsters and transport millions more back to their childhoods far, far away.

*****Jamie Graham, Total Film, 16/12/2015
