Top 10 Biggest Problems With Star Wars: The Force Awakens

The Top Ten
1 It's a remake of A New Hope

I don't think Force Awakens is a bad movie (I think it's the only decent movie in the new trilogy) but yeah it's very similar. I'm not going to say it's a direct copy and paste of A New Hope (because it's not), but they definitely borrowed a lot from it. The Prequels borrowed from the originals too though (take "Hello there" for example) but nobody complained about it so, what do I know?

Some similitiarities, the protagonist is a young force sensitive human from a desert planet who finds a droid who has important plans. She then finds and old man who helps her give the plans to a rebellion that rebells against an empire that has created a superweapon that can destroy planets. The female protagonist then gets captured by an evil force user that is under the contoll of an more evil force user. The other protagonist then rescues her and the old man gets killed by the evil force user. The rebels then finds a way to destroy the superweapon with X-wings but the evil force user survives.

2 Rey using the force without any training

URRG! THIS makes me mad more than anything else in this movie! All throughout the star wars movies and many books it states that you DO need years and years of training! Why the hell did Abrams and all of the other makers of this awesome movie mess this well known fact up I have no clue as to why they did it!

3 Finn and Rey being able to fight Kylo Ren despite never using lightsabers before

As much as I was disappointed in this, I'll try to defend it as best I can. Remember Ren had just been shot in the side by Chewie's crossbow, a weapon previously proven to send Stormtroopers flying in the air. Not Ren. He took it like a champ. He then fights Finn, yes, an ex-janitor without any lightsaber experience, but he wasn't trying to kill him. I thought Ren's lax fighting style made it obvious he was only toying with Finn rather than actually trying to dice him up. This is made more obvious when Finn actually lands a hit on Ren, who then immediately disarms Finn and slices his back. A combination of grief after killing his father earlier, being taken by surprise when Rey uses the force and stuff, all the while bleeding from Chewie's crossbow earlier, account for the fact he lost to Rey.

4 Kylo Ren having tantrums
5 Terrible CGI

The CGI was actually very good, but it's the terrible amount of CGI that bothered us.

6 Kylo Ren's plan makes no sense
7 Luke Skywalker's one minute cameo

Hey! Luke Skywalker's back! But he's not showing up in the trailers! So, that means they've got a big surprise for him, right?
Oh? He's only there for thirty seconds at the end and doesn't say a single word? Why is his name second on the credit billing before all of the actual main actors?

I mean come on people, it's just Rey climbing stairs for 2 minutes and holding out a lightsaber. She doesn't even question if it's Luke... This part bothered me

When they said Mark Hamill would be making a return, I didn't think they meant ten seconds at the end looking barely recognisable.

8 Han Solo's death

Spoiler Alert: This was the most tragic scene, along with the destruction of Hosnian Prime by the First Order, in Star Wars history, making it the saddest movie of 2015, and in a while.

Harrison Ford didn't want to be in star wars anymore. Disney was not originally going to kill him off. But it was very sad nonetheless.

If Kylo Ren was real, I'd do to him what he did to Han Solo.

9 Kylo Ren removing his mask

Are you kidding? Everyone is whining because it's too similar too A New Hope, but think about it, this would of made more like Vader because Vader didn't remove his mask until episode 6.

Kylo was a ferocious villain, but the moment he took off that mask, I lost respect for him. He looked more like a gawky nerd with a big nose and a geeky voice

I laughed so hard when I so his face. He should remained masked till the 3rd movie. Kinda ruined him honestly.

10 Lupita Nyong'o
The Contenders
11 Supreme Leader Snoke

SW tried to add a new character, Snoke, but they decided to make a Gollum/Voldemort wannabe that's like Emperor Palpatine on steroids, that's who he is.

Snoke was just a boring leader.

12 Lacks originality

Same thing, It's a mashup of A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

13 General Hux speech

I know the First Order are supposed to be the bad guys of this movie, but this scene brought too much in terms of Nazi allusions.

14 So many questions.

Where did the first order come from? Where did kylo ren come from? Didn't the jedi come back from the dead?

15 Starkiller Base is just another Death Star
16 The lightsaber fight

Honestly, by Star Wars standards, it was very underwhelming. Even the prequels got that right. Still, Force Awakens is a great movie

17 The new characters
18 The story doesn't make any sense
19 Finn is too pointless
20 The rebels are the resistance
21 How Luke is portrayed

He was just a loser in this movie.

22 Too much CGI

Abrams lied to everyone about this movie using less CGI than the prequels, the prequels actually had less than this movie.

23 Over-hyped

It was expected to be the greatest movie of all time, fans bundled up, until when it came out, people hated it.

24 Daisy Ridley Daisy Jazz Isobel Ridley is an English actress. She began her acting career by appearing in minor television roles, before being cast as the main protagonist, Rey, in the Star Wars sequel trilogy – first appearing in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

She was amazing! What's so bad about her?
