Rotten Tomatoes (via FWT) Critics Consensus: Packed with action and populated by both familiar faces and fresh blood, The Force Awakens successfully recalls the series’ former glory while injecting it with renewed energy.
Awesome news coming from Rotten Tomatoes about the first few critic reviews here. There’s been a lot of talk about how nervous JJ Abrams is, and how much pressure comes with a remake/reboot like this. I mean, it’s pretty understandable. This is the biggest movie franchise ever, after all.
So to see this already, with a score of 97 and 126 out of 130 critics giving the review a “fresh”, is great news.
