As expected: a somewhat Disneyfied, Blockbusterified, cartoonified, more palatable, less believable homage to the originals. Disposable and money-generating: one doesn’t wish to watch it more than once, but just enough suspense to watch the next one. Best parts were the poignant, anachronistic performances of Harrison Ford (drawing from a lifetime of experiences), followed (interestingly enough) by the droid, and then maybe Daisy Ridley. About 50 scenes that were vaguely cartoonish and largely implausible.
