Story: Poe Dameron (Isaac) is a fighter pilot from the Resistance who meets Lor San Tekka (Sydow) to collect a map that'll help locate Luke Skywalker, who has long since become a recluse. The village they're in comes under surprise attack from Stormtroopers (belonging to the First Order, which emerged from the ashes of the Galactic Empire) led by Kylo Ren (Driver). A droid named BB-8 is entrusted with the map and told to escape. Will the Resistance be able to locate Skywalker and prevent the First Order from taking over the galaxy? Or will the First Order get to Luke first, if they obtain the map?

Review: That Star Wars is a force to be reckoned with, is a given. It is a cinematic entity - a space opera - of such proportion that it has no parallel or comparison. But J.J. Abrams' biggest achievement here is that he has successfully managed the daunting task of forging the beginnings of a new chapter in this franchise's mythology. Tributes and references to the early films abound - some obvious and some not-so-obvious. For example, the 'wipes' that are used for scene transitions are delightfully (and deliberately) retro, and first seen in 1977's A New Hope.

The old characters are gradually revealed - Han Solo (Ford) practically owns the screen, as he commands the Millennium Falcon like not a day had gone by since Return of the Jedi. Much rests on the new villain, Ren, a conflicted character for various reasons. Of course, no one can compare Ren to Darth Vader and wisely, Abrams doesn't even try. Instead, Abrams uses Vader as an inspirational figure for Ren. Rey (Ridley) passes muster and Finn (Boyega) is a Stormtrooper who loses faith in the First Order and defects to the Resistance. This is interesting, as never before have Stormtroopers been given even a shade of personality.

The storytelling is top notch. It's a carefully-crafted dance of nuance that balances a bit of everything. The set pieces are spectacular and then of course, there are the lightsaber battles... The Force is indeed, epic with this one. Don't miss it.

Cliffhanger endings are, by their very nature, designed to titillate audiences leaving them with unanswered questions and unresolved plot points. By which measure, the ending to Star Wars: The Force Awakens was perfectly pitched, bringing the film''s new heroine, Rey, face to face with the original trilogy''s great hero, Luke Skywalker, and paving the way for the next two instalments of the long-running space saga.
