Roger Moore, Movie Nation: “A glib facsimile.”
Rubin Safaya, Cinemalogue.com: “Perhaps another director will pick up the elements that Abrams left scattered about, imbue them with some… any kind of subtext, to give us some real poetry.”
Andrew O’Hehir, Salon.com: “[Abrams ] has made an adoring copy of Star Wars, seeking to correct its perceived flaws, without understanding that nothing about that movie’s context or meaning or enormous cultural impact can be duplicated.”
Scott Mendelson, Forbes: “It is not a little disheartening to see this new ‘Star Wars’ installment not blazing its own path but rather chasing its tail and rehashing its former glories for our approval.”
