Besides Page and Luna the cast is bland, not the actors fault cause I’ve seen all them in better movies but they get the one character trait each. Bottom line you don’t care about these characters for two reasons the stakes aren’t high enough and you don’t get a sense of them. The film has so many problems it’s hard to list them all but they kill off a character about mid way through and it hurt the film a lot also the film is way too long, we get so much padding in this film that it kills the tension and momentum of the story. A horror film can’t be too long cause once you check out there’s no going back.
The story, if you don’t know by now, is about how the Rebels obtained the plans to destroy the Death Star. We already know they succeed. So, why bother? BECAUSE, COOL STUFF. Let me elaborate. A New Hope succeeds without an introduction. It has for almost forty years.
