I saw this movie on DVD. I liked Daisy Ridley, but she cannot carry this movie of 145 minutes.

Being familiar with the previous productions, I observed excessive borrowing of story from previous STAR WAR movies. I saved 25 minutes of film time by hitting the fast forward button to the recognized ending of each scene.

The relationships among the characters do not go much beyond the Soap Oper revelations in earlier movies (also found in most action movies). The viewer should not support much interaction from character development in an action movie. What is surprising is how much time the film makers devoted to character introspection.

In the end I devoted as much time to this film as it deserves.
