I have my reservations but still have to admit I did enjoy the movie.
Otherwise, the movie is entertaining, and is now part of my collection.
The Force seems to be acting on its own in this second trilogy, after what seems a few days (at most) with Luke of training, Rey has most of the abilities of a Master Jedi. At least Ben (Kylo) had formal training.
Similarly, I felt that the next approximate 1.5 hours could have been better written. [SPOILER ALERT] There was, for instance, too much guessing and too many opportunities missed.
Still, I think the DVD is worth watching.

The plot feels very contrived, revolving around a prolonged, low speed pursuit through space, in which the First Order can't catch the Resistance's ship because their ship's top speed is the same as the Resistance's ship, and the Resistance ship is just happens to be slightly out of range of their guns. Plus, the Resistance can't jump through hyperspace because the First Order have somehow figured out how to track them, so the baddies are just sitting around waiting for the goodies' ship to run out of petrol...
On top of this, there is a huge sub-plot, in which the protagonists defy their superiors and set out on a daring mission to get their shipmates out of their predicament, only for the entire sequence to turn out to be literally for nothing at all... In a single line of dialogue, the preceding hour of the film is revealed to have been pure filler. Their success or failure was irrelevant, and the whole section could have been cut from the film without affecting a damn thing. The really infuriating part is; taken to it's conclusion, this sub-plot could have provided a satisfying climax to the film. But it seems that pushing a political agenda took precedence over a consistent and entertaining plot. Which brings me onto my final point.
The overall message of this film also seems at odds with the spirit of Star Wars. The previous two trilogies showed the dangers of unquestioned loyalty, of blind obedience to authority... The brutal totalitarianism of the Empire in the Original Trilogy, and the dogma and arrogance of the Jedi Order in the Prequel Trilogy. But here, the message seems to be the complete opposite. The manner in which the afore mentioned sub-plot is eventually derailed pushes across a message of always trusting authority, not thinking for yourself, and that taking the initiative ultimately gets you nowhere. If only Poe, Finn and Rose had just shut up and waited for orders, they could have saved themselves a whole lot of trouble, and shaved a whole hour off the film. At times it attempts to make a point about greed and even animal welfare, with the protagonists setting a herd of horse-like creatures free. But it all feels very hypocritical when they ignore the plight of the child slaves who muck out the stables.
In conclusion, the film feels like a complete mess. I have no idea how any writer can possibly salvage enough to produce a satisfying conclusion to this trilogy.
