Watched this last night and while it cannot be denied it was an epic feast of stunning CGI and special effects, it was still just another lane-arse prequel where you already know the ending.
Erm Death Star, yeah. Luke's going to blow it up by bombing it down the back passage. We know, so why should I have to wait over 2:15 hours to find out that they do in fact manage to get the plans off the planet?
That said, it was a good watch (if far too long) and what I really enjoyed was seeing Peter Cushing resurrected. My, was that spooky seeing him again- as it was seeing a young Carrie Fischer.
