Star Wars: The Force Awakens 3D D-BOX Movie Review

This is finally the proper Star Wars sequel we have been waiting for since 1983. Forget the CGI mess of the prequels. This is back to proper Star Wars. Decent story, practical effects, rubber creatures, real robots, no green screen, good story, space dogfights you can see, the list just goes on and on. Its very similar to the original trilogy in that it starts with unknown characters and story and things gradually piece together. There is the perfect mix of new and old characters, with them all displaying the quips and jokes of the original. The sets are familiar yet fresh, and the sound effects bring smiles to your face reminding you of the old. There are also a couple massive shockers, one revealed quite early on, the second has been spoiled for several by idiots on several forums. Quite simply the best film this year, roll on the next two (five if you include the spin-offs)!

The 3D pops at certain points, with the odd star destroyer and light sabre poking out at you. The D-BOX was on top form for all the spaces fights.

The D-Box was awesome, but not for the flight scenes, which somehow felt like the physics were backwards, but for the scenes when the "force" was being used...pretty cool!
