Audiences the world over have been left groaning by the manner in which the movie concludes. It's immensely unsatisfying and only partly in the way that, say, The Empire Strikes Back was with its immense cliffhanger: it feels like Abrams was so committed to bleeding out the mystery that he has ended TFA on a fairly incomplete note. It feels like there should be at least another few minutes to make the first step in this three-act arc feel finished. The moment sees Rey attaining the final part of the map to Luke Skywalker's location and heading there, at which point she finds an older Luke wearing a cloak, and as she holds the lightsaber out to him, the movie just... ends. Some will naturally love it, but even those who stand up for the film may find themselves frustrated by how it concludes. It could've gone a little further and still provided a perfect lead-in for Episode VIII, but instead, it just feels kinda empty and tailor-made to annoy. Couldn't we have had a brief moment of talking between the two, even just a few lines to tease what's ahead? What did you think of Star Wars: The Force Awakens? Does it live up to the hype or were you also disappointed? Shout it out in the comments!
