9. Plot Holes A-Plenty
There has been a lot of Internet buzz about The Force Awakens shoddy plot. Over at the Huffington Post
, Seth Abramson published a two-article
diatribe about The Force Awakens' Unforgivable plot holes. Abramson pointed out sixty gaffes in the feature, although it's hard to say they're all valid; a lot of his examples like Captain Phasma is supposed to be a big-deal character aren't even real plot holes. Abramson and many online haters have nitpicked The Force Awakens plot to justify their dislike of it, but a lot of these criticism come down to matters of taste. Plot holes are logical inconsistencies in the movie, not things that somebody didnt like about the movie. No movie is plot hole free. They are an inevitable part of the movie making process. Plot holes only make a difference if they become so glaring that the movie ceases to make sense or stops being enjoyable. The Force Awakens critical accolades and repeat business prove that moviegoers could follow the plot and enjoyed the movie's story; any minor inconsistencies are insubstantial when compared to all the things it gets right.
