Mars Review: Episode VII, is an act of pure storytelling with fluency and zip, while balancing nostalgia by putting Episodes IV, V, and VI in a blender. The Force is with director J.J. Abrams and his crew who have restored the shine to a beloved story, having been destroyed by I, II & III. The Force is awakened, and will attract new generations into the Star Wars universe, indeed.
