Just got back from the 3AM showing -- a madhouse! -- and wanted to
share the fact that -- while technically amazing and thrill-ride
perfect at times -- it doesn't have a single character the peer of
Han, Leia, Luke, or Vader. Without character/acting, you're left with
a very linear, small-scale story.

Spoilers later, after the rest of the Western world has seen it :-)
