Star Wars: The Force Awaken has smashed box-office records around the world and most movie-goers claimed it to be a franchise-saver of some sort. However, not all was pleased by the film. Though many believe that the film was great, the Avatar/Alien director James Cameron seems to dislike J.J Abram’s Star Wars: The Force Awaken. Well, he did not say it directly, I’m pretty sure you can read between the lines.
James Cameron has said that J.J Abrams reboot lacked the “innovative visual imagination” of the original film directed by his old friend George Lucas. Although the fill introduced new set of characters, he noted that this film was more of a retrenchment to things that audience have seen before.
“I don’t want to say too much about the film cos I also have a lot of respect for JJ Abrams, and I want to see where they’re taking it next, to see what they’re doing with it,” he said.
“I have to say that I felt that George’s group of six films had more innovative visual imagination, and this film was more of a retrenchment to things you had seen before and characters you had seen before, and it took a few baby steps forward with new characters. So for me the jury’s out, I wanna see where they go with it.”
So what's your opinion about the criticism of James Cameron to the film?
