Han and Rey talk about how quickly the Millennium Falcon can make the Kessel Run. Rey thought that it managed it in 14 parsecs and Han corrects her to 12. In fact, a parsec is a unit of distance equal to approximately 31 trillion kilometers, and not a measure of time. The Kessel Run is actually a smugglers route with a distance of 18 parsecs, for the sake of avoiding imperial checkpoints. Han managed to shorten the route in distance down to 12 parsecs risking getting caught. See more »
Lor San Tekka:
This will begin to make things right. I've traveled too far and seen too much to ignore the despair in the galaxy. Without the Jedi, there can be no balance in the Force.
Well, because of you, now we have a chance. The General's been after this for a long time.
Lor San Tekka:
Oh, the General? To me, she is royalty.
Well, she certainly is that.

Unoriginal plot, characters, planets, space fighters, weapons, script ........ This movie makes the prequels look stunningly good.
You have already seen this movie before - in 1977! The original was enjoyable, this unfortunately is a predictable yawner. I actually fell asleep a various points because I knew that I wouldn't miss much.
It's tragic that this reboot has been wasted when both Rey and Finn pull off relatively good performances even if we have seen their characters before.
This is targeted at youth under 20. A re-introduction to Star Wars that will sadden and disappoint most die-hard fans.
If your over 20 years of age save your money and go see something else.
PS - Jurassic World suffers the same fate!
