The ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ premiere took place on Tuesday evening, and while no full reviews have been published as of yet, a number of critics couldn’t resist sharing their views on Twitter.
Full reviews of the movie are expected later this week, following the European premiere, however if these early hints are anything to go by, fans are in for a treat:
