Samuel L. Jackson takes a swipe at The Force Awakens

The actor who played Mace Windu has a muted opinion of new Star Wars movie The Force Awakens

While promoting The Hateful Eight on Popcorn with Peter Travers, Samuel L. Jackson was asked what he thought of the new Star Wars Movie.

Jackson’s opinion was rather underwhelming and conflicted with the current popular opinion.

“It’s done in the spirit of the Star Wars films.”

Jackson said in a muted way with a grin on his face.

“It’s adventuresome and exciting, in a way…”

Jackson then made a clear potshot at the younger stars of The Force Awakens…

“I think that the kids need to go to Lightsaber Fight School, but…!”

Well, Jackson may have a point, then we have two more Star Wars movies to have some hopefully awesome fight scenes.

I wonder if he will get criticism from fans, seeing as Mace Windu was probably not the greatest Star Wars character to feature so prominently.

Let me know your thoughts in the comments, were the fight scenes in The Force Awakens lame?

  1. I liked the fight scenes in TFA more than the dance-like, over-choreographed kata we saw in I-III, tbh. I liked the brutality and lack of acrobatics in the new movie’s two big melee fights.

    1. Totally agree. I never liked the style of the fights in the prequels. I think it’s a good example of faster not necessarily being better. They were fluid, but lacked emotion whereas the fights in TFA and the original movies were more like a proper confrontation, a silent dialog between two characters.

  2. “Jedi Fight School”… meaning they needed training. A key plot hole in the movie. So much expertise in Jedi and the Force without any training. And if there’s one common theme to all 6 Lucas movies it’s that Jedi MUST be trained.
