    I think this fight will have a better context after Episode 8 when we learn more about Rey & Ren. There are so many SW lightsaber fights from the previous 6 movies that sometimes we jump to conclusions about this and that of a character and their force abilities.

    Plus I think you don't want the first lightsaber fight in the new Trilogy to be too good as it may leave the next 2 movie lighsaber fights anti-climatic.

    The OT lightsaber built up the tension with each movie culminating with Luke going full darkside for a few minutes on Vader in ROTJ.

    The PT had a great fight in TPM to the rousing duel of Fates where the lightsaber fights weren't nearly as good in AOTC & ROTS.

    Does Kylo Ren think he killed Finn? It would be awesome if Finn and Kylo Ren encountered each other in VIII and Finn is like REMEMBER ME??!! And then another duel goes down between them.

    I watched an interview with Daisy Ridley saying that the scene where she is shooting at Kylo and he is coming after her was the scariest scene she's done because he's huge and she found the costume really intimidating.

    I agree, I think given lightsabers, in a snowy forest for the first time at night. It reminded me so much of the Game of Thrones first episode. The fight sequences were realistic and it moved the story forward. I would rather see something more story wise than just twirling blades of light from the prequel. Jedi lost so many fights because they had so many stupid, energy wasteful moves. I would say this was the second best light saber fight in 7 movies, I really think that ROTJ had the best final fight between Vader and Luke.

    I agree. Those fancy moves didn't help the Jedi, especially in this particular sequence:

    Well as I have said in other threads, it is more of a brawl and less of a lightsaber fight. I mean I agree that the prequels went a bit too far with the acrobatic moves (especially AOTC), but I personally find the duel between Qui Gon, Obi and Maul one of the best in the series because the choreography was just what was necessary and not silly fancy moves without any actual purpose.

    The Kylo Ren - Rey fight was a duel between one wounded experienced (but surely not completely trained) lightsaber user and an unexperienced Rey who also used her survival insticts and rage more that any skills she may possess...

    So yeah, I liked the duel, but there is a lot more to come from both of them, I believe this was only the first dish...

    I enjoyed it. It was interesting to watch. I do think that when Rey closes her eyes though, its because Kylo is looking into her mind and Rey is trying to force him out of her mind...its probably why it took her a moment to push him back because at that point, she was allowing herself to accept the power of the force that resided in her for so long. At least, thats how I see it.

    I really like it. I liked how it was clearly divided in two parts - pre- and post-Force intervention.

    In the first half, Rey is defensive and her defensive moves are clearly much better and could be attributed to her staff experience. When she tries to attack, you see she has no idea how to use a sword as she is trying to stab him. Girl, no. Totally clueless. So she runs and hacks the trees because that is the smartest thing to do.

    But, then Kylo makes his biggest mistake, he reminds her of the Force and she remembers Maz Kanata's words to close her eyes and let the Force in. The Force takes over and it's game over. It still isn't the most skilled of fights, the Force can only do so much, but it's enough for wounded and shaken Kylo Ren.

    If you watch carefully, Ren's fight with Finn is cleaner as we have two opponents that do know more about melee weapon fighting, but Kylo is playing with Finn because he needs to feel superior. But, when Finn hits him, Kylo ends him quickly. I don't think it matters to him if Finn is dead or not - ultimately, he is not important, he is just an obstacle on his way to lightsaber and Rey. What Finn did was keep him occupied long enough for Rey to regain consciousness and is able to defend herself.

    I like that fight(s) was raw, brutal and that stakes were high. While watching it, you believed that someone might lose a limb or even die. Was it as spectacular as Bespin duel? No. Mainly the emotional stakes were higher between Luke and Vader. But, it's better than any prequel flipping fight (and I even liked one or two of those).

    I'm so torn about VII. But the lightsaber action was very very good, they balanced it with dialogue and characterization with crisp scenery and contrasting colors and the moves made sense. Loved Ben slamming his own wound to kind of milk it for some Dark Side anger.

    It was everything the PT duels were not.

    No, I don't liked it. (Kylo Ren vs Finn was better)
    Harrison Ford praised the fight between Kylo Ren and Rey, but paid actors should avoid praising theirs own movies.
    It leaves a bad aftertase in the mouth and the actor/actress lose credibility in my opinion.
    Another good example of losing credibility:
    Gwendoline Christie praised her role in interviews, maybe she was encouraged to do so. (her role sounded important)
    To be honest, the Captain Phasma character is a disappointment and a good example for false advertising.

    A lot of them died because they were hit by those crazy pulse canons which you can't just block because it's airwaves .

    Yeah. The best part of the scene was the beginning where Rey snatches the lightsaber from Kylo. She was like "WTF!? (lighsaber on) IM A BAD ASS"
