So most fans seem to agree that RoS was a disappointing mess. However, there’s a lot of disagreement on who is responsible for it turning out that way.
Personally, I think the fault lies mostly with Abrams. All the bizarrely bad decisions seem like exactly the sort of indulgences he’d make. Cyan tint over the whole movie like his Star Trek films, constant breakneck pace, shallow story with superfluous fanservice, etc… JJ said the film we saw is his cut, after all.
