James Cameron Doesn’t Like Star Wars: The Force Awakens That Much. Why? [VIDEO]

MOVIE NEWS – James Cameron shared his feelings about J.J. AbramsStar Wars: The Force Awakens, telling that it lacks one important thing.

Last month, the box office run of Star Wars: The Force Awakens broke records with a massive $936.6 million domestically and $2.06 billion worldwide. The domestic score crushed the record of $760.5 million by James Cameron‘s Avatar back in 2009, but the global score still couldn’t surpass Avatar‘s $2.7 billion take. While Cameron continues to prepare his long-awaited Avatar sequels, he recently spoke about his feelings about the movie that broke his record, and it isn’t exactly a glowing review.

In a new interview with the filmmaker he doesn’t necessarily criticize The Force Awakens, but it’s still clear that he is a bigger fan of the originals.

George Lucas is a friend of mine, and he and I were having a good conversation the other day about it. I don’t want to say too much about the film. I also have a lot of respect for J.J. Abrams, and I want to say where they’re taking it next, see what they’re doing with it. I have to say that I felt that George’s group of six films had more innovative visual imagination. This film was more of a retrenchment to things you had seen before and characters you have seen before, and it took a few baby steps forward with new characters. So for me, the jury’s out. I want to see where they go with it.”

Take a look at a portion of James Cameron‘s interview below where he shares his thoughts on Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
