Writers for hire brought onto these huge projects really don’t have any creative control and are mostly doing what they’re told. You got unevenness, blazing fast pace, and emphasis on plot and fanservice because that is every single movie Abrams has made post-MI3.This might actually be closer to the source of the problem for this film, more likely than JJ Abrams being a hack director. JJ can definitely direct a film but needs a sound script as a foundation (as anyone does, really). TFA was written by the guy who wrote two of the three original films and the guy who wrote Wall-E and Toy Story 3. TLJ was written by the guy who wrote (and directed) Brick and Looper. TROS was written by the guy who wrote Batman v Superman and Justice League. Are we surprised we're getting unevenness, blazing fast pace, over-emphasis on plot and reliance on fan-service?
