I am with you on this. If you look at all the theories that where written before the movie came out some of them had really good story telling in it. The problem is that disney played to much on save.
Another problem i have with the movie is the hole plot about the map. I supposed the map has to go to an old Jedi temple. And thats why luke is there. But the whole movie it is reffered to the map to Luke. Thats just stupid and gives more questions then answers.
In total the movie is still a good one to see. But it really depands on the next movie to get the story a little bit in te right direction. But i am afraid it will be more save decisions and less story telling.
