On the whole I enjoyed it, but wasn't blown away by it. They got the cast pretty much spot on, except for Gleeson as the General. He just didn't have the gravitas for the role, and hammed up the bad guy shtick quite a bit. He is no Peter Cushing, that's for sure.
I'm going to call it and say Rey is Luke's daughter. It would explain her power being at least on a par with Renn's. I know they've written off the expanded universe, but the fact they left in the bit about Han and Leia's son going to the dark side means it's still a possibility.
I agree about Phasma. From all the marketing you'd think she was a major player in the movie. I'd say we haven't seen the last of her though.
