Rich's Spoiler-Free Review Of 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

BOSTON (CBS) -- The wait is almost over for the rest of us, but Rich Shertenlieb finagled his way into a screening of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" on Tuesday morning.

To hold us over until the movie opens for everyone Thursday night, Rich gave his spoiler-free review of the highly-anticipated installment on Wednesday morning.

For those worried that this new trilogy may follow the path of those dreadful prequels, Rich says fear not.

"For two hours and 10 minutes I didn't move. By the time it was done I don't think my mouth closed the entire time. It was a religious experience," he said.

"J.J. Abrams nailed it. He absolutely nailed this movie," said Rich. "J.J. Abrams remembered what made the original Star Wars films great."

Listen to Rich's full spoiler-free review, and hear how he got in to the screening:
