Podcast: Shane McCarthy reviews Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Drive
“The movie was sensational…it brings the spirit, the humour and the adventure back.”
For the past three days, McCarthy has been on a hiatus from all forms of social media, just to ensure his first viewing experience was not ruined.
“I went in knowing nothing, and what an incredible experience.The characters are wonderful and so different from each other, and there are so many great little moments that you can’t help but laugh at.”

Being the good sport that he is, McCarthy wouldn’t deny or confirm if Mark Hamill was in the movie, but parted with these words for fans who haven’t yet booked their tickets.
“What an amazing film – Star Wars is back. The adventure is there, go and see it, take your kids. Go and give a new generation something to love.”
