Max Landis is currently taking some heat on Twitter for comments about Star Wars: The Force Awakens and now has further clarified himself in the above video.

Landis wasn't big on the character of Rey, whom he says is a "Mary Sue," meaning a character written without flaws or one written unrealistically.

As Landis notes, it's just one person's opinion.

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" has a December 18, 2015 release directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and Abrams. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, and John Williams returns as the composer.

Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong'o and Gwendoline Christie will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film.
