This is a very solid edit. The Force Awakens is not a perfect film and there's only so much you can do with it. This edit does a good job but I wish more things had been cut.

Pros:
Forced humor removed
Finn's character being somewhat obnoxious and over the top removed
Scenes cut down that had previously went on too long
Very nice audio editing during Rey's lightsaber vision

Cons:
Han's no look shooting still there
Finn vs Stormtrooper electro-rifle fight still there
The flash of Vader during Rey's lightsaber vision stood out to me as not fitting quite fitting in
Rey gets a hug but not Chewie. Is there a way to remove this whole scene?
When they go to deactivate the shield, the part with Phasma is removed which is ok Since it involves Finn being obnoxious, but it makes you ask why they're in the base. All they do is go inside, find Rey, and then leave. It's not a huge deal but it does tend to stick out. If you never saw the original you might not notice though.

Overall:
Solid edit but could have gone a bit further in cutting.
