Movie Review – Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back

Genuinely brilliant sequel, which manages to top the original, sees our heroes taken to some dark places in their lives. Thrilling, mythical, alternately desperate and heroic, Empire remains, for many, the pinnacle of the Star Wars saga. Storytelling prowess aside, the film is just a good old fashioned adventure yarn, in the same vein as it’s predecessor.

Movie Review – Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope

Impossible to criticise, Star Wars has a life of it’s own in cinema, and is by far one of the single most influential films ever made. Energetic and amazing, this is the film that revolutionised what cinema was capable of. Some astounding concepts and a great production ethic, Star Wars managed to overcome the fears of studio heads to become one of the most successful film of all time. Spawning five feature films, television movies, and animated serials, Star Wars was to modern film what Lord Of The Rings was to literature.

Movie Review – Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge Of The Sith

Gargantuan sci-fi epic from George Lucas, who pulls out all the stops to ensure his Star Wars prequels finish with a bang. More complex emotionally than almost any of the other SW films, the entire project hangs on the performance of Hayden Christensen being able to deliver the fallen Anakin well….. he doesn’t. Flat dialogue and an abundance of extraneous and unneccessary characters make for a bloated, and often nonsensical film, although the final act really is quite strong.

Movie Review – Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace

Inane, thrill-free sci-fi “epic” that has no soul, no sense of grandeur, and an inflated narrative that buckles under the massive onslaught of effects and ineffective storytelling. Lucas effectively trashes the work of the original trilogy, and ensures this new series is but a thinly plotted, inadequately acted, wasteful exercise in moneymaking.
