Star Wars saga review part 8:
For quite a while this was my favourite of the original trilogy as it brought everything to fruition but now that I’m older and cynical you’d have to say it’s the weakest of the three.
But, not by much! This is still a damn good film! What I love about this film is that the stakes have been raised, we finally see Luke fulfil his power and get an idea of what a Jedi should be (I actually love the Jabba’s palace and sarlac sequences), also we finally see the real big bad, the Emperor. Questions are answered and details revealed, yes Vader is Luke’s father, Leia is his sister (yep gross!). The Death Star assault is great but not as great as a New Hope, feels a little too easy ditto the Ewoks taking out stormtroopers, but hey they’re stormtroopers... Ultimately it’s Luke’s final confrontation with Vader and the Emperor that makes this film and it’s so tense as we feel the Emperor probing and pushing Luke towards the dark side, this is the culmination of his hero’s journey. Vader’s final act also turns the entire trilogy on its head, the villain is redeemed and we finally see behind the mask. I actually love the final celebration scenes on Endor and don’t have an issue with the added locations (even the Naboo ‘wesa free’ moment), I hate the insertion of Hayden Christensen as Anakin’s force ghost though, came across as very rushed and unnecessary- Luke’s prob thinking “oh hey Obi Wan and Yoda and... who’s that guy?”. The Original trilogy is genius and is hard to top in terms of its solid strength. Force Awakens prob knocked this off #3 spot for me and if The Last Jedi reviews are any indication it might fall to #5 but it still a great film.
