20th Anniversary of Phantom Menace!
Directed by: George Lucas 🎬
Stars: Liam Neeson, Ewan McGregor, Natalie Portman, Jake Lloyd, Ian McDiarmid, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker, Pernilla August and Frank Oz ✨
Two Jedi escape a hostile blockade to find allies and come across a young boy who may bring balance to the Force, but the long dormant Sith resurface to claim their old glory. 📝
Good: Liam Neeson and Ewan McGregor were the best part of the entire movie. The highlights for me are the final battle between Qui-Gon/Obi-Wan vs Darth Maul, still one of my favorites in the franchise and I actually enjoy Anakin Skywalkers pod race scene. I enjoy Jake Lloyd’s performance for the most part. Can’t leave out the legend John Williams Score!
Bad: There’s a lot that I can nitpick but for me, it really boils down to a uneven script with some wooden performances by some and poor cgi. Star Wars has always been a kid friendly franchise but the fart jokes was too much and I won’t go to deep into it but Jar Jar Janks is such a terribly written character!
Overall thoughts: Again, lightsaber battles are great, loved Qui-Gon Obi-Wan scenes together and seeing the origin of Anakin Skywalker, from a lovely kid to become Darth Vader but between the trade federation stuff and the Jar Jar jokes and the terrible last cgi battle on Naboo, I’ll just say it’s not my favorite Star Wars film. Also is it me or is it still awkward to see Padmé and Anakin flirt, I know she was supposed to be 14 and he 9/10 but still 😳 a little weird 🤷🏽♂️ At the end of the day, I’m still a Star Wars but I’m giving this a 2/5 for Phantom Menace.
