George Lucasin parjattu Tähtien sota: Episodi I - Pimeä uhka on kiinnostava yhdistelmä intergalaktista politiikkaa ja lasten elokuvia. Kaltaiseni katsoja koittaa rämpiä tässä suossa ja nauttia kaikesta mistä nauttia voi - lopun valomiekkataistelu on cool, alkutekstiosio komia ja... kai leffassa muitakin hyviä juttuja on. Jokin leffassa kuitenkin toimii, sillä sen katsoo yleensä ongelmitta sarjan osana - välillä tosin kirosanojen kera. Heikoin Star Wars -elokuva.
Low-rated Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace is an interesting combination of intergalactic politics and kids' movie. For me this film is pretty much just trying to manage and enjoy everything I could - the lightsaber fight in the end is cool, opening sequence is awesome and... maybe something else too. Something in the film is still successful, it works okay as a part of the series and it doesn't hurt too much to watch it - what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. The weakest Star Wars film without a doubt.
STAR WARS: EPISODE I - THE PHANTOM MENACE (1999) - FILM REVIEW
SYNOPSIS: Two Jedi Knights 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.
As a massive “Star Wars” fan and while “The Phantom Menace” is considered the weakest of the saga in my opinion “Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones” is the weakest which I’ll cover in another review however “The Phantom Menace” does have it’s problems compared to how great the original trilogy is. The Anakin Skywalker arc is kinda stretched out a little bit and spoilers if you haven’t seen it and I’m sure pretty much every “Star Wars” fan has unless your a newcomer so a spoiler warning for just in case. I felt like Darth Maul was killed off too soon, I mean just imagine how badass he would have been if he was in all 3 films in the prequel trilogy. My favourite scene aside from Darth Maul is the pod racing, it’s fun and entertaining to watch while most people say Jar Jar Binks ruined “Star Wars” I wouldn’t say he’s an awful character but definitely isn’t the strongest I just don’t think he’s as bad as what the haters say he is. The battle scenes are awesome and some pretty badass lightsaber fights too especially Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn fighting the droids is really awesome to watch too so overall it’s not the strongest film in the “Star Wars”’saga but still fairly decent to watch.
✨Day 10, Favorite Star Wars photo: Me meeting Darth Maul himself
Yeah I will admit that this is a little bit of a cop-out as it's not a actually a Star Wars photo. But considering that Darth Maul is Ray Park's most iconic role, I like to think that it counts to some degree. Getting a chance to meet Ray Park was a great honor since, in addition to Darth Maul, I loved his role in other movies like Snake Eyes in G.I Joe and Toad in X-Men. Getting a chance to meet any cast who was in Star Wars is a real great honor so meeting the baddest Sith in the galaxy was the greatest honor. So this is what I pick as my favorite Star Wars photo. As for Mr. Park, I look forward to seeing any upcoming projects in the near future👍 #30daysofstarwars#30daysofstarwarschallenge#starwars#raypark#darthmaul#thephantommenace#starwarsepisodeithephantommenace#starwarsepisode1thephantommenace#starwarsepisode1
Star Wars Episode I is arguably the 2nd worst movie in the entire Star Wars saga. From the stupidity of Jar-Jar Binks, the tiresome length of the pod races, to Jake Lloyd's horrible acting, this film is filled with so many issues that nowadays I find myself skipping scenes whenever I watch it. Not to mention the horribly drawn-out politics and the midichlorians *shudder*. There are a few shining lights however. It's pretty much universally accepted that Darth Maul was a super awesome villain and his fight with Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan was one of the best in the entire saga. Qui-Gon was also an awesome Jedi, and it was fun to see where Obi-Wan Kenobi got his start. Honestly, with as many flaws as the movie has, it's still a pretty fun flick and it's one that I usually end up watching after I bad-mouth it just to make sure I'm remembering it correctly.
