Review Of Star Wars Essay, Research Paper
Star Wars Recently I was an audience member for the movie ” The Phantom Menace”, thenewest addition to the “Star Wars” series. It isn’t really an addition though, it is aprologue to the other three movies. I found that this movie had an excellent storyline, easy to follow and interestingenough to NOT get a bag of popcorn. The acting was another subject. Each of themembers seemed like they weren’t always in “character”. I can understand that the moviewas a lengthy process of making and a group of the main characters weren’t even real! Infact, 90% of the movie is computer generated. Which is good when you look at thelandscaping and effects, but having to improvise another actor when there really is justempty space is a hard feat. The dialogue of each actor was dry during some of the parts. With the exception of the computer generated characters. Also, the “evil” charactersdidn’t have much of a role in speaking yet they were a major part in the main conflict ofthe movie which was classic good versus evil.
Back to special effects. This is what made “The Phantom Menace” a seat-gripping movie. Each explosion and laser sword fight seemed to be completely real. Sound effects had enough BOOM and WHEAO to leave an ear ring. The mass size ofsome of the monsters blew me away. I was a little disappointed seeing cool lookingcreatures in the background that played no role in the movie. I guess they were justthousand dollar cameos. So maybe some people might think that “The Phantom Menace” was the greatestmovie ever made but those people will say the same about the next 2. Then you have thepeople that say the movie was a big flop or it wasn’t worth the hype. Sure it wasn’t worththe hype but even the 2nd coming of Christ wouldn’t be as publicized as “Star Wars”. Myopinion? I thought that George Lucas had another successful project that fit well intodays theaters. I wouldn’t put it at the top of my list but it is a good movie to watch. Maybe I’ll like one of the next 10 “Star Wars” better than “The Phantom Menace Long Ago, in a galaxy far far away…….
