A film about the world's most dedicated Star Wars fans. From lightsaber wielding martial arts academies to a filmmaker who built the world's only life-size Millennium Falcon, from a Monster Garage-esque sculptor whose professional livelihood is building custom lightsabers to metal-bikini wearing dancers who embody Slave Leia, the film offers viewers a rare glimpse into rabid fans' personal and professional self expression that borders on obsession.
Professes to be a recent documentary, but judging by the dated and miserable quality of the video, it's clear this sat on a shelf for a long time. So poorly edited, and the subjects chosen to highlight leave much to be desired. The cover image is as shallow as the filmmaker's understanding of the Star Wars phenomenon.
Was this something? Eh, felt like a fan documentary that was only mildly intersting and would be unwatchable to anyone unsure of the sci-fi films. Also, it's like they could get some footage of Olivia Munn and Ray Park and tried to run with that as much as possible.
Even being a big Star Wars fan, this was rather dull.
Something watched out of sheer boredom and mild curiosity. Not a great documentary, but not bad either—very middling. A really good doc will get you interested in a subject (and the people) even if you're really not into it, but this one felt more like "by Star Wars fanatics, for Star Wars fanatics." I like the original trilogy (the theatrical cuts) and that's pretty much it; I personally don't see the appeal in immersing oneself so much in the franchise, and as such, I found it really boring to be focusing on the "professional light saber fighters" for longer than five minutes, for instance.
Really interesting and to be honest made me want to properly learn how to fight with a light saber. You will too if you watch it.
