Just saw the whole thing... takes a long time to download on 56K, perhaps other films should be split...
The visual effects were patchy, some were much better than others (eg the lightsaber duel at the end was spot on, but earlier the sabers were HUGE
, and I wasn't a fan of the laser blasts. However, I felt the same thing about solo switch, so I won't mention that...
The acting was patchy, some actors were obviously chuffed to be in a starwars film, but some of the fault could have been laid at the editing; the whole thing could have been shaved to about 30 minutes without really losing anything.
The sound was OK i thought, although the effects and music drowned out dialogue at times.
Although the choreography was well thought out, the result wasn't as frenetic as I would have liked, except during the final battle.
One thing I think you could think about is the lit sabers. For example, the jedi gone bad in reel 2 is meditating and somehow doesn't slice her own leg off
Perhaps you could paint out the swords with a reference background shot?
Enough of the critical points.
For sheer scope (It's up there with TROOPS), and the fact that I was entertained (that bit where the bad jedi moves his hands out of the way - LMAO!) I have no choice but to award 4(.5) stars.
With resources like that, you should definitely be thinking of a Matrix-type thing
Keep it up (Make me look bad)
