An interesting and provocative angle of the plight of the young black man growing up in terrible living conditions. All around a very well done movie, wonderful acting and character development.
Emotionally raw, simple, beautiful, and gut-wrenching. Casey delivers and extraordinary performance that will leave you with a a few tears on your cheeks, and an awful feeling in your gut (in a good way). It is masterfully crafter, beautifully shot, and incredibly well written. A simple story of a man who has lost everything....almost everything.
Incredibly articulate practical effects. Mind-blowing for the year it was filmed. Kubrick out did himself with imagination and creativity. He created this amazing new beautiful world, and you can get lost in it, if you let yourself.
I think this film lacks character development and has many a plot hole that it leaves up to the viewer to attempt to solve for themselves. With that being said, as a Star Wars fan, I gave this film a second chance in the theatres, and enjoyed it significantly more the second time. I think if you can get over the lack of character development, the, sometimes to rapid, pacing, and the lack of much of the promo-footage seen in the trailers and advertisements, this film is an acceptable and enjoyable tale in the Star Wars universe. It is exciting and fun, and has many interesting characters and settings. It is also full of easter eggs and references to appease even the most dedicated fans (however these sometimes feel shoe-horned).
If Empire is considered a 10 as far as Star Wars films go, I would consider this to be an easy 8 or 9. People have frowned upon it's similarities to ANH, but personally I think that is what makes it so lovable. It is giving fans a sense of familiarity in an otherwise totally new time period, and is exposing new inexperienced star wars viewers a tried and tested method of creating intricate amazing new worlds for them to fall in love with. All the characters are perfect, and the use of practical effects gains the trust of those opposed to the prequel trilogy. JJ really listened to what fans needed, and he delivered. It is a perfect star wars film for the seasoned fan, and a perfect introduction to a new generation of fans.
