Some grade A shitty acting in this shitty movie, folks!
Promising in its opening moments but failing to deliver in followup. I think this was tauted as being made in the spirit of the eighties’ ninja flicks. And maybe it is. Maybe I’ve just forgotten how boring they were.
What to say…. Should I mention the shouting drama performed by the really bad actors? The constant lack of steady-cam? Or the whiney “boohoo, what’s the rebels ever done for meeeeee”-scenes? Or maybe I should mention the horrible CGI – I’m certain I saw occlusion errors in some scenes. Speaking of CGI, I should probably gloss over the fact that Moff and Leia were CGI-characters. And let’s pretend to ignore the shitty dialogue, and the stereotypical table-top RPG-plot. And to even consider criticising the physics modeling would just be silly.
Oh, I know; Not as awful as Episode 2. Not quite as awful. Probably.
Oh, by the way, a happy bouncy announcy: this officially marks the (jump) start of 2017: The Year Of Weekly Cinema.
Trump willing, etc….
