5.0 out of 5 stars A long time ago in a galaxy far far away..., 20 Jan 2014
This review is from: Star Wars: The Complete Saga [Blu-ray] [1977] (Blu-ray)
Not quite the complete saga anymore with new films being released from 2015 onwards, this is still a stunning bluray boxset of both the original classic trilogy and the often unfairly slated prequels. The picture and sound quality is fantastic, cleaned up and of course George Lucas can't resist tinkering and adding yet more changes which is why i personally think the Disney buy out is a good thing but that's another argument for another time. The original trilogy is superb, one of the greatest film trilogies of all time that introduced me to my love of films and scifi all those years ago. Sadly the original theatrical releases aren't included here so it will be worth hanging on to the dvds for those but the special edition versions do look fantastic and of course are still great films. Star Wars A New Hope of course sees the story of farm boy Luke Skywalker who gets a message from a princess begging for help and goes off to rescue her from the clutches of the evil Galactic Empire and Darth Vader. A thrilling film from start to finish with great performances from the whole cast and superb cleaned up special effects. The Empire Strikes Back sees Luke begin his training as a Jedi while Darth Vader becomes obsessed with finding him leading to an epic confrontation and cliffhanger. A darker film and again a thrilling film from start to finish with great performances and superb cleaned up special effects. Return Of The Jedi, the final film in the original trilogy sees Luke and Leia rescue Han from Jabba The Hutt picking up from where the cliffhanging ending of Empire Strikes Back left off and sees the final battle between the Rebels and the Empire. The Phantom Menace, the first of the prequels and for me the weakest Star Wars film but still has its moments and is good fun and sees Anakin Skywalker as a young slave the boy who will one day become Darth Vader meet a young Obi Wan Kenobi and his Jedi master. Some good performances especially Liam Neeson and Ewan Mcgregor while sadly Jake Lloyd can't act and Jar Jar Binks is one of cinema's biggest embarrasments but does have the impressive villain Darth Maul. Attack Of The Clones picks up several years later with Anakin being trained as a Jedi. An Improvement on The Phantom Menace but still not as good as the original trilogy with a wooden Hayden Christensen as a now adult Anakin but with good action and effects. Revenge Of The Sith sees the downfall of Anakin and the rise of Darth Vader and is the darkest and best of the prequels neatly bridging the gap between trilogies. An excellent essential boxset with some terrific extras.
