Give Jango the respect he deserves
, 22 Sep 2009
Whilst Episode II was the least successful Star Wars movie, it still raked in hugh earnings though it remains the weakest of the six films (remove Jar Jar from Episode I and it's a solid start, remove the Ewoks from Episode VI and its a great finish) due to the lack of action from about the 20 minute mark after a poorly executed car chase (until the brilliant Obi-Wan/Jango face-off at about an hour in) and the huge weight placed on Hayden Christensen's shoulders in a performance that, well, isn't what it could have been. In fairness though, only Christian Bale or the late great Heath Ledger could have been able to pull that performance off, or a young Gary Oldman. Soppy love story for the most part, the story and action suffers, until the cracking arena battle, but then Jango is thrown away (partially literally)just like Maul at the end of Episode I! Anyway, the poster arrived in mint condition and can't wait to get it laminated, framed and up on my wall.
