Staff Review

Randy Yard:
This film was actually a mini-series, split into four shorter sections released over a period of a month that together form a whole story. As a result, there are some marked differences in quality from the opening moments to the end. That said, if you give this film a chance, you won't be disappointed. Effects, sound editing, and humor steady improve throughout its thirteen minute running time, but it's the entertaining story and characters that make this effort stand out from the veritable sea of Star Wars brickfilms out there. It's not without flaws, but it's still an amusing film, an impressive accomplishment, and a welcome respite from the dreck that has become synonymous with the genre.
