I just got done watching Chris Conley‘s new film, Star Wars: Retribution, and I have to say I am very impressed. I know I am no film critic, but as a fellow Star Wars enthusiast I feel I can make a valid argument as to why you should watch this awesome movie.
This film has everything!
Comedy- The evil empire was making people in Athens wear jean shorts! (That’s “jorts” to you people who speak Gator). I am not one to usually laugh out loud, but in this case I could not help it. Not to mention the comedic cameos of both Todd Gurley (as a Superman type character) and Coach Mark Richt (who was oblivious to the galactic battle going on around him), both of which would make any Georgia fan smile. For comedy I give this a 5 out of 5 stars.
Drama- I was actually really impressed by the acting of the guy who played the young Jedi. I think he portrayed his emotions (fear/sadness) very well. Chris Conley also played an amazing villain. With a major death towards the end I think the film had just the right amount of drama. 4 out of 5 stars from me!
Suspense- Let me just go ahead and say 5 out of 5 stars on suspense. I loved the scenes where Khari Vion takes out a whole group of jedis! The music really also helped with the suspense of this film. Effects…sounds… A plus all around!
As to not spoil too much I have to say my favorite part was the ending. I actually got chills watching it! Also, at the very end it shows the arch and says “Hope” Interestingly enough for those of you who do not know I have the arch tattoo with the word “Hope” under it.
So just in case you have not seen it yet you should absolutely dedicate a half hour out of your time and watch it. I promise you will enjoy it!
