Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace


USA 1999, 130 minutes
Dir. George Lucas
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Science Fiction / Fantasy, Outer Space

Topics: Sequelitis.


Aroview: Flashy revival of the billion-dollar STAR WARS money-spinner, jammed full of digital landscapes, action set pieces and good-vs-evil morality, taking the saga back fifty years in time to the inception of the Evil Empire.

Will reward the hardcore fans and thrill younger minds (especially as the 'hero' is a bratty 8-year old), though more sceptical viewers will find the universe-according-to-George-Lucas even more predictable and po-faced than usual, notwithstanding the collective charisma of the cast.
