Excellent job by Mark Hamill
13 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

I tuned into this one night when I was channel surfing and took about twenty minutes to decide for sure that this was, indeed, Mark Hamill. I was extremely impressed. This character was as far from Luke Skywalker as you could get and stay in the same galaxy. Never have seen the entire movie, can't say as how I was really impressed with it, but I will never forget Mark's performance here. After about twenty minutes I was ready to climb through the screen so I could catch him myself!! Way to go, Mark!!
