Brilliant! Better than Phantom Menace!
21 April 2002 | by (Oceania) – See all my reviews

Wow, I was so impressed after seeing this I had to comment on it. Not only is it a funny idea (Stormtrooper COPS show) but the film is rather well done. There are well produced scenes, with flying speed-crafts and AT-STs. I was impressed with the aesthetic aspect... it's just like watching the world of the real Star Wars. In fact, to me, it was WAY more entertaining than Phantom Menace. I hope they do another Troops episode... And I hope more of these little underground (but very well done) Star Wars movies keep comin! If you can't find this movie in your local theatre or video store (OK, you won't) search for it with KAZAA and you'll find it no problem. Enjoy.
