Captain Jyanix Bach: Well, what we had here was that these, uh, Jawas had stolen some Imperial property and it unfortunately turned violent. These Jawas do this kind of stuff all the time, pickin' up, you know, stray droids and sellin' them off to the highest-paying customer...

I can't believe the humour.
14 May 2004 | by (Bournemouth, England) – See all my reviews

I can't believe how funny this film is. Though only 10 minutes long it compresses the amount of laughs usually found in your average, common or garden "Malcom in the Middle episode." The funniest thing is, that it represents the usual jaded view of the army, and considering it's the Empire then the actions in this film are probably highly commended by the Imperial Military.

Even funnier than when Obi-Wan plays detective "Only Imperial Stormtroopers are so precise." And furthermore, not an "I have a bad feeling about this." in sight.

9.5/10 If you haven't seen it then see it.
