Funny even if the second half is noticeably weaker than the first
20 June 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Captain Jyanix Bach joined the Imperial Guard when he saw the news and liked the direction that the Empire was taking. Stationed on patrol on Tatooine he spends his time mainly breaking up fights and looking into minor crimes. This episode of Troops follows him and his unit on several calls; as ever the identities of the "innocent" parties are digitally concealed.

Everyone knows this film, even if they haven't seen it – it sounds like a really good idea for a really funny short film. Indeed for the first half that is what it is – it puts normal life into the extraordinary galaxy of Star Wars. The whole Jawa thing is pretty funny and had me laughing regularly. The second half of the film though is much more about connecting to the Star Wars story and it is this focus that makes the second half less funny, although it is still amusing enough to do for the few minutes it is on. It is all still a good idea though and fans will love it because it is a good spoof, just don't expect it to be as hilarious as you have heard it is.

Overall, a good fan film that is funny enough to support the short running time. It may not be as clever as it would like to be but is amusing and, for a good-looking film made by fans and available for free, it is worth seeing.
