Not bad, but...
21 June 2005 | by (Indiana) – See all my reviews

Good Lord! This movie needed a cinematographer. Nearly a third of the shots are out of focus! I like the concept, and for a low-budget Indie, it wasn't bad. Had some real laugh-out-loud moments, too. The Matrix allusions wore thin, but the Star Wars and convention gags were dead on.

George Starkey's Lucas was as dead on as I'd expect from a Hollywood film.

Ultimately, Jim Peterson's Hank steals the movie with his "comic relief" character that hits the nail on the head.

Director Wood's choice to play the lightsabers straight (as plastic toys and not roto-scoped light sabers) was a stroke of genius.

Unfortunately the film suffered technically. The sound and photography left much to be desired.

Worth the rent.
