Did You Know?


When Ryan and Dorkman have both dropped their lightsabers they face one another ready to engage in a fist-fight, but then turn around and run to get their sabers. They had originally choreographed a hand-to-hand fight, with no weapons, but due to time constraints decided not to shoot it. So instead they had each character simultaneously change their mind for comical relief. See more »

Entertaining and involving light-sabre fight fan film
1 October 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In a rematch from the previous battle, Ryan and Michael "Dorkman" Scott go at it again in a light-sabre battle to the death.

I was drifting through cyberspace recently and came across this film and its original on the internet. Or at least I only noticed that both were available after I had watched this sequel – not the smartest but I don't think it matters. Firstly let me just do what some others have done and moan pointlessly about the lack of story and characters blah blah. OK, now that I have done that let me just say that it is OK not to have a story – many Hollywood summer blockbusters have been managing just fine without one, so why should this short be any different. A story here would not have made this film closer to its aim, which was, as the credits say, to showcase the skills of the makers.

In this regard it works and it also entertains at the same time, which is what I wanted it to do. The fight is well choreographed and although it occurs in what looks like a basement, it is exciting and engaging. Kudos to the effects because they are impressive, but I was actually more impressed with the direction. While the fight goes on the camera edits around it really well and it is here where the urgency and involvement comes from for the audience – not the fact that the sabre effects are well done (which they are).

It has the odd moment of comedy which I enjoyed and it is surprisingly entertaining. The ending is a little weak in my opinion and it felt like they had run out of ideas and settle for that as their punchline but otherwise I enjoyed it and found that it did exactly what it set out to do and did it well.
