Brilliantly funny for anyone with a reasonable knowledge of Star Wars (which is everyone pretty much)
23 January 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As others have said, it doesn't really matter if you have never watched Robot Chicken but it does matter if you have seen Star Wars at least once. Unlike the Family Guy special (which now doesn't look as funny), this parody is a series of sketches that range from a few seconds to a few minutes but never longer. The quality is very high and I laughed hard and frequently as I watched it. Whether it was the simplicity of C3PO trying to get through airport security or a reimagining of the Cantina scene from the point of view of a minor character, almost all of them hit the target. Some of the jokes stand out but all of them are good at very least – there was only really one part of one sketch that I remember not getting, otherwise it had me in stitches.

The animation is superficially rough and I imagine that that is part of the charm of the series – those used to it will not notice but those coming to it for the first time (like me) might take all of five seconds to get used to it – mainly because the laughs kick in almost immediately and you don't notice anything after that. You certainly don't notice time because the special is over before it begins and leaves you wanting more. The voice work is good and the acting shows great comic timing and ability as they deliver the gags just right. Overall a wonderfully funny Star Wars parody that is done with knowledge and affection but also, more importantly, a great sense of humour and imagination.
