Storyline

Fun experience, in dire need of upgrade.
9 February 2002 | by SharonCAndersonSee all my reviews

It's a great ride, I'll give you that. It truly invokes the trench-run from "Star Wars: Episode IV" very vividly, and it causes the old feelings of nostalgia to rise up. But seriously Mr. Lucas, the technology is coming into it's 15th year. Being in how everything in Disneyland is evolving so rapidly, would it be so hard just to sink a million bucks into a new 15 minute real with updated special FX?
