Impressive, most impressive
30 January 2004 | by JawsphobiaSee all my reviews

One of the better fan films out there. I've always thought Myra Jade would be a great character to base a TV series around. You can imagine the Emperor's Hand appearing in the background of settings we find familiar, perhaps in a Bespin shaft catching Luke's lightsaber or whatnot. Certainly something that was in dire need of being exploited. Right down to a rather good original song over the end credits, The Dark Redemption is outstanding fun. I'd like a copy.
