Storyline

An ancient prophecy convinces the powerful Master Sorran to commence an obsessive search for Eron, a mythical place capable of giving the Chosen One infinite knowledge. For the sake of his obsession many apprentices die, and Sorran is banished and apparently slain by the leaders of his own Order. Centuries later he reappears, as if having learned to deceive death, and discovers the location of Eron with the help of a young apprentice and the reinvigorated Imperial forces. Master Zui Mar and young Hope, who is overshadowed by a terrible secret, are sent to stop him. However, the Council carefully abstain from revealing all that awaits the two warriors, and the terrible destiny they have foreseen for them. Written by Anonymous

Probably the best Fan Film thus far
29 July 2008 | by blactekSee all my reviews

I am huge star wars fan, not so much of movies but the mythologies created by them. My biggest disappointment with the prequels is that they never explored the humanity of the characters, instead just delivering on bland explanatory dialog. Such as "general grievous's ship is straight ahead" etc etc. I found none of the really interesting questions about what it would mean to be Jedi where explored, the burden of the responsibility, the internal struggle to master your fear, or even what it means to be taken from your family without choice.

Not here though I found myself actually absorbed in these characters, and believing in their humanity. I also greatly enjoyed the visual aesthetic created by the lens filter, which served to blend the CGI elements into the action more realistically.

Sorran was well filmed using occasional close ups of his face making him a menacing character, with minimal to no dialog needed to convey his power. The climatic saber battle was intense and well shot, where most have been guys simply banging sticks together this one uses a myriad of camera angles, close ups and outside action shots to convey the real urgency of people fighting to death. Something other films would do well to put thought into.

This has some great concepts, effects and impressive filmography, my only knock is the over use of choir music. A little is okay to build tension, but I felt it was little over done.

I highly recommend, but you will need to except it as great fan produced media rather than Hollywood blockbuster.
