Storyline

David Prowse, the actor who played Darth Vader at the first Star Wars Trilogy, never revealed his face during the films. He could have done it only once at "Return of the Jedi", but something happened. Another actor did that sequence and that fact marked David Prowse life for ever. Thirty years later, a young filmmaker discovers why the producers took that decision, and is determined to pay Dave a deserved tribute, almost impossible. Written by Toni Bestard & Marcos Cabotá

The longer I watched, the less I was interested...
11 February 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I agree wholeheartedly with another review which felt that the movie should have narrowed its focus. It could have been a film all about the life and career of David Prowse, the man who just happened to wear the Darth Vader costume in three Star Wars films among his many screen credits. After all, he was an incredibly interesting man and I had no idea he was a champion weightlifter and bodybuilder! Or, it could have been about the lost opportunity that Prowse had in not being able to play the face of the dying Vader...something which would have interested me very little. To cut to the chase, he wore a costume...and many folks could have done this. Sure it is sad he couldn't get the chance to be Vader's face...but that's life and he DID have other things about him that I wanted to learn about. The third area that the film went, and this annoyed me, is when it became all about the director of this documentary and his own personal quest to re-shoot the facial reveal of Vader in "Return of the Jedi"...something which interested me in no way whatsoever! In fact, in most documentaries, the less we see of the filmmaker and learn about their likes and dislikes, the better.

So, to sum it all up, I loved learning about Prowse--he seemed like a nice guy and played a lot of interesting characters (including Green Cross Man)...but stop going on and on about what Marcos Cabotá wants....it just became tedious after a while. Give us a true biography of Prowse...and that's all, please!
