This is a better-than-most fanfilm short. The story is well-done, the acting is good, the concept is good. But like so very many shorts it fizzles out at the end like a light saber with a short. Pfffttt over. And that's a shame.
If this was a teaser for a series, I'd give it full thumbs up. But as a stand-alone short it just leaves the viewer hanging, trying to make some kind of point but failing miserably.
Aside from that one flaw, it's excellent. I like how for once it portrays the Force as something formidable and the light saber as a secondary and non-essential weapon. But then it doesn't and we're left with yet another light saber fight in the forest (how many times are we going to see that concept repeated in these shorts? Come on people... get a new plot clue!). Still, worth a watch. I give it a 6-star "better than average" rating. They'd have to do a bit more with it to rate with the big dogs.
