I hate rating fan films. But they put 'em out there so...
Yet another "light saber fight in the forest". (Don't people ever get tired of making those?) The audio is exceptional, the directing, filming and choreography is good, which is why I give it 5 stars. I give it only 5 stars because it has zero story / plot, the bane of all shorts.
If you want to watch a few minutes of yet again two people having a light sabre battle in a (rather pretty and interesting) forest, this is the film for you. Beyond that this would best be classified as a "teaser". One does have to wonder: if they're going to go to the trouble of making something like this (and I'm sure it took some doing), why not make it a few minutes longer and fill out the story line a little better? Perhaps some day fans will learn that the key to a good film is a story foundation. Beyond that, it's just fancy lights and footwork among a bunch of trees. It's been done before... and we frankly don't need to see yet. another. light. saber. battle. in. the. forest.
