About the Movie
Nearly two decades after the release of Star Wars: Episode I, Star Wars fans still heatedly debate the merits and the shortcomings of the controversial prequel films that brought to the world Jar Jar Binks, Darth Maul, midichlorians, and a purple lightsaber. Unsure what to make of the films, a Star Wars fan treks across country interviewing dozens in search of answers. Are the prequel films masterpiece or disaster? Is George Lucas an inconsistent hack or a champion of a singular vision? And most important of all, is there a way to bring balance to the dark and light sides of fandom? As our hero discovers, much to learn, he still has. The Prequels Strike Back was made possible through the generous contributions of time and money from fans all across the world. What resulted was a documentary that Star Wars fans deserved.
Finally, someone gets it right.
It is fairly well known that no one hates Star Wars quite like the "fans", so it is nice to see a refreshing take on the franchise that presents a logical and rational viewpoint.
A terrific documentary that shows both sides of the prequel debate. It's depth and sincerity gives the films a fair shot to be seen in a new light and fresh perspective. Highly enjoyable and a fun ride!
Unbiased, entertaining, educational.
As an average Star Wars viewer, this was enjoyable to watch even without Star Wars expertise.
