Darth Maul: Apprentice full movie review - The movie Darth Maul deserved. I'd love to see more.
I find it outstanding how passionate fans can make a better star wars film than big Hollywood directors from time to time. Lord knows this film has true heart and soul put into it.
Lets keep it simple
Action: Fantastic, good choreography, solid acting, very well executed and honestly surprisingly damn good considering its a fan- film.
Story: Darth Maul becoming a true sith. Its great. And I love how we finally see his true potential which was only depicted properly in the comics unlike Phantom Menace. Really happy to see him done justice.
Effects: They are really good. Both in regard to visuals and sound. The lightsabers look great, believable, the sound design is awesome and the soundtrack fits quite well too.
Actors and costumes: It works. Really damn well. Darth Maul looks terrifying and very very convincing. Costumes are great, the movie doesn't look cheap. One thing though. I was finding it hilarious how the jedi master with them looked like Pewdiepie. Didn't kill anything though because he was cool and the dialog with the terrified padawan was a really nice touch to portray the Jedi as more than just practice for Maul. Not to mention the small but cool character progression of the padawan when she decides to take a final stand against Maul although all odds were against her.
Bottomline: I really love this film. I wish it was longer. I want more like this. Definitely the best Star Wars fan-film I've ever seen.
Thank you to the actors, directors and writers for this. 8 out of 10. Fantastic fan-film. A must see for all Star Wars fans as well as Maul fans who hated Lucas not doing him justice in Phantom Menace. This is your film.
Hope to see more like this.
