The Alliance discovers that the Empire has built a frightening weapon and sends a team to steal the plans, hoping to find a way to destroy it.

The best part of this? Hard to say, but the best battles, space and planetary, of just about any movie I’ve seen? Or is it the stellar cast of characters, heroes and villains, included? Or maybe how they explain the “whys?” in A New Hope?

All of that and so much more. This did take a bit to get going; the setup dragged for just a while, but that’s OK. Once it got going, it dared us to hold on for the ride and that was OK, too.

I’ll highly recommend this one. I saw it in 3-D, but I didn’t really see anything that would be missed in 2-D mode, so your choice. Once the credits roll, no other scenes, so save ten minutes of your life.

Flytrap rating: 9/10
