The Sequel Trilogy feels oddly like films made for people who haven't seen Star Wars before. They are big, and bombastic, and bloated. However, although the story was for the most part a sad deconstructionist reimagining of the Original Trilogy, I did find some enjoyment in the outdoor shots, the effects, and the setpieces. Subjectzero's 3-in-1 takes the deconstructionism out of the trilogy and leaves its strengths mostly intact with a new story that works pretty well. It feels very experimental and there is room for improvement (was very distracted by a grammar mistake in the opening crawl), with some out-of-place shots here and there and some framerate stutters. That said, there were some great, inspired ideas here, and I enjoyed this edit more than I do the originals. Would love to see a '2.0' or 'revisited' version if it ever happens.
