I don’t know what I was expecting but I wasn’t expecting to be bored. Unfortunately, I was.
Minor spoilers ahead!
The opening minutes of the episode were fantastic. Seeing a flash of Kamino got me giddy, the visualization of Boba Fett’s escape from the Sarlacc Pit was disgusting and absolutely everything I’ve ever wanted, and of course, I love seeing the Tusken Raiders. That, however, was the best part of the show for me. The rest was a snooze fest for me.
The action felt stunted and nowhere near as brilliant as the action sequences from Rodriguez’s last work, “The Tragedy.” The characters we met along the way weren’t that likable. And then Boba was back in a bacta tank for a flashback rodeo again.
Oh, and yeah, WHAT THE HECK IS THAT THING?! This beast does not look like it belongs on Tatooine at all. The Krayt Dragon was awesome but this, this to me just doesn’t feel like the type of ferocious creature they should’ve run into on an arid planet like Tatooine. This thing looks like it would make more sense popping up in the swamplands of Naboo.
So overall, I’m giving it a 7 out of 10. It’s not bad, but it can be better.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
