Here we are…we’ve made it. Tonight (December 17), Star Wars: The Force Awakens will open in select theaters, and tomorrow (December 18), the rest of the world will get to see the first live-action Star Wars film in ten years. Star Wars fans are like not other, and their passion comes through in many different ways. From banding together to get J.J. Abrams to grant a dying man’s last wish, to standing in line for two weeks before The Force Awakens premieres, the Star Wars fanbase really is the best.
Another fun thing the Star Wars fanbase does — quite often — is make fanmade films. Too often, these films are poorly filmed, terribly acted, and the fight scenes are horribly choreographed…still though, the passion and love for Star Wars comes through, even in the worst of these fanfilms. However, on rare occasions, someone will produce a quality film, where the action is exciting, the acting is done well, and the fight-choreography is spoton.
This is the case of Ronnie Street Stunts film, Star Wars Parkour Battle – The Flow Awakens. Check it out:
So, we’ve got two Jedi (one looking an awful lot like Rey) encountering Kylo Ren. A chase ensues where Jedi and Sith alike, use Parkour to traverse the rocky landscape. What sticks out to me in the film, is not the fun use of Parkour, but the really quality fight choreography. The Lightsaber battles were actually on par with feature-film action sequences. I’ve watched this film a few times now, and I’ve got to say, it’s better than at least on of the prequels…okay, I’m only partly kidding.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters worldwide tonight (December 17), and tomorrow (December 18).
