Usually, stormtroopers are a prime target for derision, mockery and the general amusement of all. And then this fan film came around, and now I feel like a dick.
The film is Jakku: First Wave, and it focuses on a conversation between three stormtroopers just before heading into the battle of Jakku. It’s not a film about effects, staging, sets, or anything particularly fancy: just some well shot stormtroopers, fretting over their lives.
It’s a clean, smart effort. And it’s only 3m 30s long, so you might as well watch it now.
The movie is the only one Benjamin Eck has uploaded to YouTube. Not a bad way to start, though.
