Star Wars: Episode II - The Darkness Consumes


This video seems to focus around two main characters: a dark Jedi and Grand Admiral Thrawn. The storyline continuity between Thrawn and the events unfolding in the story were very good - right down

to the ysailimiri and preparation for the Battle of Bilbringi. I did find a few things unsettling, however, though as the story revolves around a few of them we can chalk it up to \"artistic license\". On to the gripes. I\'ll start with the storyline quirks first before I get into technical stuff. First of all Thrawn\'s voice actor... I don\'t want to say he\'s horrible, because that would be untrue and might insult the actor. He doesn\'t match the character, however. At all. He does not sound like a tactician, or even an Imperial Officer. He does not have the sound of calculating precision in his voice, a trait Thrawn was well known for. So while the actor did a good job voicing the lines, he just didn\'t fit the role very well. Captain Pellaeon\'s voice actor, however, seemed quite good and fit the role of an aging Imperial officer very well. Another question I had was why Thrawn would be sitting in Darth Vader\'s pod... thingy. And why there would be a mysterious Super Star Destroyer that we\'ve never heard of roaming the galaxy... and I won\'t even start with the smattering of random dark Jedi. During the meeting with the Imperial leaders, I found it strange that Rukh was weilding a blaster rifle. I seem to recall him favoring a knife, and he was not the type to even be standing out in front. He preferred to stay in the shadows and strike under the cloak of surprise. Oh, and did we notice that Thrawn was holding a lightsaber in one scene? :p Anyway, all that stuff is really quite little, and if you\'re not an EU buff you probably wouldn\'t have noticed much of it anyway. On to the good. I already mentioned that Gilad Pellaeon\'s voice actor was quite good, but I was also impressed with the actual filming style. The director obviously knows what he\'s doing, and not only did he film the character sequences well, but he used several different games to get all the effects he wanted. Using the freecam in X-wing Alliance was a stroke of sheer genius, and I\'m sure all of you will agree with me that it added a new dimension to the video. Some more pans in the Jedi Academy sequences would have been nice, but I know it\'s difficult to do, and it\'s better to leave them out than use them and risk messing them up. I think my favorite part in the video, in tems of technicalities, was the conversation with the Rodian. She was [i]actually[/i] speaking Huttese! And yes, Rodians do speak Huttese instead of Rodese most of the time, so that\'s accurate. I couldn\'t sit down and translate all of it to see if it was perfectly accurate, but I can say it was probably close in certain areas. She said \"478\" instead of \"178\", but two out of three is good ;). Overall a very excellently made story. A little large in size when compared to the actual resolution and quality, but well worth a download if you\'re looking for a good story. I\'d recommend giving it a watch, especially for those who enjoy the Expanded Universe and the Thrawn trilogy in particular.
