Review

George Lucas' fable is like a child's imagination in many ways; there are endless ideas and connections which are not necessarily all that interesting. But Lucas' compelling visuals bodes for a highly atmospheric picture. There are brilliant scenes of old fashioned adventure that cover up a sometimes pulp and pretentious narrative.
