140 Word Review: Fanboys
‘Fanboys’ is a film following the epic road trip of four best friends on a mission to break into Skywalker Ranch and see a copy of Star Wars Episode I, before the death of one of the four suffering from cancer. The movie isn’t a masterpiece, but it’s not supposed to be. To quote the film ‘it isn’t about the movie’.. The undeniable message of the film is found witnessing the extreme lengths fans will go to, and the friendships built around the common theme that they all have such passion for. With an impressive array of cameo appearances, and sci-fi references that will go over most people’s heads, this is a movie for fanboys, about fanboys. Often cheesy and generic. But don’t take it too seriously and you’ll walk away satisfied, and proud to be a Star Wars fan.
