A review of the DVD ‘Star Wars Lego: The Empire Strikes Out’ by Little M aged 5 years old

” This is a film about Star Wars made with Lego people. There are more Lego bricks than normal in it and the grass is normal.

C3PO when he can’t fight he knocked over a thing that you can’t do. He knocks over a dog walker, it is really funny because those are baddies. C3PO is a goody but the dog walkers are baddies and there are people driving them and Darth Vader is in all the dog walkers.

Anakin, who is famous and his picture is on a girl’s lunch box, dressed up as Darth Vader so that the girls who were chasing him would not recognise him.

In his ship Anakin’s hand got shot off and he said, “arghhhh…oh wait” and then he put his hand back on and it was really funny.

Mini people hung Darth Vader upside down in the desert.

This is my best film at the moment and I have watched it twice. It makes me laugh a lot. “

For a more grown up synopsis:


Your favourite characters are back to save the galaxy in LEGO® Star Wars®: The Empire Strikes Out™. The heroes of the Rebel Alliance including heroic Luke Skywalker, swaggering Han Solo and steadfast Princess Leia have no time to celebrate their victory over the Empire as a new Imperial threat arises. But as Jedi-in training Luke embarks on this next mission, he discovers that his celebrity status as a “Death-Star-Blower-Upper” can be a double-edged lightsaber when he’s constantly mobbed by crazed fans. So much for secret missions! Meanwhile, Darth Vader and Darth Maul are locked in a hilarious “Sith-ling” rivalry as they compete for the Emperor’s approval. It’s an action-packed comic adventure that’s out of this world!

The DVD was released by 20th century Fox on 18th March, the Limited Edition contains a mini Darth Vader which Little M takes everywhere with him. Lego Star Wars The Empire Strikes OutAlthough M really likes this DVD and keeps talking about it we were both disappointed at how short this film is, such a shame and not reflected in the price of the DVD either. However, obviously you do get the sought after Darth Vader figure with it.

Disclosure: We were sent the DVD to review.
