‘Andor’ puts ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ to shame in every way

Andor is the latest Star Wars A live-action show is coming to Disney+, and it’s actually really cool.

If you want more roughness Star Wars more like rogue one than force awakens, This.not like boba fett book, This was basically the TV version of Identity Crisis. Andor actually, Star Wars universe.

Disney’s only mistake here, as far as I can tell, was releasing the first three episodes as three separate episodes. They form his one coherent chapter in this show and should have been released as one long episode instead. I think this was better for the audience. Those who quit after episode 1 or 2 may have been confused or disappointed.

Watching all three in a row gives you a very engaging arc that not only introduces you to Cassian Andor’s backstory, but also delivers some really top-notch action and suspense. , is truly outstanding, including one shootout in a factory warehouse where a giant metal beam drops as the good guys and bad guys engage in a tense shootout.

Andor (Diego Luna) is nothing more than a thief at this point. He’s in debt all over town and always seems to have new plans — he’s not a fan of the Empire, but he’s met Luthen Rael (Stellan Skarsgård), a mysterious buyer of stolen goods. sometimes reveal it.

But this time the young thief is in real trouble. He visited a very cyberpunk club in his first episode and was harassed by a pair of hostile security guards. he is looking for his sister They are looking for trouble. As he leaves, they follow and soon there is an altercation in which Andar accidentally kills one of the guards.

now it’s darker Star Wars than we are used to.Rarely Star Wars The protagonist is willing to outright murder someone to protect his own skin.

What follows is a noir-inspired murder investigation, in which security agent Cyril Khan (Kyle Soler) defies orders to cover up the murder and is intent on tracking Andor. Rael.

In a backstory flashback, Andor discovers that he comes from a little-known planet that was destroyed in a mining accident long ago. He is part of a primitive culture that seems to consist entirely of children (although the whereabouts of the adults are a mystery, I suspect they were forced into slavery or murdered by mining companies). . When he is separated from his companions and falls unconscious, a woman named Maarva Andor (Fiona Shaw) takes him off the planet and adopts him as her son.

In the current timeline, Andor is betrayed by Tim Caro (James McArdle), the boyfriend of his friend Bix (Adria Arjona), and soon Khan and his Corpo Goons are after him. What follows is a fascinating clash between the workers and the fascist security forces who are nothing more than an extension of the empire. When the guards land and begin searching for Andor, all of the employees come to life, hitting anything that makes a noise and warning everyone of the danger.

I won’t go into details, but the action scenes in episode 3 are by far the best of any other work. Obi-Wan Kenobi, Somehow managed to make the lightsaber duel between Obi-Wan and Darth Vader boring.

In fact, nearly all Andor Much better than almost everything in Obi-Wan Kenobi, This is very strange. Andor himself is a relatively minor character in the big scheme, but this is a TV show that was clearly given a far more skilful and loving treatment than the famous Jedi’s own Disney+ outing. Everything from world building to battle scenes, and perhaps most importantly, the script is so much better than cluttered and confusing. obi wan show. It is very strange that there is such a large quality difference between the two.

Andor Feels expensive. The cinematography is a stunning camera shot that perfectly complements the evocative original score. The sets are sleek and well-recreated, brimming with aliens, droids, and futuristic machines. You don’t feel cheap or rushed here.

The story is also much better obi wanof. Sure, it’s a little late at times and only really picks up on the great third episode, but at least it’s not a rambling mess that doesn’t make sense.

It’s also a very Andor story.this is this Andor. But again, this was not obi wan kenobi It used Obi-Wan more like a prop than anything else, passing between characters rather than actually being in charge.

Well. Don’t go back to the covered basin. obi wan kenobi goes down as yet another embarrassing misfire at Star Wars The franchise’s long and uneven legacy.Hopefully Andor It will continue to be as good as the first three episodes. A total of 12 episodes air every Wednesday. Episode 4 will be released this Wednesday, September 28th.I will review This is my blog you should definitely follow.
