Philppe's film provides plenty of laughs and is fascinating to watch.

Overall, this film reflects itself; an outdated amateur display of pretentious commentary and online skits, devoid of credibility, insight or actual debate.

Fans who had seen the original more times than going on dates during adolescents complained it diminished Solo's character from being "dangerous" and "unpredictable".

The strength of this documentary is that the fans "against" Mr. Lucas make some compelling cases as to why the Star Wars creator has come under such scrutiny as of late.

I'd argue the last 3rd of the film dragged on a little, and began to repeat itself a lot.

An Amateur Display of Pretentious Commentary and Online Skits .

Most of the interviewees were incessantly pretentious and literally took everything seriously, not to mention coming off as 'Whiny Ass Big Babies' who really got on my nerve.

It is an entertaining and well put together film featuring hilarious Star Wars fan film clips and energy-charged interview clips.

It would have been interesting if the sudden change of heart were explained, but no, it's more like a sarcastic attack punctuated with a very contrived "No offense!

The interviews are fascinating.

Boy, was I wrong and in fact this documentary is one of the most entertaining and well-made that I've seen in a very long time.

This movie is worth watching just to listen to and watch the passion the fans have and how they almost crucify Lucas for what he did with the prequels.

Enjoyed it immensely.

Overall, this is an extremely entertaining documentary that will appeal to all viewers, not just "Star Wars" fans.

I found the film entertaining, funny and informative.

I personally think this behaviour and these beliefs are outdated, exhausted, boring and out-of-touch with reality.

An extremely entertaining for-the-fans movie about what people thought of the prequels.

George Lucas immensely entertaining to watch, as I've now done so several times, making this my personal favourite documentary.

Phillippe dedicates to the man from Modesto, California a love letter that's truly complicated, and to us a documentary that's just fascinating on all levels.

It plays out as a bizarre, but highly entertaining, mash-up of love letter, trial, intervention, and therapy session, culminating in a general feeling of hope.
