Here is my reaction and my in-depth review of the final episode of The Book of Boba Fett! What did YOU think? Let me know in the comments!
Overal: it felt a bit small, underwhelming. You can tell the budget was tight.
Not honoring the dead (they just take the Sanctuary as a temporary base, but why no attention to Jennifer Beals’ character Garsa Fwip?)
No return of the Sand People. The Gaffi stick to kill Bane was not enough.
No cameos. But that may have been forced and distracting
No Rancor trainer. How can you not have Danny Trejo back on screen???
NO SURPRISE. The Pykes were the bad guys all along. So predictable.
No mythology. No further exploration of the symbolism that made the first half so fascinating
Not enough Boba/Fennec interaction: they get split up, and Fennec just shows up a couple of times out of nowhere
The duel between Cad Bane and Boba Fett was over too quickly. Two old men.
Bright colored vespa’s mostly edited out, looked fine.
The mods actually acted better this time, but they still feel a bit superflous
Boba handing over the city to Black Krrsantan, the mods and Cobb Vanth.
The music. Loved the orchestral opening, the subtle Mando theme with the flutes when we see him.
The entry of Cad Bane in Mos Espa. Soooo cool.
The return of Grogu with R2!! And wearing the armor.
Teasing the duel between Boba and Cad Bane. Taking the time.
The internal betrayal of some crime families (Trandoshans, Aqualish ). Classic plot twist. The death of the poor Gamorrean Guards.
Boba Fett and Mando fighting side by side. Really cool choreography and dialogue. At the expense of Fennec Shand though.
The negotiation scene with the Majordomo. Hilarious.
The amazing Droidekas (Scorpeneks)
The Rancor scenes
Seeing Grogu reunited with Din Djarin (although a bit too rushed)
The final duel between Boba and cad Bane mirroring Darth Vader vs Obi-Wan in ANH
The King Kong Scene with the Rancor
Grogu calming the Rancor and falling asleep like a kitten next to a big dog.
The Mandalorian and Grogu in the Naboo fighter. Feels like old times. Heading off to new adventures.
What’s next for Boba Fett and Fennec?
