My god. Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi is a great movie. It was a pretty good series. But it is a great movie.

I can't believe that almost half of the run time has been cut out, and I didn't miss it at all. Less is absolutely more with this story. This version feels less like a drawn-out, redundant retread of A New Hope and more like a deep dive into Obi-Wan's character, using familiar Star Wars structures as a framework.

It's much faster paced than the series. It feels like a John Wick movie, if John Wick were a Jedi. Reva's subplot is streamlined and makes a lot more sense. The Obi-Wan vs. Vader duel is allowed to play out uninterrupted.

Excellent, excellent work.
