Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode 4 A Short Review
"Obi-Wan Kenobi" has returned to believable science fiction corridors.
Ewan McGregor continues to show why he is so important to the galaxy far, far away.
The episode never quite matches "The Book of Boba Fett's" strong mix of history, emotion, and world-building.
It's practically impossible to picture this show without Ewan McGregor.
The lighting in the episode is also praised, particularly Obi-usage Wan's of a lightsaber in the dark.
The writing prioritises action over character beats.
Reva and Leia's scenes together had to be scary but not horrifying, revealing but not too much.
Reva is played by Moses Ingram. She pulls off a blend of terrifying wickedness and almost purposeful awkwardness.
Star Wars continues to pique your interest in the off-screen experiences of minor characters.
Vivien Lyra Blair keeps shining, her own royal-trained authority dazzling and then destroying hearts.
I wish the script had provided more detail about when and why she got disillusioned. This episode shines at tying together the action-packed plot threads of several characters.
