After watching The Empire Strikes back, I decided to watch the rest of the saga in Machete order.
And wow, jarring.
The acting is so bad and the dialogue is so clunky it feels like a middle school readthrough of Shakespeare. Everything is badly super-imposed on greenscreens so the lighting is terrible and the environments look fake. The action sequences feel like someone messing around with the toys; there's no physics to them so the whole thing feels like it has no stakes.
