    Gene Siskel used to loathe this kind of stuff, putting a child in danger for dramatic effect. And it's not even done particularly well here. Not that I even want to contemplate such things in entertainment. It just feels distasteful.

    Glad to hear this. Probably will pass with my son who is very sensitive to that kind of stuff.

    FWIW, it never quite feels like anyone's in real danger in the ep. I'm not particularly squeamish about screen violence, but I just don't care for children being menaced so cheaply and casually. It's also a weird scene. A Sith-type trying to get tactical info out of a child.... Weird.

    This scene is not just done "causually" or poorly (though this is certainly true), it's a symptom of the *inhumanity* and banality-of-evil of Disney's/writers/directors/actors take on Star Wars/Force mythology,. If your gong to artistically portray something as fundamental to the human condition as good and evil, you first have to have a real sense of it...this deserves a more lengthy comment in the movie thread...
