Mandalorian season 3 review

By Therin Barnett

The newest season of The Mandalorian has come to a close and has had its share of ups and downs, to be quite frank, it also had a lackluster and campy ending.

Season 3 of The Mandalorian has maintained its quality in visuals that most have come to expect and in some circumstances, surpassed the quota that its previous seasons and past live action shows have given us.

In all honesty, this is the weakest piece of Star Wars media that has come out since the sequel trilogy, but it is still enjoyable. If you have nothing to watch then this will keep you occupied for the day at large.

Action in the Mandalorian really felt amazing and grand in scale when it needed to be, with one exception…

Spoilers for the final episode

In the fight against Moff Gideon and Bo Katan, there is an atrocious amount of spin attacks and swinging the darksaber like a baseball bat, this fight was pathetic and is almost as bad as any of the sequel trilogy fights.

The writing in The Mandalorian started off great at first but took an unexpected nose dive that no one was expecting. 

In the final battle Din Djarin and Grogu are up against three elite praetorian guards, a fight they shouldn't have won, praetorian guards have a background of being guards to Emperor Palpatine and they were beaten by the equivalent to an above average warrior and a padawan.

The first season of The Mandalorian started the show by having a man be cut in half by the waist, a real tone setter for a serious show, and yet they ended the third season like a Looney Toons episode.
