FAVORITE ORIGINAL TRILOGY CHARACTERS
Is Vader the greatest villain in movie history? Perhaps. From only 19 minutes of screen time in A New Hope, Darth Vader emerged as a force (pun intended) in social consciousness, a dark figure – relentless and merciless – seeking only destruction.
At least, this is the Vader I love the most… the mysterious behemoth behind the iron mask. Was he man or machine? Would he lead the Empire to victory? Would he kill his own son to further his goals.
Though I know the original trilogy ends with his redemption, it ends, in some ways, in a mirror image of how it began: we are told Darth Vader killed Anakin Skywalker. In the end, it’s Anakin who kills Darth Vader.
But it’s the evil Lord of the Sith who continues to capture imaginations… not Anakin Skywalker. He certainly continues to capture mine.
