Although yes the effect did look similar but that's because it's lighting.
Lightning looks like lightning and other than MAKING IT GREEN, lightning is going to continue to look like lightning most of the time.
I've seen shit about Harry Potter Wands vs. light sabres elsewhere on and off.
I understand this. But coupled iwth the lines, "....I've been waiting a long time for this," and that the good witch faught the lightening off with her wand which is similar to a light sabre just seemed to me
, like a shameless rip off of the Sith.
Hey, I get it - a lot of people liked the film. I wish I could have my $15 back for seeing it in Imax - oh and the 3 hours as well.
The only redeeming quality of the film IMO other than the amazing effects was the Trek trailer.
