The Mandalorian Episode 3 Review: Pedro Pascal As American Sniper?

0 140

We return yet again with another chapter among Disney+’s prized shows, The Mandalorian. Starring Pedro Pascal, this episode can be thought of as predictable as most fights that go down in a typical Star Wars feature. Wait, hold up! So are we going to talk about the episode now? Well, somewhat. So turn away now if you haven’t watched the episode because we are going to review it!

Previously, we reviewed Episode 1 and Episode 2 of The Mandalorian.

The Mandalorian Episode 3: The Sin

To be honest, it’s not possible to talk about this episode without giving off bits of details. Disney+ made a good try to put action into the show, just like it should be for any Star Wars feature. However, what’s up with adding that predictable nature to it?

Pedro Pascal’s Mando, a nickname given by Greef Karga (Carl Weathers), did his job and got his reward. Around 20 Beskar Steel bricks were handed to The Mandalorian in Episode 3 which were enough to give him a completely new armor from head to toe. However, the package he delivered was too soft to simply forget, and we can absolutely relate to how he felt.

Regardless of the repercussions, The Mandalorian decides to retrieve it in and this what his sin was, hence the name of the chapter. A bounty hunter does what they are told, without question and hesitation. The hunter delivers, provides proof, receives their payment and leaves.

American Sniper or John Wick?

So when The Mandalorian sniped some Jawas back in Tatooine… Wait for a second! We now have confirmation that the planet was not Tatooine, but some measly Arvala-7. This was confirmed by Star Wars page who revealed Kuiil’s description. Anyways…

When Mando shot some Jawas in Arvala-7 we thought he was being cool and all. However, did you see him quick scope close range targets in the middle of a laser blaster firing range? That was some Bradley Cooper performance right there! Killing most and fighting his way out, this guy is absolutely nuts.

The Predictability

Now here is when we give a serious review. The episode begins with a hush. Playing things safe, not being spotted. The Mandalorian’s Episode 3 quickly shake things to create ruckus inside the hidden building of an underground Empire. Mando comes out unscathed only to be surrounded by a bunch of Guild members eying the prize of returning the target back to the “client”. In, what seems like a John Wick and American Sniper combined scenario, The Mandalorian escapes the scene without a scratch.

Yet again, we see Imperial troops as completely useless as they always are. However, that’s not it, that is so normal for us Star Wars fans. The gist of this all is that nothing that happened was something we did not see coming. Regardless, it was absolutely enjoyable to watch how it turned out. Because let’s face it, to see all the guilds members gang up against a Mandalorian really made things look like some classical western gunslinging action.
