For the path it was set on by the previous two movies and the requirements of the following trilogy, Revenge of the Sith is pretty decent.

An okay movie. Yes it has its faults. However, the opening battle, the duel between Mace and Sidious, the Anakin/Obi-Wan and Yoda/Sidous duels are all very well done. To get more out of the plot and the mental processes of characters, read the novelization by Matthew Stover.

This movie tied it all together, without it, we would not see the dark reason behind Anakins betrayal to the Jedi order, although episode 1 and 2 were not the greatest, this was the best of the prequals, (i think)

Pop corn movie-- Overused CGI, bad acting, cheesy script, just meh fights. However, 4 stars because of the dark portrayal of Anakin.

This movie, (along with "Return of the Jedi"), are tied for my all time favorite movies. I absolutely loved how there was a display of emotion through the characters! Anakin's fall to the Dark Side and his ultimate doom during the Mustafar duel with Obi-Wan to become Darth Vader is perfect. The soundtrack complements the movie, and in all, it makes a wonderful addition to the saga!

This movie was pretty emotional. I mean, I almost cried over it, and it takes a lot to make me cry over a movie. It was awesome though. I would not recomend it for children under thirteen, maybe fifteen. The sceen where Anakin burns up is pretty graphic, plus, it's kind of depressing near the end with all the goodguys dying. But it is an awesome movie. And I didn't even get to see all of it because it kept freezing! Did I mention that Obi-Wan is awesome! He is my favorite Star Wars character. I mean, Anakin is cool, but he is way too human. Obi-Wan has some nice quirks. I love you, Obi-Wan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ANd I love Darth Vader!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And if any one is wondering, this is a girl writeing this.

PART OF A MARATHON, ONE AFTERNOON VIEWING

** Until this viewing, I had never seen this instalment **

Aniken can act now, and thankfully there's no 'newbie' in the cast this time. Thank God.

In a frantic effort to shove the final threads into place so as to dove-tail perfectly with "A New Hope", Lucas crams everything into the 145-minute experience filling every nook and cranny with explosions, colour, story points, dialogue, display panels, and anything else he can lay his hands on. Micheal Bay would look on it as being a rough edit which required more post-production work, probably, but the need for all this wasn't something for which the undertaking was altogether wise.

Surely the audience doesn't need everything explained or perfectly linked on to the second trilogy? Is there no mystery permitted in life anymore?

Yes, the creation of Darth Vader in both spiritual and physically recognizable form is accomplished — and should be, probably — but do we need to have another homage to John Ford with a brilliant sunset behind a silhouetted rancher family as an end-shot? Do we need to see our now-separated twins with their loving protectors? Did we even need to see the twins named at birth? Surely we knew who they were when Padmi was pregnant! If we follow the line of the story logically, we find out who Luke and Leia are in the later episodes! Behold! A spoiler created to spoil the spoilers we might have had!

While this may be the best of the three prequals, if the first two episodes had been stretched over three instalments and this one was not used at all, more character and story development might have been accomplished without the WHAM!! BAMM! getting in the way so much.

Pfah.

Violence: ***SPOILER*** When Anakin loses both legs and his other arm, and then catches on fire, it's pretty graphic and probably not suitable for all children. Also, many of the more beloved characters are killed in this movie. Use discretion.
