This movie exceeded my wildest dreams. Though many fans were put off by the first two "prequels" this third installment will bring them back to the force. The passion and dramatic fight scenes will remind fans of the good ol' star wars movies and also surprise them. Four thumbs up!

Star Wars Episode 3: The Revenge of The Sith: This movie blows all of the other prequels (Phantom and Clones) out of proportion. The cinematography is breathtaking and the movie is as intense as Lord of the rings the return of the king. I would recommend this movie to anyone who loves ACTION!

Editors Note
Note The Force is with us in EPISODE III: REVENGE OF THE SITH, the final chapter of the six-part STAR WARS series, which began a long time ago (1977) in a galaxy far, far away... and is now complete in its cyclical perfection. This visually awe-striking kaleidoscope of interplanetary imagination features the unmatched digital animation and special effects of George Lucas's Industrial Light and Magic. With pink and orange skies casting a golden sheen over magnificent landscapes through which space ships dart and light sabers flash, the spectacle of the film, while hypnotizing, is but a complement to the intense, crucial plot.^Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) remains the Jedi apprentice of master Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor). Battling dark forces that threaten the Republic, the duo quickly eliminates enemy Count Dooku (Christopher Lee), and Anakin proves--as he states more than once--that his powers have doubled. An intimidating warrior with superior knowledge of the Force, Anakin becomes the pet of Chancellor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid), who is connected to the dark side. Meanwhile, Padme (Natalie Portman), the senator and former queen who is secretly married to Anakin, is pregnant, and Anakin is tortured by dreams of her dying in childbirth. With Obi-Wan on Utapau battling cyborg General Grievous (Matthew Wood), and Yoda (Frank Oz) joining the Wookiees of Kashyyyk, the sage warnings of the Jedi council (Samuel L. Jackson, Jimmy Smits) go unheard by Anakin. His moodiness and glowering are a clear precursor to his inevitable, terrifying metamorphosis into Darth Vader, the dark leader of the evil Empire who haunts the remainder of the series. John Williams's famous orchestral score with its thunderous marching themes adds more continuity, with refrains reminding viewers of STAR WARS EPISODE IV: A NEW HOPE, in which Padme's children Luke and Leia take charge.
Reviews
New York Times "This is by far the best film in the more recent trilogy, and also the best of the four episodes Mr. Lucas has directed. That's right it's better than STAR WARS." 05/16/2005 p.E1
Los Angeles Times "[E]asily the best of the trio of STAR WARS prequels....It's not just in warfare that REVENGE's visuals excel. The film is frankly overwhelming in its ability to create a spectacular variety of alternate worlds." 05/16/2005 p.E1
USA Today "The Force is definitely with it this time....[The film] fulfills the promise of the series and rises far above its two most recent predecessors. It's the darkest of the six-film opus, but it just may be the best of the lot." 05/16/2005 p.1D
Entertainment Weekly "REVENGE OF THE SITH unfolds with a fury of consequence....Pop storytelling done effortlessly, ushering the audience into the darkness and the light." 05/27/2005 116-117

Review The saga is complete. What George Lucas began in 1977 as a little movie that took the box office by storm, he has completed in 2005 with the most heralded motion picture of the year. With the arrival of Revenge of the Sith, Lucas places the missing piece of the six-film arc that tells of the rise, fall, and redemption of Darth Vader. It's a rousing and tragic sendoff to a beloved franchise, and the best installment in the Star Wars series since 1980's The Empire Strikes Back. If this is to be the last big-screen installment of the space opera, Revenge of the Sith ushers things out on a high note. Those who have disparaged the previous two prequels (1999's The Phantom Menace and 2002's Attack of the Clones) will find few things to complain about this time around. Lucas has delivered the film that Star Wars fans have been yearning for.

Review George Lucas comes full circle in more ways than one in Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, which is the sixth -- and allegedly but not necessarily the last -- of the Star Wars movies. After Episode II got so bogged down in politics that it played like the Republic covered by C-Span, Episode III is a return to the classic space opera style that launched the series. Because the story leads up to where the original Star Wars began, we get to use the immemorial movie phrase, "This is where we came in."
