"It's good. I mean really good. Ty Burr, Boston Globe
Editor's NoteThe 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.

Customer Reviews of Star Wars Episode Iii:revenge Of The
Best of the prequel movies6/7/2012
This is by far the best Star Wars prequel movie. It is not on par with New Hope or Empire Strikes Back, but it is probably better than Return of the Jedi. The acting is still very wooden at times, but I don't think it really detracts from the quality of the movie.
Good, but not the best Star Wars Movie1/8/2007
This is a good movie from a cinematography perspective, but overall it is a somewhat dark movie, especially from the perspective of a Star Wars movie. I own it now, but only because I wanted the entire collection (ok, and my son bugged the heck out of me too). If you are a die-hard Star Wars fan, consider it, but beware it's not the "happy" feeling, "good guy wins" type of movie like most of the other Star Wars movies are.

As Tony The Tiger would say, "It's Grrrrrrrreeeaaat!"
3 blows the others out of proportion!10/30/2005
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!
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!
