The end of the war is near; The Galactic Republic is in total disarray     the Galaxy is being torn in two by the ensuing conflict on every front. In the midst of the Clone Wars Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker is grappling with his feelings for his wife and his friends and his desires   for more power. But little does Anakin  know  is that he is part of a much larger plot, a plot  that has been in the making for ten years, a plot to destroy all that is good and just  in the Galaxy  in the Republic. This plot has been orchestrated from the inside and has been  played out  to the  utmost success  and is now time for it to come center stage as an ancient evil  is about to make it's return  to make the galaxy know, " Revenge of the Sith".

 

 

 

George Lucas' finale and the finale chapter of the Star Wars saga   "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith"  is as glorious as  it is breathtaking, it's a film that   is more superior  than the first two films(Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones)  in depth of character,  visuals,  emotional depth  and intensity. "Revenge of the Sith" is a powerful and heartbreaking finale  to the prequel trilogy  it's a film that not only delivers what the audience expects and then some  it's more refined then the first two but  less  soaring and  thought provoking  then original three. This finale is worthy of being up there with the other great Star Wars films( The Empire Strikes Back, A New Hope, Return of the Jedi)  it doesn't leave you in the dark about anything   it gives you the full picture and asks you simple to sit back and watch the fire works. "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the sith" may or may not impress die-hard fans and will remain a standout amongst Science Fiction. 

 

 

Ewan McGregor turns in a strong and quietly powerful performance in his final outing as Obi Wan Kenobi, McGregor was stale and bland in his first two outings but with this third installment, McGregor steps up his game and goes all out.  What I like  most about his performance  is that  he doesn't try to be fantastic or over the top  he instead settles for a more stable and grounded performance  than trying to wow you  and inadvertently  he does.  Hayden Christensen delivers a better performance  than he did in "Attack of the Clones"  but still has no passion for the art of acting,  he lazily work his way through the movie   he tries to be convincing but he just chews the lines and spits them out like there nothing. However, I will commend him for actually acting, if only for a little while. The rest of the cast including Christopher Lee, Ian McDiarmid, Frank Oz, Anthony Daniels, Jimmy Smits, Samuel L. Jackson, Matthew Wood and Temuera Morrison all turn in great supporting performances  including the return of James Earl Jones as the voice of Darth Vader. They help life this film from the abyss set by the second film and usher it into the halls of greatness.

 

 

 

 

"Revenge of the Sith" is by far the best Star Wars movie since "The Empire Strikes Back" it may never measure up to the depth and power of that film but it holds up very well against the other two films in the prequel trilogy. Coming out on top as the champion and crowning achievement of the new Star Wars era.

The Star Wars Saga is now complete....

I agree. The acting was sub-par in this one that I felt that I didn't exactly connect with its emotional impact. It should've been a lot darker; especially when the Jedi children were murdered. Good review. Don't hold back now, I like extensive reviews.

The best of the prequels and that isn't saying much. Still suffers from WAY over reliance on special effects and wooden characters not to mention a bad story but at least it FEELS like the Star Wars of old.

Flashy and fun finale to the maligned prequels. Cuts down on the yakking and closes things up cleanly with little fussing from Anakin.

Almost everyone loves Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.  I think it mostly comes from the idea that the first two movies just weren't that great and so by then audience expectations was so low that the third movie could've been Anakin sitting on a toilet for two hours and it STILL would've been better than the first two movies.  That's not to say Star Wars Episode III is really bad.  It's just to say that it still feels like it's missing something.  …

There are a ton of things I could gripe about with Episode III. I'll discuss a few below. But by and large, this is the best of the prequels and, in my eyes, ranks pretty highly as a sci-fi film.     First, the bad. This should have been more than one film. Rather than a whole film for the events in The Phantom Menace, the Clone Wars could easily have consumed a whole extra movies. Unfortunately, squeezing all of this into Revenge of the Sith means that a lot of important footage …

The stretch for me from Episode I to Episode II was painful.  I really enjoyed Episode I as nice light entertainment and waiting to see what surprises we would see.  After Episode II I couldn't care less.  The movie was painful, wooden, uncreative and stuck us with a pretty boy who whines and cries throughout most of the movies run time.    That three year span was left with almost no anticipation.  Episode III made me want to reinvest in Star Wars again.    Th …

Pros: Lavish visuals, dark plot and good performances.     Cons: None     The Bottom Line: Lucas has crafted a true classic for the ages.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot. After three long years of waiting, countless internet rumors, and high expectations, the final big screen Star Wars film, “Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith” has arrived to the delight of millions of fans worldwide.   …
