Star Wars III - Revenge of the Sith

The anticipation. Another flop destroying the credibility of the franchise or a critical hit reviving the series?

Thankfully it was the latter. For the first 30 minutes I was thinking "When are they going to ruin it and where is that insufferable Jar-Jar?". Alas, 30 minutes glided into an hour and all the plot nuances began to set themselves up for episode IV. Everything fitted together like a well oiled Millennium Falcon going into hyperspace.

It's impossible to review the film without giving away significant plot so I will just say that the film is a resounding success and I was so psyched that I went home and watched episode IV to "see what happens" from the loose threads that episode III set up. It was like watching it for the first time and the references to past events the film were no longer just pieces of dialogue but previous films in an of itself i.e. the Clone Wars.

The CGI effects are also leaps and bounds ahead of the first two films and the cityscape shots are breathtaking. I would advise going to watch this one in the cinema. Finally Lucas has delivered a film worth paying for.

I would give this film 4 deathstars out of 5.
