Revenge of the Sith
I have been vaguely aware of the story for years. This is really the transition of Anakin going from Jedi apprentice to Sith Apprentice. The emotional turmoil that is required to get someone to go from always fighting for good to good being dependent upon perspective is quite intense. This is probably the most intense of the Star Wars Saga (Episodes 1-6) so far. Yes, Anakin comes across a bit bratty at times, and undisciplined but as he was introduced into the Jedi program late (most childhood development scholars agree personality is set by age 5 & as he was considerably older than that when he started in the Jedi program it is expected he would have a different temperament and it becomes apparent in his patterns of behavior. When we toss in the torment of dreams about loosing his mother, then the actual way he lost his mother, it is to be expected that he seeks out a new paradigm for making sense of the way things need to work.

A feast for the eyes, but we all know how it ends
Judged on its own merits, Revenge of the Sith is a great movie, full of exciting action and eye-popping special effects with a little intrigue along the way. Its fatal flaw is that it was released out of sequence. I admit I was a bit miffed, sitting in a theater more than 30 years ago when the movie formerly known as "Star Wars" opened with the words "Episode IV" scrolling up the screen. Like most viewers at the time, I thought it was an odd way of imparting a 'Saturday matinee' feeling and I've subsequently wondered why George Lucas chose to start telling his epic in the middle, instead of at the beginning. In choosing to do so--and ultimately choosing to complete the tale by going back to the beginning--Lucas put himself in the unenviable position of creating a finale to the saga, the 'ending'--that was really the middle--of which the audience already knew full well. All he could really do was show us what we already knew would happen. To my mind, this decision ultimately robbed the film of much of the suspense it otherwise would have had. And there is absolutely nothing Lucas or anyone else could have done to alleviate this fact. Watching Revenge of the Sith for the first time, I found myself envying anyone--if such people actually in existence--who had managed to see the prequels as they were released without first having been exposed to the "earlier" trilogy, which composed the saga's final chapters. How much more suspenseful would the ending have been under those circumstances, to see the 'birth' of Darth Vader without knowing how he dies? I suppose the answer to that question will be left for future generations to determine, as the natural tendency will doubtless be to watch them in numerical order.
Better viewing for adults than children
My 6 year old son has dug up his fathers Star Wars Collection and is now addicted! We purchased this movie last to complete the entire series. This episode did not hold his attention as did the others. I allow him to watch the others multiple times but have only allowed him to watch this one once. It is the last in the series and is the most thought provoking. This movie tied in newer ones to the old three. From a adult perspective it was a great movie. The cast was great. You could really see Anakin's battle between good and evil. I highly recommend this movie for the adult Star Wars fans but would not recommend children seeing it. It deserves its PG-13 rating. The violence is worsened and on a different level. The scene of Anakin's transformation was pretty gorey for the sensitive viewers. The scene where the Padawon's were murdered is too much for little eyes/brains to process.
Should have been named Redemption!!!
After a sluggish part II, George Lucas had to do something great. This was almost it. Anakin is destined to be Vader by the end of this one so it's going to have a lot more action that the second did not deliver. The end is not so believeable. And the Sith just fight way too dirty. I can't believe how easy it is to pick apart the Jedi. Kenobi is in some pretty big battles but the one with Anakin is the best. It feels as if they should make another sequel to show what happened the 20 something years before Luke started his quest. It just doesn't feel complete at the end but this is probably the best of the first three. I'm not sure because I like Darth Maul a lot. But a lot of things Lucas does these days doesn't make much sense. This movie was one of the more sensible things. But plot holes, plot holes, plot holes!!! Kills me!!! Any Star Wars fan will buy anyway. 4/5
It could have been better
Star Wars Episode III brings the prequel trilogy to an end in the usual dramatic starwars fashion. This movie focuses largely in over the top lightsaber battles between the most powerful of force-users. I have several problems with this movie, and I'm not particularly disappointed with any of the actors but on the script itself. The brief dialogue and over emphasis on action sequences take away from the overarching plot, which is the rise/revenge of the sith. Darth Vader was not what I expected him to be in this movie, he was somewhat resentful of his turn toward the darkside and wared within himself at times. Not the powerhouse of the sith that would become consumed with reaching new heights of strength, but rather motivated by his love for his dying wife. On the otherhand; emperor palpatine was spot-on, an aged tyrant who has been manipulating the strings in politics for decades as well as waging a war spaning the galaxy all as a ruse for granting himself enough political power to become a dictator. The jedi as well as the rest of the allies of the republic are largely helpless or overpowered here. I liked what they did with count dooku, obi-wan, windu, and the twins; they covered a lot of bases. General Grievous, who was very interesting; it would have been fun as well as adding more depth to the movie to spend time developing his character, before killing him. There was not a real sense of loss when he died as opposed to when Darth Vader died in episode VI, in which you felt like something had happened. Its an entertaining movie with a sad tale and lots of lightsabers but you will find yourself saying: "they could have done that better".
