Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith
Writer-director George Lucas completes his Star Wars trilogy with the final film Revenge of the Sith. It’s three years since the battle of Jeonosis and Jedi Master Obi-wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) and Jedi knight Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) are fighting to end the war between the Republic and Separatist forces. Yoda (voice by Frank Oz) and the Jedi council suspect Chancellor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) of becoming corrupt so they ask Anakin who is close to Palpatine to inform them of his plans for the Republic. In the meantime Anakin begins having terrible visions about his wife Padme (Natalie Portman) and with Palpatine’s encouragement, he begins turning to the Dark Side. (With no sight it’s always the dark side for me.) Eventually Palpatine appoints himself Emperor and with the help of Anakin’s final fall to the Dark Side, Mace Windu (Samuel L. Jackson) and the rest of the Jedi are fighting for their lives. This film has multiple light saber fights, space battles, an excellent story line and even some decent dialogue. Lucas does an excellent job tying all of the Star Wars movies together with this script and the transformation from Anikin to Darth Vader is superb. There are several minor flaws like a couple cheesy lines and some of the characters just show up and then disappear. The good news is Jar Jar Binks all but disappears. I was really lucky because I couldn’t see him and I didn’t have to hear him since he was only allowed 5 seconds of airtime and that was if he kept his mouth closed. Maybe the Force was with us. Revenge of the Sith is definitely better than the last two movies because the acting serves the script, not the other way around. This film is very entertaining and as Yoda would say, “This movie a B rating I give.”.
This movie has been given a PG-13 rating by the MPAA
Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
