This was the best prequel out of them all. But it just wasn't interesting knowing that these effects are from our time and could be used in any movie. And there is no reason for some scenes and characters...but it was still a good movie and was highly entertained.

In special effects, Lucas has moved a galaxy beyond. In energy, not yet. Full Review
David Edelstein
George Lucas does it his way in the pallid Phantom Menace. Even cultists will wish he'd hired a director and some writers. Full Review

Washington Post
It is likely to disappoint more people than creator George Lucas would have liked. Full Review

The New York Times
It's up to snuff. It sustains the gee-whiz spirit of the series. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Not a masterpiece, but it's an example of how imagination, craftsmanship, and technological bravura can fashion superior entertainment out of something that is far from flawless. Full Review
