    Until the last half-hour, when Lucas actually does establish a emotional connection between the landmark he created in 1977 and the prequel investment portfolio he laid out in 1999, the movie is one spectacularly designed letdown after another. show more

    Even for non-fans, Revenge of the Sith is engrossing, and fans of the series will likely be over the moon -- and into another galaxy -- with this film. show more

    The scenery, effects and balletic, iconic combats are perfectly wonderful, but there's an emotional black hole where the hero should be. show more

    For the casual viewer who feels like maybe all the Sith hoopla is worth checking out, well, it's like tuning in to the season finale of "24" without having watched a minute of its lead-up episodes. show more

    And still the dialogue is astonishingly feeble, the acting unforgivably wooden. To paraphrase Yoda, the only creature with truly human dimensions ever since Harrison Ford's cowboy-mechanic Han Solo departed the galaxy: Bored I am. show more

    The final episode of George Lucas' cinematic epic "Star Wars" ends the six-movie series on such a high note that one feels like yelling out, "Rewind!" Yes, rewind through more than 13 hours of bravery, treachery, new worlds, odd creatures and human frailty. show more

    All the "Star Wars" movies will continue to entertain us for many years to come. They were grand fun, and this last one's a corker. show more

    Episode III has more action per square minute, I'd guess, than any of the previous five movies, and it is spectacular. The special effects are more sophisticated than in the earlier movies, of course, but not necessarily more effective. show more

    This was a good action, adventure and dramatic Star Wars. It was long and about fell asleep, but I honestly was satisfied. This was a great ending. I liked it.

    I'm a star wars fan but I never show my fanboy side for star wars that much. But I do on some occassions. These was really good I was suprise about how good it is. So for the heck of it I'm counting down the top 6 best stars films from bad to awesome. 6: Episode 1, 5: Episode 2, 4: Episode 3, 3: Episode 6, 2: Episode 4, and 1: Episode 5. I give episode 3 a 4 out of 5.

    Movie was the biggest piece of trash ever. It only shows that Star Wars fans are mindless geeks with no life.....

    this movies plot is pure brilliant and shows how humanity is abusive with power. once you get it, you want more. because of wanting more power, it can bring tragic consequences bringing peril to others(pretty much how the movie ended with its last BS and actual ending) and changing your life.
