Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith review

The best of the prequels (Episode I-III). Had a good plot but not enough for Anakin to turn to the dark side. They should have improved the character build-up instead of worrying about the effects. The fight scenes were really impressive and well coordinated. Natalie Portman and Ewan McGregor stretched their acting prowess on this one. Ian McDiarmid was splendid with the various roles he played. Unfortunately, you can never feel any remorse when Hayden Christensen portrays an angry Anakin. I felt the prequels as a whole could have been better if Lucas was behind the camera from the very beginning, then the quality of the films would be like this. Some coo lines: Palpatine - "It seems, in your anger, you killed her." Obi-Wan Kenobi - "You were the Chosen One! You were supposed to destroy the Sith, not join them...Bring balance to the Force, not leave it in darkness!" A fitting conclusion, if only the others were close to this good. Better late than never, Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith delivers.
