A grave and vigorous popular entertainment, a picture that regains and sustains the filmic Force [Lucas] dreamed up a long time ago, in a movie industry that seems far, far away.

Lucas is a brilliant technician but a poor philosopher, and his lurchingly thought-out rendering of futuristic politics prevents the entire series from achieving the greatness to which it aspires.

.. even though Revenge is a better experience than Phantom Menace or Attack of the Clones, it doesn't add anything that satisfying or compelling to the big picture.

McGregor, Portman, and Christensen have all been brilliant elsewhere but the bonds between their characters are all in the dialogue, never between the lines. (And the less said about the lines themselves, the better.)

Not far into the first third of the movie, I didn't think I was going to make it all the way through the percussive nonstop action.

As blockbusters go, Revenge of the Sith has some good throwaway entertainment, but there have been better blockbusters with better throwaway entertainment.

Audience Reviews for Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith 3D

A surprisingly dark and emotional end to the prequel trilogy. To watch the characters and their situation degrade into despair is both horrifying and fascinating. The film does an excellent job in tying the entire saga together. It is a heart-breaking soap opera as much as it is a heart-pounding descent into chaos. In this sense it is a memorable, haunting, and brilliant film.

I feel that after being worn out from the previous two installments, "Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith" is kind of a breathe of fresh air to all the fans and new-comers alike. It may still have horrible dialogue, especially in the romance portion of the film, but the visuals and the story far surpass anything and everything the previous two had to offer. George Lucas doesn't shove schlocky things down your throat this time around, in fact, he rather pays homage to the original film in many more ways than one. Through replicating visuals and referencing old dialogue, this film is much more enjoyable than the rest of this trilogy. It's not a great movie, but the last 30 minutes is great! I'm in a weird position to say that I liked this film, because I really did, but there are still annoying things throughout the film. Overall, it's a nice wrap-up that I have no problem watching!

The first movie of the newer trilogy to live up to the magic and legacy of A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back and the best movie since the phenomenon started in 1977. The mythology and power of the story in this one is the greatest of them all. The emotional weight of the characters and the Shakespearean tragedies that unfold contribute to George Lucas' best storytelling to date. Add in some of the best special effects you'll ever see and some of the best action blockbusters can provide, and you get a masterclass in film-making vision and execution. The occasional clunky dialogue not withstanding (clearly the one deficiency most prevalent by Lucas), there's little diehards and casual fans won't love. The acting is the best of the series and all of the little nods and throwbacks to the original trilogy make for a seamless transition to Episode IV. You'll want to pop it in the player as soon as this is over. I slightly prefer Episode IV just because we get none of this without it and it just has that little something special that is hard for me to explain, but this is a very close second.
