Movie Info

George Lucas draws the Star Wars film series to a close with this dark sci-fi adventure which sets the stage for the events of the first film and brings the saga full circle. After a fierce battle in which Obi-Wan (Ewan McGregor) and Anakin (Hayden Christensen) join Republic forces to help free Chancellor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) from the evil Count Dooku (Christopher Lee) and his minions, Anakin is drawn into Palpatine's confidence. Palpatine has designs on expanding his rule, and with this in mind he plants seeds of doubt in Anakin's mind about the strength and wisdom of the Jedis. Anakin is already in a quandary about how to reveal to others the news of his secret marriage to Padmé Amidala (Natalie Portman) now that she is pregnant, and visions which foretell her death in childbirth weigh heavy on his mind. As Anakin finds himself used by both the Jedis and the Republic for their own purposes -- particularly after Mace Windu (Samuel L. Jackson) expresses his distrust of the young Jedi -- he turns more and more to the Force for help, but begins to succumb to the temptations of its dark side. Many of the Star Wars series regulars returned for Star Wars: Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith, including Frank Oz as the voice of Yoda, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, Kenny Baker as R2-D2, and Peter Mayhew as Chewbacca. ~ Mark Deming, Rovimore

All Critics (280) | Top Critics (52)

Say what you want about Lucas' one-take directing style, his over-reliance on blue screens or his cheesy tendency to reference himself, but his imagination is as fertile as ever.

[A] dramatically cogent and highly satisfying finale to the Star Wars saga.

Alas, Lucas is as tin-eared and ham-fisted with spiritual seduction as he is with the romantic kind.

The best of Lucas's recent SW trilogy.

Triple J

Critics and fans are already praising the movie, claiming it's better than Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones. But that's not difficult, as both movies were bad, and the new one is just as bad in many ways.

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!
