Why in the name of all that is holy do people rate this movie higher than 20%? I ask the same about CRYSTAL SKULL and EPISODES 2 and 3, but ESPECIALLY PHANTOM MENACE and CRYSTAL SKULL. Each of those movies took a cherished series of movies that ranged from extremely well-crafted to outright life-changingly awesome and shat all over their memories.
Two and a half. There are two and a half good things about this movie.
1: Ewan McGregor is spot-on casting for a young Ben Kenobi.
2: As always, the visuals and effects are amazing. Pointless, but amazing.
1/2: Darth Maul, has he lasted more then two minutes, had the potential to be awesome.
But where do I begin?
Insulting racial stereotypes substituting for unique alien languages? This movie has at least three.
Boring plotline that nobody cares about? ('Cause this movie is essentially about a Trade Federation. What were the first three STAR WARS films about? The growth of Luke Skywalker's character.)
This movie should last ten minutes, including the entire opening credits and it would be just fine.
