Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace Reviews
Now I have heard that some people are quite upset over how Jar Jar (the main protagonist) was portrayed. They say he is too childish and makes the movie more for kids, I say they created him like Oedipus, he had a flaw that he had to overcome. And he used that flaw. He overcame it during a battle, and proved his worth. His child like clumsiness is what drove the movie forward. He was a catalyst that the plot centralized around. He was obviously too good for the now six other movies. The writers of the next six movies were so astounded with how well the movie turned out that they decided that it was considered unfair to place him in the other ones in fear that they would rake in too much money.
I am saddened with the low 55% on this movie and everyone's low stars. I believe that anything less than 5 star is just trying to purposely make this movie look worse so the others get more attention. Like everyone always says, the first is always better than the sequels... The clear second best movie though, was quite obviously Episode 3.... they made up for it by allowing Anakin to have the deepest and darkest thoughts that turned him evil to make way for the following movies that came out at a later date.
In conclusion "The Phantom Menace" doesn't deserve to be called "Star Wars" and i it was'nt a film in the Star Wars Canon The Phantom Menace the film wouldn't be remembered as a film at all.
I would not recommend this or attack of the clones this movie had potential and then jar jar bunks showed up
