Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace Reviews
Now, I love this movie. It was my first Star Wars experience as a child and I've been hooked ever since. But now that I can objectively look back at this film as an adult, it's so clear to me why people disliked this movie so much. The worst part was the script. The script was garbage. Not even Liam Neeson, Ewen McGregor, and Samuel Jackson's exceptional acting capabilities could make up for it. There were only a few good scenes in this movie that could simply serve as an introduction to Attack of The Clones. Other than that, this movie barely contributes to the overarching plot of the Star Wars story. And don't even get me started on pod-racing, trade federations, and all of the other politics. Also, Jar Jar Binks was just terrible. Phantom Menace is definitely the worst film in the Star Wars saga, which is a shame considering the potential.
However, as I stated before, it was my first Star Wars experience that I still can obtain nostalgia from. So for that, I still can watch this movie without total dissatisfaction.
