A roller coaster of opinions take sway in the analysis of this film. With Lucas at the helm, many blame him for what is an all time low of acting and chemistry between Cristianson and Portman's major lead roles with the notable exception of McGregor's Obi Wan Kenobi. This was not aided by a frank lack of character development and exceedingly rushed plot lines with the sudden addition of Lee's (albeit very well portrayed) Count Dooku. Though, masterful CGI and never-before seen action sequences do raise merit for the films; with epic lightsaber action and interstellar dogfights. Whilst highly criticised, the politics continues to bring an interesting aspect to this highly loved universe; not to mention, the evident lack of Jar Jar Binks was a welcome change to its predecessor. Whether fans accept it or not, the film is not abysmal, and brings new life into the dedicated fandom that is 'Star Wars'.
