The technical wizardry, the special effects, the ear-buzzing sound, the mind-numbing action and those magnificent light-sabres are all there.
December 15, 2015
The special effects, of course, are incomparably good and the digital photography achieves a dazzling clarity.
November 16, 2015
It soon becomes obvious that there is no avoiding the burden of predictability: there is nothing, essentially, in the film's story that we don't know already.
November 16, 2015
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.
November 16, 2015
The pity is that Lucas and his team couldn't have just manufactured the toys and the "Making Of" coffee table books and given the films a miss.
November 16, 2015
I think it is visually exciting. I think there are wonderful things in it but I just missed that innocence of the early films.
November 13, 2015
[A] dramatically cogent and highly satisfying finale to the Star Wars saga.
November 13, 2015
Episode III mainly is what it is -- the climax of a sometimes grand adventure that's more than the sum of its parts, yet much less than it might have been.
August 13, 2008
A grave and vigorous popular entertainment, a picture that regains and sustains the filmic Force [Lucas] dreamed up a long time ago, in a movie industry that seems far, far away.
September 28, 2006
The best-looking Star Wars episode of all, if not the most exciting, most imaginative or most affecting.
May 12, 2006
Lucas is a brilliant technician but a poor philosopher, and his lurchingly thought-out rendering of futuristic politics prevents the entire series from achieving the greatness to which it aspires.
December 31, 2005
.. even though Revenge is a better experience than Phantom Menace or Attack of the Clones, it doesn't add anything that satisfying or compelling to the big picture.
December 15, 2005
The final third of this dark, brooding epic is utterly mesmerizing, building magnificently to a coda setting up all the events in the original trilogy with an as-to-now (at least in the prequels) unforeseen brilliance
September 26, 2005
McGregor, Portman, and Christensen have all been brilliant elsewhere but the bonds between their characters are all in the dialogue, never between the lines. (And the less said about the lines themselves, the better.)
July 7, 2005
Although the stiff theatrics are part of the design, they're no longer excusable.
June 4, 2005
Veering from moments of breathtakingly visualized valor to outright stupidity, Sith is a vast improvement over the previous two outings, but still and all, it's no Star Wars.
May 26, 2005
Not far into the first third of the movie, I didn't think I was going to make it all the way through the percussive nonstop action.
May 26, 2005
It's a stronger movie than the two previous installments but, as Yoda would say: an out-and-out triumph it is not.
May 22, 2005
Nominally better than its immediate predecessors thanks to a pervasive atmosphere of catastrophic doom.
May 22, 2005
Lucas has woven into the action and effects a relatively thoughtful story about a young man meant for greatness but corrupted by his own fear and confusion, a story more Shakespearean than Arthurian.
