Justin's Review of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith
Well, I just got back from the midnight premier in my area, and all that I can say is [i]OH MY GOD!![/i] That was awesome! From beginning to end I was rocked and rolled and tossed and battered and in the end I was left sweating and shaken. Just... amazing. It was so dark and so brutal, much more than I thought it would be. The ties to the original trilogy were all there, and they all made sense. I loved all that was said and shown, and I enjoyed all the things hinted at but not said outright. Every aspect of the sound and visual effects were just tops, with my only niggle being Grevious' voice. I wish it had been stronger. But that is minor in the face of everything else. All of the performances were much stronger, and a good sight more natural, and that is a blessing. The saber duels were also amazingly done, and really leave every other one the series has had in the dust. All of them are in top form here, and it showed. I... hell, I barely know what more to say. Easily the best of the prequels, and I think it might even be my favorite of the entire franchise. It is unrelenting, it is uncompromising, and it delivers the goods like nothing I've seen in a very long time.
I rate it a solid and unflinching [b]10/10[/b]. I am a Star Wars fan, and this was everything I could have hoped for and more. Lucas, thank you.
