Plot: It is three years after the Clone Wars. The leader of the droid army, General Grievous, has captured Chancellor Palpatine on board his ship, the Invisible Hand. Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker must fly through Coruscant safely, and enter the Invisible Hand so that they can rescue the captive Chancellor. Just when Palpatine is about to be released, Count Dooku shows up. Obi-Wan and Anakin both battle it out with him, but Obi-Wan ends up unconscious. Anakin slices off his head and kills him. Anakin carries Obi-Wan, and Palpatine follows him. They meet General Grievous face to face, and Anakin tries to fly the last half of the ship so that they can safely land on Coruscant. Later, Palpatine starts acting strange, constantly manipulating Anakin into believing that the Jedi Council is against him. Eventually, it is found out that he is the Dark Lord of the Sith. Jedi Master Mace Windu fights him, along with three other Jedi that accompany Windu. They all fail. Anakin becomes Darth Vader, believing that he can save Padme from death by becoming evil. After a fierce battle between Obi-Wan and Anakin, Anakin gets fried by the lava at Mustafar. Palpatine takes him to a medical facility, where he gets fake legs and a fake arm attached to him, along with a breath mask, and a helmet. And thus, Darth Vader was born... the Death Star is shown under construction, a weapon of mass destruction that is sure to be used in the future. Runtime: 140 mins Release Date: 19 May 2005
A movie to bring balance to the two Trilogies... (by hyrumnephi)
I personally am more of a fan of the original trilogy than what I have been of the prequels. Although I did enjoy TPM, and AOTC, they definitely were not as well done as A New Hope or Empire. I think the general criticisms of the first two prequels was lack of good story, and poor acting. First I would like to say that the acting is much better in Revenge of the Sith than the first two prequels, but what truly stood out in this movie was the story. It was delivered perfectly, for the first time since Empire, Lucas connected emotionally with his audience. The last hour of the movie was <more>
especially powerful. Although probably not planned, I think this movie will be the bridge that brings the old star wars sheep back into the fold. Just as Anakin eventually brings balance to the force, Revenge of the Sith will bring balance back to the Star Wars Universe. And judging by the reaction of the test audience I was part of, everyone I was with feels the same way, no one left their seat for at least a couple minutes after the movie ended.
All I can say is that Lucas has finally redeemed himself! (by StarWarsFanForLife)
MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD!Yep, I got to catch an advanced screening of the long awaited final episode of the Star Wars saga, up here in Nothern California.All I can say is, WOW! This has the best action sequences of any of the six Star Wars films! The battle sequences at the beginning with Jedi star fighters and separatist forces is by far the most spectacular special effects sequence ever put to film.Anakin's downfall towards the dark side begins after an opponent of his is killed, which lures him more and more towards the dark side of the Force.Anakin and Obi-Wan spend the first half of the <more>
film trying to end the Clone Wars between the Republic and the Separtist forces.Acting wise, Heyden Christensen does a much better job this time around portraying the darker Anakin Skywalker as he heads towards his destiny, all of the wooden Anakin from The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones is finally free from his shackles this time around. Ewan McGregor, excellent as always does a great job portraying Obi-Wan Kenobi as a jedi master who knows his pupil is headed for the dark side.Natalie Portman does a great job portraying Padme Amidala as the tragic wife of Anakin who knows that the Republic and her husband are slowly drifting away from her. Padme's final scene is heartbreaking to say the least and adds some serious emotional impact towards the ending of the film. But, the real scene stealer is Ian McDiarmand who does an excellent job portraying the kindly Supreme Chancellor Palpatine as well as another major character in this film.The new villain, General Grievous, is cool, but I liked Jango Fett and Darth Maul a little more. Grievous isn't in the movie too much but when he and Obi-Wan are fighting on the planet Utapau, it's war on a large scale, with Obi-Wan riding this large lizard and Grivous riding this wheeled vehicle. While this is going on, Anakin grows even more closer towards the dark side, with fits of rage and jealousy towards his fellow jedi and towards the Republic.In this film you see how all of the jedi are exterminated, what finally happens to Padme, the mother of Luke and Leia, how Anakin becomes Darth Vader, and how the crumbling Republic becomes the first Galactic Empire. Warning though, Anakin's change to Darth Vader is quite scary and will definitely upset the little ones! Wow, Lucas has done it, and made a successful connection to the original Star Wars film, A New Hope! One of the coolest bits is seeing the Tantive IV, Bail Organa's rebel blockade runner, from A New Hope in action towards the end of Revenge of the Sith.We finally get to see Alderaan, and the wookie Chewbacca for the first time since the classic films, and the best bet, only a short glimpse of Jar Jar Binks towards the end of the film during a highly important funeral.The final confrontation between Obi-Wan and Anakin on the planet Mustafar, a lava planet, as well as the final duel between Yoda and Darth Sidious are far the best lightsaber battles of any of the films so far, and their tragic endings will only highlight the impact of the events that unfold in the film!While I'm sorry to see the cinematic portion of Star Wars come to an end, Lucas has ended the Star Wars saga on a grand fashion. All of John Williams music has pieces of the earlier prequels and some elements from the classic films to tie Revenge of the Sith with the other five films of the saga.Now, I'm more excited than ever for the upcoming television series, which takes place right after the events of Revenge of the Sith! Here's hoping that Revenge of the Sith, knocks off Titanic as the highest grossing film of all time!Buy your tickets now, because Sith doesn't just happen, it rules! By far the best of the three Star Wars prequels. Thank you George for thirty years of great entertainment! Get in line now!
First I want to thank George Lucas for creating such a fantastic world that has been in all of our lives for 28 years. Wow! Revenge of the Sith is a great movie and certainly the best of the prequels. It actually has some emotional depth...which the last two lacked for me. There is so much to love about this movie...the story, characters, special effects. Sure the dialogue is occasionally corny, but that's what make "Star Wars" movies so much fun. The acting is much better in this one and the action is fast-paced and well timed.This is definitely the movie to see this summer. <more>
What a great send off from George Lucas. Enjoy the last "Star Wars" movie. It's a wonderful summer movie and sure to please all of the Star Wars fans.
When I asked the reviewer sitting next to me to sum up Revenge of the Sith, he simply said "great!" That seemed to basically be the consensus of virtually everyone in attendance at an advance press screening of the final chapter in the Star Wars saga.There was an exuberant mood leaving the theater, as if everyone was in collective agreement that Lucas had finally done it. That he had gone out on top, with a stunning, rock-solid coup de grace. And from all the feedback I've heard from that screening, my sense of that collective mood was right.There are no real spoilers in ROTS. <more>
Everyone basically knows what happens in Episode 4: A New Hope. We all know Anakin becomes Vader. We know Obi Wan lives and we know Luke and Leia are born. What we don't know is how Lucas weaves those story lines into the large, six-part opus and better yet, why?No, it's not a perfect movie. There are those moments that make us cringe. Bad dialog and High School drama class acting make for a few awkward moments where you can hear audible moans and giggles in the audience, but we have come to expect this from modern Star Wars films. The upside is that these moments are rare in Episode III. OK, get ready. Take a deep breath. No Jar Jar! Yes, you read that right. You can let out that deep breath now.Fortunately, we have one savior to rely on for stellar acting. Mr. Ian McDiarmid as Supreme Chancellor Palpatine. McDiarmid brings the elegance of an Alec Guiness back to the franchise in a knockout performance that leaves the audience riveted and exhausted. He is the lifeblood of the film.As someone who saw the original 30 times in it's first month of release at the age of 13, I currently consider myself a Star Wars moderate. I don't have volumes of SW merchandise, nor can I debate whether or not carbonite contains enough oxygen to make it float. All I know is that magical feeling Star Wars gave me in the original 1977 release and that I'm happy to say, after a disappointing pair of prequels, has been finally restored and reinvigorated.Here's to Mr. Lucas for giving us all something spectacular to remember for our entire lives that embodies the whole point of going to the movies in the first place, to escape and lose ourselves in another world.
It's OK to be a STAR WARS fan again. (by actorman_us)
For several years now, it's been a rather uneasy proposition to be known as a STAR WARS fan. First, we had to put up with the great embarrassment of the clownish Jar Jar and the gut wrenching "acting" from the muppet known as Jake Lloyd in PHANTOM MENACE. Then came the laughably stilted dialog and the clumsily told love story from ATTACK OF THE CLONES. Fans far and wide were wondering what George Lucas had done to their beloved STAR WARS franchise! Something that once was so rollicking and without peer was being transformed into kiddie-pandering, muppet populated, CGI <more>
over-loaded dreck!Mr. Lucas, all is forgiven. Welcome back. REVENGE OF THE SITH is the prequel installment we've been hoping for all along. Gone is the overly wooden acting and the ridiculously petrified dialog. In there place is a logical and believable storyline. Anakin's transformation is inexorably sensible. It is natural and not forced into shape by wooden dialog. Scenes between Anakin and Padme, are heartfelt and honest- a far cry from their nearly unwatchable scenes in ATTACK OF THE CLONES. The same can be said of scenes between Anakin and Obi Wan Kenobi Ewan McGregor is legitimately great in this film. He gives Kenobi real depth and the viewer thoroughly believes that he grows up to become Alec Guiness . There exists a real bond of deep feeling the viewer can feel between master and apprentice thus making Anakin's fate all the more tragic, as he slowly becomes more and more entangled in Palpatine's Ian McDiarmid, in a joyfully malevolent turn web of deception and evil.Visuals have never been an issue in the prequel films and this is most certainly the case with REVENGE OF THE SITH. The opening sequence is a jaw-dropping collage of ships in movement, dazzling colors, and frenetic combat. Additionally, the technology used to create Yoda seems to have grown exponentially over the already impressive wizardry used to animate Yoda in CLONES. Front to back, the vistas Lucas shows us are entirely believable and staggering joys to behold. George Lucas goes right for the jugular in this film the PG-13 rating is well earned! Parents be advised!! . This is a very well-told story of a fall from grace told in an unflinching manner. And yet, the hope for the future is so firmly in place as this film rolls to an end, a tear will roll down your cheek if you've lived with this series of films as long as I have. STAR WARS is back. It's cool to be a fan again.
No Spoilers! Excitedly submitting my comments two weeks prior to the opening of the film after a preview screening at the Ziegfeld Theater , I am thrilled to add to what appears to be a growing wave of positive reaction to Lucas's effort in Episode III. As a life-long fan deeply caught in a love hate relationship with Episodes I and II, I cautiously awaited this final installment. I felt in my heart that this would be a great film, but feared that somehow I would again be disappointed. Maybe I was starting to succumb to the notion that I no longer had the spirit of that six year old <more>
boy who was mesmerized by the original Star Wars, long ago in 1977 at that far away NJ theater. Maybe.From the opening 20th Century Fox logo, the movie hits the ground running, proving once again the CGI capabilities of ILM and the thrills they inspire. However, unlike the first two films, where spectacular effects were layered upon complicated, contrived and sometimes dramatically vacant scenes executed with some of the worst performances in memory, there is solid story telling here. And that's the difference.The drama builds steadily in the first act before hitting light speed with a combination of excitement, dread, intrigue and pain. This strong dramatic spark ignites the entire cast, helping them turn in what are easily their best performances of the three films. When you have a script with this kind of thump and talented actors, the result is fun to watch. And for once, perhaps most importantly, the special effects serve the script, not the other way around.Anakin's internal struggle, present from frame one, quickly consumes him, catapulting the film towards its inevitable conclusion. While its no surprise that the film ends on a desperate note, there does remain a glimmer of possibility as the story segues into the aptly titled classic "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope". It's thought provoking and inspiring.It's also worth noting that as advertised the film is dark, makes no apologies, and is much less child friendly then the others. All pluses in my opinion.The final result with "Revenge" is a complete film that I will never forget, a somewhat renewed perspective on what Lucas was going for with Episodes I and II, and assurances that that little boy inside me is still there, popcorn in hand, ready for a good movie.
i loved star wars as a kid. i grew disenchanted with the new trilogy. i was prepared for another letdown.i was surprised to see that things really come together. 'sith' has a coherent story, well told, well paced. the movie is full of fireworks, but they always support the progression of the story, nothing felt unnecessary like some stuff in the earlier episodes. the characters were all solid. some were even great. there were quiet, slow paced moments that made sense, felt right. the transformation of the characters came across well. the conflicts are complex, personalities are <more>
multifaceted. this movie carries a lot more weight than episodes 1 and 2.not everyone will be happy. there are weak moments, there is wooden dialog, there's cheesy romance. nevertheless, for most of the audience, even non hard-core star wars believers, this movie works. it's great entertainment, and it ties in very well with episodes 4-6. the sense of disconnect that people felt with episodes 1 and 2 is gone. you will want to go home and watch 'a new hope' right after seeing 'revenge of the sith'.
George Lucas has finally decided to listen fan's complains and make a great work like this. I gave this movie a 10... maybe I'm still under impression but I can't find any minuses except poor acting in some parts of the movie and some cheesy dialog... But that are't real minuses because Star Wars movies are well known as movies with poor dialogs and acting... This movie won't get any Oscar any time soon but it's masterpiece if you like Star Wars... You have all those transformation from good to dark side, all those visual effects, space battles, ground battles, light <more>
saber duels... Palpatine is ingenious. He is the most brilliant carachter in whole movie... This movie is great! Thank you George
Revenge of the Sith -- A review from a guy who really saw it! (by privatjoey)
With the thunder of war drums blasting, George Lucas dangles you over a Republic Star Cruiser for about a minute only to reveal a space battle so electric it was hard to keep up with, much less blink my eyes. John Williams' amazing score makes it even better. Visually, it is probably the best sequence of the entire "Star Wars" saga, and a brilliant way to reintroduce the major characters around whom the prequel trilogy is based.After the opening sequence, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker go to rescue Chancellor Palpatine from General Grievous and Count Dooku. Here, some <more>
acting is required and I knew not to expect much because it didn't happen in any of the other movies.After this first part of the film, much to his credit, Lucas allows Ian McDiarmid's performance of Palpatine to be the foundation of the whole film. He is so evil in the role, that he will likely now be seen as the overall villain of "Star Wars." His manipulation of Anakin toward the dark side of the Force is done with the cunning of a politician and I suspect McDiarmid may have studied some of the great bastards of history.Yoda, who was mostly computer graphics over Frank Oz' voice, played the perfect enemy for Palpatine, who declares himself Emperor. It is he who seems to bring the whole film together and provide a connection with the original trilogy, and some kickass fight scenes of his own, especially one where he battles Palpatine in the Senate chamber.Seeming more confident than before in the character, Ewan McGregor, turns in a performance as Obi-Wan Kenobi that gets increasingly better as the movie darkens. You also see him in a lightsaber duel with General Grievous that is so f*ckin' sweet that you'll be left lamenting that he didn't get more screen time, much the way people complain Boba Fett was cheated in the original trilogy.Most importantly, you get to see him become fearful of what is transpiring behind the Jedi's unwitting backs and he all but says "we're a bunch of morons" for not realizing what Palpatine has been up to all these years.Natalie Portman's Padme performance is almost a non-entity in this movie and she is the only female character with a major speaking role. Although Portman has been an Oscar nominee, I have always felt she was poorly picked for this role because she doesn't exhibit the feistiness of her predecessor, Carrie Fisher.Speaking of poor choices, the normally wooden Hayden Christiansen's portrayal of Anakin Skywalker is only a little better than in "Attack of the Clones." He remains unable to emote at times when he should and is believable in the role only because the Palpatine character brings it out of him. Even in the Darth Vader suit near the end, he is a letdown of sorts because his lack of rhythm prevents the anger we think he should exhibit when he finds out the fate of his wife, Padme.This prevents James Earl Jones, who now takes over as Vader's voice, from projecting the feelings we all know he can. Christiansen's clumsy movement stops a powerful Jones roar because the voice wouldn't match the scene.With that said, Christiansen is actually the showstopper in the two most important scenes in the movie. First the the battle between Mace Windu and Palpatine, in which Samuel L. Jackson had said before that he wouldn't "go out like a punk." And he doesn't. Instead he goes out like some sort of cosmic Crispus Attucks, and not before making a permanent and familiar mark on "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi." Anakin then turns permanently to the dark side and you can feel him submitting to Palpatine's evil because his last action was a point of no return.Second, of course the long anticipated battle on the volcanic lava planet Mustafar with Obi-Wan Kenobi. Lucas was smart to put all of the intensity of the movie into this sequence. Here the martial arts and swordplay movements of the two dueling Jedi are so slick, that it makes me want Lucas to reshoot the Vader/Kenobi fight in the original "A New Hope" to add more action to it.Finally, the moment of truth, when we find out how Kenobi bests Anakin, who has now let the Vader identity consume him and is having delusions of grandeur about "my new empire." I won't give this one up, but be warned: Kenobi f*cks him up and good.The rest of the movie, though very sad, is filled the long awaited tie-ins with the original films; the birth of Luke and Leia, Obi-Wan and Yoda going into hiding; there is even a skeleton of the Death Star in its first stages of construction.But the film doesn't answer every question that I know nitpicky fans will ask like: how Leia could remember her mother; how Obi-Wan gets the name 'Ben'; what Palpatine's true origins are; how Anakin was conceived asexually although the Darth Plagueis anecdote Palpatine tells, gives a veiled clue .And most importantly, the question of Force ghosts. I was really disappointed by what seemed to be a blowoff of that issue, with Yoda simply saying he will show Obi-Wan how to communicate with his old master Qui-Gon Ginn. They also fail to explain why they are just now discovering Force ghosts after thousands of years of Jedi orthodoxy.Unfortunately, here there are no surprise cameos by Liam Neeson in the Qui-Gonn role early rumors had it that Neeson's voice would speak to the living Jedi to at least brighten their battered spirits.Still, "Revenge of the Sith" was still a more than satisfying filmgoing experience, running a close second as a film only to "The Empire Strikes Back" in the series.
