George Lucas draws the Star Wars film series to a close with this dark sci-fi adventure which sets the stage for the events of the first film and brings the saga full circle. After a fierce battle in which Obi-Wan Ewan McGregor and Anakin Hayden Christensen join Republic forces to help free Chancellor Palpatine Ian McDiarmid from the evil Count Dooku Christopher Lee and his minions, Anakin is drawn into Palpatine's confidence. Palpatine has designs on expanding his rule, and with this in mind he plants seeds of doubt in Anakin's mind about the strength and wisdom of the Jedis. Anakin is already in a quandary about how to reveal to others the news of his secret marriage to Padmé Amidala Natalie Portman now that she is pregnant, and visions which foretell her death in childbirth weigh heavy on his mind. As Anakin finds himself used by both the Jedis and the Republic for their own purposes -- particularly after Mace Windu Samuel L. Jackson expresses his distrust of the young Jedi -- he turns more and more to the Force for help, but begins to succumb to the temptations of its dark side. Many of the Star Wars series regulars returned for Star Wars: Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith, including Frank Oz as the voice of Yoda, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, Kenny Baker as R2-D2, and Peter Mayhew as Chewbacca.

The Best of The PrequelsStar Wars Episode III: Revenge of The Sith is the best of the Prequel trilogy. It has a better story, dialogue, and effects than the other two. The film still has plenty of flaws, and is nowhere near as good as the Original trilogy; but this is the one Prequel episode where I actually felt like I was watching a Star Wars movie. It has some amazing moments such as the Opening space battle to the movie, the Order 66 Scene, and the ending to the movie. However, it is still filled with flaws, such as the love banter between Anakin and Padmé is still horribly cringe-worthy, there is still an overabundance of CGI, and the ending lightsaber fight drags on a little too much; but i can still sit down and enjoy this movie.
