Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005)


Ewan McGregor
Natalie Portman
Hayden Christensen

Directed by George Lucas

George Lucas took advantage of the mastery display of CGI sword play which was the only good thing about Attack of the Clones, as we get to see Master Yoda will the lightsaber again this time take on the Sith Lord and let’s not forget the wonderful introduction of Darth Vader, Revenge of the Sith is the best of the new Star Wars trilogy. The thing I did enjoy most in the movie is the pace it moved, it was all happening fast from the dissolving of the Republic, the corruption of Anakin and then Lucas made we the viewers eager to see the faceoff between the Mentor and apprentice, as we wait to see Obi-Wan Kenobi take on young, proud and powerful Anakin Skywalker.

Lucas did the writing by himself, unlike the previous Attack of the Clones where he hired some others to help make a better star wars movie than The Phantom Menace, which brought about more theory than action, this movie is more about the force, and the corruption of power. The movie’s lightsaber fight scenes were intense, Obi-Wan’s battle with General Grievous (Grievous is a fearsome looking cyborg who seemed to be having some health issues. He is the General of the Separatists' droid army) was just fun to watch as Obi-Wan had to take on the four armed lightsaber (with each arm armed with a lightsaber) fighting cyborg. There were also many impressive lightsaber fight scenes. The ending battle between Obi-Wan and Anakin was very impressive when you look at the speed they moved and the complexity of their strikes and paring. It was even more impressive when I found out that neither Ewan McGregor nor Hayden Christensen used a stunt double in any of the lightsaber battles.

The events that occurred in this movie happened three years after the Clone Wars, with the Jedi Knights on a massive mission which had them all spread across the galaxy with the clone army as the waged war against the Separatists. Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi was sent to deal with General Grievous, leader of the Separatist Army while Anakin Skywalker had some time alone to grow closer to Palpatine, the Chancellor of the Galactic Republic (The Sith Lord).

During their discussions Anakin is told about the dark side and its advantages by the Sith Lord, Palpatine. Anakin at first tried to disapprove but soon succumbs to the temptations of the dark side of the Force and becomes Darth Vader.

Here is a Star Wars prequel that can stand beside the original trilogy that Lucas did in the 70s and 80s.
