Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith is a 2005 American space opera directed by George Lucas, and is the third and final chapter of the Star Wars prequel trilogy.
Three years into the Clone Wars, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker rescue Supreme Chancellor Palpatine from Separatist leader Count Dooku. As Obi-Wan pursues a new threat, Anakin acts as a spy for the Jedi Council and learns of a sinister plot by the Sith Lord Darth Sidious to destroy the Jedi Order and take over the galaxy.
Why it Rocks
- The opening scene just goes above and beyond, from the space battle over Coruscant to the droid attacks to the lightsaber duels.
- General Grievous and Darth Sidious are awesome villains.
- Most of the actors give fantastic performances.
- Awesome special effects.
- Amazing soundtrack composed by John Williams, especially "Battle of the Heroes".
- Links with the original trilogy really well.
- Kickass battle between Obi-Wan and Anakin on Mustafar.
- Hayden Christensen's performance as Anakin Skywalker is an improvement from Attack of the Clones, especially after he becomes Darth Vader.
- It features Darth Vader's famous line "Noooooooooooo!", which became a staple in pop culture.
- A bootlegged version of the film titled Star War: The Third Gathers: Backstroke of the West became an internet meme due to its hilariously mangled subtitles, the most famous line being "Do not want!", which itself is a mistranslation of Darth Vader's famous "Noooooooooooo!".
- Anakin's scenes before he turns to the Dark Side are rather mediocre, though they're not nearly as cringeworthy as most of his scenes in Attack of the Clones.
- The boring political scenes are still there, though they're not as focused on as they were in the last two prequels.
- The romantic talk between Anakin and Padme feels forced.
- Some of the deaths are pretty lame, especially that of General Grievous.
