The empire rises...

After three long years of relentless fighting, the Clone Wars are nearly at an end. The Jedi Council dispatches Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) to bring General Grievous, the deadly leader of the Separatist droid army, to justice. Meanwhile, back on Coruscant, Chancellor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) has grown in power. His sweeping political changes transform the war-weary Republic into the mighty Galactic Empire. To his closest ally, Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen), he reveals the true nature of power and the promised secrets of the Force in an attempt to lure him to the dark side. When fate and power play their final hand, old friends will become bitter enemies and Anakin will finally fulfil his darkest destiny.

Theatrical report

Some questions: Why are most Jedi male? Why do they have "swords" that grow in length and potency? Why do battles between the Jedi and the Sith take place next to deep, dark, mysterious holes? Why does the loser fall into the deep, dark, mysterious hole? Just how Freudian are these movies anyway?

Now that I've got that out of my system I have to say that Star wars episode III: Revenge of the Sith is the logical conclusion to the first five episodes. All the major questions answered (balance was restored to the force by reducing the Jedi to two members, matching the Sith). Lots of action, lots of fighting, lots of spaceships, lots of space battles, lots of drama, lots of emotion, lots of betrayal. I like it. I like Hayden Christensen, too.

Well done George Lucas.

Now, if only I can get myself onto the TV series...
