Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Star Wars fans waited breathlessly for this concluding installment of the three-part prequel to the Luke-and-Leia story arc, knowing full well that it would end in sadness and defeat for the forces of good. And on that score, writer-director George Lucas does not disappoint: Revenge of the Sith is the film that shows Jedi knight Anakin Skywalker Hayden Christensen turning to the Dark Side and becoming Darth Vader, one of the most chilling villains ever created for the screen. The Sith's revenge also includes the defeat and destruction of the Jedi order by the evil forces of Chancellor Palpatine Ian McDiarmid, which Lucas accomplishes with visceral flourish that earns the previously PG-rated series its first PG-13 designation. Further setting the stage for A New Hope a.k.a. Star Wars Episode IV, we see the birth of twin infants Luke and Leia to Skywalker’s beloved wife, Padme Natalie Portman, and the flight of Jedi masters Obi-Wan Kenobi Ewan McGregor and Yoda voiced by Frank Oz into exile and uncertainty. No doubt about it, Revenge of the Sith is the darkest Star Wars entry of them all, a movie that definitely puts the "opera" in "space opera." Lucas, with the usual help of the series’ score composer, John Williams, presents everything on a grand emotional scale worthy of La Scala. Despite the all-pervasive air of tragedy and the snippets of dialogue that teeter on the brink between giggle- and cringe-inducing, Revenge of the Sith is nothing short of invigorating, employing every special-effects weapon in the Industrial Light and Magic arsenal. Revenge of the Sith is truly a breathtaking motion picture, certainly the best of the prequels; against considerable odds, it concludes the saga on a creative high.
All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
Star Wars fans have been put through the ringer when it comes to the prequel trilogy, with warring factions battling over the first two installments like rabid womp rats -- thankfully, the concluding film and the bridge to the beloved films of yore should hopefully please both camps and live up to the hype surrounding it. First things first, Episode III: Revenge of the Sith is one dark, heartbreaking film. There's a reason that it's PG-13, and parents of youngsters should definitely take note. That said, those who are looking for a fitting tale of Anakin Skywalker's slide to evil will be pleased to know that George Lucas did, indeed, pull it off. Easily the most intense of the series, the third installment fulfills its hellish promises and sets the stage for the next hopeful chapter in the story. Besides the first rousing 20 minutes, one thing that this film isn't is the type of popcorn crowd-pleaser that audiences have come to expect, especially after the kiddie-friendly Phantom Menace and the action-packed lovey-dovey schmaltz that was Attack of the Clones. Thanks to a bravura performance from Ian McDiarmid, running wild here as the supremely sinister emperor of the galaxy, this episode finally has what the other prequels didn't -- a thoroughly nasty and evil villain. For all of the range that Hayden Christensen delivers in this one (and he's definitely filled into the role), the wicked Sith Lord commands the screen in a performance that virtually steals the show as he orchestrates the final coup in the prequel's complicated political plot that is at the heart of Lucas' cautionary (and eerily timely) mythos. Now, don't worry, there are still epic battles with easily the biggest and arguably the best batch of lightsaber duels here, though the most engaging moments have to be what's underneath the digital flash. As it should, the action amply serves the story, and once the proverbial Sith hits the fan, the film's downward spiral pulls you in and doesn't let go. Drawing the series together in spectacular fashion is John Williams' score, thus completing a sprawling saga of work that deftly weaves old and new themes together to create a unified piece that is unprecedented in film score narrative history. Additionally, the FX department should be given highest honors simply for the extraordinary, subtle work that went into Yoda's harrowing performance, helped out once again by Frank Oz's voice acting. Now, in all fairness, the flick still suffers from moments of overtly cutesy stuff, while the actors continue to suffer a bit from the same stilted dialogue that has plagued the last two entries. The good news is that those scenes are so few and far between that only the most cynical viewers would continually hold it against the final product. With Revenge of the Sith working as both a stylistic and emotional bridge to the original trilogy, Lucas completes his masterpiece the only way he knew how, by supplying a soul to one of the screen's most memorable villains. Everyone might not agree with how he went about doing it, but it'd be hard to say that this chapter didn't deliver the goods that audiences have been waiting for since 1977.

    A Classic

    George Lucas has done more then enrich the minds of young kids who dream of space battles, aliens, other worlds, laser guns, flying cars, spaceships, and Jedi Knights. He has also embedded ancient mythology and symbolism in a modern format that is easier to identify with and alot more fun. Further more he has shown how gentle a thing Democracy is and how greed and the pursuit of power can easily destroy everything the people hope to build. More so its easy to draw parallels between the Clone Wars and the American Civil War. But to focus on the important part is to focus on the characters... never has a science fiction film put so much depth in characters as george lucas does. This Episode 3 is mindless in its constant pace towards its heart wrenching conclusion which sees the rise to power of Emperor Palpatine, the death of Anakin Skywalker who would be reborn in the end as Darth Vader, the death of Padme and from her sacrifice the birth of Anakin and Leia. The romance in the movie is tragic to watch and the genocide of the Jedi Order is even worse. A contemporary classic and masterpiece.

    A Destiny is Fulfilled, A Galaxy Plunged in Darkness

    Star Wars is the most momentous creation ever developed chronicling the histories and perils of humankind, when it is forced to look within itself and determine the divergance between good and evil. The culmination of this struggle reigns within the Jedi Order, and the culmination of this saga within Revenge of the Sith. Here, within a single episode, in merely two hours, hopes are shattered, dreams desolated, heroes perish, and a journey begins that will extend as long as the Force shall bind and penetrate the galaxy. Revenge of the Sith is a magnificant film, with breathtaking action, superb acting, and a heart-shattering ending that will bring tears to your eyes. Although some persist that Hayden Christensen's acting is monotone and dry, they fail to grasp the deliberate calousness and pain he places in every word, and the fact that he can radiate such emotion and emptyness at times. The PG-13 rating should not be too much of a concern, although the tension and emotion which are a substantial portion of the story do become unbearable for younger viewers. I must say that the only other film that pervades such emotion is Planet of the Apes. Undoubtedly, the Force is still with us.

    Anakin Skywalker's tragic story!

    From beggining to end this, this is a totally awsome movie.About Anakin's turn to the dark side.But the Mustafar batttle between Anakin Skywalker and his former master, Obi Wan Kenobi has got be the most remebered battle in the Star Wars saga. Hayden Christensen has defenently outdone himself in this one.That declares Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith the best movie ever for the Star Wars saga.

    The Best- The Only

    I really loved this movie. This is very close to being my favorite- my first is Attack of the Clones- because of the whole Dark-Side feeling to it. The Anakin VS Obi-Wan scene is absolutely extraordinary, and to truly enjoy it you need to take in the music playing during that scene and the awesome choreography of the lightsaber moves, which completely captivates me. I really cannot stand people who think that the prequels are terrible- the graphics are great, the characters are as they should be, and the dialogue is exactly what I had expected. Watch this movie, but don't watch the movies out of order. It is a great flick and the greatest conclusion to the saga and a great movie for conversation. The music- Battle of the Heroes- completely rocks as well.

    Best movie of the whole saga!!

    I think this movie was the best out of all six. The storyline and plot were very well done. Ewan Mcgregor and Hayden Christensen did an outstanding job together. This was also a great setup for the next three movies which we all love. George Lucas finally got it right on this movie.

    The Best of all Star Wars movies

    Ok I know all you sentimentalists will think that is sacriledge, but face it, it is the truth. Revenge of the Sith is the most action packed of all six Star Wars movies, It has the best one on one light sabre fight and the acting is better than the original. If you don't believe me, then watch this movie and then watch episode four.

    Best Prequel

    This completely outdoes the other 2 prequels. Its great to see Chewbacca, Vader, and all those other old guys again. Though the acting gets a little rough at times, it is a major improvement to the last two.

    George Lucas intended the prequel trilogy to be about Anakin, A

    George Lucas intended the prequel trilogy to be about Anakin, Amidala and Obi-wan. In many ways it turned out to be Palpatine's trilogy, a Sith trilogy.

    At the beginning Sidious had staged his own capture. Let the Separatists believe they had captured Chancellor Palpatine. Only Dooku knew that Sidious and Palpatine were the same man. Not even Grievous knew the truth.

    Anakin and Obi-wan were sent to rescue the Chancellor. As far as Dooku knew the plan was for him to kill Obi-wan and then stage his own capture by Anakin. He believed that the plan was for him push Anakin to the edge of the dark side and for his grief over Obi-wan to push him over the edge.

    Sidious watched as the 3 of them dueled. Obi-wan thrown across the room and knocked cold. Then Dooku did indeed push Anakin. The result was Dooku loosing both his hands, and being at Anakins mercy.

    Laughing with delight Palpatine commanded Anakin to kill Dooku. Sidious watch as Dooku realized, in the few seconds that Anakin hesitated, that he'd never really been the Sith Apprentice - realized he'd just been temporarily holding that place. Then Sidious's chosen apprentice decapitated him.

    Anakin then freed the Chancellor, then went to revive Obi-wan. Palpatine commanded Anakin to leave him behind while the 2 of them escaped, he refused. Killing Dooku had made Anakin vulnerable to the Dark Side, but not enough - not yet.

    Sidious's next step was to send Obi-wan to battle Grievous. He knew that Anakin had recently had a vision of Amidala's death and that only Obi-wan's influence could keep Anakin's attachment to her under control. With Obi-wan absent Palpatine revealed who and what he really was to Anakin.

    Anakin didn't immediately accept the offer of becoming the Sith Apprentice, even with Sidious's promise that he had the power to protect Amidala. Anakin revealed Palpatine's true identity to the Jedi. Who immediately went to arrest Palpatine. Which was exactly what he wanted.

    Sidious dueled several Jedi and killed most. However Master Windu reflected Sidious's own Sith lightning back at him. How and why Sidious's face changed during that battle is unclear, perhaps even he didn't fully understand it. Whatever the reason his face became corrupted, a manifestation of his inner darkness.

    The duel got Sidious what he wanted. By trying to arrest the legal Chancellor the Jedi technically became traitors. Also Anakin had finally given in to Darkness that had been swelling in him since he murdered Dooku, together he and Sidious killed Windu. Immediately afterward Sidious renamed his knew apprentice Darth Vader.

    Order 66 was just one of many contingency plans the clone trooper had been trained with. It was hidden among so many others, unnoticed. With the Jedi legally traitors Palpatine was free to issue order 66. That had been the entire reason for the clone wars. Because the clone troops would take the Jedi completely by surprise. All over the galaxy thousands of Jedi perished, almost at once.

    An assault on the Jedi temple was lead by Vader, on Sidious's order. Afterwards Sidious sent Vader to kill the Separatist leaders - to officially end the clone wars.

    Palpatine already controlled the senate. In essence he'd been an emperor for some time. With the Jedi dead he simply declared that officially true. Democracy died with Thunderous applause, and an empire was born.

    Afterward Yoda came to kill Sidious. The Jedi Grand Master and the Sith Master dueled in the Senate -in the very heart of what Palpatine had spend his life trying to destroy. They were deciding the fate of the galaxy right there. They'd become the embodiment of the Force, they were Light vs. Darkness, winner take all. Sidious proved stronger.

    Once Yoda was defeated, once Sidious was no longer in immediate danger, he quickly sensed that Lord Vader once in danger - mortal danger, and went to save him.

    For all his power and knowledge not even Sidious had been prepared for Vader's defeat on Mustafar. Was dismayed to find Vader dismembered and horribly burned.

    Some Force users believe the loss of so much of his body would weaken his Force connection, other believe it would only limit the ways he could express that power. Either way artificial hands and legs would prevent him from casting lightning, and leaping about as the Jedi often did. Vader would be physically maimed and his power restricted.

    Even with all that Sidious knew Vader would still be stronger than any other. Surgeon droids replaced limbs with prosthetics and sealed Vader in a life support suit. Vader would be imprisoned in the suit for the rest of his years.

    Then Sidious informed Vader of his wife's death. Leaving Vader with nothing but the Dark Side and his Master. Sidious believed beyond any doubt that Anakin was dead and only Vader remained.

    At the end Sidious and Vader were looking at the skeletal structure of a, still unnamed, moon sized space station. A space station who's power core, internal structure, and primary weapon were still completely theoretical. It would take nearly 2 decades to turn theory into application.

    Sidious's plans were complete. The Jedi order was destroyed and republic was no more. His apprentice was his at last - even if Vader wasn't precisely what he'd bargained for originally. The galaxy was his to rule as he saw fit.

    But there were a few things Sidious was unaware of. Things Yoda and Obi-wan had concealed from him. That Amidala had lived long enough to give birth. That on Tatooine and Alderon the Skywalker Twins lived. That once grown and reunited those Twins would play key roles in the destruction of that space station. That the twins were fated bring about the redemption of their father and the end of Sidious & the Sith line he ruled

    Good but scary for young, contains spoilers

    This is a good movie overall. We suggest NOT showing to children under 10. This movie features sci-fi violence,combat(like all the others but at a more extreme point),serious wounds to good characters, and some secrets are revealed about the second trilogy. Recommended for 11+ children. Is a good end to the 1st trilogy with action and adventure.

    Best of the new

    I found it to be more like the original movies than 1 and 2.Great to see Yoda and the Emperor have it out and Obi and Darth.Realy helped me understand why Vader was so scary when I was a kid, even though we never new what Ben was saying when he said that vader hunted down and killed the Jedi. Could have skipped 1&2 and just made 3 a little bit longer and It would stand on its own.

    Let's face it: George Lucas has lost it

    *Sigh* The original trilogy was perfect. Absoloutley flawless. Then George Lucas decided to make I, II, and III. *Sigh*"again" This time, Lucas includes all the dazzaling special effects you could ask for, but decides to cut back on the emotion and character development. What this movie should be about is Anakin Skywalker's dramatic transformation into Darth Vader. Instead it's all about Anakin trying to save his spoiled wife, which is somehow supposted to lead to his demise. Hayden Christensen gives his most boring, monotonous role to date. The dialogue is even worse than Christensen's performance. George Lucas use to be great at directing, with American Graffiti, and Star Wars, however he has greatly faltered in the last ten years. Frank Oz, providing the voice of Yoda, gives the best performance of the entire cast. The action is intense and enjoyable, but the rest could put you to sleep. It's just not the same without Han Solo. *Sigh* "again, again"

    Now that some time has passed...

    I would put this fourth best ... the original trilogy is timeless ... this is merely excellent! Can't wait for the conclusion of Indiana Jones, in Part Four. George Lucas is Mainstream Movies' only storyteller. A man.
