Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

So today I had some time to kill, and being a big fan of the Star Wars epics I chose to see the latest offering from Lucas – Revenge of the Sith. I wasn’t totally disappointed. Well, comparing it with the prequels, it fared much better than Episode II (which I thought was the worst SW movie ever!) and was at par with Episode I. But definitely no where near the magic of the original three movies.

Special effects as expected were quite awesome. It all seemed so magically realistic, the level of detail is quite amazing. At some point you really can’t identify what is real and what is graphics. The trademark light saber sequences are better than ever. I particularly liked the fight sequence between Obi-Van Kenobi and General Grievous.

Coming to the story, well not that great. Annakin changed into Darth Vader just a bit too quickly for my liking. Hmmm… the much hyped most “dramatic” character transformation in movie history could have been a little more convincing, in my humble opinion. The movie wasn’t paced properly at all. There are times when you felt it was really dragging on and on and at other occassions everything happens at light speed.

But if you are Star Wars fan, or maybe even if you are not, I think it is a must see. At the very least you get to know how all the pieces fall together and set the stage for one of best trilogies ever. I would give this a 7 on 10.
