I'm a fan of the original trilogy but I thought Episode I & II were utter garbage just riding on the name. E3 definitely redeemed the series to a degree. It's the new episode most like the originals.

I totally agree. The first two were just unecessary. Do we really need to know that Anakin's mother was a virgin? Do we really care about Padme and Anakin's love affair?

A prologue a la The Hobbit would have been more than sufficient. Not 5 hours of boring and unecessary storyline. Although being a die hard Star Wars fan, all I need is some light sabre action to make me happy.

First of all, Padme and Annakin's love affair was supposed to be the driving force behind the entire first three movies. It was his love for her that turns him to the dark side, or so I thought.

Then I witnessed Lucas's script which could of been written by a five year old and Annakin's acting and I almost threw up.

There will never be someone who takes down a succesful series like Hayden Christiansen did to this. He was possibly the worst actor in the history of cinema, and the horrible simplistic script certainly didn't help.

At no time was I convinced the two cared about eachother, let alone believe there was a huge internal turmoil of Annakin, except when he let Samuel L die and then suddenly say "Gee Golly, that was bad. Ah well I'll go to the dark side now"

I know this comes off harsh, but I think the potential of this movie was nowhere near reached.

The effects were badass, the third was definitely the best of the three, but the script and Haydens acting made me gag one too many times. I just wish they cast someone else for that role. I would of been able to enjoy it much more.

Obviously, I'm a critic. :-/

This was the bit which really bugged me. I mean, one moment he's saying, "what have I done?" after cutting off Samuel L's arm, and then 10 seconds later he's pledging his total allegiance to the Dark Side?! :-?

Doesn't quite add up for me.
