Revenge of the Sith

Yesterday I went with the boys to see Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005) at Festival Hall. It’s a good thing we went to the 4:20 PM show because the crowds were brutal for the next show.

Any doubts that you may have about George Lucas’ ability to make a decent film can now be put to rest. Revenge of the Sith is a good film. I walked out of the theatre feeling completed satisfied. I was so pumped that I wanted to go home and watch the original Star Wars.

The entire film is rich with detail, incredible special effects and plenty of dazzling action. Gone are the goofy characters like Jar-Jar and the lame attempts to sell toys with cute little Ewoks. This a much more serious movie as far as Star Wars films go.

The transformation of Anakin Skywalker into Darth Vader is awesome. It was also interesting to see how the hair styles became more 70s like near the end of the film. The uniforms worn by the Empire were beginning to look a lot like 1976 all over again at the end of the film. I thought Lucas did a nice job of wrapping up the Star Wars franchise and blending it with the first one.

I will definitely be going back in line to see this one again.
