In the scene where Qui Gon is cutting through the door aboard the trade federation ship, two destroyer droids roll along the corridor towards them. Both droids are seen to deploy blue energy shields as they unfold; however, when Obi-Wan makes his comment about them having said shields, the camera cuts back to a brief shot of the two droids, during which the droid nearest the camera is seen re-deploying its shield.

This chapter in the Star Wars Sage is vastly underrated, and is always given the short end of the stick by the so-called Star Wars purists.
These are the people that live for the original trilogy and will never ever realize the flaws those movies have, but will always look for anything to criticize about the new ones.
That is the wrong attitude to take towards this movie.
If you hate the movie because you hate Jar Jar and the Gungans, then you are required to hate The Return of the Jedi because of C-3PO and the Ewoks. Both are equally annoying, yet no one seems to have a problem with the ever obnoxious C-3PO simply because he is in the original. And come on... Ewoks? But I digress...
Also, you may hate Jake Lloyd, in which case you should hate Mark Hamill in A New Hope. Bot are equally high pitched and annoying. And both their acting can be criticized to the extreme. At least Jake Lloyd was in only one movie...
This movie boasts the best lightsaber duel in the entire Saga, and has the best villain after Darth Vader. The music is flat-out amazing, and the special effects are dazzling.
It brings new elements into the Star Wars universe while staying true to old elements. Yoda is still a puppet here, and that counts for a good amount of nostalgia.
Criticizing it because the special effects are too good for what is supposed to be a prequel? Come on people... that is lame.
Anyway, the reason this movie is so criticized is because people are comparing this one movie to the entire original trilogy instead of looking at it as a stand-alone movie. Which, let's face it, is what it was meant to be.
If you come into this movie expecting a fresh, new take on Star Wars which broadens the universe, then you won't be disappointed. If you came here expecting it to be a rehash, remake-style of the originals with no innovations, then why on earth are you still watching movies?
Take the movie for what it is, not what you want it to be. Watch it without bias (if that is possible) and you will see that it is brilliant.
Why in the world does Episode I have a lower score than Episode II?
