Storyline

Three years after the onset of the Clone Wars; the noble Jedi Knights are spread out across the galaxy leading a massive clone army in the war against the Separatists. After Chancellor Palpatine is kidnapped, Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and his former Padawan, Anakin Skywalker, are dispatched to eliminate the evil General Grievous. Meanwhile, Anakin's friendship with the Chancellor arouses suspicion in the Jedi Order, and dangerous to the Jedi Knight himself. When the sinister Sith Lord, Darth Sidious, unveils a plot to take over the galaxy, the fate of Anakin, the Jedi order, and the entire galaxy is at stake. Upon his return, Anakin Skywalker's wife Padme Amidala is pregnant, but he is having visions of her dying in childbirth. Anakin Skywalker ultimately turns his back on the Jedi, thus completing his journey to the dark side and his transformation into Darth Vader. Obi-Wan Kenobi must face his former apprentice in a ferocious lightsaber duel on the fiery world of Mustafar. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Goofs

In the duel between Mace Windu and Palpatine the camera shots are obviously alternating between those of Ian McDiarmid, playing Palpatine and those of the stuntman, who does not look much like the actor he is standing in for. See more »

Epic Star Wars Movie
8 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First I want to thank George Lucas for creating such a fantastic world that has been in all of our lives for 28 years. Wow! Revenge of the Sith is a great movie and certainly the best of the prequels. It actually has some emotional depth...which the last two lacked for me. There is so much to love about this movie...the story, characters, special effects. Sure the dialogue is occasionally corny, but that's what make "Star Wars" movies so much fun. The acting is much better in this one and the action is fast-paced and well timed.

This is definitely the movie to see this summer. What a great send off from George Lucas. Enjoy the last "Star Wars" movie. It's a wonderful summer movie and sure to please all of the Star Wars fans.
