Chicago Tribune
All the "Star Wars" movies will continue to entertain us for many years to come. They were grand fun, and this last one's a corker.

The Hollywood Reporter
The final episode of George Lucas' cinematic epic "Star Wars" ends the six-movie series on such a high note that one feels like yelling out, "Rewind!" Yes, rewind through more than 13 hours of bravery, treachery, new worlds, odd creatures and human frailty.

Variety
Emerges as the best in the overall series since "The Empire Strikes Back."

ReelViews
Only now can we truly step back and admire the full tapestry that it has taken George Lucas and his ILM wizards nearly three decades to weave.

Premiere
Once Palpatine's machinations set the cogs in motion for the creation of Vader, and the Clone Wars start getting bloody, Sith commences to cook in a way that no Star Wars movie has since "Empire."

Star Wars really does begin here.

Newsweek
Lucas manages to turn the audience's familiarity to his advantage: like a jigsaw puzzle whose final form has always been known, the fun is in discovering how the last pieces fit.
70
The most energetic of the prequels, the only one at all worth watching. But that doesn't mean it is without the weaknesses that scuttled its pair of predecessors. Quite the contrary.
50
Rolling Stone
Until the last half-hour, when Lucas actually does establish a emotional connection between the landmark he created in 1977 and the prequel investment portfolio he laid out in 1999, the movie is one spectacularly designed letdown after another.
50
Village Voice
Even setting aside the clumsy inconsistency of its interior logic, Sith is an underachievement of escapist entertainment.
