Crop And Save
The acting by Hayden Christensen was STIFF AGAIN. It isn't all his fault; the dialog was lousy. I really think that acting in front of a green screen doesn't help either, but he was awful.
As for the plot, I had thought Star Trek Nemesis was the worst story line, but this movie takes the cake. There are holes in the story you could drive a truck through! Padme didn't know she was caring twins! Even worse she was carrying twins and she didn't look pregnant. If she did look pregnant NOBODY NOTICED?! Come on! By the way how far along was she anyway? Then she dies because she doesn't have the will to live? WHAT?! I can understand that she is heart broken, but she has two babies to live for. Is she that selfish? I know that Lucas had to explain Obi Wan becoming one with the force which is why he slipped in the comment about Qui-Gon coming back from the dead, but Lucas just threw it away by not incorporating into the movie earlier. Liam Neeson could have at least made a cameo.
The biggest problem I have is that Vader is portrayed in episodes IV- VI as someone seduced by the power of the dark side who is now the second most evil individual in the galaxy. In this flick, he is portrayed as a dupe who chose the dark side to save his love, whom he killed. So he just decides to serve the guy who duped him and made him into a killer and a fool? If you read the original Star Wars book, written by Lucas, he portrays Vader as someone who was evil to begin with, who only wanted power. Now we have the paradigm shift thrust on us as viewers to believe Anakin did it for love. What a bunch of baloney.
These are only a few of the MANY issues with the story line.
The other issue with movie is like the last two movies; it was an orgy of visual effects. It was so much it looked phony. It didn't convey the enormity of the Grand Republic/Galactic Empire; it just made it look stupid.
The first three movies where good because they were good stories (except those damn Ewoks) with the right amount of visuals. The last three look like they were done by a bunch of monkeys on drugs.
