Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith - REVIEW

Film of the Day #70/ 300

The prequel trilogy finally becomes what we wanted it to be. Revenge of the Sith is a unique film in the way its primary objective is to certify what we already know, and the pleasure it generates is not in the surprise of what happens, but in how it happens. A fitting conclusion to a landmark franchise, Revenge of the Sith is the darkest, most tragic film in the series. It is also the finest since The Empire Strikes Back. Revenge is also the best-looking Star Wars episode of all, if not the most exciting, imaginative and affecting. Episode III hooks up to its sequel of 1977 as neatly as a space station landing dock and in years to come George Lucas’ farewell to the Star Wars series may be considered his finest entry. In 2005, Star Wars fans everywhere rejoiced George Lucas’ return from the Dark Side with a celebration of galactic proportions and left cinemas with a thirty-year sense of closure and satisfaction. The Force will be with us always -- and, after seeing Revenge of the Sith, you'll once again remember why. Happy May the forth!
