Directed by: George Lucas
Starring: Ewan McGregor, Natalie Portman, Hayden Christensen, Christopher Lee, Samuel L. Jackson
Synopsis: We follow Anakin through his late youth as he continues to train as a Jedi Knight. His dedication is to the Jedi and peace in the universe, but his eye and his heart however, belong to a woman.
It's really, REALLY big, the flight sequences are amazing, the backdrops spectacular, the aliens were tremendous, the puns are very bad, there's a Jedi temper tantrum ("It's not fair!"), and the best lines belong to C3PO. Even with all that, it's a good thing Star Wars began at Episode IV and not here or else there would never have been a trilogy. It was DULL. I'm glad I waited for it to come to DVD and I feel really bad for those people who lined up to see it.Added 12 January 2003 at 8:15 PM
I saw the original Star Wars in the theatre the year it was released and then never bothered to watch any others. It wasn't that I didn't like the first one; I just didn't think it was that big of a deal.
McGregor was ok but Christensen was terrible. Unless of course he was trying to be a piece of wood, in that case he was great. I liked
the Muppet Yoda, C3PO's lines were painful and didn't make me laugh, and I understand now why so many people hate Jar Jar. Even though the effects and things were cool, this was not a particularly good movie.
