Star Wars Revenge of the Sith Review

Updated on February 9, 2012


Revenge of the Sith is Episode 3 of the Star Wars saga, and the last Star Wars films to be made. It’s safe to say that the series certainly went out with a bang with this film!

From the get go, the action is hard and fast, with Obi-Wan and Anakin ‘saving’ the Chancellor from Count Dooku, before Obi-Wan and Anakin go their separate ways, a plan that was facilitated by the Chancellor without the Jedi Council even realising it.

The ensuing chaos leads to one climatic event; the near complete fall of the Jedi. Never has a film been so highly anticipated, and so well thought out and written. The scenes between Palpatine and Anakin are both chilling and also compelling and serve well to forward the plot.

Rarely does a film manage to cram in so much action that’s relevant, but ROTS excels here. From the emotional fight scene between the Jedi and Palpatine, to the Clone Army revealing their true form and then onto the double, yes double, final battle, it’s a non-stop rollercoaster.

The special effects in this film raise the bar, by which only Avatar has come close to beating. The Mustafar system is beautifully rendered, as the Senate Chamber. When this is coupled with another outstanding score by John Williams, you’re left with a movie experience you won’t forget for a long time to come.

The acting of both Hayden Christensen and Natalie Portman is highly applauded (save for one cringe worthy scene). Just as Hayden portrays a character who is becoming the epitome of evil, Natalie successfully portrays a woman in love, whose becoming heart broken by the situation.

The film Is extremely emotional at times when the Jedi are cut down to almost nothing, and this is further emphasised when Palpatine takes full control of the Republic, removing what was left of its democratic order and in turn converting it into the first Galactic Empire.

Come the end, fans are treated to seeing just how Anakin came about being contained within the infamous Darth Vader suit, again, a scene which is not for the faint hearted, along with the subsequent trauma Vader is subjected to.

As I said at the start of the review, the saga went out with a bang, and what an almighty one it was!

Score: 8.5/10

      Wait, didn't I comment on a Star Wars remake thingy Hub already? Ugh, there's so many product placements Lucas wants to throw in, that I can barely keep up with his releases! I wouldn't be surprised if he made a Star Wars aerosol!

      Anyways, great review and detailed synopsis of the film. I'll see it, though I'll probably forget what happened and see the NEXT re-release of it ^^
