A long time ago in a galaxy far, far, away...

War! The Republic is crumbling under attacks by the ruthless Sith Lord, Count Dooku. There are heroes on both sides. Evil is everywhere.

In a stunning move, the fiendish droid leader, General Grievous, has swept into the Republic capital and kidnapped Chancellor Palpatine, leader of the Galactic Senate.

As the Separatist Droid Army attempts to flee the besieged capital with their valuable hostage, two Jedi Knights lead a desperate mission to rescue the captive Chancellor....


As the Clone Wars rages on, the rift between Chancellor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) and the Jedi Council widens. Young Jedi Knight, Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen), is caught in the middle, his allegiances torn. Seduced by promises of power and the temptations of the dark side, he pledges himself to the evil Darth Sidious and the Sith Order, becoming Darth Vader. Together, the Sith Lords set in motion a plot of revenge against the Jedi, in an attempt to destroy them all. Jedi Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor), refusing to believe that Anakin is lost to the Sith, tries to turn his old Padawan learner back to the light side, leading to a climactic lightsaber battle that will shape the fate of the galaxy forever.

Revenge of the Sith is by far the darkest of George Lucas's prequel trilogy, detailing the end of the legendary Clone Wars and the rise to power of the Sith. Witness General Grievous wielding four lightsabers; Anakin's rematch with Count Dooku; the terrifying purge of the Jedi; and the most-talked about lightsaber battle in Star Wars lore, as Obi-Wan and Anakin duel in the lava-strewn world of Mustafar; not to mention, the birth of the twins and Anakin's - post-lava - biomechanical transformation into Darth Vader. May the force be with you!

Lucas raps up his trilogy with a special effects bonanza but ultimately fails in his quest to satisfy everybody all of the time. The single biggest factor in the ultimate failure of the trilogy is that Skywalker senior is just not likeable enough. We don't feel his pain or loss because we don't really care about him. We don't buy his love affair, we don't buy his friendship with Obiwan, and we certainly don't buy how quickly he crosses over to the darkside when that fateful moment comes.
In the original trilogy the darkside of the Force seemed to be the ultimate evil-something to be feared and respected. The torture on Luke's face when confronting his father and The Emperor in Empire and Jedi is painful to watch. In the new trilogy the danger seems to have evaporated into the CGI scenery along with any feeling of dread for Anakin's fate.
Still, Lucas delivers enough money shots to keep most of the people happy most of the time. The opening space battle, General Grevious' lightsabre duel with Obiwan, and the slaughter of the Jedi, are all handled superbly.
The final battle between Obiwan and Anakin is breathtaking against the volcanic setting but its tragic outcome is botched badly. The sight of the newly created Vader screaming "NOOOOOO!" like Grant Mitchell after Tifany's death on Eastnders is hilarious. Thank god the later sight of Vader looking at the Death Star with a young Grand Moff Tarkin reminds us of the heady days of A New Hope when Lucas and his audience were more in tune with one another.

And so it all came down to this - the last ever Star Wars film (for now?) and the last chance George Lucas would ever have to claw back his reputation from the fans so let down by the previous two installments. On May 19, 2005, six years to the day of the release of 'The Phantom Menace' the bridge between the new and old trilogies was finally complete. Despite never glimpsing the true might of the Clone Wars (that came later - in animated form) the film started of in considerable style with a fantastically epic space battle. Things continued in style with the introduction of General Grievous, a superbly designed villain able to wield FOUR lightsabers at once. But still the problems remained - poor scripting, variable acting and WAY TOO MUCH CGI! Witness the scene when Obi Wan chases down General Grievous on the planet Utapau mounted upon a giant lizard monster. Yes, it's an impressive looking scene but Ewan McGregor looks lost amidst this onslaught of CGI beasties and backgrounds resulting in an emotional detachment from the whole thing. Things did improve for the finale with an epic fight leading to Anakin's eventual defeat and a suprisingly graphic aftermath. And then the moment came. The birth of a legend. The mask slowly came into shot and suddenly fans were witness to the creation of Darth Vader. The final link in the chain from Anakin Skywalker to the Lord of the Sith we all grew up loving. And the scene did impress in its execution right through to the first iconic breath of Lord Vader. But then the whole scene instantly fell apart with what seemed like a poorly advised parody of Frankenstein and suddenly all the menace and atmosphere was lost in a moment of unintentional hilarity. Then, as the end grew nigh, all the loose ends were quickly tied up in an admittedly memorable but at times rather too neat way. And that was it. All done. Time to go home. It's only a movie after all. And so the new trilogy came to a decidedly average end and left people in no doubt that the original trilogy was still the greatest - with the occasional moment of brilliance ultimately overshadowed by an overwhelming sense of 'Is that it?' Nevertheless, the DVD, as is expected comes with all the expected trimmings (including a fascinating documentary examing 1 minute of footage and breaking it down into its hundreds of differents components - even catering gets a mention) So 'Revenge of the Sith' like 'The Phantom Menace' and 'Attack of the Clones' before it will forever remain an average film on a fantastic DVD. It seems the time has come for George Lucas to pack up his bags and move on from this galaxy far, far away leaving us with the cherished memories we already have. For on the evidence of this new trilogy it will only end in tears should he continue...

Oh, this is sooo good. From the amazing first shots to some awesome lightsaber fights to the slightly less dodgy writing than the others. Enjoy it as the suns go down.

 BY FAR THE BEST OF THE PREQUEL TRILOGY!

After severe fan disappointment with THE PHANTOM MENACE and ATTACK OF THE CLONES, it was obvious that GEORGE LUCAS had to really pull out all the stops for REVENGE OF THE SITH.

This was to be the film, after all, that Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker finally becomes Sith Lord, Darth Vader! A darker approach would be needed, something akin to Irvin Kirshner's monumental THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, and although by no means perfect, this third instalment is by far the best of the prequels.

Things begin at breakneck speed with a mighty fleet engagement between Separatist and Republic forces above the planet of Coruscant, where the Separatists have kidnapped Chancellor Palpatine but been thwarted in their escape. Jedi Knights Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker attempt to rescue the Chancellor from the Separatist flagship, only to endure fateful encounters with Count Dooku and new villain, General Grievous.

Events then slow down considerably and we are back to the politics which some thought marred THE PHANTOM MENACE. This time Anakin Skywalker is central to the plot, a pawn in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse. He is used by both Palpatine and the JedI Council to spy and report on each other, a role which severely tests his loyalties to both causes. Lots of dialogue follows, but it is the battles which the fans are really waiting for.

When fighting does start, events whiz by at great speed! There are lightsaber duels galore, with even Palpatine showing his combat abilities, and an opportunity for LUCAS to introduce fan favourite Chewbacca (in his pre-partnership days with Han Solo) when Yoda visits the Wookie home world. The jewel in the crown, though, is undeniably the long awaited duel between Obi-Wan and Anakin, newly turned to the Dark Side of the Force and proclaimed Darth Vader! It is certainly worth waiting for.

In among all the action of the film's second half loose ends are tied up which will set future (original trilogy) events in motion. The Jedi Temple is ruthlessly destroyed by legions of Clones, then "Order 66" is given by Palpatine allowing his Clone troops to slaughter their Jedi Generals (in a series of moving scenes), and a now disfigured Palpatine creates the First Galactic Empire with himself installed as Emperor. Meanwhile, Padme gives birth to a certain set of twins while Anakin, critically injured in battle, dons his life-saving, iconic black helmet and armour...

The cast performances are, for the most part, fine. CHRISOPHER LEE sadly has little more than a cameo as Count Dooku this time round, although IAN McDIARMID is superb as Palpatine and EWAN McGREGOR finally puts his mark on the role which SIR ALEC GUINESS had made his own. LUCAS, too, has listened to fan advice and moved hate figure Jar-Jar Binks into the background so his CG creation is barely seen, although he is still heavily dependent on computer animation throughout.

The second disc contains hours of bonus material - trailers and TV spots, several featurettes, a feature-length documentary and the "A Hero Falls" music video. There are also six (rather dialogue heavy) deleted scenes including Bail Organa and Mon Mothma, the future leaders of the Rebel Alliance, discussing rebellion, plus Yoda's arrival on the planet Dagobah.

With a good film and so many features, fans of STAR WARS will certainly find much to enjoy with REVENGE OF THE SITH!
