Top Ten Reasons Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace is the Worst Star Wars Movie


The Top TenXW

1Jar Jar Binks is one of the worst film characters of all time

If he wasn't in this movie, this movie wouldn't have been half as bad. - Therandom

The Winter Soldier character is the worst film character of all time because he tried to kill Black Widow and Captain America. - Metts

2Kid Anakin is annoying V4 Comments
3Some of the characters are badV1 Comment
4Galactic Politics are boring

Unlike episode III where the politics actually showed the rise of the empire and were interesting, this movie just made it a snore fest - Jackamalio

Episode III got more interesting things going on in Galactic Politics. - Metts

5There was roughly 30-45 minutes of action which is not enough

There should be an hour of action for a Star Wars film. - Therandom

Star Wars Episode III and Episode VII had the most action and the original trilogy has more action and than Episode II. - Metts

6There was no good reason for the film's opening
7The Gungans are almost as annoying as Jar JarV2 Comments
8The Pod Race scene has nothing of importance to star wars

Anakin won the podrace to earn money to use it to pay to fix the starship. - Metts

9The acting was stiff
10The racism that is used for some characters is bad

I haven't watched the film in quite a while. When is there racism? - IronSabbathPriest

The Contenders

11Anakin's "virgin birth"

Palatine uses the force to create Anakin. - Metts

12The scene where Padme and Anakin meet was very cheesyV1 Comment
13Anakin Being the Creator of C-3PO

It was already established in the original trilogy that Darth Vader was the father of both Luke Skywalker, & Princess Leia. Making him the creator of C-3P0 was only overdoing it.

14Queen Amidala's ridiculous makeup

Her makeup made her too ugly to look at. - sketchysteve

15Little Anakin is considered "too old to become a Jedi," by Yoda

This really isn't something to complain about. Anakin was about 9 or 10 at the time of The Phantom Menace, and by that time there was too much anger in him. - IronSabbathPriest

That makes no sense. Anakin is young. Not old.

That makes no sense. Snaking is young. Not old.

What? Suddenly 10 = old? That makes no sense. - sketchysteve

16Outdated CGI in big battle scenes
17The creatures looked too cartoonish
18The plot is stupidV1 Comment
19Obi Wan's ponytail

For some reason this bothered me a lot. - Anonymousxcxc

20Not Enough of Darth Maul

There should of been more Darth Maul in it. - Metts
