Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith


This is not the second best star wars movie, stop lying to yourself, from a dialogue standpoint it is atrocious, but Lucas never was good at writing dialogue so I find that forgivable. My problem what this movie is it's atrocious acting (Haydan Christiansen), lightsaber battles that are choreographed so well that you feel no tension, no emotion, it just looks like a staged dance, one of the worst romances ever put to screen and the fact that it relied on special effects and space battles to insist that it is entertaining. This is not to say that I don't like this movie, I do, it's a b movie, the scenes with Palpatine tempting Anakin are great and the special effects are enormously better that the first two prequels. I would never think to watch it again but it kept me entertained for a time. To rank this movie over episode 4, 7 and 6, even Rouge 1 is a travesty. We don't like star wars for it's cool space battles lightsaber fights and lines, but for their intriguing characters, ...more

I have to admit, usually originals to a saga are usually the best, but I can't get over how well done this movie was. I mean, the answered everything about why anakin turned to the dark side and showed his true emotions that you don't get to see in the originals. By a clear mile the best Star Wars movie. Come on, even the fights.

Episode 3, along with being the most action-packed and having the most lightsaber duels, is also the most emotional. Combining the music with the movie really makes it so emotional. - Blubbydubber1

This is the best Star Wars movie because it has the best light saber battles, the best graphics, it has the most entertaining story, Obi-wan Kenobi is awesome in this movie, and this is the only Star Wars movie that Darth Sidious fights in.

My two favourite fights are all in this episode! The fight between the leader of each respective side and the two most powerful characters - Yoda and Darth Sidious, and the fight between the two best characters - Darth Vader / Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi. - Goku02

I believe Hayden did an amazing job at portraying anakin skywalker and his battle with good and evil, also this film is the most intense and also holds the series best light saber battle. This is the second best behind the empire strikes back

Why is this CGI awfulness over episode 4 and 6, which are classic movies. Episode 4 changed movies forever. The only good thing we learned from this movie is: CGI looks fake! CGI do not save a movie if the actors and the plot sucks, neither do lightsaber battles! - hurrhurrman

This is the best Star Wars movie and one of the best movies of all time it has the most action out of any Star Wars movie and the most light saber duels and it is how Anakin became Darth Vader the lightsaber duel between Obi Wan and Anakin is the best lightsaber duel out of the whole series

My personal favorite. From amazing fight scenes to breath taking geographical locations, this movie never looses the grasp of the onlooker. Not to mention, this is also the darkest of the films. In it, you see Anaken turn to the dark side, and kill thousands of jedi (children alike! ). And to top it off, this film holds amazing graphics, AND the jaw dropping final fight scene.

It's my second favorite movie of all time (after Return of the Jedi), it had one of the best battles in all movie history. The plot was amazing, Anakin had a struggle to decide which side he wants to be on, the Good to stay loyal to the Jedi and the bad to save Padme. Very dramatic

Best Storyline, Good Looking Characters and very emotional at the end, Best sword fight..only other good sword fight was in The awaken episode 7. This episode I'd watch more than twice.

I quite honestly like the prequels (Episode 1 is the worst of them though). Everyone hates the politics in them and that's really the only way that it could be explained on how the Empire was created. Fans asked Lucas for a backstory of Vader and the Empire and this is the only way to explain it. Then they complained but honestly the outcome was great. They also make fun of some things that are minor like Grevious riding the one wheeled thing next to the creature when the original trilogy had moments like that that no one gave a crap about

The best of the prequels no doubt, although the storyline may not be the best of all 6 Star Wars films "revenge of the sith" is still AWESOME? Great battle scenes, light saber duels and the score by John Williams is epic

Absolutely love this movie. It's the darkest of all the star wars movies (the first to receive a PG-13 rating), and perfectly leads into the Original Trilogy, filling in virtually every major plot hole. And to top it all off, the movie has what I think was the peak of John Williams' scores, with chilling music to add to the intensity of the scenes. All around fantastic movie, edges Episode 5 to me. - JohnnyBoy1246

So deep and action packed, while at the same time, tell the story that ties the entire saga up. I personally like watching the story of Anakin better than Luke. Either way, this movie is a great one. - chadharvey

My god the prequels are underrated. Personally, this is my favourite Star Wars movie, by far. It's so unappreciated.

ROTS is my favorite movie of all time. So sad, but there is also hope. An epic masterpiece, well done George Lucas.

The reason this one is the best is because of how the emotional relationship Anakin has with obi wan and how they seal each others fate in the end.

This was a really good film but it does not deserve second place. The energize original trilogy was better but this movie is significantly better than the other two prequels. - Verderame

So underrated. I love this film. Palpatine is the best character. So much great content in one film. - pancake2015

Easily best of prequels and maybe better than empire strikes back? Great action though

This is, for my part, undoubtabely the greatest Star Wars movie. What really makes this movie stand out, is that it is so dark and that it really gets you into it. In my opinion, this is what a Star Wars movie should be. A movie that is dark and adapts well with the plot.

There are too many people who make this movie look bad so that is why it got a lower rating and because people were tired of the prequels.

I don't know why people don't like this movie. Its just so good.

I love this movie. It's such a shame that it doesn't salvage the 2nd trilogy as 1 and 2 were so bad. Only episode 5 is better in my opinion. - Alfa-Romeo
