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


The Top Ten

1 Jar 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

2 Kid Anakin is annoying

Incredibly annoying. - Therandom

Now this is pod racing!
Give me a break. - IronSabbathPriest

Meh, Christensen was worse. - BeatlesFan1964

3 Some of the characters are bad
4 Galactic 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

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

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

6 There was no good reason for the film's opening
7 The Gungans are almost as annoying as Jar Jar

Worst Star Wars species, ever. - Therandom

8 The Pod Race scene has nothing of importance to star wars

It wasn't that bad...

Yep, I hate this. - Therandom

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

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

Racism? I didn't notice any racism huh

The Contenders

11 Anakin's "virgin birth"
12 The scene where Padme and Anakin meet was very cheesy
13 Anakin 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.

14 Queen Amidala's ridiculous makeup

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

15 Little 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

16 Outdated CGI in big battle scenes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

For some reason this bothered me a lot. - Anonymousxcxc
