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

I take it no one here has seen the Star Wars Holiday Special.

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

True. - Kevinsidis

Yep, there's racism. - Therandom

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13 Outdated CGI in big battle scenes
14 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.

15 Queen Amidala's ridiculous makeup
16 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.

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
