Right. Part 3. Don’t get me wrong. I like Star Wars. I like the originals and I like the prequels. I don’t, however, like crap. And that’s exactly what 2/3 of the prequels are. Crap.
The plot continues on from 4 years after Attack of the Clones, and the war, dubbed The Clone War, is still being waged across the galaxy. The Jedi are being spread thin over the galaxy, as they lead the clone troopers to battle against the evil
CAPITALISTS SEPARATISTS. The Separatists have managed to kidnap the leader of the Republic, and as such, a skirmish is taking place above the Galactic Capital. Coruscant. During the battle, two Jedi manage to rescue their boss. After about half an hour of this, we have a shit load of filler, ending in the turning of a main character to the bad guys, resulting in a load more crazy shit occurring, in turn resulting in the death of most of the Jedi. Eventually, a Jedi-Sith show down occurs, and the Jedi wins, but has to had as the bad guys now control the galaxy, as they have done since The Phantom Menace, as the leader of the both sides, was the same man. SHOCK! HORROR! OH MY GOLLY GOLLY GOXENFREE! Oh, and the guy who turned bad’s wife gives birth to a boy and a girl, but they’re aren’t important until next time.
Ok, so the plot is a bit thin, but if you have seen the original trilogy, you will know that it fills in a lot of the plot holes, like wet concrete and potholes…
Cast. I can’t be bothered to repeat myself, so see my The Phantom Menace review from Sunday, if you wanna know about this. The same goes for special effects.
Ok. A score. Like the musical scores that John Williams has made? No. That would be stupid. DUN DUN DUN DUN!… (You should have read that like at the beginning of Beethoven’s 5th Symthony. I highly recommend that you listen to it if you haven’t already…) I meant a score out of 10 you imbecilic writer. Oh. Ok.
Now that I’ve won THAT argument, I give this film a 6/10. It’s not great, but it’s not terrible, it fills in the plotholes and the lava special effects were superb. Again. 6/10. Enjoy!
