By now, no doubt, the three of you who read this have heard plenty of stuff about Episode III already, but I feel compelled to add my $.02.
It’s pretty darn good.
One of the “great films”? No.
Entertaining? Yes. Sucks less? Yes. In fact, didn’t suck at all.
It would have been an added bonus if there had been any acting by the principals. I would have found Annikan’s descent into darkness way more plausible if he had even a shred of acting ability. Sadly, he does not. But I found I could suspend that bit of disbelief.
Visually stunning, brings all the loose ends together in a way that’s plausible, no annoying comic relief in sight. Very textured environments.
Again, it would have been nice if the best acting in the film hadn’t been done by Yoda, but what can you realistically expect from Lucas?
Definitely worth seeing. And just in case you’ve missed out, check out Darth Vader’s blog at www.darthside.com. Genius.
