Is it flawed? Probably. Did that interfere with my ability to enjoy the hell out of it? Not in the slightest. 30 seconds into the movie (post crawler) You KNOW you are watching Star Wars, and I can't say the same about the first two prequels. This movie id worthy to wear the Star Wars badge, unlike those deliberate attempts to irritate and divide the audience Disney is barfing up. Those films are intentional cultural vandalism, they were never intended to be good. The same excuse can't be used on the two films which preceded this one. Darth Maul absolutely stole the show and saved the Phantom menace, and by his presence alone it earned a passing grade. I can't even remember what Attack of the Clones is about, or what happens in it, it was...BORING... With Maul not yet risen from the dead and the second film leaving me wished I'D been cloned (So I could have sent my clone to watch the movie) I wasn't expecting much from "Sith"...But the main event we've waited 30 years to see,: Darth Sidieous Vs. Yoda (C'mon, even the most jaded movie goer can't say THAT isn't worth the price of admission) not to mention Vader vs. Obi Wan round 1. Make this one of my fav Star Wars films.

Probably one of my top 2 favorie Sci-fi films of all time. Everything from the emotional story to the depth of the cinematography just compels me to go out and buy my kid a lightsaber so we can duel out in the yard. John Williams best work by far. The score for the Mustafar scenes and the little bit right before the Arrest of Palpatine where anakin is in the temple and padme is in her apartment and theyre staring out the window were both incredible.. This movie is a paragon of emotion. 5 stars.
This story was dark and sad, and really really good. I really felt Anakin's struggle and seeing the path that he took was heartbreaking. The acting was better in this one than the first two. And the script was way better. And very minimal silly stuff that detracts from the story (cough cough Jar Jar Binks). Chancellor Palpatine's fight scenes were a bit silly; he acted ridiculous with this silly look on his face and made some odd noises. If the acting and script had been better, I would have given this 5/5.
