Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith

Revenge Of The Sith is the finale of the whole underwhelming trilogy and it is the best, which is not saying a lot. This one at least has some semblance of a plot with Anakin finally going evil and going on a killing spree though there are other hanging threads, where Yoda and Obi-Wan go, which still seem so haphazard. This one does occasionally have a memorable moment for better or for worse. In that it has the most unintentionally funny moments many of those involving a security hologram line which even Ewan McGregor could not keep a straight face saying. There's also the full version of the Emperor where Ian McDiarmid goes for UNLIMITED HAMMMMMM, but I'll admit entertainingly so. Plus he has his opera scene beforehand which still is not great, but somewhat interesting. There some light saber duels of varying qualities which also go on too long. There's plenty of bland moments to be found in excessively fake sets throughout. The acting again for the most part is extremely uninspired with Christensen failing miserably to be the least bit menacing though I must just be "underestimating his power". The film's a disaster still really but like a good disaster there's some emotion to be found as well as some amusement. It still is not a good film, but there's more there to enjoy than its predecessors.
