Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith 3D
George Lucas draws the Star Wars film series to a close with this dark sci-fi adventure which sets the stage for the events of the first film and brings the saga full circle. After a fierce battle in which Obi-Wan (Ewan McGregor) and Anakin (Hayden Christensen) join Republic forces to help free Chancellor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) from the evil Count Dooku (Christopher Lee) and his minions, Anakin is drawn into Palpatine's confidence. Palpatine has designs on expanding his rule, and with this in mind he plants seeds of doubt in Anakin's mind about the strength and wisdom of the Jedis.… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A grave and vigorous popular entertainment, a picture that regains and sustains the filmic Force [Lucas] dreamed up a long time ago, in a movie industry that seems far, far away."
‑ Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
"McGregor, Portman, and Christensen have all been brilliant elsewhere but the bonds between their characters are all in the dialogue, never between the lines. (And the less said about the lines themselves, the better.)"
‑ Keith Phipps, AV Club
"The bar has been set so low in mainstream Hollywood movies that it's not even worth seriously analyzing this stuff"
‑ Jay Antani, Cinema Writer
"Of course, being best Star Wars film since Empire Strikes Back isn't saying much, when you consider what came between..."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"The only one of the trilogy that actually works as both a good Summer movie and a solid sci-fi movie in its own right."
‑ Garth Franklin, Dark Horizons
"Lucas is a brilliant technician but a poor philosopher, and his lurchingly thought-out rendering of futuristic politics prevents the entire series from achieving the greatness to which it aspires."
‑ Ken Tucker, New York Magazine/Vulture
"Although the stiff theatrics are part of the design, they're no longer excusable."
‑ Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"As the finale approached, I just didn't want to leave my seat, because that meant it's all over... supposedly."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"This one had the most potential, and in that way it is the most disappointing."
‑ Joe Lozito, Big Picture Big Sound
"full review in Greek"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
".. even though Revenge is a better experience than Phantom Menace or Attack of the Clones, it doesn't add anything that satisfying or compelling to the big picture."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Not far into the first third of the movie, I didn't think I was going to make it all the way through the percussive nonstop action."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"Lucas slips up on a few fronts en route, but doesn't disappoint when it counts."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"A fitting capstone on a collection of screen classics for the ages!"
‑ Kam Williams, Princeton Town Topics
"The best-looking Star Wars episode of all, if not the most exciting, most imaginative or most affecting."
‑ Kim Newman, Sight and Sound
