Consensus: This sixth and final installment of George Lucas' epic space opera will please die-hard fanatics and non-believers alike -- largely due to awesome digital effects and the sheer power of the mythology.

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.)

.. 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.

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.

Lucas slips up on a few fronts en route, but doesn't disappoint when it counts.
