A View at the Movies:Ep. 3: Revenge of the Sith

Yes, I finally saw the great Episode 3. It was great. The movie starts off with action and fight scenes. Obi Wan Kenobi and Anakin are leading the troops against General Grievous. Anakin and Padme (Natalie Portman's) marriage is still secretive. After a series of events, Anakin and Obi-Wan rescue Chancellor Palpatine. Anakin also gets revenge on Count Dooku, the man who cut his arm off. Anakin has to battle his dark urges. Also, Chancellor Palpatine has tricks up his sleeve. As everyone and their grandma knows, Anakin becomes Darth Vader. The HOW is crazy. Anakin is seriously gangsta in this film. R2D2 is also gangsta in this movie. HE actually spills oil on some troop and sets them on fire! R2's the man! You also see the extermination of the Jedi knights. Samuel Jackson (Mace Windu) finally has a one-on-one battle, and Yoda and the Wookies cut loose. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Sure, I'm a bit of a geek, but this is a great summer-type movie. Action, adventure, even angst as we see the dissolution of Anakin and Padme's relationship even though she is carrying his children (who are Luke and Leia of the "other" Star Wars trilogy). The movie is very dark and surely deserves its PG-13 rating. It is a very thrilling yet disturbing character study about the temptation of power and being led by emotions. I strongly reccomend anyone looking for a good action film with some psychological undertones to check this one out. I give it 5 lightsabers. Be easy.
