A Darkly Rousing Ride!
REVENGE OF THE SITH had to live up to some pretty high expectations. It has to show one man's spiral down from bravery to satanic evil in 150 minutes. And it concludes the most popular and epic movie saga of all time. The good news: it exceeds all expectations and is one of the best in the series. The bad news: it isn't a family movie, unlike the other films.
REVENGE OF THE SITH is definitely not one you'd choose for your kids and you to watch on Friday night. It is dark and violent, and will give youngsters nightmares. Little kids won't understand why Anakin is noble at the beginning and evil at the end. And they won't take kindly to the fact the all of the heroic Jedi from the two other prequels are killed. This is for sure the best prequel, with great acting from McGregor (as Obi-Wan) and a show-stealing performance from Ian McDarmid as Palpatine.
Violence is constant. Maimings, decapitations, slittling, shooting, and an intense buring sequence that...well, let's just say it's plain and easy to see where Vader gets those ugly scars. There is no sex, drugs, or language.
Even though I don't give specific examples of violence, trust me that no one under 11 should be allowed to see this film. But for those who can see it, it will be a knock-out experience. Highly recommended.
