Yet another Star Wars 3 review

Just about everyone seems to have reviewed Star Wars 3: The Revenge of the Sith, and I decided to get on that bandwagon too.

Mostly cribs here. I feel complete and all that jazz. So let's get to the crux of the matter.

The last installment in the prequel trilogy comes across as one big convoluted effort on the part of George Lucas to explain how Obi-Wan Kenobi got his hands on Anakin Skywalker's lightsaber (the one he passes on to Luke in Star Wars 4: A New Hope). It's just a filler between movies 2 and 4. Bollywood uses song and dance sequences instead.

What was with Ewan MacGregor? His failed attempts at a Brit accent did not make him a young Alec Guiness. Alec Guiness who?? The REAL Obi-Wan Kenobi. And what was with those cheesy James Bond kind of one liners anyway?

But still as a die hard fan of the series, it was a good time pass movie. It will never be a classic like the original 3, but entertaining anyway.
