Brief Synopsis – As the Clone Wars rage on, the Jedi are sent on a mission to rescue the Chancellor from nefarious forces led by the evil Count Dooku.

My Take on it – Such an amazing way to end the prequel trilogy and IMHO this is by far the best of the three.

They finally give viewers a chance to see the fall from grace both on personal levels and galactic ones.

The action scenes are amazing to watch and they find ways to keep raising the suspense of everything that happens along the way.

The special effects are superb and enhance this story even more because it allows for things to look and feel even more realistic as it all plays out.

The cast is great and they add s much continuity to how the story ends up continuing in future installments.

The music by John Williams is haunting and is able to give so much more poignancy to everything that transpires here.

The light-saber battles are the most intense of any of the films in the franchise and are wondrous to watch unfold.

The one minor complaint that I have about this film (and in just about all of them ) is that sometimes the emotional dialogue spoken by characters just doesn’t come across genuinely enough, but the story itself more than compensates for these small moments.

Watching the enactment of Order 66 always puts tears in my eyes, because it is such a powerful part of this story.

Highly Highly Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Chancellor Palpatine’s strategy for maintaining power is known to political scientists, and is called Perpetual War. He comes to power through conflict with the Trade Federation, gains greater privileges through the Clone War, and solidifies his position through war on the Jedi. (From IMDB)

Rating – Oscar Worthy (10/10) (no change from original review)
