Verdict on Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith
Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith is the final chapter in the prequel saga. It does have the most interesting turn of events, as it will show Anakin embracing the dark side and the war between the two sides starting.
Apart from the massive battle between the two sides, the story does still seem to have a bit of a disconnect, when we follow the two sides of the story.
As the final chance to see Dark Vadar in his true human form, this is what we needed. We have seen the darker side rising from Attack of the Clones. Proving he was going to become the great evil in the universe. It might have been more interesting to see more between Anakin and Obi-Wan about controlling the good side because in most of the films we have seen isolation becoming the major factor for his change.
Final Thoughts – Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith has the battles to save the conclusion of the series.
