A brilliant movie, Revenge of The Sith is!!

George Lucas is a genius. I saw Star Wars:Episode III - Revenge Of The Sith yesterday and the movie left me speechless. The amazing special effects combined with a gripping storyline makes it an absolute masterpiece. Lucas has beautifully shown the transition of Anakin Skywalker(Hayden Christensen) from an honourable Jedi to a Master of the Dark Side. The greatest thing about the movie is that you know what is going to happen yet you wish fervently for an alternate ending. You hope that Anakin listens to his Jedi master, Obi Wan Kenobi(Ewan Mcgregor) and his wife, Padme Amidala (Natalie Portman). You anxiously watch the fight scene between the mater and pupil . You feel sad on seeing the tragic tale of a good man going bad. The scene when Obi Wan defeats Anakin is brilliant. You can see the sadness in Obi Wan's eyes when Anakin lies defeated and disfigured. He cannot believe that his talented disciple has succumbed to the Dark Side. Ewan McGregor is awesome as Obi Wan Kenobi. It is incredibly difficult to act in front of a blue screen but Mcgregor pulls it off superbly. Hayden Christensen has done a good job as Anakin Skywalker though he could have been better. The fight sequences were absolutely brilliant. There was some light comedy too in the movie with R2D2. Revenge Of The Sith is a fitting end to to this wonderful series and is definitely a must-see.

My Rating: 7.5/10

Hmmm... must watch it. Can i watch it without having watched the Phantom Menace and the thing that followed the former?

I had seen only the phantom menace before watching Rev. of the sith. If you know the general story , the movie won't be confusing. The little guy, Anakin in the phantom menace marries Queen Amidala who's like so many years older than him. Thats the main thing that happened in the Attack of the clones(Episode 2).
