How do you write a review for THE movie of the year without caving in to pressure? The first thing I can definitely point out is that the prequel trilogy of "Star Wars" has completed the circle in its failure to be better than the original trilogy. Before you people start throwing rocks at me, I'm not saying that "Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith" is a bad movie. No, but it's a movie that does not have the power to stay with you like the movies in the original trilogy did.

Yes, you'll be awe struck, gob smacked, sitting-at-the-edge-of-your-seat-gripping-the-armrest as you watch the splendid action and special effects transpire on screen but after you walk out of the cinema, you'll probably be too dazed to remember what the heck happened during the movie. By far the darkest and most depressing "Star Wars" yet, this movie won't hold you in suspense, as every one already know what's going to happen in the end.

That said, I shall be forever grateful that "Episode III" did not have any nauseatingly happy Bollywood inspired love scenes in it, something which I would rather forget from "Episode II". This time, the love between Amidala and Anakin is more restraint, more obsessive, darker, if I may say so, the ultimate lead to Anakin's convergence with the dark side. Of course, Amidala being relegated to a less than prominent role in this one was a little disappointing.

Hayden Christensen's portrayal of Anakin has improved dramatically since "Episode II". Not only did he get hotter with that shoulder length hair and better-defined body (sorry, I am but a normal girl after all), he has improved in his movements during fights and facial expression as well. Yes, he's still a little monotone in dialogue delivery but body language counts more no?

Ewan McGregor gave his best performance yet as Obi Wan Kenobi. You will be rooting for him all the way, especially in the climatic battle between him and Anakin. You can see the progress of character in this Obi Wan, characteristics that are similar to the Obi Wan that you know in the original trilogy. Thumbs up to Ewan McGregor.

So, is this the best Star Wars? Out of the prequel trilogy, definitely! Is it worth watching a couple of times at the cinema? You bet! Is it better than the original trilogy? Sadly, no, but it's still good. Will non Star Wars fans enjoy it? I would say yes but they might not get the hype about it.
