This is the third year of the Clone Wars. The Galactic Republic, once a calm and harmonious state, has become a battlefield between the clone armies led by Chancellor Palpatine and the droid armies led by Count Dooku, the Dark Lord of the Sith. The republic is slowly plunging into darkness. Only Jedi Knights, defenders of peace and justice, can resist the evil that will soon swallow the galaxy. But the real battle is in the soul of the young Jedi Knight Anakin, who is torn between the duty of the Jedi and the love of his wife, Senator Padma Amidala. And the future of the whole world depends on how the feeling in him wins.

Here it is – the darkest and most cruel film of the entire saga. Having released the classic trilogy of episodes IV-V-VI at the beginning, the creator of the franchise, George Lucas, has released three prequel films over the years, so that the whole picture of the Star Wars universe is clear. Now, after the release of the final third episode, all parts of the mosaic have merged together, giving us in total the most famous fantastic saga in the history of cinema, which has no analogues so far.
Perhaps, quite a while ago, a fantastic blockbuster did not shake me so emotionally. If in the previous parts the atmosphere of expectation of some terrible event prevailed, then the entire third episode is this very terrible event, with all the consequences that follow from this. Without a doubt, this part can be called the darkest and literally desperate in the whole saga. Even the gloomy and philosophical fifth episode (which, in my opinion, and not only mine, is the best in the saga) ÂThe Empire Strikes Back remains a bit in the shade (precisely in terms of the oppressive atmosphere).
This is a somewhat controversial proposition, because in this case the emotions of the audience are manipulated by general injustice and, in fact, all emotions are caused by a simple way of demonstrating cruelty, so for me personally, the above fifth seems a little more honest. But I do not detract from the merits of the third episode. He is without a doubt the best in the new trilogy.
What I liked most about this tape was its focus and directorÂs viewing angle. Due to the fact that we already know the denouement, the director could simply choose the position of the observer and simply logically bring everything that happens to the initial actions of the fourth episode. But Lucas took a different path: he made the audience literally empathize with what was happening, and IÂm sure that for the majority somewhere in the depths of my soul there was a tiny spark of hope that something would change and the feeling of general hopelessness would disappear.
To create a sense of ownership, our good uncle Lucas demonstrates all the events from the point of view of Anakin Skywalker, at some points deliberately making the Jedi more formidable and … selfish or something. Again the very double bottom appears in the plot, which I appreciate most in this saga. Everything has a double meaning. Yes, Anakin fell on the Dark Side of power, but it all started with love, which he desperately did not want to lose. Here is evil for you …
It is especially touching that all of this could have been avoided if the Jedi were less reckless. Throughout AnakinÂs career, the Council rotted him for disobeying the code of the order, however, in the climax of Mace Windu and Darth Sidious, a member of the Jedi Council himself wanted to cross the line and kill unarmed despite the same Code. Perhaps this was the impetus of Skywalker to betrayal. Well, once you get to the Dark Side, as Yoda said, you will forever bind your fate with it.
We can talk about the philosophy of the series for a long time, so it’s time to move on to something else. For example, memorable episodes. The visual perfection of the third episode is simply magnificent and, as always, is out of time: our future kids will surely watch this tape without any twinges of conscience. After watching, literally squeezing all the emotions out of you, you are unlikely to want to review the film (except after some time), but individual episodes constantly pop up in your memory: the opening battle with droids to save the Chancellor, the murder of Windu, the fight with Grievous and of course, the final battle lightsabers between two best friends. This is perhaps the most epic and most difficult, from a moral point of view, episode of the saga.
In my opinion, there were no problems with the dynamics either. The dialogs are lively and interesting, and the battle scenes are adrenaline and completely boring. No less enthusiasm is caused by music. The London Symphony Orchestra did something incredible – from the music literally goosebumps run through, so after watching I immediately found a soundtrack in order to resume those very impressions.
Errors in the acting aspect have also been eliminated. Hayden Christensen, who was the weakest link in the ensemble of the previous episode, apparently prepared thoroughly for this tape – he pulled out all his dramatically episodes perfectly, and his look in the second half of the film was something indescribable. Here he is – Darth Vader without a mask. Finally, the second-order actors, who this time played their characters brighter than usual, showed themselves: Samuel L. Jackson and Ian McDiarmid were simply magnificent and colorful as never before. Natalie Portman is still beautiful and in the finale it was even sad that the new trilogy is ending. Evan McGregor has already demonstrated in his character the features of the old Obi-Wan from the classic trilogy, which is already worth a lot.
Star Wars: Episode 3 – Revenge of the Sith – a true masterpiece not only in the genre of science fiction, but for the whole cinema as a whole. In terms of emotional level, it can be compared with the best episodes of the saga – V and VI. So, to all lovers of emotional, spectacular and simply high-quality cinema – my sincere recommendations.
