Justin Neal (10 out of 10 ) Very good script I couldn't taker my eyes off of it!
Sceptic (7 out of 10 ) Good story, great read, but something tells me this isnt the real script :P
N.Marshall (9 out of 10 ) I am very Impressed. After the... well somewhat shifty scripts to be produced for the first prequels, I had become skeptical that anything could be done to redeem the Star Wars Empire. I have not yet seen the film, but if this script is any indication, it should be quite the excellent film. The drama was woven exceptionally well with excellent dialogue, and for the most part, there were not many wasted scenes, as I found there to be in the earlier films. It harkens back to "The Empire Strikes Back", my personal favorite of all the SW films. There might be perhaps a bit too much gratuitous violence, but that will have to wait to be seen when I venture out to view the film on the screen (Which I shall be doing quite soon)
Thank you George Lucas, you have restored my faith in thee, and your intricately woven Star Wars Universe.
Andy Skillman (1 out of 10 ) I am gonna puke. Lucas must die. Thank heaves that this so called "series of GREAT movies" is OVER! Star Wars fans are total nerds. Emo and DDR for life!
Eric Hoppus (2 out of 10 ) you should have saved all your crap ideas for "star trek" you fat bastige! this movie was only saved by the fact that the girl sitting in front of me was completely topless!
John Aldrich (6 out of 10 ) dialog seems a bit too stale for the story that needs to be told, plus there are some lines from the trailers that are missing in this version. it's possible that those changes were made in mid-production, or possible that this could be a fake. Guess I'll know once I see the movie.
jen (10 out of 10 ) well, i read this after seeing the movie and i loved the movie and the script! Star Wars is amazing and this has become my new favorite movie, Star Wars or otherwise! the best scene when you watch it on screen is when obi wan is yelling to anakin about loving him, and how in the world could he have turned to the dark side!
Dr. Hermann (10 out of 10 ) A mi me parecio excelente pelicula, la vi el dia del estreno y creo que tiene todo lo necesario para triunfar como los otros episodios.
DaniCast (10 out of 10 ) Great script and great movie, very well done!
jessica (10 out of 10 ) Awesome script, and yes it is the real script because i saw the movie on may 21st. I still couldn't stop reading it. I love Star Wars, and i love how this episode turned out.
Master Obi-Wan (10 out of 10 ) Great movie, great script (why did Lucas cut out the Qui-Gon scene?!)
Best of the Prequels and maybe the best Star Wars movie ever!
Undecided (8 out of 10 )
*** possible SPOILER ***
Is this really the EXACT same script from the version in theaters? At the end of the movie, while Yoda is trying to meditate, I do not remember Yoda talking to Qui-Gon right before Bail Organa comes in.
PK (9 out of 10 ) This isn't the exact same script. Some scenes appear to have been edited out. Some dialogue during the opening battle, and most scenes involving Mon Mothma and Bail Organa seem to have disappeared, as has the Qui-Gon scene
me (1 out of 10 ) He can't write. (He also can't direct, but that's not relevant in talking about the script.) He shows actual disdain for logic and the reality of the universe he's created. (example: newly turned Sith Lord Vader marches up to the Jedi temple with 1000 clones behind him and the Jedi don't sense him coming?)
An (6 out of 10 ) I'd have to say that the special effects and action bits (more than bits seeing as that was the whole movie practically...o_O) were *amazing*. George Lucus has a definate talent with the camera and shot selection as well as being able to build up the tension and excitement. Dialogue was seriously lacking and most of the time a bit cheesy..
george (10 out of 10 ) great movie,it makes a great conection with episode IV but some scenes from this script were edited out.this movie was kind of more sad than the other 5,i mean,i never felt anything even close to sadness during the other 5 episodes
Tyrell (10 out of 10 ) The movie is awsome
Obi-Wan's fan (10 out of 10 ) Very, very, very ,very, very, very ,very, very, very ,very, very, very ,very, very, very ,very, very, very ,very, very, very ,very good :) !
It's a pity that the scene with Yoda and Qui-Gon was cut :( !
P.S :I hope that my English is correct, I am French ;) !
shannon (10 out of 10 ) wow GREAT read . can't wait 2 see the flim ........
Amanda (8 out of 10 ) I thought this joining movie really tied together some mysteries, for example, why the twins were separated at birth, and why Darth Vader required the whole suit. It was full of sadness, love, passion, compassion, remorse, death and new life. The only reason I marked it lower than 9 or ten was that I found Padme (Nattelie Portman) in the movie was much, much weaker. I know she was pregnant and all, but girl, you gotta show some backbone. And Nattelie Portman plays such a good strong female role, it was upsetting to see Padme now so weak and helpless. That is all, and may the force be with you.
Luke (10 out of 10 ) Let's hope, on DVD some of this politics part from the script will be present...
Steven (2 out of 10 ) I wish I could say I liked it, but George Lucas is an abysmal writer. He was wise to bring in other screenwriters for "Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi," and he was a fool not to do so for each of his prequels. This script contains some of the most pedestrian and inane dialogue I've ever heard: "He's worried about you. He thinks you're under too much stress." Give me a break! Lucas is incredibly creative and develops compelling and fantastic stories, but day-time soap operas have better dialogue.
Pat! (10 out of 10 ) The movie rocked and so did this script.
I only hope that all the scenes that got cut from the final movie make it onto the DVD special features. :)
Draghi (10 out of 10 ) The special effects, they are fantastics, whole is good, the story, the cast, the song... I love this film, its excellent, really.
MC Jesus (10 out of 10 ) The best movie ever!I can't get enough!Much better than LotR!Everyone who's rating is 7 or less:You don't have a good taste or you suxxxx!
sonya (10 out of 10 ) This movie is so amazing. And a lot of the dialogs from this movie is amazing almost the movie. Simply I love it.
Darth Yulivee (10 out of 10 ) Well I think ROTS is just the best movie ever!! I love Star Wars, the Prequels and the original movies, and I wish it hadn't been the last episode...
Master Jedi Jules (9 out of 10 )
This movie is Super Fly TNT - that's all you had to say!
Did you see the size of his light saber - it was bigger than him! It's a miracle - I believe god came down from heaven and stopped those laser blasts. I'm giving up the life and walking the streets.
Yoghurt (3 out of 10 ) All the prequels suxxxs. thought Lucas was a good director but he proved that I was wrong. Impires strikes back and Return of the Jedi have been perfect screened entertainment and will be. Lucas destroyed his own work in directing the prequels. He should have let Spielberg or other (better than him) done it. I am dissapointed. What a pity.
Cole (9 out of 10 ) Awesome. I really loved it. Anyone that's knocking this movie has no taste. Sure, the script is a little bit.. flimsy in places but it is far better than the other prequels by a long shot. I love Mustafar scene before Anakin and Obi fight, the "You're a good person, don't do this" and the like. Very good. Can't wait for the DVD, and hopefully Lucas you fag. IF YOU BY SOME CHANCE READ THIS. INCLUDE ALL THE DELETED SCENES AS PART OF THE MOVIE. Ep II could have been so much better if you kept Padmes family in it. Clown.
Chris (10 out of 10 ) i thought the film and script were excellent. who ever thought it was crap, id lke 2 c u make a film that rakes in as much money as these six. some of the scenes in the script were cut out though. why? like wen yoda goes in his pod 2 dagobah. i dont remember seeing that in the film and i saw it yesterday so.......
Darth A (10 out of 10 ) I loved all the films, but this is definitely the very best! The part of Anakin inadvertently bringing about the very thing he wants to avoid - losing Padme - has a quality of an Ancient Greek tragedy about it. I was deeply moved. Yes, please include the deleted scenes on the DVD (for which I am now passionately waiting). Thank you George Lucas for such a fine movie and shame over all those senseless fellows bashing it without reason.
Aston Jor-Cello (10 out of 10 ) Just finished reading the script, and even though I have seen the actual film 5 times since the release, the script still touches me the same way the movie does. As I read, in my mind I can still replay the exact scenes as they are dipicted on the the screen. Wonderful script, wonderful movie. I can't wait for the DVD, hopefully all these deleted scenes will make an appearance. Keep up the good work George Lucas, thank you for bringing the Star Wars galaxy here to our galaxy, where it will live on forever in our hearts and in our spirits, and will never die. Thank you, and may the Force be with you.
Darth Incredulous (3 out of 10 ) Really, the writing is so staggeringly awful as to almost defy belief! The Sunday Times culture magazine rearranged the letters of the word Shit, for the headline 'Sith Happens' and nothing could be more appropriate.
Like any bloke in their mid 20s I absolutely adore the original three films. And even though the poor quality of those scripts was summarised perfectly by Harrison Ford - "George, you can write this shit but you can't say it," they were at least a heap load of fun. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for these prequels.
Maser Yoda (10 out of 10 ) See lucas as a great film producer, i do.
JFGM (5 out of 10 ) Very bad end. Not because the bad guys eventually won. I mean bad in the sense of the argument. The reason of Anakin's conversion just because he wanted Padme not to die is not enough. Besides, If this goal was failed, why didn't he re-convert again when she died? He knew he wasn't the cause of her dead. So what? As usual with the two other films, very much effort in images, but very few in script.
G one (10 out of 10 ) breathtaking, awsome as the movie itself, hopefully Qui Gonn scene will appear in the DVD version
jessi (10 out of 10 ) this is the best one of em all i thought and some people were telling me it wasnt good at all but i said i have too see it first so i did and it was awesome and i told everyone and they said it still wasnt and i said yes it was...i wish they make more because i love star wars it awesome!!!!
vanessa (10 out of 10 ) OMG I could watch that movie over and over and over again!!!!!!!I absolutely LOVED IT!!!!I LOOOOOOVE STAR WARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
jeremy (7 out of 10 ) well, i love the music, and i allso love the movie. the scene is great!
Kayla (10 out of 10 ) I couldn't stop reading it. It really take shold of you.
Aidee Ray (10 out of 10 ) Lucas is a visionary genius. Ignore the naysayers. This film is mind blowing and dare I venture further, the best out of all six. I do have a few comments for the twits whose lack of faith is disturbing. (I) MR HOPPUS: Speaking on behalf of the fairer sex, I predict that sitting one row in back of that toppless girl in a dark theatre (or theater, as you prefer) is as close as you will ever get to a half naked female (human female.) Advice: Keep tossing sweetheart. (II) MR SKILLMAN: Dungeon Master says "PSYCHOPATH" Not to worry though, there are clinics and hotlines (free ones, not those 1-900 numbers you are use to dialling) for people like you. Get some help and perhaps a little perspective. (III) ME: "ME" is it? Either (1) you are not aware that "ME" is an objective pronoun and your dazzling display of ignorance is a reflection of the general decline of the American (or British ) education system or (2) you are one of those souless Durkheimian droids whose Mommy (or Mummy) overindulged at the toy store, as your fat little hands wailed in the air to your crys of "ME, ME, ME and more, more, more". Whatever the case maybe for your choice of alias, allow me if you will to indulge your over inflated sense of self and quote you. "... not relevant in 'talking' about the script." Sir/ Madame, I implore you, master grammer first and let your simple mind save the quest for logic to others more adept and ready for the task. Allow me to point out that when one is "writing" ( as you were so feebily attempting to do) they are not "talking". (IV)) DARTH INCREDULOUS: The Sunday Times? Really? Are you seriously quoting from a Newspaper that once employed on its roster of writers the likes of Tara Palmer-Tomkinson. If I subscribed to that TORY RAG, I would cetaintly keep it a secret. "Be mindful of your thoughts young "20-something bloke " they betray you as the 68 year old conservative pensioner that you truly are. I suppose the good news is that the LONDON TIMES newspaper will eventually cease to print once Michael Howard or whatever facist they next elect, completes the party mission to render itself irrelvant and into the history books, simultaneously wiping out the TIMES fan base and thus leaving gits like you to hours of banal reality television viewing for your info/enterainment. (V)STEVEN: I quote you in your critique of Mr. Lucas' choice of dialogue "Give me a break!" You open your Freshman Basic Composition 101 insight to criticise Lucas' dialogue and you offer up to the world the ever original narrative "Give me a break!" Are you a "Valley girl?" (VI) YOGHURT: Is Mr Lucas or anyone for that matter, really suppose to take advise or criticism form a person who chooses a dairy product as an alias? P.S. google TOEFL and ESL, it can only help.
SWJedi33 (10 out of 10 ) This was such a good script from a fantastic movie! Lucas is a one-of-a-kind guy! Well done, Lucasfilm!!
Me (10 out of 10 ) This is the REAL script (i watched the movie) and it was great! I read it three times. And to all those people who critize it: keep it to yourself! you couldn't do any better, in fact, you'd probably do so bad you'd make people cry.
Great movie, great script, great Lucas. great everything.
Lord Maxum (10 out of 10 ) ROTS was awesome. Even better than Empire. Good job in delving into the Chancellor's/Darth Sidious's character and Darkside of the force. Hopefully all of the deleted scenes will be included in the DVD, in particular the political scenes involving senators Organa and Mothma.
Lord Dissapointus (1 out of 10 ) The movie was mediocre and if it was released by itself with no history no one would argue. Saving grace is the political storyline which alludes to current events...though even this was so poorly done I couldn't take it seriously which is really a pity because this movie could have affected social change if done correctly.
How much did they pay ya George?
MrsKenobi (10 out of 10 ) This movie was just so emotionally powerful. I laughed at parts and I cried from the middle to the end. I have never seen another movie that has made me do both. Lucas can write! Wow! I was blown away. He put so much into this movie and connected everything just perfectly. It couldn't have been written any better. It was so good, I had to go see it once more. Anakin's fall to the Dark Side was perfect. Many people say it happened way to fast. But if your husband/wife was going to die, and you only had one way to save her/him, you'd probably do it- not matter what it was. Plus, the Chancellor was pulling him in, making it sounded like he related to Anakin's problems. I think the time plot was perfect. I don't care what others say- this movie kicked butt, made me cry, laugh, blew me away, and made me go back for the second time. I can't wait for it to come out on DVD! Great job, Lucas and may the Force be with all of you Star Wars fans out there!
Padme' (10 out of 10 ) This movie was my favorite of all 6 films. It was action-packed, but so emotional, as well. I cried, also, MrsKenobi. So sad. But perfect. I read the movie-based books and I read the 3rd one last night. I cried when I read it because it's just so powerful and emotional. Great film!
AlmostPerfect (9 out of 10 ) Great script. I wish they included the deleted scenes...
To whoever said Anakin's ONLY reason for turning to the dark side was to not lose Padme is mistaken.
i) He repeatedly said how he was limited by the Jedi. They didn't see his "true" potential (actually they did...they just didn't want to pump his ego too much). The chancellor played pride of Anakin's to a tee.
ii) He wanted more power. He wanted to be the greatest Jedi there ever was...and eventually that thirst for power turns to the dark side.
iii) He specifically to Padme that hey...I can kill the chancellor, and we'll rule the galaxy together. Case in point...Padme was not the only reason, power was also one.
And that need for power came out of the fact that he just wanted to be recognized. As soon as someone paid attention to him (i.e. Palpatine), he would be fooled into blindly trusting.
Yes, Padme did have a huge effect on him. But never just look at the surface, within that desire for Padme to live was desire for other things.
As well, Palpatine was so good at fooling people, at wieving webs of lies so deep that you couldn't tell light from darkness. Another reason why Anakin eventually fell to the dark side.
Anyway, I liked it. Definitely liked how it all leads into the first episode again (and by first I mean the original order). I especially loved that scene in the end...both Anakin and Padme are on the operating table. One operation sustains and in effect creates Darth Vader (and I mean the REAL darth vader...he wasn't vader unti lthat mask was on :P).
The other operation gives birth to the "New Hope", i.e. Luke and Leah. Oh...and now we know Luke is older haha...
So many things I personally would have changed...but that's just to fit my own imagination and likings, just as Lucas told the story he wanted to tell and I think he did a great job of that. If anyone doesn't like the story...well ok, think up of a better one.
Cheers, I give it 9/10. Not 10, because the dialogue could have been improved.
Tamara (10 out of 10 ) This is so goo , I cant stop reading this !:-)
I liek this a lot , !!!!!
Anday (10 out of 10 ) this movie rocked! I loved the drama, the romance, the action, but too much of the movie is flawed, like leia, why is she a princess if her mother is dead, and that lightsaber stuff, you turn it on and it goes yay high, how does it know where to stop? And the emporer, how hard is it to beat a crusty old man? and in the end where obi-wan is told that qui-gon is on tatooine or whatever its called, but you never see him in the original trilogy I love starwars, but there are too many questions left behind from all of the movies, damn you and your mysteries, Lucas
Darth Vader (10 out of 10 ) This movie was the greatest movie I have everseen.It was my favorite one out of all 6 of the movies. It was action-packed.This movie inspired me to turn to the dark side.I loved this movie.
Lance J. Vegas (10 out of 10 ) awesome movie, i even went buy all the action figures, about 42 of them, in a span of 3 months, can't wait for the DVD, this is the best, in my opinion, of the entire saga
jedi master yoan (10 out of 10 ) I LOVE THE MOVIE IT WAS MY FAVORITE MOVIE EVER... IT WAS SAD ACTION PACKED AND ALSO ROMANTIC. I CANT WAIT UNTILL I HAVE IT ON DVD.
MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU ALL!
your sincerly master yoan
Darth Incredulous (1 out of 10 )
Aidee, you really come across like some sort of Games Workshop loitering, comic book collecting, Star Wars merchandise hoarding,
sad, masturbating, wolly minded liberal. Why else would you rant on and on at detractors of the Star Wars movie, all of whom are perfectly entitled to their opinions? As for your obvious disdain for that ‘Tory rag’, The Sunday Times, is there any particular reason why eloquent, witty, intelligent writing puts such a bee in your bonnet. I don’t recall ever reading anything to do with politics at all in the culture magazine, that so beautifully trounced that complete cowpat of a film with words.
me (10 out of 10 ) hey i thought that it was an amazing movie and i have sween it everyday since it came out. Lucas has made good movies in the past but this tis the best i have seen from him in a while. i have every starwars movie including the origional 3 and this one is his best. the graphes are awsome and noone can do anything like it. but does anyone know why he did the last 3 first it doesn't make sence just do them in order then people are not wondering where skywaker and leah came from. other then that it was awsome
powerful sith jedi (10 out of 10 ) i was really please for final star wars movie i thought it was good and really sad i thought the final battle between obi wan and Anakin was really good but it could been longer like when anakin became darth vader have obi wan face him again but this time anakin is in the darth vader suite and more powerful
i didnt really like the episode 1 it didnt suite as all the other movie episode II,III,IV,V,andVI were very very very good out of the star wars movie i like EpsiodeIII and VI they both were really good they had good story line to it and at the end of VI im glad luke skywalker save his father and brought him back to the good side
ani'z gurls (10 out of 10 ) well im know ther r bigger fans then me i mean this is star wars ther r ova millions of fans .. but i must say the real story on how anakin turned to the darkside is just sad.. because u c him as a poor little boy and then as a romantic young man and know turning to the dark side as darth vader.. so watch the movie as soon as u can cuz its awsome and has a great endding to the saga .. u will leave the movies with no questions everything is wraped up after this movie .. 10 outta 10 .. great movie 1 to remeber 4 a long time C :
obi wan vs anakin (10 out of 10 ) i thought the final star wars movie was good i cried in alot of parts like whe ankin chop of mace windus arm and killed all the younglies i cried that anakin assinied eveyone on mtsafrie and when he tried to kill padme i thought that hayedn christenes played really good as anakin skywalker and i thought that he did really good when he became evil and turn to the darkside and betrayed allthe jedi and even his master kenobi and he went to far cuz i notcied when he kill eveyboby on mtsafari and cride and look out to the lava i like that when he turn to the screen his eyes became yellow i thought that was cool and i thought that anankin evil side was cool when he said to obi-wan u turn her aganist me and when he said that the jedi r evil and said i hate u at the end of the movie i thought the final battle between obi- wan kenobi and Anakin skywalker was really out standing it coudnt been a little bit longer when i saw episode 1 i know that ankankin was going to be come evil and jelious and selffish i like in episode 2 that he said someday ill will be the most powerful jedi ever and then said ill even stop pepole from dyeing and he was right about 1 thging he did become powerful but couldnt stop people from dyeing because he let padme die so other then that i like all the star wars movies may the force be with u to all the star wars fan and all the prodcers to star wars.
Jim Slater (2 out of 10 ) So, so, sooooooooooo bad...I can barely muster the words.
When I went to see this, even a small kid in a Darth Vader costume - jumping about and swinging his lightsaber in gleeful anticipation before the credits rolled, looked bored to bloody tears by the end.
As Public Enemy said: "Don't believe the hype!"
Thirty years in the making.....shit!
Simon (4 out of 10 )
I was disapponited with the transformation of Anakin to Darth. We were led to believe that Anakin wiped out the Jedi, when in fact all he did was slaughter the children.
There was no evidence of Anakin's fear anger and hate making him any stronger at all and, as it turns out, the only battle he has with a Jedi (Obi-Wan) he loses. All the other Darths would have kicked his arse too!
Also, are we expected to believe that the Darth helmet deepens Anakin’s voice from the high-pitched, balls haven’t dropped yet tones of a pretty boy teenager, to the booming, black man, juggernaut tones of James Earl Jones? Very strange.
Oh and because he loses his legs at the end, we must all assume that's the reason he stands at about 7ft tall in the original trilogy.
While I didn't care much for the acting or the script it's still Star Wars. I am deeply disappointed that we didn't see the birth of the most powerful and ruthless Jedi ofall time...one who, through sheer force of hatred, would cut down every Jedi himself.
And what does it say for the power of the fabled Jedi with their lightniing reflexes and sixth sense, that they are so feebly gunned down by crappy Clone troppers?
I got no sense of power from the 'powerful' in this film. If Anakin was a prophesy, a figure fortold in the cod-bilbical texts of the Jedi, why does he kill defenceless children in Episodes 2 and 3 and get his arse smacked by Ewan at the end?
Death2Emo's (10 out of 10 ) Excellent script. Emo's must die.
Jonathan (10 out of 10 ) I went to see it in the theaters. It was incredible! I never wanted it to end. That is by far my favorite movie I've ever seen. If there was a 1000 of ten rating, I'd choose it.
Cecile (1 out of 10 ) What's an EMO?
Ananomys (10 out of 10 ) I cried at the end. It was the best out of the 6.
Snaitf (10 out of 10 ) Man, I've read the book twice and seen the movie 6 times and it's still awesome! I love the references to the novel. Very nice. It's just too bad that the Qui-Gon scene was cut from the movie.. :( ah, maybe it will be a deleted scene...
and ya'll, unless you understand the plot, don't flame this. I mean, Simon (Not meaning to rag on you, BTW), Anakin did not only kill all the Younglings, he killed every Jedi in the temple as well, regardless of whether he had clone help or not, which would be, if you count all Younglings too young for missions, Padawans without Masters, Masters without Padawans that are not fighting, and everyone else in between, would probably be roughly 1000-2000 Jedi. And you can't forget that he and Obi-Wan have been in fighting almost every battle together for the past 3 years They have taught each other new tricks and know each other's secrets. That's why, even though Anakin is a lot stronger Midichlorian-wise (Obi-Wan's Midichlorian count is only 13,500 and Anakin's is I think 23,400), Obi-Wan is able to hold out against him until he sees and advantage (i.e. the hill by the lava)
His lungs were burned away to uselessness when he was burned alive by the lava. (Heehee look at him burn... oh, sorry ^_^) He cannot breathe or talk on his own except in a controlled environment (Thus we see him in ESB in that little black and white sphere thing with his helmet off) So, in essence, the vocabulator talks for him. He THINKS of what he wants to say the the vocabulator actually does the talking. What you hear in Ep. 4-6 is not his real voice, except when Luke takes the mask off.
The Prophesy of the Chosen One... that's a little harder to explain as there are so many different theories I've seen on the internet... I'll try though... all right, the reason the Chosen One turned to the Dark side and contradicted the Prophesy could be 1.) The prophesy was misread. That's an easy one because there's even a quote from Yoda speculating in Ep.3. 2.) The Prophesy never specified HOW the bringing of balance to the Force. The Jedi just did not expect it to come around the way it did, but Anakin in essence did destroy the Sith in Ep. 6. 3.) the Prophesy was intentionally misleading because it was planted by a Sith lord in the Jedi Order during the Sith War... that one I made up completely... ^_^;; Wow, I must be bored/hyper. Bad combination...
And as for the 6th sense bit, all I can say in there favor is that Darth Sidious was making the Dark side cloud their senses. You can get that much from dialogue between Master Windu and Yoda in Ep.2: "Blind we are, if the creation of this clone army, we did not see."
"I think it's time we tell the senate that our ability to use the Force has been diminished"
"Only the Dark lord of the Sith knows of our weakness. If told, the Senate is, multiply our adversaries will."
Wow... I actually remembered all that... I haven't seen Ep. 2 in like a year... Wait... ranting... got it! ^_^
Well, now that I've done that there's nothing to do... it's times like this when I wish my mom's laptop had WoW...
Namarie, Mellyn nin!
P.S. If I find that you've insulted my hubby, I will borrow his lightsaber and chop your hand of... Just kidding, ya'll! ^_^ I really AM hyper...
anonymous (9 out of 10 ) i was so sad when Padme died. her death was badly written. it would have been much better if she had died of her injuries, but anyways...i dunno how some critics can call padme frumpy? she was far from it! this and episode 2 are the best of the six, but the fight scene between obi-wan and anakin at the end was ruined by yoda and palpatines. they should have done the two seperately!
Maverick (10 out of 10 ) Well...pretty much one of the best screenplays i´ve ever read. especially the dialuoge at the end between Hayden and Ewen. "I hate you" ...."I loved you" . With these few words Lucas made up all the difference between Ani and Obi. Without doubt a masterpiece. And what i also really loved was that all became a little bit more complicated now. In the first three party Darth Vader was pretty much just evil. And now it´s not that simple anymore. I mean. Ani is not evil...he is human
Baxter (10 out of 10 ) It was the wolds gratis moive
PadmeBexObi (10 out of 10 ) I loved all the Star Wars films but this was the best of the prequels. It made me angry, and sad and happy. The film was brill!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
DarthKaos (10 out of 10 ) Wow, the script was even better than the movie. He really shouldn't have deleted certain scenes from the movie such as the Bail Organa scene which depict the birth of the rebellion, the scenes between Obi Won and Padme and Qui Gon Jin's visit with Yoda. I really hope they find there way onto the dvd. As for those of you who didn't like it, I guess there's no accounting for taste. Revenge of the Sith was one of the greatest movies i've ever seen.
Rose-Mary (10 out of 10 ) I love it a lot I even Beat my friend Maylin to do the rating she is a Star Wars Freak
jkthunder (10 out of 10 ) it should be noted that some parts of this script were not included in the film, but nothing that changes either version to any extent. you did it george. certainly went out with a bang. the fans are anxiously awaiting the DVD release.

OMG! This was, like, the cooooooooooooolest movie EVER! I, like, watched it with all my buddies and we are, like, the hugest Star Wars fans.
Hayden Christensen, like, rocks sooooo much! This was, like, the world's greatest, like, movie EVER!!!!
My mark is, like, 250 out of 10 for Christensen's ass-end alone.
Daisy (10 out of 10 ) I love the movie so much!As Anakin loves Padme!! I LOVE Anakin ,too!Thanks, the words are very good
charlie dude (10 out of 10 ) this is ace!if you don't watch this you are disturbed.
Him and Me (5 out of 10 ) You're disturbed if you don't, you're disturbed if you do. I loved and loathed this disgraceful delight of a movie in equal measure.
It has all the excitement (drudgery) of a rip-roaring (boring) sci-fi yarn.
Wonderfully written (dross) with a genuine lyrical beauty (aberration). It strikes a chord in anyone who has ever loved and lost (pffffff!)
P.S: I'm sure I'd be a schizophrenic but this guy won't let me get a word in edgeways.
Darth Scrotus (1 out of 10 ) Complete and utter garbage.
Erectmymonument (1 out of 10 ) star wars is for fat nerds
Ashley (10 out of 10 ) First off, I'm a huge SW fan, I loved the Episodes 4,5,and 6, and am also a big fan of the new ones. I know a lot of people are criticizing the new ones especially. Everone is entitled to their own opinion, but I thought the movies were very well done although not all of it links up(I.E. Why does Leia remeber her mother,and Luke doesn't, Yoda didn't train Obi-Wan as a Padawan, there are a few other things I could mention) and the script was well written, if you watch the first two Episodes you know the third can not have a happy ending. I think the tragedy of how Anakin becomes Vader was very well played out, all the Actors did an amazing job (although I wasn't to fond of Natalie Portman's acting until Episode 2). George Lucas is a very talented writer and Director, and for those of you who didn't like it, I'm sure he's done other movies that you would like...besides, you have to be seriously disturbed to not like starwars.
brett (10 out of 10 ) best movie ever
yorka (5 out of 10 ) Hmmm... worst star wars movie ever... too much ridicolous scenes and stuff
Lvader (10 out of 10 ) that was the best one of them all.
Yoda (10 out of 10 ) Awesome, it was.
Yice Frey (10 out of 10 ) That movie was exellent! There was nothing majorly wrong with it. Have you read some of the reviews? Some know what they talk about, some don't.
Bye, bye 4 now!
Limey (4 out of 10 )
It was like watching Dawson's Creek set in space - everyone with perfect teeth and verbal diarrhoea!
A (1 out of 10 ) I would have given this a zero, but one is the lowest option. Oh Well
Graf (10 out of 10 ) Excellent!
the smore (8 out of 10 ) I liked the movie. Ive got to say though that it wasnt quite as good as I expected. I was very dissapointed with the YODA VS SIDIOUS fight. It was not nearly as good as episodeII's. and he gave up far 2 quickly. I definitely loved R2 D2, he was sheer comedy at parts. also it definitely led up to episodes 4 , 5 , 6. another dissapointing thing however was that all the jedi masters could be quite so stupid as to be killed by 4/5 clone troopers, when a youngling took down at least 4 ?
anyway YODA RULES
yoda's sidekick (9 out of 10 ) i liked this movie. it wasn't as good as episode 2, but it was good.
Emperor Palpatine (10 out of 10 ) Terrific, thrilling and beautiful final installment.
Best of the prequels by far.
marko (10 out of 10 ) i loved the script and to all you idiots out there star wars is not for nerds it may sound nerdish but it's not it's the best movies ive ever seen and i always talk about it and ppl wanna beat me up for it lmao!!! im jks !!! still ppl find it annoying lol i loved it!!!
BOB (10 out of 10 ) The movie was really awesome. Too bad Anakin screwed himself over. By the way A and Yorka suck.
mike (6 out of 10 ) The dialog works in this script in its written form, just does NOT translate very well on screen. Like the other prequels it was painful to watch. Im not sure if this was a problem with the actual script or the lack of direction on the set. I didnt hate the film, in fact I liked it plenty. And im a huge starwars fan, but the dialog left a lot to be desired.
Trenton (10 out of 10 ) This is a great screenplay and a great movie. A genious conclusion to this epic saga. The dialogue and rhythm is close to perfection. This is the best of the prequels!
Lee (1 out of 10 ) George Lucas is a terrible writer. What happened to this guy? ROTS is awful, it's insulting. It's as if it was written by a bunch of marketing executives who had heard about this profitable star wars thing. I used to be a star wars fan, but not any more.
Darth (10 out of 10 ) This one is the best of the Prequels.
Star Wars Forever!!!
MT (10 out of 10 ) A beautifully written screenplay. Classic and epic, a perfect conclusion to best movie saga in history. This is perfection. The craft of screenwriting elevated to art!
Milo (1 out of 10 )
The craft of screenwriting elevated to art - give me a break! Was it not Harrison Ford who once told George Lucas: "George, you can write this shit but you can't say it."
MT, please don't call it art. Say that it's a great popcorn movie, a great Saturday matinee, even a great way to fill three hours that could have been completely wasted reading a book. But for everybody's sanity please don't call it art!
Jesse (3 out of 10 ) Just as I feared, no Vader till the last 5 seconds of the film is really lame. I am forced to listen to Hayden smash his way through the worst dialogue possibly ever written. Yoda vs the Emperor, give me a break that was just plain uncalled for and silly to watch at best. The Emperor who is a grande character is reduced to a laughing stock in this film. General Grievous may have possibly been the silliest thing I have ever seen in a sci-fi film, a coughing robot! The scenes between Padme and Skywalker were some of the worst dialogue I have ever read. CGI effects do not impress me and never have. No matter how digital and awesome they get I can still tell it's cartoonish, am I the only one?. Now the scenes of Darth Vader finally coming to life were brilliant. The Emperors line "can you hear me Lord Vader" brought me back to childhood and my love of Star Wars was restored, until the voice of James Earl was abused for the final time with the silliest lines ever. The characters sullied by the dialogue. I know they say "well let's see you do a better job with it you armchair fanboy". You know what, my cat Smoky could have written a better script. It practically writes itself now and Lucas still messed it up. Thanks for the original trilogy Lucas, this new trilogy was not needed and it mostly sucked badly. Next time take the millions of dollars you made and shell out for some writers who know how to pace a story. P.S. - Could you ease off on the CGI a bit, I mean why even put real actors in there?
Taylor (10 out of 10 ) This movie was awesome, definitely the best one yet!
Padme's friend (9 out of 10 ) COOL. The book was great and the movie was too.
Brandon Salkil (10 out of 10 ) This is for he/her or whatever the hell you are "Jesse", what do you mean it sucks, YOU SUCK! It's clear to me that you don't pay attention. Just because it's the final installment doesn't mean it has to have mind blowing sceens. Also of course you're not going to see Darth Vader until the last minutes of the movie you ass clown. Revenge of the Sith is the story of Anakin choosing his destiny, over himself and the survival of his wife. His choices confuse him and break him down, beautifully done if I say so myself. So news for you "Jesse", if the movie is so bad then I would like to see you with a goddamn camera and make it better, ummmm! Let's see, can you direct the movie and beat the 200 thousand dollar box office total? Don't think so!
Landon (2 out of 10 ) I'm not sure why people call this the best one yet. Yes, it COULD and SHOULD have been the best one yet. The story that needed to be told SHOULD have been the best story, but the way Lucas did it was lame.
Brandon, I don't think George Lucas took a camera and went out and shot a movie. He had over 100 million dollars and a giant crew to do this. And it doesn't matter if it was complete trash, if it's Star Wars, the fan base is big enough that people are going to go see it no matter what. I'm an aspiring film maker/screenwriter and if I was given the Star Wars trilogy I could have done a better job. Not because I'm full of myself, but CGI effects aren't what it's all about. The only reason you should use CGI is to help tell the story. He did it to beat Lord of the Rings (which he didn't and will never do).
All in all this was a pretty good movie, if it was just another movie. But it wasn't. We've been waiting for this link since the original came out and the last three movies have been just lame CGI*o*rama movies that had no character build up, just a background story and that's it.
George Lucas thinks that because he created three good movies in his life time that he's set and that people will like this crap because of all the CGI effects. That's not why we liked the first ones, George! We liked the first ones because it was something we'd never seen before, it was a great story and better than anything of that day in time. Not because it was a CGI breakthrough!
Joel (10 out of 10 ) I love Episode 3 it's the best movie ever!
Snaitf Kenobi (10 out of 10 ) GREVIOUS IS NOT A COUGHING ROBOT! He is a KALEESH who almost got killed in a ship crash so they saved him by making him part-robot. In fact, if you ARTARDS had bothered to look you could see his eyes in the closeup in the Obi/Grevious fight! They're real eyes, not robot eyes. And his lungs were permanently damaged in the crash, and THAT'S why he coughs. Even my brother got that, and he's... well, he's due home any minute now, so I'd better not say ^_^. But I don't see why people don't like this. I thought it was awesome. And why do people think that Yoda/Palpatine fight. Have you seen the OT lately? Definitely an improvement. Besides, if you don't like the script, why don't you try and make it yourself? (And no stealing lines, because then it's not original!). Not very easy is it? I mean think about it: any time you write something, SOMEONE is going to hate it and if it's as highly anticipated as a Star Wars film then a lot of people are going to hate it, even if it's friggin Shakespeare simply for the fact that they aren't open-minded enough to even try to enjoy it! I mean writing is harder than you think, especially for epic movies like this. And if you thought this was a bad script, HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE FREAKIN CORE?! That was the worst script I have ever seen, it was like a 2 year old was writing it! Bleh! Anyways, don't be offended if I wailed on you, I just loved this movie and I hate it when people criticize things for no reason. Especially when the reason they don't like it is obviously wrong. Coughing robot, HONESTLY... (Rolls eyes). Anyways, I still love this movie, I especially loved the deleted scene with Ani and Obi using secret symbols. It was so cute and it made the ending even sadder. AW the poor little kids! Anyways, this is Snaitf Kenobi signing off.
billy (10 out of 10 ) May the force be with us forever :]
Mike T (10 out of 10 ) This is the best of the Star Wars prequel screenplays. I've yet to read better dialogue from any screenwriter than Lucas. He really knows his thing and he's doing it. Too bad there will not be any more SW movies. As someone else said: ROTS is screenwriting elevated to art!
Michael (10 out of 10 ) This is the best screenplay that I've ever read (and I've read a lot!) and also the best Star Wars prequel screenplay. Why this was not nominated for an Oscar for best original screenplay beats me.
jessica west (10 out of 10 ) This is one of my favorite Star Wars movies along with The Phantom Menace and Attack Of The Clones. Out of those, Revenge Of The Sith is number 1. I went to see this movie last summer in July. I liked it when Padme told Anakin that she was pregnant. I also liked that lightsaber duel between Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Freddy101 (10 out of 10 ) Loved this movie, best 1 of all 6!
Gaston (10 out of 10 ) The script is cool. Master Yoda's scripts partially paid off the missing scripts. So, I will pen-off my comments.
Master Obi-Wan (10 out of 10 ) This movie rocks and I love reading the script. It's my fave of all the saga, along with Phantom Menace. Maybe it's because I wasn't alive when the originals came out, but I love the prequels just as much as the first 3. There are some really amazing scenes in this film, especially those between Obi-Wan & Anakin and Padme & Anakin. I cried watching the movie and I cried reading the script. It's so sad. I especially love Padme's funeral and the very end on Tatooine.
Any fan should read the script. And they should have left in Qui-Gon's part. I also would have liked to see the extended space battle beginning. But I can't complain, it is great the way it is.
ApocalypseGirl (4 out of 10 ) I think Sith would have been better with just the visuals and no dialogue. I cannot believe how unfeeling and unpassionate these stiff words are, especially considering the pivotal nature of this particular film in the series (that would be Anakin into Darth Vader).
Baxter J Chamberlain (10 out of 10 ) It is very very good. The best bit was when Anakin was on fire. My favourite quote: Obi-wan - You have allowed this dark lord to twist your mind until now. Until now you have become the very thing you swore to destroy.
Spencer (7 out of 10 ) It was good, I guess. I mean why wasn't it written like an actual screenplay? And it had a bunch of scenes that were not in the movie, if you are going to bring a script you might as well just keep the stuff in the movie and screw the extra stuff. Besides that, wicked script!
Kay (10 out of 10 ) This is a great movie and script and I disagree with anyone who thinks Star Wars fans are nerds. At least they have a hobby. Great job Lucas, keep up the good work!
Duncan Salazar (10 out of 10 ) Superb, as always. Looking forward to the TV series.
DYLAN RHONEY (9 out of 10 ) George is da bomb.
Omkar (9 out of 10 ) This was better than episodes 1 and 2 but not episodes 4, 5 and 6.
Sohil (9 out of 10 ) This movie is the best Star Wars movie except for Episodes one and two.
Somebody (10 out of 10 ) A great movie, even better than the originals in my opinion.
Demi (10 out of 10 ) First when I tried to find the script on the web because I've all the movies except this one I really wanted to know what it was like. I got a little surprised that Anikin was the bad guy later in the movie. I mean who kills his own wife. When I got to see the movie at my uncles, it showed more detail but my brother was having growing pains so I missed the middle part because I had to help my grandma take care of him. I hope George Lucas would make a 7, 8, 9. Soon!
amber (10 out of 10 ) There's a lot of romance.
raechal (10 out of 10 ) BRILLIANT! Hayden is great and so totally hot. He can come to my dark side any time.
amber (5 out of 10 ) They took a lot of Padme being a senator out of the movie.
teenie (10 out of 10 ) Even though some things in this movie were left unanswered (like when Padme tells Anakin that Obi Wan came to talk to her before he left to Utapau. Does anyone know why this happened without being shown?) this movie was the best of the trilogy.
Juke Skywalker (4 out of 10 ) This script seems good only by comparison to the other two prequels. It still suffers from fatal bouts of "Prequelitis" (Wooden dialogue). On top of that, it's far too preachy (not to mention illogical & inconsistent to boot). All of the "Lucas ruined my childhood" stuff needs to stop though. He didn't ruin my childhood. The original trilogy is brilliant. What he ruined were the prequels and all of the promise they once had so long, long ago.
Yoda (7 out of 10 ) Great movie but bad dialogue.
teenie (10 out of 10 ) This message is for amber. I read your last entry and I don't think it matters that audiences didn't see Padme as senator that much in the movie because the movie wasn't about her, it was about Anakin becoming Darth Vader and if you want to see her as senator just watch the deleted scenes on the DVD and that should answer your response.
teenie (5 out of 10 ) As much as I love this movie and the actors I want to mention to all of you readers that as much as any of you might think Hayden Christensen is HOT, did you know that he is actually considering to quit acting to become an architect!
teenie (8 out of 10 ) This movie is still great but I have to comment on all the controversal crap that went on after the movie came out when people said that Lucas didn't do a good job of showing that Padme died from the lost will to live but from being choked by Vader. Yeah sure she probably still could have lived because she had no physical injuries but it was the emotional injuries that caused her to die. She couldn't believe that Anakin did all those horrible things and that he changed just because of her. The romance of the movie of course played a big part of Anakin's downfall but I think its the fact that he 'died' for Padme just liked Jack did for Rose in Titanic. Although the other half of the relationship (meaning the female) didn't die in Titanic. So I'm not the kind of person to give this movie a really low rating but things that this make people see another side even though that person still thinks the movie is 10/10.
Alan (2 out of 10 ) A long time ago in a galaxy not so far away there was a superb trilogy of movies called Star Wars, which captured the imagination of millions of people and changed the film industry forever. Two decades later their creator George "The Force" Lucas decided firstly to start pointlessly messing around with the originals and then came up with a project for a trilogy of prequels, secretly titled "The Search for More Money". This caused great excitement among fans of the original movies, resulting in the sale of much branded merchandise, even before the first prequel had been seen. Unfortunately, this first film "The Phantom Menace" turned out to be crap, being notable only for the introduction of possibly the most irritating character in movie history, Jar Jar Binks, who instantly soared to the top of all true fans' death lists. Relatively undaunted the fanbase consoled themselves with the thought that things could only get better in the next installment. Indeed so powerful was the wish for an improvement that some people actually convinced themselves they had witnessed just such a pickup in quality when the second film "Attack of the Clones" was finally released. Sadly they were deluding themselves, as this second film was in fact even crapper than the first. But what the heck, it still made money so the project was still on track. Then came the third and most crucial installment, the one which would link all the story strands from the prequels into the originals. Surely, everyone said, the almighty Lucas can't bollocks this one up. How wrong they were. "Revenge of the Sith" turns out to be easily the crappest of all the Star Wars movies. The dialogue is quite incredibly stilted, while the central "romance" of Anakin and Padme feels as flaccid as a fillet of haddock. The notion that he becomes the most evil guy in the galaxy just to save her, is about as convincing as a chain letter for a Nigerian pyramid scheme. Equally risible is the idea that she then dies of nothing other than a broken heart. Meanwhile, the CGI effects sequences are even more cartoonish and interminable than ever before. In fact at times it doesn't seem like a movie at all. Rather it feels like being forced to watch another person (i. E. George Lucas) playing a video game and few things are more tedious than that. Simply put the Star Wars prequels are all turkeys- turkeys that are now well and truly stuffed with money gobbled up from cinema goers and DVD buyers. A long time ago I along with millions of others, imagined a back story to Star Wars that was a damn-site more interesting than any of these prequels. Now I'll just have to try and forget I ever saw them.
Jonathan (10 out of 10 ) Mr. Lucas has captured our hearts over the past thirty years and the last prequel to A NEW HOPE is the best by far.
Thank you Mr. Lucas we appreciate your work.
Spencer (10 out of 10 ) WOW. I am amazed those who dislike this movie are afraid to leave their real names. Also, WHAT WIERD IDEA WAS IT TO GIVE THE DROIDS VOICES? No. Nonononono, should never be done! I love the movie overall so I give a 10. But clean up your act when you want to impress the fans. No droids voices. No more short-cuts on special effects. Hinthint. He did in a few places. So please don't talk me down.
slave boy (10 out of 10 ) This is absolutely the best movie in the world but it isn't the shooting script, oh well. I see this movie at least once a week and I cried last time I saw it. I mean I was bawling my eyes out at the mustafar scenes. I find the parts that show anakin and obi-wan like brothers, I want to thank lucas for making the best freakin' movie of all time!
GeneralGrievousFan1991 (10 out of 10 ) STAR WARS ROCKS! I don't give a fudge what other people say, because they have no life and they stink, because they don't know that Star Wars is the best Science Fiction movies of them all. I say that this is the best of all the 6 movies.
Den (7 out of 10 ) Yeah, I think the movie was alright but what is it with Master Yoda? I mean the guy walks with a cane but when he has a light sabre in his hands he is so energetic. Anyway the film was pretty good Lucas. You're a talented director and may the force be with you!
slave boy (10 out of 10 ) Yoda walks with a cane because he can't support himself but he calls on the Force to do battles. Did any of you out there see the most popular star wars character list? Anakin is listed like ninth and obi-wan didn't even make the cut, that sucks.
Ryan (10 out of 10 ) I really enjoy the Star Wars movies. I even missed out on my senior prom just to go and watch this movie with my mom.
unpleasable (5 out of 10 ) This movie could be better. Take the windu death scene. One second, anakin's an innocent spectator, then he cuts off windu's arm, then he's like, oh crap, what have I done? Then suddenly, it's yipee, I'm lord vader. The name sucks but hey who cares. Average film, but worthy of a saga ending.
feendeezy (8 out of 10 ) Why are all the people who criticize lucas' writing ability in such desperate need of a spell and grammar checker?
Lucas is a billionaire, you write poorly on message boards. Who is the winner in that scenario?
The Senate (10 out of 10 ) Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis "the wise"? It's not a story the Jedi would tell you. It's a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midi-chlorians to create life. He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful... The only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Plagueis never saw it coming. It's ironic he could save others from death, but not himself.
Renold (7 out of 10 ) I give it 7 stars. Not bad but not too good either. Also people giving these 1 and 2 stars are edgy and think that criticizing George Lucas' writing and directing skills would add to their abysmal "accomplishments" in reviews. You should be ashamed to call yourselves reviewers.
