Surly Curmudgeon

   The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.

    Star Wars: Episode III

    Thumbs down.

    Cheesy dialog, bland characterization, so-so plot. The only remotely interesting thing was Anakin's fall, and I think that probably could have been done better. His atrocities went from small to large a little too quickly. And call me bloodthirsty, but I really thought he should wind up falling in the lava rather than completing his physical transformation in the way that he did.

    The lightsaber battles were cool, but really couldn't rescue the rest of it. At least they managed to tie everything in with the next/first movie.
